On Wednesday, Sony made an announcement stating that the company hit another milestone of selling over 50 million units of PlayStation 5 since its release three years ago, in November 2020.

"Achieving this PS5 sales milestone is a testament to the unwavering support of the global PlayStation community and their passion for the incredible experiences created by the talented developers from PlayStation Studios and our partners," stated Jim Ryan, the President and CEO of Sony, in a press release. "We're grateful for all of our players who have joined the PS5 journey so far, and we're thrilled that this is the first holiday season since launch that we have a full supply of PS5 consoles – so anyone who wants to get one can get one."

We can definitely see the growth of PS5's sales and how fast it's progressing. Just in late July, we reported that Sony sold 40 million consoles, which could be attributed to increased availability of the PS5 for customers after the "rocky" supply chain environment.

Despite facing constraints, the PS5 achieved the milestone of reaching 50 million sales just one week behind the PS4, which is still an impressive accomplishment.
