PlayStation 5 has already shipped more than 38 million units and its sales rate is at one of its best moments. Because of this, Jim Ryan, head of Sony Interactive Entertainment, believes that the console will be a milestone for Sony.
The manager was optimistic about the sales that PlayStation 5 will accumulate in the coming years, so he gave his forecast and explained why he is confident that the console will be a resounding commercial success.

PS5 will exceed 100 million units sold, according to Jim Ryan
At a recent investor meeting, Ryan talked about the future of PlayStation 5 and its sales. The manager was satisfied with the 38 million units sold so far, but made it clear that they will go much further in the coming years.
The manager expects to sell at least another 70 million units of the console, so he wants PlayStation 5 to ship at least 108 million units in its useful life. From their perspective, they can do it without a problem since PS4 had a huge user base and many of them will make the jump to the current system sooner or later.
On the other hand, Ryan believes that many new players will join the PlayStation ecosystem, which will contribute to reaching the goal of exceeding 100 million consoles sold.
“Yeah, I would anticipate that over the life of PlayStation 5, we should be able to get over a figure of 70 million on top of the 38 million (that we’ve achieved). The reason I say that is the 70 million that I think is the base of existing PlayStation 4 users,” said the manager.
If PlayStation 5 reaches at least 108 million units sold, then it would leave behind PS3 (87.4 million) and the first PlayStation (102.4 million). However, it would fall behind PS4 (117.2 million) and, of course, PS2 (155 million).
