PS5 sales reached 20.8 million in the last financial year, with 4.5 million of those units sold during the previous quarter. The 59 million total is close to the PS4 sales at the equivalent time in its life cycle, which had sold 60 million at the time. Sony also anticipate that PS5 sales will begin to decline year-on-year as it approaches the middle of its life cycle. They have predicted sales of 18 million units in the next financial year.

Sony also confirmed that the number of active users on PlayStation systems has risen to 118 million, double the PS5 sales figure. Helldivers 2 is cited as a major part in this increase, which has sold 12 million copies across PS5 and PC. It now holds the record for fastest-selling first-party Sony title since God of War Ragnarok in 2022. In addition, total play time reached its second-highest point in history during Q4 FY2023. It was only exceeded by Q4 FY2020, where demand from the pandemic was high.

Sony have not revealed much about their plans in the coming plans in these reports. They mention Destiny 2: The Final Shape and live service game Concord as major upcoming titles. No other upcoming first-party games have been mentioned.
