Sony reduces the projected number of PS5 units to be sold in FY23

Sony is still struggling to strike a balance between the supply and demand of the PlayStation 5. Since the launch, Sony has shipped almost 20 million consoles, of which 11.5 million units were sold last year. The company expected to sell 22.6 million units in the current fiscal year. Sony has cut short its prediction and now it expects to sell 18 million units due to the semiconductor shortage across the globe.  

Sony also revealed that they’ve more than doubled their Q4 operation profits as compared to Q4 of FY21 when the company had a profit of around 513.7 million. Sony earned a $1.06 operating profit in the fourth quarter of the fiscal year 2022. Sony mentioned that its profits were spearheaded by the performance of its gaming and network services business verticals.
