The console’s sales have been boosted by a number of factors, including the release of several highly anticipated exclusive titles, such as Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which has already sold over 5 million units in just 11 days.
Sony is also expected to release a PS5 Slim console in the coming days, which should further increase demand for the console. With the holiday season approaching, Sony is well-positioned to have a record-breaking year for PS5 sales.
