Sony recently released console sales for FY22. Since its launch, the company has sold more than 19 million units of the new console. Despite this, they failed to meet their target for the final financial year.
In fiscal year 22, Sony sold 11.5 million units of the PlayStation 5. This was the first time the console had completed a year of sales. The console was released in late 2020. Sony was targeting to sell 14.8 million units in the last fiscal year. The Japanese company fell short of nearly 3.3 million units. That’s more than 22 percent less than what Sony had hoped to achieve. The company has been facing a crisis due to the lack of components. Despite a relatively slow year, Sony has set a target of achieving sales of 18 million units in sales for the current year.
