Sony says that their PlayStation 5 console sales have surpassed 30 million units. They also say that the console shortage, at least for them, is essentially done and over with.

This news come via Sony Interactive Entertainment president Jim Ryan and Sony's CES conference. The 30 million units sold figure is an increase of 5 million from the last time Sony shared sales data back on November 1, 2022. Ryan says that December 2022 has been the biggest month ever for PlayStation 5 sales.

"We truly appreciate the support and patience of the PlayStation community as we managed unprecedented demand amid global challenges over the past two years.

"PS5 supply improved toward the end of last year, and I'm happy to share that December was the biggest month ever for PS5 console sales and that we have now sold than 30 million units through to consumers worldwide."

Ryan notes that the supply woes that have plagued technology industries for years now are finally easing up. He says that "everyone who wants a PS5 should have a much easier time finding one at retailers globally, starting from this point forward."

This comes after a solid year or two of a semiconductor chip shortage made all sorts of tech hardware very hard to come by. Sony was not the only company impacted by this. Other major companies such as Nintendo, Microsoft, AMD, Nvidia, Samsung, Apple, and so on were all impacted in one way or another.

It was also during this same CES conference where Sony announced Project Leonardo, an upcoming accessibility focused controller kit for the PlayStation 5. Sony also revealed that Gran Turismo 7 is getting PlayStation VR2 support and Beat Saber is headed to PlayStation VR2 as well.
