Aside from this feat by PS Plus, Sony also confirmed that an additional 3.3 million PS5 units were shipped during Q2, overall reaching 13.4 million lifetime/ 104 million monthly active users for PlayStation were noted, and 76.4 million units of software were sold, including 7.6 million 1st party games.
That all happened despite the ongoing console stock issues, due to a semiconductor shortage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. There's still hope for more stable production of the chipsets and the console itself, though this shortage of consoles is expected to last until 2023.
