PS5 software sales were also unveiled, where a total of 76.4 million PS5 and PS4 games were sold, with 7.6 million being exclusive titles. These figures are, however, down from 2020's Q2 sales of games which had collected 81.8 million in total and 12.8 million for first-party games.

Since the PS5's launch, Spider-Man: Miles Morales remains the best-selling exclusive with 6.5 million units sold. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and Demon's Souls follow with 1.1 million and 1.4 million sales respectively. However, it's important to remember that Miles Morales launched on PS4 as well.

PlayStation is predicted to continue its success heading into 2022, where a multitude of games like Gran Turismo 7 and God of War: Ragnarok are due. However, supply constraints may hinder Sony from achieving peak sales, as the global chip shortage is expected to last until 2023.
