The PlayStation 5 has now sold over 9 million units since launching eight months ago. As confirmed by VGChartz, Sony's newest console barely reached this latest milestone, coming in at exactly 9,000,103 units, placing it comfortably ahead of Microsoft's Xbox Series X|S at 5.33 million.
While PS5 previously doubled Xbox Series' sales figures back in May, this indicates that momentum is still going strong. However, it's worth remembering that the ongoing semiconductor shortage is still creating stock issues for tech manufacturers, so demand may not be accurately reflected here.
