Sony sold 7.8 million PlayStation 5 consoles as of March 31. In its latest earnings report, the company mentioned the number of PlayStation Plus subscribers is now 47.6 million, a 14.7 percent increase over last year. The overall PlayStation business has a total operating profit of 342.2 billion yen for the 2020 financial year.

Sony’s last earning report revealed that the company had shipped 4.5 million PS5 units worldwide by the end of 2020. The statistic shows that in the latest quarter Sony shipped about 3.3 million PS5 units.

Although it is still difficult to buy a PS5 in many parts of the world, as the demand is far higher than Sony’s manufacturing capacity. The PS5 competes with Microsoft’s Xbox Series X.

Indian gamers have been waiting for Sony to restock the PS5 in India. With no word on the consoles coming back to shelves from Sony India, gamers in India started a petition on change.org demanding the PS5 manufacturer to not ignore the Indian gaming community.

The petition has over 6000 signatures so far.

Sony has still not launched the more affordable Digital Edition PS5 in India, which comes without a disk drive and is priced at Rs. 39,999.

Many users have resorted to buying the console in grey at higher prices.
