Rakuten analyst Norio Imanaka predicts the PS5 could sell 200 to 300 million units in just 5 to 6 years. That number is quite outlandish for a couple of reasons. First a little perspective: The PS5 would have to sell 40 million consoles every year for 5 years to reach 200 million. The PS4 never broke more than 21 million sales a year, and in fiscal 2016, the PS4 hit a peak in sales of 20.3 million.
Second, those numbers would easily dethrone the industry’s best-selling console of all time. According to official Sony figures, the PS2 has sold 155 million units worldwide after 13 years on the market. According to these predictions, the PS5 will outperform the PS2 by 45 million units in less than half of the available market time.
The PS5 is also more difficult to manufacture than the PS4 thanks to the complex 7nm + SoC used in the next-gen system. This could result in lower production volumes over time. However, Sony plans to deliver and grow more PS5 sales in the first year than the PS4 at launch.
Other analysts are more conservative with their forecasts. The ampere analysis predicts that PS5 could sell 67.3 million units by 2024and says the console could drive 5 million sales in 2020 alone.
Anonymous sources tell DigiTimes that Sony expects this Sell 120 to 170 million PlayStation 5 consoles by 2025which, admittedly, is an extremely high number.
