This number was heavily bolstered by the launch of The Last of Us Part 2 and Ghost of Tsushima in the same quarter, the former of which sold 4 million copies in its first three days and the latter which is the fastest-selling new IP from PlayStation ever.
PlayStation Plus subscriptions have risen to 45 million users, though there was no update on the number of PlayStation Now subscribers.
