Sony shared its Q3 2020 fiscal year financial results, with a massive quarter for the PlayStation brand in its Game & Network Services segment. We've known for a while that the PS5 was selling well, with Sony previously confirming that the PS5 launch was Sony's biggest console launch ever. Now, Sony has confirmed that 4.5 million PS5 consoles were sold through December 31, 2020.

Overall sales during the quarter increased 40% year-over-year to 883.2 billion yen, or about $8.4 billion. With the challenges of meeting consumer demand, Sony noted that "We continue to do everything in our power to ship as many units as possible to customers who are waiting for a PS5." Restocks of the PS5 at various retailers remain sporadic for now.

There's a large lineup of exclusive software slated to arrive for the PS5 later in 2021, including Returnal, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, Horizon Forbidden West and a new God of War.
