A STAGGERING 4.5million Playstation 5 consoles were sold in the last two months of 2020.
Sony released this impressive figure alongside its latest earnings report.
The PS5 launched on November 12 and fans scrambled to get their hands on one.
This wasn’t an easy task and many are still waiting for their chance to purchase the console.
Originally, Sony had only planned on the production of five million PS5 consoles by the end of March 2021.
However, with record-breaking demand Sony is said to be increasing production and will be aiming to make and sell a lot more in that space of time.
It now appears on track to ship 7.6 million PS5 consoles by the end of the financial year in March.
According to Gaming Bolt, Sony is maintaining its ability to produce this many consoles for its eager fans.
We’ll have to wait until next month to see if Sony manages to pull this off.
Disappointed PlayStation fans made headlines over the Christmas period when their PS5 orders were stolen or they were sent the wrong item instead.
Amazon came under fire after furious PS5 customers said they received the wrong orders on launch day – including cat food, loo roll and a foot massager.
One customer even claimed that a driver stopped outside their house, claimed to deliver the package and then drove off.
PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X – when did they launch and how much do they cost?
Microsoft launched the Xbox Series X and its smaller, cheaper sibling, the Series S, on November 10.
The release date covered the UK, US, Australia and a bunch of other countries worldwide.
The disc-free Series S costs £249/$299, while the Xbox Series X comes in at £449/$499.

UK gamers had to wait until November 19 to order one of the consoles.
The PS5 proper costs £449.99/$499.99, while the digital edition comes in at £359/$399.
