Earnings for PS4 games almost doubled during the pandemic!

Unsurprisingly, people have spent a lot money in video games during the pandemic Covid-19. In its latest financial gains, Sony stated that 91 million PS4 games sold during the three-month period, until June 30, 2020. This is an increase 83% at 49,8 million sales reported for the same quarter last year.

The company's exclusive games also had impressive sales, delivering 18,5 million copies, which were boosted by its long-awaited sequel. The Last of Us, N. In the same period last year, sales were at 11,7 million.

Many PS4 owners were "stuck" indoors, so it's no surprise that 74% of games purchased electronically in the previous quarter. In addition, the subscription service PS Plus has now reached 44,9 million members, up from 41,5 million.

While the software is growing, the hardware continues to decline. The company sold 1,9 million PS4s consoles during the quarter, and may have increased from the previous quarter (1,4 million) but decreased by 41% compared to the same period last year (3,2 million). The old system will soon be replaced by PS5, which is scheduled to be released during the holiday season.
