PS5: Sony Expects To Break Its All-Time Annual Sales Record Next Fiscal Year - Somag News

Somag News 23 June, 2021 - 06:40am

PS5: The Japanese company aims for PlayStation 5 to become its most successful console of all time. They plan to beat the annual PS2 peak. Kenichiro Yoshida, CEO of Sony Corporation, said in a recent meeting with shareholders that his forecast for fiscal year 2022 (from April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023) is that the PlayStation 5 will break the annual sales record. of the brand and placed 22.6 million units on the market during that period.

Following the words of Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment weeks ago, where he also expressed his will to make his new console a commercial milestone, it is now Yoshida himself who makes explicit the specific figures they have in mind. According to the forecast, once normality is restored in the semiconductor market, Sony expects to manufacture and ship those 22.6 million PS5s, which would slightly exceed the previous annual peak of annual sales of a PlayStation console.

That record dates back to 1998, when the first PlayStation shipped exactly that number of consoles in twelve months. PS2, meanwhile, achieved a maximum of 22 million consoles annually in fiscal year 2002; while PS3 and PS4 shipped 14.4 million and 20 million consoles in 2010 and 2016, respectively.

The Japanese giant also estimates that, with this forecast, PS5 will be able to close the second best fiscal year for a PlayStation console. During its first non-full fiscal year (2020/21), Sony’s new platform sold 7.8 million consoles, thus surpassing 7.6 million PS4s. Now, in a year 2021-22 marked by the crisis of semiconductor materials and with an unprecedented demand, PlayStation 5 will exceed the 14.8 million PlayStation 4 that it managed to register in fiscal year 2014, the current best record in a second year.

It should be said that PS4 has sold a total of 115.9 million units until March 31, 2021 since its launch; the second most successful PlayStation console in history; only behind the 155 million PS2, accumulated in its entire useful life.

I PlayStation Plus from July 2021 Are almost upon us, so we come to the common question of these times, viz When will they be announced I Free games for PS4 and PS5 Next month, for Sony service subscribers?

Although not entirely sure of some of the surprises that have come out before, the calendar suggests a standard procedure for this PS Plus distribution: so the announcement should take place as usual on the last Wednesday of the month, or June 30, 2021, Probably 17:00 or 17:30.

Free games for PS Plus subscribers should be then Available On the first Tuesday of next month, or July 6, 2021, Sony follows the standard plan now resolved for the initiative.

Precisely this date is an important clue that seems to suggest the identity of one of the free games planned for the PlayStation Plus for July 2021, which we have also reported in recent days: it may be A Blake Story: Innocence Modified, Or a redesigned version of the best action adventure created by Asobo and announced during E3 2021.

The game in question will mark the title for the PS5 on the July 2021 PS Plus list, so the other two should be revealed, which is either a cross-gen or one for the PlayStation VR and one for the PS4, lagging behind according to the classic plan.

However, we will have to wait a week until June 30, 2021 to find out the truth, the day the new free games for PS4 and PS5 will be announced. In the meantime, keep in mind that the PS20 of June 2021 is still available, namely Operation Tango (PS5), Star Wars Scratrono (PS4 and PSVR) and Virtual Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown (PS4).

Prime Day PS5 deals: live updates on Amazon's super sale for stock, games, and more

Gamesradar 22 June, 2021 - 06:52pm

Don't miss out on crucial Amazon Prime Day PS5 updates on where to find stock, cheap games, headsets, and more.

As a result, and continuing where we left off yesterday we're continuing to gather everything PS5-shaped and PS5-relevant that Prime Day has going for it - of course, including those all-important links to where you might be able to find a PS5  if Amazon decides to unleash them. It might be the best opportunity of the summer to find PS5 stock at Amazon, but we just can't be sure until it happens - we've all seen this movie before. However, there's an awful lot of buzz going around that Amazon will be getting the new Ratchet & Clank PS5 bundle online soon, so keep an eye on stock via the links below and bookmark this page to be sure you don't miss out.

But, even if the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition consoles don't turn up, there are loads of juicy discounts to sink our teeth into with PS5 Prime Day deals on games, some of the best gaming TVs, controllers, headsets, external hard drives and SSDs, and more. Actually, the Prime Day TV deals could be the headline act of the sale, if we're being frank.

It's certainly worth checking for a PS5 resupply throughout Prime Day at as many stores as you can. Amazon has briefly had smatterings of stock in June, but very much in a blink and you'll miss it kind of way.

Getting an extra PS5 controller on Prime Day is top of our to-do lists. With any luck, the recently announced Midnight Black and Cosmic Red variants will get involved. Although given they're only being released June 18, it's unlikely. The original white model on the other hand might get a deal, or perhaps a game bundle. 

So far there are no third-party controllers to choose from that will play your PS5 games. Most third-party PS4 controllers are compatible with PS5 for PS4 games, but if you're looking for a next-gen spare then the official DualSense controller is your only option.

Unlike the controllers, there are lots of options in the audio department, as shown by our roundup of the best PS5 headsets. Sony's official PS5 Pulse 3D headset is by far the most coveted option, thanks to the affordable price and PS5-friendly aesthetic, not to mention killer 3D audio. We've put together some of our other PS5 headset recommendations along with today's best prices below. We've tested all of these models and can highly recommend them. Check out our guide above if you'd like to learn more.

A recent update to the PS5 now means you can transfer those massive PS5 install files over to external hard drives to free up space on that tiny internal SSD. You can't play PS5 games from external devices, only PS4 games, so we'd recommend picking one up for your legacy titles for sure. Here are some of our favorites from our best PS5 external hard drive guide.

As things stand today, the only PS5 SSD options out there are external ones. Sony is planning a system update in the summer that will allow you to add an internal PS5 SSD to the currently vacant expansion bay. For now, let's keep things external. These will let you store PS5 games, but not run them. Your PS4 games will get similarly fast load times as if you'd installed them to the PS5 itself and you still get any Game Boost features like improved resolution and frame rates as seen on the likes of the recently-patched The Last of Us Part II.

Moving any games between one of these SSDs and the internal storage is so much quicker than regular external HDDs like the ones we mentioned above. Of course, this means SSDs are more expensive, but Prime Day SSD deals are a thing every year.

There will be ample opportunity to treat yourself with some discounted prices on the best PS5 accessories on Prime Day outside the aforementioned items too. Charging docks for the PS5 controller are a solid bet for sure.

The official one from Sony has been hard to find since the console was released, but there are a lot of third-party options out there, especially on Amazon. We can't claim to have tested them all by any means, so we'd dive into those user-reviews and star ratings on the third-party ones if you're not sure, with the bad ratings in particular usually being a good place to find out if the build quality is a bit shoddy. 

Charging docks can be a bit overkill though. Why have a chunky piece of plastic taking up space near your console when sometimes just a long charging cable will do instead. There are lots of options out there that will let you charge and play at the same time. Honestly, until Sony announced those new DualSense colors, a lot of us here at GamesRadar were content using a long cable instead of having a spare DualSense charged and good to go. We've got to have the new Cosmic Red pad though.

Other accessories like the media remote and official camera feel very much optional to the PS5 experience. With most TVs covering you for streaming and disc-based media being on the way out, a dedicated remote feels like overkill (just use the DualSense). The camera hasn't really taken off yet either. But the Prime Day PS5 deals might get you a cheeky discount.

After years of fighting it, Sony finally caves, says they will 'grow' cross-play – Destructoid

Destructoid 21 June, 2021 - 08:29am

This has been the most annoying publisher saga in recent memory. Look, Microsoft really screwed up with the whole DRM proposal last generation. They were essentially bullied out of it, and we shouldn’t forget it. But they did do an about-face, and shored up concepts like cross-play and backward compatibility to make a roaring impact on this generation. Sony then slotted into that old role nicely, fighting cross-play kicking and screaming. That might have changed, based on recent comments from PlayStation boss Jim Ryan.

Speaking to Axios, Ryan notes that they now “support and encourage cross-play” as of this past week. He explains that “that number will continue to grow,” despite trying to take a revenue cut for graciously allowing cross-play on their platform, saying that there was no point in the feature because “PlayStation the best place to play,” and insisting that cross-play doesn’t help the PlayStation brand.

This new leaf stance is seemingly at odds with a very recent public bout with Gearbox, who noted that they will not be supporting cross-play on Sony platforms. So if Ryan actually means what he says, hopefully we see actual results as soon as this year. Hopefully more public feuds and instances of publishers speaking out will help move the needle further.

Sony has been habitually putting these creators in a bad spot, forcing them to essentially explain why their game doesn’t support full cross-play, without actually saying why. Okay great, Jim! So you can flip that switch and make it happen now, right? Right?

Cyberpunk 2077 returns to PlayStation Store with a big PS4 warning

The Verge 21 June, 2021 - 05:56am

More fixes and a next-gen upgrade are on the way

Sony’s listing for Cyberpunk 2077 has a similar warning, and it goes a step further to try and dissuade PS4 owners from purchasing the game. “Purchase for use on PS4 systems is not recommended,” says Sony’s listing. “For the best Cyberpunk experience on PlayStation, play on PS4 Pro and PS5 systems.”

Users may continue to experience some performance issues with the PS4 edition while we continue to improve stability across all platforms. The PS4 Pro and PS5 versions of the game will provide the best experience on PlayStation.

Cyberpunk 2077 originally debuted in December with severe technical problems on last-generation Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. There were multiple bugs and glitches across all platforms, but some of the most severe issues were found on base Xbox One and PS4. Microsoft added a warning label on its own Xbox store, while Sony pulled Cyberpunk 2077 from its store entirely after just a week. You could still buy the physical disc version for PS4, but the missing digital version could have slowed down sales across Xbox, PC, and PlayStation.

CD Projekt Red has been gradually patching many of the early Cyberpunk 2077 issues, but it’s clear there’s still work to be done on the Xbox One and PS4 versions. A free next-gen upgrade will be available for Cyberpunk 2077 in the second half of 2021, with more fixes planned throughout the year.
