During this week’s Sony business meeting, the newly appointed Co-CEO shared the latest updates and future strategies for the PlayStation business.

Hideaki Nishino, set to become the CEO of SIE Platform Business on June 1, stated that the PS5 is the most profitable PlayStation product to date, generating revenue close to the combined total of all other products.

Here are the relevant contents from Nishino’s conference call:

As you can see, the PlayStation 5 user base continues to grow significantly, accounting for half of our monthly active consoles.

The PlayStation 4 remains an important part of our business, but the engagement of our PlayStation 5 players is even higher than the previous generation, and we expect these trends to continue.

According to Sony’s data, PS5 users spend more on games and time than PS4 users. Sony reports that PS5 users spend more on additional content (+176%), services (+57%), and peripherals (+34%) per console, but spend 12% less on full games.
