Sony has revealed that the PlayStation 5 is its most profitable console ever. However, the PlayStation 4 still makes up half of Sony's active player base, with 49 million monthly users out of a total of 97 million.

In a recent presentation, Hideaki Nishino, CEO of SIE's Platform Business Group, noted that the PS5's income is close to matching all previous consoles combined. He highlighted that while the PS4 remains important, PS5 players are more engaged, and this trend is expected to continue.

PS5 users have logged 2.4 billion hours of gameplay compared to 1.4 billion on the PS4. Since its launch in 2020, the PS5 has sold 56 million units, with users spending significantly more on add-on content, services, and accessories, but 12% less on full games.

Hermen Hulst, CEO of SIE’s Studio Business Group, mentioned that Sony's future games will include both popular franchises and ambitious new titles from successful studios. Sony also plans to expand its live service games and explore new opportunities to attract different audiences.

Rumors suggest a PlayStation 5 Pro is in the works, expected to be 45% faster than the current PS5, although Sony has not yet confirmed this.
