Sony Corp. expects the PlayStation 5 to outpace the launch performance of the PlayStation 4 -- but each unit sale will make a "negative contribution" to the company's earnings In a call with investors, Sony CFO Hiro Totoki said the company was "aiming to exceed" the PlayStation 4's 7.6 million units sales in the fiscal year of its launch. The PS4 launched in most global territories in November 2013, but it wasn't released in Japan until February 22, 2014 -- less than six weeks before the close of the fiscal year accounting period. PlayStation 5, however, will launch in Japan next month alongside the majority of global territories -- barring South America and China. Like the analysts, Sony Corp. anticipates that PS5 will at least match the launch performance of its predecessor, despite the disruptions caused to production by the COVID-19 pandemic -- a claim supported by PlayStation boss Jim Ryan's comments that the PS5 was pre-ordered more in 12 hours than PS4 was in 12 weeks. Totoki also said the company expects to surpass the 100 million unit lifetime sales of PS4 -- which has now sold around 114 million units. However, in response to another question from investors, Totoki added that the earnings contribution from the PS5 would be "a negative contribution for the time being" -- implying that each unit may be selling at a loss.
