The PS5 Standard Edition will no longer be sold at a loss, Sony reveals

Hiroki Totoki, Sonys Chief Financial Officer, revealed during the company’s latest overnight financial briefing that the PS5 Standard Edition will no longer be sold at a loss.

Meanwhile, the PS5 Digital-Only Edition, which retails for $399, is currently on track to offset its loss through several hardware sales, including several peripherals and the PS4, which continues to attract interest despite sharing the market with its successor.

Sony revealed during the same earnings call that it is now on track to meet its PS5 shipment forecast for the current fiscal year, thanks to the company acquiring the necessary chipsets for production.

The hardware manufacturer confirmed last month that the PS5 is the fastest console in its history to hit the 10 million sales threshold, which is impressive given the delivery issues that have plagued the system since launch.

Looking ahead, Sony is also producing its successor to the PSVR, which is known internally as the NGVR. You can view some of the reported leak specs on the device here.
