According to GfK data published on GamesIndustry.biz, PS5 stock levels increased 56% in August compared with the previous month.
Switch sales rose 4% in August, while sales of the third-placed Xbox Series X/S “remained steady”.
Almost 880,000 consoles have been sold during the first eight months of the year, which is down nearly 36% compared with the same period in 2021.
August’s best-selling game was Saints Row, with the Xbox versions selling best.
Citing the challenging global economic environment, in late August Sony said it had “made the difficult decision” to raise PS5 prices in Europe, Japan and parts of North America, although not the US.
In the UK, PS5 prices were increased by £30, with the disc-based console now costing £479.99 and the PS5 Digital Edition now costing £389.99.
Earlier this week Sony unveiled a new Gray Camouflage accessories collection for PS5, which will begin rolling out next month.
