PlayStation marked a record-high 123 million active users in December, the company announced during its CES press conference on Monday.
Sony says its MAU are the estimated total number of unique accounts that played games or used services on the PlayStation Network.
The record figure follows news last month that PlayStation 5 sales have surpassed 50 million units worldwide. The console reached the sales milestone on December 9, 2023, a little over three years after it launched in November 2020.
PS4 hit 50 million sales after 160 weeks, which is one week faster than PS5 managed, although the last-gen system didn’t face the same Covid-related supply issues that have checked the current-gen console’s momentum.
PS5 has outsold Xbox Series X/S by almost 3-to-1 this year, according to data released on Wednesday by research firm Ampere Analysis.
Sony is aiming to ship 25 million PS5 consoles during its current fiscal year ending in March 2024. If achieved, it would beat a 25-year-old console sales record set when the original PlayStation shipped 22.6 million units over a 12-month period.
The platform holder recently published a list of 2024 game release highlights, including Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater and Silent Hill 2 remakes.
