Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan has said that a quarter of PlayStation 5 owners never owned a PlayStation 4.Ryan made the statement in interviews with GQ and The Washington Post to promote the announcement of PlayStation VR 2 and talk about the state of the PlayStation 5 in 2021.

"One in four of those who have bought a PlayStation 5 do not have a PS4 [...] So it’s really nice that we’re able to bring in people from outside," Ryan told GQ. This suggests that PlayStation has managed to bring a lot of new players into its ecosystem with its next-gen launch, or at least take in a lot of players who may have chosen other consoles or stuck with PC in previous generations.

For some context, the PlayStation 5 shipped 4.5 million units in 2020, matching the launch run of the PlayStation 4 back in 2013. Demand is still outstripping supply for the console, and Ryan told GQ that Sony is "working as hard as we possibly can" to remedy the situation, noting the semiconductor shortage and entirely-online distribution as considerations that are holding back production.

This is all part of a major news blast from Sony, as the company revealed PlayStation VR 2 earlier today, and announced in Ryan's GQ interview that more PlayStation exclusives will be coming to PC, reportedly starting with Days Gone in the Spring. Elsewhere in the same interview, we learned that Gran Turismo 7 is being pushed back to 2022.

I wouldn't blame those lems. After all the flops that came out for the xb last gen, I would of jumped out of airplane with no parachute just to buy a PS5.

When they saw what MS does to their flagship title, jumping ship is perfectly understandable.

@daredevils2k: Your free fall jump would have lasted longer than ps5’s controllers it seems.....

https://gamerant.com/ps5-dualsense-controller-lasts-417-hours/

417 hours? That’s going to hurt more than jumping from a plane without a parachute.

You should worry more about losing your games to PC than whatever's going on at Xbox land.

@Juub1990: how is anyone losing games to pc if:

1 - it's sony's decision to put their games on PC.

2 - the games will still be available on ps?

No one is losing games, if anything, more people are having access to them.😎

I think people on either side will take what they can get their hands on. At least twice now seen people come in asking for a PS5 leave with a Series S instead.

I mean.... from a hardware perspective the PS4 was crap the for the entire generation.

The PS5 is actually a good computer. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Nothing in the article said they were from XBOX and yet OP makes the title what it is.

A few possible places these users came from

-new to console space entirely

-decided to start with a new Gamer ID

-Bought all the consoles

Every thread/post from him is MS DOOMED.

sure damage control that is it. OR the article doesn't say what the OP claims.

I hope you enjoy playing games on the PS5 in 1080p/60 since it cant even handle a last gen title any better than that

At this point I think people are just buying whatever they can get their hands on. I want a PS5, but if I saw a Series X sitting on a store shelf, I'd be tempted to buy it.

Yeah, scalpers bought them, opened the boxes and used every single PS5 they got AND made a new account for each of them. You've reached a new low SW. LOL.

Quite a few bought it to sell it forward, but he must be talking 'bout people who have actually booted one up, played and created a PSN account.
