Sony Data Highlights Potential Gaming Divide

A tweet from journalist Stephen Totilo unveiled Sony's statistics: with over 59 million PlayStation 5 units sold since its launch in November 2020, and a total user base exceeding 118 million, more than half of gamers still rely on PlayStation 4. This demographic divide means that a significant portion of gamers may find themselves unable to access GTA 6 upon release.

While many PlayStation 4 users may not be interested in GTA 6, there's undoubtedly a substantial audience eagerly awaiting its arrival. With the game set for release in late 2025, there's ample time for players to consider upgrading to ensure they don't miss out on the excitement.
