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.
