Amid a pandemic-driven surge in video-game popularity, Sony, the Tokyo-based entertainment and electronics company, unveiled one of the year’s most in-demand gadgets: the PlayStation 5. The console, one of the largest and most powerful ever made, was released in November; by the end of December, Sony had sold 4.5 million units, despite pandemic-related supply-chain issues. Elsewhere in the Sony empire, the company’s animated film Demon Slayer, released in October in Japan, became the country’s highest-grossing movie of all time. It was released in the U.S. in April.
