PlayStation Store: Spider-Man Miles Morales, Ratchet and Kena among 2021 bestsellers

What might have been even more meaningful in measuring the success of games would have been to rank based on revenue (which Steam and the USA charts do each month) rather than the number of copies sold. . We will say that the two schools are equal, but we can not help thinking about it when we see Among Us so well placed when the game was released in December and costs 3.99 euros. The presence of The Crew 2 in PS4 Best Sellers also shows that a volume ranking like this is more likely to be disrupted by sales.

But let’s get to the point with the best-selling PS5 games list to begin with. The sports games that are FIFA, NBA 2K, Madden NFL and MLB The Show as always occupy the best places in the company of the last opus of resident Evil, Call of Duty, Battlefield and far cry. Beyond these big franchises, we note the success of the exclusives put forward by PlayStation like Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Deathloop and Returnal, even though Gamekult’s readers’ game of the year only made it into the North American top 20. But the one who is doing well is Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, present in the top 5 on both continents.

The launch game from Insomniac Games has established itself as a real barometer for the PS5, having made the yo-yo in the charts all year according to the availability of the console. A bit like a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Switch, all things considered, the superhero has become the game to which a large part of the new buyers of the console are turning automatically. The phenomenon has been going on since November 2020 and it is obviously not the colossal success of the film Spider-Man: No Way Home who came to play spoilers.

On PlayStation 4, the presence of general public franchises that are GTA, Call of Duty, Minecraft, FIFA and others NBA 2K is even stronger, especially since players are now clearly turning to the PS5 (when they have that chance) for when it comes to purchasing new products. So count the number of games released in 2021 in the ranking below, to see. Extending the production of the machine might not be a bad idea, but it is obviously not on PS4 that the big news of 2022 like Horizon Forbidden West and God of War Ragnarok will do most of their sales.
