Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales took the cake on PS5 in the US, while Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War took top honors in the EU.
Miles is killing it as expected. Beating out a COD in its debut month isn't easy. Great to see Demon's Souls, TLOU2, and Sackboy all doing well too. Sad that Sackboy didn't make top 20 on PS4 in either region though. Almost feels like it was a waste to put it on PS4.
Honestly, they could have made Sackboy a PS5 exclusive and I think it would have gotten more hype and maybe even more sales eventually.
Spiderman outselling COD and Demon's Souls outselling AC, even if just by one spot each, is pretty cool.
The similarities and differences between regions are really interesting. In the EU Demon's Souls lost by one spot to AC and in NA it won by one spot. God Of War, The Last Of Us 2, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Ghost of Tsushima all seem to be doing very well on a continual basis. Long live single-player (well, I suppose it's hard to know if people are mostly buying Red Dead for single-player still)
Yep. I think one of the biggest things Sony achieved this gen was continuing success with their first party games. In the PS3 era a first party game might sell well at launch, but it would quickly slip from the charts, while annualized 3rd party games would sell well for months on end. It's been very encouraging to me in the last few years to see first party games like TLOU Remastered, Spiderman, God of War, and Horizon continue showing up on charts well outside of their launch windows.
Spider-Man beating CoD in sales in the US... Never been more proud to be an American 🇺🇸 😂
