USA charts: Mind-blowing Elden Ring, the PS5 bounces back in June – News

  • Also Read | The results of the previous month

A salient fact immediately emerges in the information of this month of June. Beyond the fact that no one was able to unseat it, Elden Ring didn’t just stay the best-selling game around. Based on its revenue, FromSoftware’s action-RPG is now among the 10 biggest-selling games in US video game history across all eras and platforms, helping it stand out. sit at the same table as the biggest Call of Duty and other Rockstar monsters. An improbable but very real statistic, which continues to make Elden Ring the undeniable phenomenon of this year 2022.

Which shouldn’t prevent us from mentioning the few new features of the month, starting with Mario Strikers: Battle League Football which takes a place on the podium, while Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is content with the bottom of the table.

In the absence of major releases, we can observe some interesting returns, starting with that of Overwatch, which was however 95th the previous month and which we had not seen in this table since October 2019. Blizzard’s game will have without no doubt benefited from the enthusiasm generated by the Overwatch 2 beta.

Another very nice return, that of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, which is embedded in the top 10 while the action-RPG from Square Enix was 159th in the ranking of the previous month. A resounding return propelled by the announcements surrounding the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy 7 but undoubtedly more particularly by its release on Steam.

No need to look far either for the return of Monster Hunter Rise, which benefits from the launch of the Sunbreak expansion and jumps from 30th to 13th place in the rankings. Ranked 56th last month, Demon Slayer: The Hinokami Chronicles is also getting a second wind with its Switch release. We have less hope of being able to say the same about Evil Dead: The Game, a real shooting star that only lasted a month in the top 20.

Despite the big month of PlayStation 5 (we talk about consoles a little further down) Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7 are no longer in the top 20, unlike MLB The Show 22. Still in line with console stocks , Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on the other hand repoints the tip of his nose (28th the previous month). PlayStation Studios games also make up half of the platform’s top 10.

If the situation remains frustrating on the console front, the PS5 has resumed colors to allow the manufacturer to end its fiscal quarter on a good note. Thanks to significantly improving stocks, the PS5 is the console that generated the largest turnover in June but also since the beginning of the year. Without selling a larger volume of consoles than the Switch, which remains in the lead in the number of units sold, whether in June or throughout the year.

In summary :

Ranking of consoles by volume since January 2022: 1) Switch 2) Xbox Series 3) PS5
Ranking consoles by value since January 2022: 1) PS5 2) Xbox Series 3) Switch
