PS5 Generated Highest Dollar Sales in the U.S. in First Half of 2022

NPD Group’s Mat Piscatella has revealed that PS5 sales generated the highest dollar revenue at U.S. retail not only in June 2022 but also in the first half of the year. Meanwhile, Nintendo Switch led both periods in terms of unit sales. This is quite a feat for Sony considering the PS5 has suffered more from shortages than any other console, leaving it behind both Switch and Xbox Series X/S on numerous occasions in not only the U.S. but also in Japan and Europe.

PS5 sales in the U.S. are complemented by Horizon Forbidden West

Horizon Forbidden West‘s sales might have been dwarfed by FromSoftware’s highly-anticipated multiplatform game, Elden Ring, but the game still sold well enough to rank in 2022’s top five best-selling games in the U.S. thus far, beating the likes of multiplatform juggernauts like Call of Duty. The no. 1 spot was claimed by Elden Ring, which is now one of the U.S. market’s top ten best-selling premium games of all time in terms of dollar sales.

2022’s best-selling games in the U.S. year-to-date are as follows:

  1. Elden Ring
  2. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
  3. Pokemon Legends: Arceus
  4. Horizon Forbidden West
  5. MLB The Show 22
  6. Call of Duty: Vanguard
  7. Gran Turismo 7
  8. Kirby and the Forgotten Land
  9. Mario Kart 8
  10. Madden NFL 22
  11. Nintendo Switch Sports
  12. Minecraft
  13. FIFA 22
  14. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  15. Monster Hunter: Rise
  16. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  17. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
  18. Mario Party Superstars
  19. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
  20. Dying Light 2: Stay Human
