versions of Elden Ring from PS5, PS4 sold most copies of the game in the USA, but not by a wide margin, according to NPD’s Mat Piscatella.
FromSoftware had to release its long-awaited game to finally unseat Call of Duty as the best-selling game in the country, a record that no other game has broken in a long time.
This feat is particularly impressive because we are talking about sales over the last year, and Elden Ring had only been on the market for two months at the time of the NPD report, while Vanguard launched in November 2021.
Why the PS4 versions of Elden Ring sold more in the US
Xbox Series X/S is gaining traction in the US, but PS5 is still in the lead, and considering PS4’s massive install base vs. Xbox One, it is understandable why Elden Ring sold more copies on the platforms of PlayStation.
Besides, Sony has a long history with FromSoftware, so PlayStation users have an affinity for the studio’s games.
Since NPD doesn’t share sales breakdowns, we don’t know how many copies of Elden Ring were sold on PS5 and PS4 compared to Xbox Series X/S and PC.
Given the success of Elden Ring, we’ll be surprised if DLC/expansions aren’t in the works yet.
FromSoftware’s parent company, Kadokawa, hinted at the upcoming DLC in its latest financial report, but declined to comment further.
In other news, the next PlayStation event is rumored to be scheduled for the first week of June, and Sony has signed a licensing and distribution deal with the rumored PlayStation developer. silenthill, Bloomer Team.
