Among Us ruled supreme during PS Store’s key Christmas month, with the social sensation dominating both the PlayStation 5 and PS4 sales charts in December. The title did launch at an attractive price point of just £3.29/$3.99, so was in “impulse buy” territory – although it’s worth remembering that the release is available for free on smartphones.
In the US, the PS5 version of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales enjoyed a Christmas bump, while FIFA 22 finished as runner-up in Europe. Online sensation Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach performed well on both sides of the pond, while Kena: Bridge of Spirits enjoyed a significant boost ahead of the holidays.
On the PS4, evergreens like Grand Theft Auto V continued to sell well worldwide, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt enjoyed a slight bump in the aftermath of the television show’s second season – particularly in Europe. PSVR continues to be dominated by the trilogy of Beat Saber, Job Simulator, and SUPERHOT VR, and Fortnite ruled supreme on the free-to-play front.
