After just one month on the market, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is already among the six best-selling LEGO titles of all time in the US after selling more copies than any other game in the country for the month of April 2022. It also achieved the "highest launch month dollar sales for any LEGO title in history", according to NPD executive director Mat Piscatella. Elden Ring fell to second place in the sales charts to make way for the game, but it's still the best-selling game of the year so far.

The PlayStation 5 was also top of the leaderboard for hardware dollar sales in April 2022, narrowly beating out competition from the Nintendo Switch and Xbox Series X|S. It marks a significant jump in console sales as the machine was in last place in March 2022's financial results. Compared to this time last year, overall hardware sales are up by 16 per cent thanks to improved stock availability.

On PS5 and PS4, MLB The Show 22, Horizon Forbidden West, and Gran Turismo 7 were all among the top five best-selling games on Sony systems for the month. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales also demonstrates its legs by remaining in the overall top 10.

A sign that people are still heavily using their PS4 is the console's DualShock 4 controller being named April 2022's best-selling accessory.
