Another month, another record broken for the PS5, which is really beginning to steamroll now. According to Circana (previously NPD) data, Sony’s new-gen system was the best-selling console in the United States across both units and dollar sales metrics in June 2023. In fact, consumer spending on PlayStation hardware reached its highest June total in 15 years, while unit sales were at their highest since June 2010. In other words: the console is cooking.

It’s no surprise looking at the best-selling software either: Diablo 4, Final Fantasy 16, and Street Fighter 6 took the top three spots – three new releases all popular on the PS5. Diablo 4 is already the third best-selling game of the year, while Final Fantasy 16 is the ninth – not bad considering the latter is only available on a single system. Street Fighter 6, meanwhile, doubled the launch month sales of Street Fighter 5.

We’ve included the full list of best-sellers below. With Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 right around the corner and rumours of a revised PS5 hardware model on the way, it looks like the second half of the year is going to be pretty much unstoppable for PlayStation.
