Marvel's Spider-Man 2 PS5

Sony certainly won't mind, but its continued dominance over the USA's gaming sales data makes us sound like a broken record: the PS5 was the best-selling console in the country across both units purchased and dollar sales for yet another month. With the release of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 boosting it, the system surpassed both the Nintendo Switch and the Xbox Series X|S. Speaking of the web-slingers, the PS5 exclusive was the region's best-selling game for October 2023.

One of a number of new entries in the top 20 (gathered by Circana, formally NPD), Peter Parker and Miles Morales beat out competition from Super Mario Bros. Wonder and Assassin's Creed Mirage to top the list. Other newer titles include UFC 5 in seventh place, Sonic Superstars in ninth, and the Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection taking 12th. Marvel's Spider-Man 2 is already fourth in the list of the best-selling games of 2023 after less than one month on the market.

More noteworthy information includes how PS Plus has helped make The Callisto Protocol one of the most-played PS5, PS4 games of the month, while Roblox is already very popular on Sony's platforms.
