Stellar Blade Sales

Stellar Blade is the big winner of the latest US sales report from analytical company Circana (as outlined by the ever-informative Mat Piscatella). The current PS5 exclusive topped the charts for April, having released on the 26th of the month. Admittedly, it was a pretty quiet period for new releases, but it's still an impressive console debut from South Korean developer Shift Up.

Moving down the list, Helldivers 2 is still hanging in at number 2, and we're starting to wonder just how long it'll hold a top 10 spot. Honestly, at this point, we wouldn't be surprised if it stays there for the rest of the year — which is crazy.

Fallout 4 also got a huge boost thanks to its current-gen upgrade and the Amazon TV show — all the way from 87th to 5th — while the rest of the multiplatform chart is fairly straightforward. March's heavy hitters, Dragon's Dogma 2 and Rise of the Ronin, remain highly placed in 7th and 11th respectively.

Elsewhere, the PS5 continues its dominance of the console sector, winning out both in unit and dollar sales.
