May 2024 USA Sales: Sucker Punch Classic Ghost of Tsushima Jumps 70 Places to Top Charts 1

It may be an indictment of a particularly slow period for big new releases, but it’s still no less impressive to see Ghost of Tsushima top the USA sales charts for the period spanning 5th May through 1st June. The legendary Sucker Punch title jumped 70 places month-over-month on the back of the game’s PC release, proving Sony’s porting strategy is sound.

Sales were down three per cent year-over-year, largely due to unfavourable comparisons with The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom in 2023. Still, PlayStation enjoyed a steady month, with Helldivers 2 continuing to perform in fourth position, and MLB The Show 24 proving yet again that it’s the dark horse of Sony’s first-party selection in fifth place.

Stellar Blade took an unsurprising tumble from first place down to tenth position, but it’s still a respectable result for the Shift Up release in its second month. Elsewhere, Sea of Thieves continued to float following its hugely successful PS5 release, while Rise of the Ronin once again showed it’s something of a dark horse, enjoying yet another month in the charts.

As has become consistent for quite some time now, PS5 was the best-selling console, ranked both by units and revenue accrued. We’ve included the relevant rankings for various software sales categories below.
