Hail to the king, baby.

Well hello, mister fancy pants. Evil Dead: The Game was the most-downloaded game in last month’s US/Canada PS5 chart, with NBA 2K22 leading the EU list. Other high performers for the month include Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Elden Ring, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (gotta get ready for that just-announced sequel!), MLB The Show 22, and Sniper Elite 5.

Where did your top picks for May land on the download charts? What do you think will take top honors in June? Hit the comments and let us know!

  • Are these figures “first time” downloads, or also include re-downloads from personal libraries?

    • It’s new store purchases for the month. It is sorted by copies sold just like any other sales chart

  • Have to admit it is nice for once to see multiple indie games in the top 20. You rarely see any indie games at all. Congrats to Salt and Sacrifice, Trek to Yomi, and Stanley Parable on all selling very well.

  • No wonder Horzion is getting bundled.

    • Um why? The game has consistently been in the top 20 at both retail and digitally every month since launch. It has sold very well. Let me remind you that games like Miles Morales were also bundled with PS5s all the time. You can’t buy a PS5 from Gamestop like ever without getting a game or two with it.

    • Should never drop below top 10. Look at the difference between it and elden ring,how do you justify that gap?

    • Elden Ring is cheaper for one. $60 vs $70. Elden Ring also hasn’t even been in the top 10 at retail in places like the UK yet Horizon and GT7 have consistently been in it. Horizon has even been number 1 a lot in recent weeks.

    • wat.
      Elden Ring sold 12 million times in the first 3 weeks alone. Dunno what kind of charts you got from UK (for whatever reason), but it sure as hell has been in the top 10.

    • @kexXMC Maybe learn how to read before you get all offended over your favorite game. I said Horizon has been staying in the top 10 in charts like the UK ones yet Elden Ring has been out of them for some time now. I never said it wasn’t in the top 10 at all.

  • Hi,
    I have a very simple suggestion, that I think will be beneficial for players and PlayStation : please increase the wishlist limit on PSN, from 100 items to at least 1000.
    There are many games releasing, big and small, and a wishlist is a simple feature to keep track of games you are interested in purchasing.
    I will post this comment on every blog post until it is implemented.
    Thank you for your consideration.

  • It’s worrying to see Horizon Forbidden West hanging at the tail end of the PS5 top 20 ranking, and actually out of the PS4 top 20.

    • And to think the first one sold 20 million copies, forbidden west probably didn’t even reach 5 million

    • The game is selling very well stop worrying. It’s been in the top 10 at retail consistently since launch. Being in the top 20 is still very good. Other games that we’ve heard have sold very well like Dying Light 2 aren’t even in the charts anymore yet we know they sold millions. Stop with the concern.

    • @Randinator123 The first one sold 20 million over the course of 5 years. Forbidden West has been out less than 4 months and most people are waiting to buy it with their PS5. That’s why the PS4 version of Miles Morales was rarely in the top 20 either.

  • spongequaviusiii

    We as the community come together as one. We stand strong and uphold our decision.

    We want skate 3 on the new ps plus

    Get this trending so PlayStation listens

  • Pls for future can you have horizon fobbiden west for ps4 go on sale to @playstation

  • Surely every owner of PS4 should have already own GTA5. Its ridiculous its still in the top 3.

    Are Rockstar buying them?
