PS5 Topped US April 2022 In Hardware Dollar Sales, Elden Ring Continues To Perform Well

Matt Piscatella of The NPD Group has revealed on Twitter that the PS5 topped April 2022 in the US in terms of hardware dollar sales, while the Nintendo Switch reached a new milestone and surpassed the PS4 in life-to-date sales.

According to Piscatella, video game hardware dollar sales were up 16% year-on-year, reaching $343 million, primarily due to increase supply for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. However, hardware spending fell to $1.5 billion, representing a drop of 9% year-on-year.

In terms of software, LEGO: Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga was the best-selling game of April 2022, and is also the second best-selling game of the year so far.

Meanwhile, Elden Ring came in second place last month, and still remains the best-selling game of the year to date; it’s also eclipsed Call of Duty: Vanguard as the biggest-selling premium game of the 12-month period ended April 2022.
