USA Charts: Immediate Triumph for Elden Ring, Successful Back for Aloy
The revenue of the video game market in the United States reached $ 4.38 billion in February 2022, which represents a 6% decrease compared to February 2021. This is the 4th consecutive month of Decline for the industry, and it despite some smashing outings. The fault above all things for console sales, which strongly suffer from the lack of availability, to the point that the revenues of sales of consoles ($ 295 million) are down 27% compared to February 2021.
Let’s start by evoking the subject of the consoles, with a switch that has regained its first place (in volume and in value) in front of the Xbox Series. At the top of the sales in January, the PlayStation 5 saw its stocks sink last month and is last of the class. Problem for Sony Interactive Entertainment and the many players still left behind, it appears that the PS5 was also the least available console (and therefore the least sold) in other regions such as the United Kingdom and Spain, the month last.
It was not the time to scroll through the beautiful skewer of outings that we offered this month of February. Perhaps you heard about our glorious Elden Ring Savior? We will make simple: the only other game that made a better launch than the title of fromSoftware in the last 12 months is Call of Duty: Vanguard. In just two days (25 and 26 February), Elden Ring also sold more than any other game in 2022. A success of a sideline for the last descendant of the souls line, which captures here a very wide audience without making any concession in terms of accessibility.
If you really had to look for a small downtown for Bandai Namco, it would be in the ranking of PlayStation sales, where Elden Ring must be satisfied with a second sacrilegious place. And for good reason, last month also saw the release of a very awaited sequence in the person of Horizon Forbidden West. With its resplendent open world, its captivating history and spectacular battles, Aloy’s new adventures meet expectations by setting the new record boot of the PS5. Up to the launch of God of War Ragnarok?
If Elden Ring has completed a historic launch on Steam, do not forget Total War: Warhammer III who slips into the top 5 thanks to its very good sales on the valve platform, while being available in the Game Pass subscription, Furthermore. By the way, Dying Light 2: Stay Human also confirms its very good launch, especially as download sales of Techland game are not included in this ranking (same for Nintendo and Take-Two games).
At the sheam “They are already gone”, we will have a thought for Rainbow Six extraction and battlefield 2042. The big Xbox Game Studios cartridges that are Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 have also left the top 20 of the month, even if the Game subscription Pass is here to provide them with a base of players and that the multiplayer of the first named is available for free.
Ranking of the month of February 2022 in the United States
Including downloads, this ranking is calculated based on turnover and not the number of copies sold. As a reminder, the Nintendo, Take-Two Interactive, Bethesda and Techland games are penalized by the fact that these publishers do not share their sales for download with the NDP. Finally, the downloads on subscriptions like the Xbox Game Pass obviously do not have as sales, as well as the Free-to-Play are not concerned here.
