COVID-19 changed habits.
This ranking basically corresponded to 63% of the full games sold on PlayStation in 2020.
2021 that number will probably go higher so you can say at least 2/3 of the games sold on PS consoles are digital... maybe PS5 is even at 3/4.

It is basically the most relevant sales ranking nowdays and where the actual PS4 and PS5 games sales are coming.

The Japan top seller of March 2021.
The first column is Japan and the second is US/Canada (I put the translate to these two to make it clear).

Demon's is killing in Japan since launch... it was the TOP 2020 seller (1st in Nov and Dec) and 1st in Feb and Mar... it was 2nd in Jan.

It's frankly quite odd that Demon's Souls isn't on top 5. It's still PS5's only exclusive and IMO a must have game.

How does everyone that has a ps4 not own GTA5 by now? Holy shit.
I've heard speculation that a lot of the evergreen sales of GTA5 are coming from people rolling new accounts after having been banned for cheating in GTA Online, or because it's the most efficient way to get shark cards or something.

Because that franchise (along with Bloodborne) aren't games the mainstream audience cares about. On forums, you'll probably get more people talking about those games, but the avg gamer will stick with the known franchises and hits.

Nice to see Disco Elysium in the charts. WRC 9 probably got a huge sales bump thanks to being featured in the sale (+1 copy from me :)), because afaik it sold very poor on launch.

I originally read "It Takes Two" as "IT Part Two", and wondered why I'd not seen anyone mention there had been a video game adaption of Stephen King's novel ...

Well I’m one of these :D

Last GTA for me was on PS2 Vice City... I find these games too unfocused... I don’t have a goal and the fun of driving thought the city and shooting things last few minutes.

But understand the appeal and quality of the new GTAs.

Dead by Daylight being the 3rd best selling PS5 game in Japan is weird. As a big DBD fan I'm always surprised at how international and diverse the playerbase is for an indie game largely based on US slasher films is.

Now if DBD manages to snag a Resident Evil crossover, oh boy... that would really drive up its East Asian popularity.

I would think that most PS5 owners are "hardcore" gamers 🤔
Bloodborne was the only From game I had played prior Demon's Souls Remake, but it looked so stunning so I had to buy it on PS5 launch.
