2021 started off with a bang, but on the side of publishers and manufacturers, we have not quite finished taking stock of the year 2020. Proof of this is with the publication a few minutes ago of the ranking of the best games that have been sold on the PlayStation Store. It is Sony Interactive Entertainment who unveils the Top Best Sellers itself, through a big message on the PlayStation Blog. The arrival of such data is all the more interesting nowadays, especially in 2020, where digital sales have necessarily exploded following the health crisis and the many lockdowns. We learn that the ratio of games sold in dematerialized form on PS4 had reached a record 59%, instead of 45% in 2019. The COVID-19 effect of course.
Side games, no big surprise, we find the big AAA, kind of safe bet for players, who crushes everything in their path. Among the bestsellers, Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War stands out from the crowd, as does GTA 5 which continues to sell like hot cakes 7 years after its release. We note in any case some nice differences depending on whether we are on PS5 or PS4. Come on, we’ll leave you with these fairly explicit tables.
