PS5: seven best-selling Xbox Game Studios games

Currently the ranking of the best-selling games on PS5 shows a truly strange situation: seven of the top 25 come from Xbox Game Studios.

Apparently Xbox’s strategy of launching some of its exclusives on PS5 is working, given that currently seven of the top twenty-five positions in the US ranking of best-selling games are occupied by Xbox Game Studios .

Some have actually been on the Sony console for years , so the recent opening by the Redmond house has little to do with it. Let’s talk for example about Call of Duty and Minecraft. However, others have been announced in recent weeks. We’re talking specifically about Grounded and Sea of ​​Thieves .

Grounded was released earlier this week, while Sea of ​​Thieves is still pre-order and will arrive on April 30th.

In addition to the titles already mentioned, Overwatch 2 is also present in the ranking, thanks to the launch of the tenth season which gave it some oxygen back, finding a lot of support. The two missing games are Fallout 4 and Fallout 76, evidently driven by the Prime Video TV series. It’s fair to point out that both were launched when Bethesda was not from Microsoft.

In short, for the most part these are games that have already been present in the PlayStation catalog for years. Except that seeing them all together has a certain effect and also makes us understand how important Xbox currently is for PlayStation players. For the sake of comparison, there are currently only five PlayStation exclusive titles in the top 25, three of which are not developed by PlayStation Studios: Rise of the Ronin , Stellar Blade and Helldivers 2 . The other two are MLB The Show 24 and Destiny 2, both multiplatform.
