The PlayStation 5 is now more than a year old. So 2021 was the first full year for the game console. And in that year, FIFA 22 proved to be the most popular game.
At least, if you look at the digital sales. On the PlayStation Blog, they announced what are the games that have been downloaded the most on the PlayStation 5 and the PlayStation 4.
FIFA 22 big winner on the PlayStation 5
Exact figures have not been given, so we have to make do with the list that has been given. So it shows that in Europe FIFA 22 is the most downloaded game on the PlayStation 5. It is followed by Call of Duty: Vanguard. FIFA 21 also proved to be still popular and is in the third spot. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is in spot four and Battlefield 2042 is still the fifth game despite all the problems. Among Us is also notable with its sixth spot. That game was only released in December, so it received massive influxes.
