Elden Ring is an absolute hit, but if you want to know a bit more about the sales breakdown, the GS Institute has published a very interesting report.
As reported by the very serious GamesIndustry, Elden Ring is a hit in Europe. And as surprising as it may seem, it is the PC which represents the majority of sales with 44% of the total. A crazy figure which can be explained in particular by the very good representation of the PC in Germany and England in particular as well as the countries of the North.
PC leads for Elden Ring, followed by PS5
If the PC represents 44% of Elden Ring sales, the PS5 is right behind with 27% of sales. Then we can find the Xbox Series (16% of sales) then the PS4 with 16% of sales. Results seem quite consistent. Further proof that the PC is becoming more and more fundamental in the video game market.
Under these conditions, we understand better why Sony wants to release its excluded PCs. Business is business. And the money unfortunately does not fall from the sky.
The record game
We can also learn that this is the biggest new IP in Europe since The Division in 2016 and the best launch since Call of Duty Vanguard. It’s a safe bet that we’ll be hearing about Elden Ring for a long time to come.
If Elden Ring interests you and you are not convinced, we advise you to read the TEST by our good Joniwan. He added a pinch of love in it, especially for YOU.
