It may not be the best-selling console in the United States, but Sony’s PlayStation 5 is likely the most sought-after. More than a year after the PS5’s launch, the console still remains in short supply. You can’t just walk into your local Walmart or Best Buy expecting to see one on the shelves — the consoles are only available at stores in short, oft-unannounced restock bursts.
The following are the 10 best selling games for the PlayStation 5 on Amazon right now. Can’t get your hands on a PlayStation 5? Good news: Many of these titles are available on Sony PlayStation 4, and come with the option to later upgrade the title to the PS5.
Part of the issue, of course, was the global semiconductor shortage. But another huge part of the equation is high demand. There are plenty of great, compelling titles to play on the Sony PlayStation 5, with more on the way very soon. And there are a number of best selling PS4 titles that are now available on PS5, enhanced with improved graphics, haptic feedback, faster load times and more.
