The PlayStation 5 just hit its first birthday, and while many people still haven’t been able to obtain a console yet — myself included — the console still managed to snag an impressive amount of playtime in its first year. Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO Jim Ryan published a yearly data review, including upcoming games, total playtime across all games, and most importantly, the top ten most played games on the console during console’s first year.

“PS5 gamers have collectively played more than 4.6 billion hours of gameplay on PS5 and broadcast more than 26 million hours of content,” said Ryan.

Below is the most played games, sorted by total playtime hours:

  • Fortnite
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
  • FIFA 21
  • NBA 2K21
  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
  • Destiny 2
  • MLB The Show 21
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  • Demon’s Souls
  • NBA 2K22

Shocking absolutely nobody, Fortnite continues to floss its way across all popularity leader-boards, followed by other notable titles such as Call of Duty: Cold War and FIFA. Also making an appearance is Demon’s Souls, a game that is notoriously challenging but rewarding to play.

In addition to the list, Jim noted that PS5 inventory shortages remains a top priority for Sony to fix, stating, “we are laser-focused on doing everything in our power to ship as many units as possible.” Perhaps soon, we can all stop refreshing our Amazon carts looking for new stock.
