PS5 sales were down 23% compared to April, with May being the first time this year that sales of Sony’s console fell below what they were during the same period in 2022.
Xbox Series X/S sales declined 10% month-over-month and were also down year-over-year.
Year to date console sales are up 16.6%, with PS5 sales up 81%, Switch sales down 8% and Xbox Series X/S sales down 19%.
On the software front, Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom was May’s No.1 game based on physical sales alone (Nintendo is currently the only major games company that doesn’t share digital sales data).
Tears of the Kingdom is already the UK’s third best-selling boxed Zelda game of all time, trailing only 2017’s Breath of the Wild and 2006’s Twilight Princess.
