Sales of Elden Ring, at least in Europe, they seem to go in one direction only. As shown by the data released by GamesIndustry, in fact, the FromSoftware house title in the Old Continent was sold for the most part on Steam: an unequivocal data, which demonstrates how PC gamers quickly became fond of Hidetaka Miyazaki.
Elden Ring has sold about 44% of its copies on PC. Next we find PlayStation 5: about 27% of copies have been sold on the latest Sony console, while on Xbox console (probably all, between old gen and current gen) we arrive at a total of 16%. Lagging behind, on the other hand, is PlayStation 4, which stands with 13% of the total copies sold by the game FromSoftware, which was also the title that has dominated the sales charts for the longest, with the exception of Germany, where he had to surrender to Pokémon Legends Arceus.
These data also reveal another detail regarding video games in Europe. Elden Ring has indeed become the biggest IP after Tom Clancy's The Division: Ubisoft's MMO in fact held the record for the best-selling unreleased game in the Old Continent. Now the hierarchy has changed and it may take several more years before we can see this special milestone passed by another title.
If the first best-selling game in Europe in February was Elden Ring, the second position is occupied instead by Horizon Forbidden West. The house title Guerrilla Games has seen 59% of its copies sold on the PlayStation 4 and this data could justify even more any cross gen titles, also given the scarcity of PS5 that can be recovered under normal conditions.
