Cultural differences seem to impact game sales as FIFA 23 is the top-selling game in the EU, where football is the number one sport in the region. FIFA 22 also made the charts, while both NBA 2K23 and NBA 2K22 are on US/Canada charts.

The fastest-selling PlayStation exclusive game, God of War Ragnarök found itself in the Top 3, the second and third most downloaded games of the year. The critically acclaimed game was a part of PlayStation 5 bundle sales, and most of the sales were boxed.
