According to a report from Famitsu, PS4 and PS5 sales of Elden Ring in Japan have topped 278,507 units. It secured both first and second place for most sales for the week of February 12-27, 2022. [Thanks, Famitsu and Nibel!]
However, FromSoftware has yet to release a statement sharing total sales for the game worldwide. Additionally, this report only accounts for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 copies. It does not include sales of Elden Ring on other platforms.
While highly anticipated, Elden Ring did not arrive without its fair share of bugs
Bandai Namco rolled out several patches, which resolved some issues for users. Patch 1.02.2 included a change to save progression on the PlayStation 5. This has made it so Elden Ring will keep someone’s progress even when the game is not properly terminated. This move was made to potentially resolve an issue in which users would lose data to crashes that would happen mid-game. Crashes would include the PlayStation 5 console turning itself off.
Patch 1.0.2 was rolled out ahead of the official release of the game. This patch was meant to solve issues regarding frame drops and certain NPC events.
Elden Ring is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. You can read our review of the PC version, which includes PlayStation 5 impressions.
