Hogwarts Legacy is already 2023's best-selling PS5 game

Hogwarts Legacy is already 2023's best-selling PS5 game

Hogwarts Legacy is currently number one on Amazon's PS5 game charts, a month before its initial release.

Let’s face it, 2022 was an excellent year for games - when you consider all the huge titles that released throughout the year, 2023 has its work cut out to top it.

Just to put things into perspective, let’s not forget that Elden Ring, Horizon Forbidden West and God of War Ragnarök all blessed us last year (not to mention Stray, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Kirby and the Forgotten Land). However, 2023 is set to be the year of Starfield, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and, at long last, Hogwarts Legacy, which is currently the year’s best-selling PS5 game (thanks, ComicBook).

Take a look around Hogwarts Legacy's house common rooms in the tour below.

At the time of writing, both in the UK and US, Hogwarts Legacy is number one on Amazon’s list of best-selling PS5 games - with just over a month to go until release on new-gen consoles and PC, fans are clearly rushing to get their preorders in. The game ranks a little lower on the list of best-selling Xbox Series X/S games - it’s currently behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Forza Horizon 5 in the US. Perhaps PlayStation’s exclusive Haunted Hogsmeade Shop quest has managed to pull in a few extra preorders?

Meanwhile, the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game rank significantly lower on their respective best-selling lists, but that’s no surprise - it was recently announced that the previous-gen versions of the game will be facing an additional delay, and are now set to release on 4 April (25 July on Switch). There’s definitely no rush to preorder those just yet.

Whether Hogwarts Legacy actually manages to keep the title of best-selling PS5 game by the end of the year is another matter - while it was nominated for Most Anticipated Game at The Game Awards last month, so were Resident Evil 4 and Final Fantasy XVI, so one of those might end up taking the glory.
