With the release of the PlayStation 5, there was plenty of hype around the console exclusive titles. Upon launch of the PS5, Demon’s Souls and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales became clear favorites and had generated peaks of 290K and 352K, respectively. Combined, the two games reached over 15M hours watched within the first week of PS5’s lifecycle. Although Demon’s Soul and the latest Spider-Man game were the most popular, Astro’s Playroom and Bugsnax produced a decent amount of viewership as well – totaling over 1M hours watched.
