PlayStation Store Top Sellers: March 2014

Justin Massongill's Avatar Posted by Social Media Manager, SIEA

inFAMOUS Second Son and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes rocked the PlayStation Store PS4 charts in March… you could have probably guessed that, though. But did you know South Park: The Stick of Truth grabbed the #2 spot on the PS3 list, beaten only by the mighty Minecraft? It even triumphed over my beloved Dark Souls II!

Square Enix’s HD remaster of Final Fantasy X and X2 Jecht shot (that pun is a real stretch, sorry) to the top of the PS Vita charts, and the Classics list looks… well, pretty much as you’d expect it to.

Worth noting: Fez landed in the PS Store top sellers on all three platforms it launched on last month!

Head over to the EU PlayStation.Blog to see how these games fared over there. Any guesses for next month?

Hey, how bout dropping the price of games in Canada?
70$ is too much, 65$ would be better.
At least until the dollar evens out. That won’t take too long with the elections over in Qc.

Considering the number of good AAA titles on the PSVita right now I am not surprised to see it as number 1 right now.

Out of curiosity, how do you count the cross-buy titles? For games like Fez and Steamworld Dig, do you just count the total number of purchases across all platforms, or is it specific to each console? Like does it get counted as a Vita title if the purchase was made on the Vita and a PS4 purchase if it was made on the PS4? Or do you just lump them together and say it sold X number of units total and then figure out where that number sits for each platform?

Just wondering. Thanks.

FFX HD GOTY! I’m only half joking, it really is THAT awesome! I did get the Jecht shot, but I still can’t win at blitzball. I have given up on ever getting Wakka’s or Tidus’ celestial weapons.

I loved SteamWorld Dig on the 3DS. I can’t decide if I want to pick it up again on the PS4 or get Super Motherload instead…

@Sid Shuman Thank you :)

I guess you guys are never going to get rid of PS Plus Vita games Uncharted, Wipeout, and Gravity Rush are you? I am so tired of seeing these games as free. Can’t you guys pick 3 more? Rotate them out? Something?
PLEASE GET THESE GAMES OFF PS PLUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kind of depressing a 40 dollar demo came second place.

Awesome I got NFS:MW, Fez, and Steamworld for Vita. All good games!!

Why are ps4 games in Canada 69.99? Xbox are still 59, talk about a slap in the face to fans here.

Welmosca said:

Guess that NFS sale was worth it,all them good NFS games are in the PS3 list except Rivals…well I helped with The Run,it was too cheap to pass out and the only NFS that I didn’t owned already.Also good to see KZ Mercenary still making into the top 10.BTW Second Son totally deserved that 1st spot.

Now I can’t believe people paid $30 and $20 for a demo….ha hope all you guys who did this…have the knowledge that supporting **** like this will just encourage those devs to do it again and again and over again until it becomes “normal” to us consumers.

@ Grayfox2k8: It was only a $30 demo. They dropped the price after people complained about it, haha. Not that it’s any better. It’s sad though, how many people I’ve seen on my friend’s list that are playing it…

I helped Steamworld Dig make it to #8 on PS4, but that was it for me. Everything else I bought physically in March.

Infamous deserves that top spot, best game on the PS4 right now.

I’d say MLB 14 the show and Persona 4 are sure fire picks for next months list. Most of my PS4 games I’m buying at retail for right now, I’m afraid of using up my HD

Glad to see Hatsune Miku Project Diva f in the top 3 on the vita list! Now tell me, did I call it, or did I call it?

3 of the 5 top sellers for PSP are GTA games. Why hasn’t a GTA game been released on the Vita? It would sell games and PS Vita Units. Please convince Rockstar (2K) to consider a GTA for Vita.

MGSV: Ground Zeroes is really high on the list, I guess people are okay with buying overpriced demos. That’s alarming, I really hope they don’t start taking this approach with other franchises. I would hate to see a “prologue” to Assassin’s Creed or something.

The very idea makes me shudder in disgust.

dkornyukhov said:

Infamous and Ground Zeroes sales are a total joke. That’s just shows that people are so desperate to play something, that they are ready to buy and praise a boring, mediocre game with repetitive gameplay, clichéd storyline and characters and dead open world with questionable graphics, as well as an unpolished, overpriced demo with outdated mechanics and so-called “open-world gameplay” that we all saw somewhere else. And this is coming from a PS4 owner.
As for the May sales the safest bet is that Watch Dogs with Wolfenstein will be on the top of that list.

Welmosca said:

@ 28 dkornyukhov – All that you said is stupidity if it was about Second Son…but questionable graphics?…this I really hope it ain’t about Second Son.

TheBeejAbides said:

I completed Infamous twice. I collected all of the trophies but i did not receive the Silver trophy when i completed it on Expert. So i can not get a platinum! I am uber pissed off. I know someone else who reported the same trophy bug. PLEASE FIX THIS AND AWARD US OUR PLATINUM TROPHIES . For a game that otherwise works perfectly, this sticks out as a big sore thumb.

dkornyukhov said:

@ 29 Welmosca Yes, I’m talking about Second Son. There are a lot of inconsistencies in the game. On one hand we have amazingly detailed main characters with great animations and special effects. And on the other hand we have the city. The city doesn’t have the same amount of detail, you can’t tell one district from another, you always have a feeling that many buildings were simply cloned, people in the streets look ugly, the viewing range is weird, I always see objects and textures popping up in the distance as I run. The textures of buildings and trees doesn’t look really good. The water looks terrible as well. All of those things leave you wondering: “Why the hell the open world game has such unattractive world where you don’t want to stay?”
