Here we go: it’s the first month of PSN top sellers to include PlayStation 4. We’ve got two separate PS4 charts this month: one that includes the PS3 to PS4 digital upgrade program, and one that doesn’t. The games included in that program did very well either way, of course.
Just think — this time next month, we’ll be looking at the top sellers on PS4!
Grand Theft Auto V takes the top spot on the final PS3 list of this generation, followed by Battlefield 4, The Wolf Among Us, and NBA 2K14. The Walking Dead and Killzone: Mercenary rocked the PS Vita charts (with a respectable showing from a personal favorite, Persona 4 Golden), and Fatal Frame and its sequel sit at the top of the Classics chart.
I hope you’re ready to get hit right in the feels, because ICO joins the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection tomorrow. The classic title has been an industry favorite ever since its release, so if you haven’t had a chance to play it, you can finally learn what all the fuss was about.
Eight new pre-order titles are now available on the PlayStation Store this week. Additionally, if you pre-ordered Diablo III, now’s the time to start downloading. Also, check out Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, Rayman Legends and Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate. With a host of other games on the PlayStation Store this week, including Cross-Buy title, Kickbeat, there’s sure to be something for you to enjoy.
Don’t be alarmed — no, it’s not Monday. Although PlayStation Plus updates typically kick off the week, we’re trying something new by pulling back the curtain on our Instant Game Collection updates a little early.
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn hits the PlayStation Store this week alongside Lost Planet 3, Hatsune Miku Project Diva F and Killer is Dead. It’s week two of the PS Vita Summer Select Sale and you can pick up the highly anticipated Spelunky, which is Cross-Buy and Cross-Play for both PS Vita and PS3, and you get a discount if you’re a PS Plus member.
Naughty Dog’s hugely successful title The Last of Us continues to succeed on PSN, but it didn’t quite take the top slot this time. Thanks to the Summer Blast sale, the PlayStation classic Shadow of the Colossus climbed the charts to become the best-selling game in July.
