Last month, Ubisoft’s open world cyber-epic Watch_Dogs took the top spot on PS4, but we saw strong debuts from EA Sports UFC, Valiant Hearts and Entwined. Minecraft ruled the PS3 charts, but we saw a resurgence of some older favorites like Ni no Kuni and PlayStation All-Stars.
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!
Strider… strode to the top of the PS4 charts on PlayStation Store this month, with Thief, Lego Marvel Super Heroes, and Tomb Raider Definitive Edition nipping at its heels. Minecraft is sittin’ pretty at number one on PS3, but Castle Crashers made a valiant push to try and dethrone it, beating out even the mighty Grand Theft Auto V for the runner-up spot. The Last of Us fans snapped up Left Behind, the new single-player story chapter, vaulting it to the top spot for PS3 add-ons.
Battlefield 4 held onto the top spot on PS4, but Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition made a very impressive debut. Launch titles Need for Speed Rivals and Assassin’s Creed IV are still holding strong in the top 5, too.
Minecraft has taken over all of the PS3s, apparently, though Crysis 3, Tales of Xillia and Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon did very well too. Puppeteer rounded out the top 5 on PS3 last month.
Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 ruled PS4, both with and without counting the digital upgrade program. Minecraft blasted immediately to the top of the PS3 charts, the premiere of The Walking Dead’s second season had an especially strong debut, and Terraria and Tearaway continue to stimulate the minds of PS Vita creators.
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.
