Grand Theft Auto V topped the PS3 charts, with Diablo III securing the runner-up spot. FIFA 14 made an impressive entrance, and Madden NFL 25 is holding steady at #4.
Killzone: Mercenary ruled the PS Vita charts, followed by the gorgeous Rayman Legends and the nerve-wracking Spelunky. Pixelated survival horror adventure Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut had a strong first month, showing up in the #5 spot.
Scrooge McDuck pogoed to the top of the PS3 charts in WayForward’s HD remaster of Capcom’s classic DuckTales. We saw strong debuts from Payday 2, Madden NFL 25, and Saints Row IV as well. Dragon’s Crown took over the PS Vita charts last month, but Rayman Origins almost took it out (leading into this month’s release of its sequel, Rayman Legends). Spelunky and The Walking Dead both launched last month and earned their spots in the top 10, as well.
The Last of Us, Naughty Dog’s highly anticipated post-apocalyptic title, lived up to expectations, outselling all other digital titles in June. Other notable PS3 entries include Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider and The Walking Dead from Telltale Games. Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Injustice: Gods Among Us prove to be the kings of downloadable content this month, and Hotline Miami proves that indie devs are loved by PlayStation gamers.
Aaaaand we’re back with the top sellers from May 2013! Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon claimed its spot at the top of the PS3 chart (deservedly so, if I have anything to say about it), Call of Juarez: Gunslinger made a mighty strong debut, and Journey keeps drifting around the top ten.
DrinkBox Studios’ action-platformer Guacamelee! fought its way up the charts to #1 on both the PS3 and PS Vita charts. Hot titles from last month, Tomb Raider and Terraria, follow up in second and third place, respectively, while Telltale’s award-winning The Walking Dead grabs a spot in the top 10.
Newcomers to the PlayStation lists include Terraria, an endearing, yet challenging side-scroller where you craft, dig and explore, the highly anticipated BioShock Infinite, and the bad-ass PS Vita title Nun Attack. Speaking of Vita games, fans of the JRPG series Atelier will be excited to learn that recently released Atelier Totori Plus: The Adventurer of Arland battled all the way to the top of its list.
February is over, and spring is well on its way. Journey had a reprise last month after some spectacular games usurping the #1 spot in January. Smack in the middle of basketball season, NBA 2K13 slides in at #2, and anime fans have stepped forward in support of the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s Decade Duels Plus card trading game.
2013 is already onto a great start. Exploring the unknown and painting the world with depth via black paint, The Unfinished Swan takes the lead for the top PS3 & PSN sellers for January. This highly unusual and unforgettable game is both absorbing, and gorgeous in its subtlety.
Other titles of note include Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Far Cry 3, DmC Devil May Cry — all spectacular examples of their individual genres. Zooming into hearts and top 10 in a couple of the lists is LittleBigPlanet Karting — a whimsical take on the standard kart game, completely full of fun that only Sackboy and friends can provide.
