PSN Top Sellers: September 2011 Edition

Morgan Haro's Avatar Posted by Community Manager, PlayStation Digital Platforms

Welcome to the inaugural edition of a new monthly post that will reveal, for the first time, the top-selling PlayStation Network games each month. We hope you find this information valuable, and that it gives you some new perspective on popular PSN games that you may have missed. If you’re looking for the most-downloaded movies and TV shows on the PlayStation Video Store, you can find that information here.

Top 20 PSN Games of The Month
Clearly the April 2011 release of Mortal Kombat left PS3 owners wanting more, as the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection earned the top slot in September. Newcomers Resident Evil 4 HD, From Dust, Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, Burnout Crash! and Renegade Ops also made strong showings this month. The original PSone Resident Evil games also proved quite popular — and no, this list does not include PlayStation Plus members who downloaded the games for free.

Drop your thoughts in the comments below and tell us your favorite title from the list, or even your favorite October titles that didn’t make the list.

1.  Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection: This eagerly awaited collection of hit arcade fighters Mortal Kombat, MKII, and MK3 soars to the top of the September PSN sales chart. Finish him!
2. Resident Evil 4
3. From Dust
4. Angry Birds
5. Resident Evil 2
6. Resident Evil 3: Nemesis
7. Castlevania: Harmony of Despair



8. Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition: This fighting classic and PSN PLAY inductee cracked the top ten in its second month of availability. Check out PlayStation Store for a host of new DLC options, too.
9. Limbo



10. Final Fantasy VII:
This PSone RPG classic shows some remarkable staying power, hanging in the top 10 despite launching on the PlayStation Store more than two years ago. No Phoenix Down needed here!
11. Resident Evil Director’s Cut
12. Parasite Eve II
13. Burnout Crash!
14. Elemental Monster Online Card Game
15. Breath of Fire IV


16. Saints Row 2:
At 7 GB, this open-world crime epic is the largest game on this month’s download list. And at $20, it makes a fine chance to catch up before November’s Saints Row The Third.
17. Renegade Ops
18. Call of Duty Classic
19. Castle Crashers
20. Battlefield 1943

Also, sorry for double posting, but I would also love to see:
Shadow of the Collosus/Ico HD collection (Even wal-mart doesn’t have it?)
MGS HD Collection this fall, I’ve heard rumors that it will be there? Although, I’d love to believe them, I don’t want to get all worked up and not pre-order one…
and MGS Virtual Missions for PS1

I rather enjoyed Vandal Hearts. It was basically what FFT was copying :P. Parasite Eve was good, and I hear PE2 is also good.

Zoidzerg said:

October 7th, 1:12 pm


It occurs to me that Vandal Hearts is not available on PSN I believe. They have a new title on PSN but I have no idea if it is any good.

I’ll respond by saying you forgot to release the Caps lock button.

Maybe the massive sales will let Square Enix know we want a remake. Yourichi Wada said he’d keep the Compiliation project open until the 20th anniversary and knowing SE they’ll need 6 years to bring FFVII to the PS4 in 2017!

Good list, but I expect a lot of changes next month. This last PS store update was amazing. I bet NBA jam and Chrono Trigger go 1.2.

I’m really glad to see that From Dust and Limbo did really well. They’re awesome games.

I’m not a huge fan of Mortal Kombat, but the Kollection is proof-positive that a great arcade emulation experience can yield big sales. (Unlike, say, all the Sega Genesis emulator dumps we’ve been getting instead of their superior arcade versions.) I have my fingers crossed for a Panzer Dragoon HD Collection :)

After MK9s release, a lot of fans were anticipating the MK ‘Kollection’, but the online sucks. When is the patch coming? It’s been over a month, and it still lags like crazy on PSN & XBL.

LordRazen38 said:

October 7th, 5:11 pm

Why is not Dark Souls one of this? And I am amazed that Final Fantasy VII is on the those!

rabidninjamonky said:

October 7th, 5:24 pm

@lord razen These are just downloadable games, Dark Souls is not downloadable. Great game though.

[DELETED] . Give PS3s the option to play PS2 disks. We ALL know you can easily do it. Let’s see it. [DELETED] You know if you rip off your customers by making them buy something they already have just because you’re being childish about it, you lose them.. I used to think better of this company, but after seeing what you have done in the past couple months to your customers, while hoping we were stupid enough to not know about it, just proves you’re as twisted as any other company. [DELETED]

I would have loved to see some actual numbers going with this just to see how many people are downloading. I know that is a type of number Sony doesn’t like to talk about, but I’m sure there are more than a few that would also like to see that instead of just a list.

I have to believe that if Final Fantasy 7 is still selling this well after 2 years, they will make an HD version. Maybe they just want to add some content like they said they might for FF10? I don’t know.
