PlayStation Store: September 2015’s Top Sellers

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

Hello, and welcome to the PlayStation Store Top Sellers update for September 2015!

Destiny tops the PS4 chart (thanks, I’d wager, to the recent release of The Taken King), followed by the long-awaited Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and global fútbol phenomenon FIFA 16. The Taken King, by the way, ruled the Add-on charts for both PS4 and PS3. PS Vita owners flocked to Metal Gear Solid 3, no doubt to prepare for MGS V (good idea), and GTA San Andreas topped the Classics charts.

We’ve got some big releases happening this month — what do you think will be at the top of the charts next time we meet?

Editor’s Note: If I’ve put this thing together properly, it should look good on your desktop AND on your mobile device, thanks to our fancy new mobile redesign. What do you think?

Everyone… just get use to seeing Destiny’s name at the top of most charts :)

    Great to see Rocket League still going strong! Also, the mobile site support is excellent. Looks great!

    Destiny keeps me busy

Good to see Rocket League still doing well, now that it’s no longer free. It’s the only online game I’ve ever been half-decent at. Tried the Star Wars beta last night for 10 minutes of spawn/death/spawn/death, then fired up Rocket League instead!!

    batmanarkhamsock said:

    October 8th, 9:09 am

    Rocket League is fun and entertaining, maybe even more than call of duty. But I got back from spain on august 14 so I couldn’t get it free ):

    Fuhr31 said:

    for future reference, just go online and add it to your library. You do not need to actually download the game to claim it on PS+

    SourGrape4u said:

    October 8th, 12:02 pm

    That is funny since the beta opened up an hour ago…not last night. You must have special downloading powers? Please dont bash a game to promote another, even though rocket league is great.

    @SourGrape4u Many individuals had early access to the beta (myself included). It became public today.

You forgot(?) to mention Witcher 3: Hearts of Stone. I think it will be the best PS4 add-on for October.

I’m looking forward to getting into Destiny, but I just got Bloodborne, and I feel that it will keep me busy for a long while (especially considering that I only play around 30 mins per day). I hope that Destiny still has my interest by then, but I fear that games like Uncharted Collection, holiday sales, The Witness, and PSVR will command both my spending precedence and time once I am done with Bloodborne.

Glad to See SOMA and Until Dawn are still up there. SOMA should be higher but oh well.

The Taken King pic for this post gave me SOMA flashbacks because of the blue glow. lol. XD

    Hakumen__ said:

    October 8th, 10:33 am

    SOMA will probably get a second wind soon enough during a Halloween/Day of the Dead sale.

    skiernan said:

    October 8th, 10:51 am

    Until Dawn is amazing. It’s like they took a Choose Your Own Adventure book and made it into a horror game. One of the few PS4 exclusives this Fall, and one of the few games to use the PS4’s camera and motion controls (but don’t worry, both are optional). The camera will secretly record short videos of you getting scared during certain moments in the game!

    Also, I’m glad to see the PS4 add-ons list isn’t all Destiny and Call of Duty stuff (unlike the PS3 add-ons list).

Destiny still a killer

TwinDad said:

Interesting to see how those sales effect the charts.

Top ten has a l0ot of EA sports, that is not a bad thing with the good revisions this year.

jgr9 said:

Sure would be great to have the Crash Bandicoot games on the Vita…

woodsman133 said:

October 8th, 8:17 am

It’s great to see Mad Max crack the top 10. Absolutely loving that game so far!

Looking better than ever, Justin! Still could use a bit more whitespace between the bottom of the post and the Comments header, though :-)

Classics still sell well, how much better would they sell if they were playable on PS4?

Hint hint Sony

    Hakumen__ said:

    October 8th, 10:38 am

    Alternatively you could just buy a PS TV, which nowdays you can get for $40 or less, and be able to play PSOne Classics as well as remote play PS4 games at another screen somewhere else.

I guess MGS 5 sale does not count the people who pre order the game. Anyway this game is a must have for anyone who know MGS and their story.

Hideo Kojima is a legend……. Thank you

Can’t find the Athena not Hades Original Color Costume for Saint Seiya Soldiers’ Sould on the ps store, when are you guys going to fix that?????

CraddaPoosta said:

Looking over the entire list, there are only two indie games that landed in the top-selling games for September of 2015, out of forty titles; Heroes of Loot (which is available for free on Android, and the paid version costs $2.47), and Goat Simulator (completely free via Amazon Underground Apps).

Every last one of the rest of them are from well-known developers.

What does this tell you, Sony? How can you use this data to provide greater value to your customers? Could this data be useful in helping to form a better strategy as far as the Instant Game Collection goes?

I’ll give you a hint. We’re sick to death of indie titles. If more of your customers were as obsessed with indie games as you are, you’d know it, because we speak with our wallets.

Take the hint. I know you don’t want to actually pay for licensing and distributing games from developers we know and love, but, don’t the sales figures do all the talking?

Let October be the final month that you foist off cheap garbage on PS+ subscribers. If you won’t listen to us when we comment on this blog, you have no choice but to accept your actual sales figures. If we wanted more indie games, we’d pay for them.

    Speak for yourself

    Tattoo2250 said:

    October 8th, 3:06 pm

    I enjoY the indie title for their price and creativity. Speak for yourself. You also don’t have to continue your ps+ subscription if you dislike it so much.

    Underdog80 said:

    October 8th, 9:58 pm

    There weren’t that many super popular indie titles that released in September so your point is moot

gerneric123 said:

Tearaway Unfolded? More like Tearaway Uncharted.

    Hakumen__ said:

    October 8th, 10:31 am

    Unfortuantely this does seem to confirm that the reports on the game flopping in UK may indicate a general trend rather than an isolated case.

    Personally, I loved the PS Vita version, and was interested on getting the PS4 version, but it did looked like an important part of the focus of the game, namely in regards the interaction between Iota and You, was lost in the transition to PS4, so I decided to pass on it.

Thanks for putting Heroes of Loot on the list . It’s cheap but at least it made it to the list.

    Hakumen__ said:

    October 8th, 10:35 am

    Mega Man Legends managed to grab the 5th spot of September’s chart despite being released on the 29th.

    I hope Mega Man Legends 2 will join it at the PSN soon.

That’s awesome… and Very nice… I want see Crash Bandicoot games on the Vita…

Xcaligamer1 said:

Glad to see until dawn of. The list. I’m waiting til Halloween to get it

Nerroth said:

October 8th, 12:28 pm

I’d be curious to see whether or not Sword Art Online: Lost Song will inherit the Vita placing currently held by Hollow Fragment from November’s chart onward – and if the sales of Lost Song itself might bode well for the localization prospects of the next SAO game currently being developed over in Japan: Hollow Realization.

Nice to see Okami HD on the PS3 list. Still hangin’ tough. One of my favorite games of all time. Do yourself a favor and pick it up if you haven’t already. Just a massive, epic game with dozens of hours of gameplay. Sad we may never get a true sequel.

Destiny… everybody hates it, but still ends up buying and playing it!
