PlayStation Store: September’s Top Downloads

Welcome back! We’ve got some fresh, pipin’ hot charts for ya — the US PlayStation Store top downloads for September 2017, specifically.

Looks like Destiny 2 was a popular choice for PS4 players in September, with a triple-attack of new sports titles (NBA 2K18, FIFA 18, Madden NFL 18) just behind it. The surprise announcement and immediate availability of Final Fantasy IX on PS4 helped it round out the top 5.

CCP’s Sparc made a strong debut at #2 on the PS VR charts, but it wasn’t quite enough to dethrone the super-cool Superhot VR. Finally, Undertale fans are determined to keep Toby Fox’s quirky RPG masterpiece at the top of the PS Vita chart, and they did so handily.
