PlayStation Store: March’s Top Downloads

Posted by on Apr 09, 2018

Three huge new releases, three top spots on the PS4 chart. Ubisoft’s latest open-world chaos simulator Far Cry 5 reigned supreme in PS4 download numbers last month, followed by San Diego Studio’s newest entry in the fabled MLB The Show series. Finally, Hazelight’s bold new co-op prison break adventure A Way Out rounded out the top three.

Shout out to my new best friend Quill, whose itty-bitty adventure Moss sits atop the PlayStation VR chart for March. Persona 4 Golden is numero uno for PS Vita, and — surprise! — Fortnite Battle Royale was the most popular free-to-play title for the month.

PlayStation Store: September’s Top Downloads

Posted by on Oct 06, 2017

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.
