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.
The numbers are in for February 2018! Capcom’s excellent (and record-breaking) Monster Hunter: World leads the charge in February’s PS4 chart, followed by NBA Live 18: The One Edition and Bluepoint’s gargantuan rework of Shadow of the Colossus.
Superhot and Job Simulator sit pretty at the top of the PlayStation VR list, Fortnite and Brawlhalla dominate the free-to-play rankings, and the new Secret of Mana remake debuts at #1 for PS Vita.
Your top downloads for January are here! Surprising nobody, Monster Hunter: World was the most-downloaded PS4 game of January. The first PS4 entry in Capcom’s long-running series launched to critical acclaim, and players worldwide (myself included) are hooked on its expertly tuned gameplay loop.
You may have already seen the top downloads list for the year of 2017, but we are now back to our regularly scheduled monthly charts. Welcome! Here are the lists for the month of December 2017, featuring a respectably strong debut from Boneloaf’s extra-floppy platform brawler Gang Beasts.
These charts are sorted by number of downloads from PlayStation Store, rather than total revenue, and free-to-play games are not included (though we’re looking to add a separate chart for those in future installments of this post).
Welcome to 2018! The future!
We all know 2017 was an incredible year for games, but now we can see exactly which ones players picked up. Read on to see PlayStation Store’s most-downloaded PS4 and PS VR games for the year of 2017. You’ll notice we’ve added a category for top PS4 Themes, as well.
Welcome back! August was a heck of a month for game launches — let’s see who came out on top (besides people who like to play good games, of course).
Madden NFL 18 was the most downloaded game on PS4, followed by Hellblade and Sonic Mania. Undertale (a recent favorite of mine) led the PS Vita list, and Superhot VR topped the PlayStation VR chart.
Miss any of the games on this list? Head over to PlayStation Store to pick ’em up! At least one of them will fill you with determination!
Woah! Crash Bandicoot’s long-awaited N. Sane Trilogy spun to the top of the PS4 download charts last month, followed closely by Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor (there’s still time to catch up before Shadow of War!). The insanely stylish (and just awesome overall) Superhot VR took the top spot for PlayStation VR, which makes sense since the game can, ya know, control the flow of time and everything. Seems like an unfair advantage, to be honest.
June was not a great month to be a camp counselor… Friday the 13th: The Game racked up more downloads on PS4 than anything else for the month, followed by the celebrated return of Crash Bandicoot in the N. Sane Trilogy.
Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer and Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood made strong debuts on the PS4 Add-ons chart (but not quite strong enough to take down Call of Duty Zombies Chronicles), and Arizona Sunshine rocketed straight to the top of the PlayStation VR list.
