January kicked off 2019 with an explosive start. According to our PlayStation Store charts for the most-downloaded games of January, the battle for the top spot came down to the hugely anticipated releases of Resident Evil 2 and Kingdom Hearts III. It was close, but the Magical Kingdom overtook Raccoon City, with Kingdom Hearts III seizing the crown.
In a highly competitive month, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 managed to secure the #1 spot on the PS4 chart. Japan Studio’s fantastic Astro Bot: Rescue Mission sits atop the PlayStation VR list (well-deserved, I’d say), and we event got some slick new PS4 Themes from the likes of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and The Last of Us: Part II.
Welcome back! First Contact Entertainment’s tactical PS VR team shooter Firewall Zero Hour debuted at the top of the PlayStation VR downloads chart for August 2018. On the PS4 side, Madden NFL 19 took the top spot, followed by Guerrilla’s open-world masterpiece Horizon Zero Dawn and our old pal Grand Theft Auto V. The prophecy foretells that GTA V will continue to sell decades from now, long after the sun has imploded and left our galaxy a cold, lifeless void.
Grand Theft Auto V tops the chart for the second month straight! Is this reignited interest thanks to the Red Dead hype train kicking into gear? Or perhaps it’s the impressive new “After Hours” DLC just added to GTA Online. Maybe it’s that Stone Hatchet you can unlock in GTA and RDR2. Either way, congrats Rockstar!
