Sony has released its monthly breakdown of the best-selling games on the PlayStation Store. During a month in which there weren’t many major releases, June’s list of PS4 best-sellers in the US was led by Friday the 13th: The Game.
That may come as something of a surprise; Friday the 13th was released in late May, which means its launch-day sales would not have given it a boost on June’s charts. The game also suffered from serious technical issues in the wake of its launch, but apparently not enough to diminish interest in its asymmetric multiplayer offering. Free DLC offered as an apology may not have hurt, either.
PS4’s No. 2 game was Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. We know it got off to a strong start at retail in the UK, but this is another positive indication for those hoping the series continues. That’s especially true given Crash launched at the very end of the month and thus had very limited time
The No. 1 game during May, Injustice 2, fell all the way to the No. 15 spot, while much of the top 20 is comprised of games that were discounted during the month. Grand Theft Auto V continues to amaze with its consistently strong sales, occupying the No. 4 spot.
In terms of DLC, Call of Duty: Black Ops III’s Zombies Chronicles expansion took the top spot, followed by a pair of releases later in the month, Diablo III’s Rise of the Necromancer and Final Fantasy XIV’s Stormblood.
The PS3 and Vita charts, as is the norm, were also dictated largely by PSN sales throughout the month. FIFA 17 came out on top for PS3, while Vita’s best seller was the God of War Collection. The PS4 lists follow below; you can check out those for other platforms on the PlayStation Blog.
