PSN’s top PS4 downloads for August have some new, some old, and some obvious answers, if you have been playing this little download bingo for a while. First, let’s drop the somewhat perennial games from the top ten. GTA V is unstoppable at number six, and Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition is ninth.
Continuing on with some older games, EA Sports UFC 2 is not submitting at tenth place, and this may have been driven by the McGregor fight or (more likely) a sale during the month. Friday the 13th: The Game is continuing its steady pace at 7th as the developers continue to slash bugs.
For the newer games, the indie darling Undertale non-violently leveled up to 8th, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy climbs to an adventurous 5th place, and Sonic Mania blasts to 3rd. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice had a breakdown over being 2nd place, and Madden NFL 18 (FIFA’s American cousin) scored a touchdown at number 1.
You can see top downloads for the PS3, the PS Vita, PSVR, and more on the PlayStation Blog.
We will go out on a limb and say that Destiny 2 will probably be on next month’s list. Drop your (hopefully less obvious) guesses in the comments.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
