The PlayStation Blog drops a list of the most downloaded games from the previous month on the PlayStation Store. Usually, you can see which new hot game was popular or what was on sale, but it’s interesting to see what your fellow gamers deemed worthy of their cash.
We have charts showing popularity in both US/Canada and EU territories, but the geographical divide doesn’t reflect too much of a taste divide, even when it comes to FIFA. We even have data broken out by platform, so I’ll start with the PS5 first. The top five games in US/Canada start with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales at number 1 followed by Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Demon’s Souls, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and NBA 2K21 Next Generation at number 5. For the EU, we start with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War followed by Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Demon’s Souls, and Watch Dogs: Legion ending the list.
The PS4 results are much the same. Starting with the EU first this time, we have Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War at number 1 followed by FIFA 21, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Grand Theft Auto V sitting pretty at number five. It is a perpetual best-seller, and that will probably continue whenever the next-gen release of GTA V happens.
For US/Canada, the number 1 downloaded game was Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Madden NFL 21, and FIFA 21 as the fifth-highest downloaded game. As you can see, we may be separated by consoles and an ocean, but our purchases reveal that there’s not that much difference in us. Maybe, there’s a lesson here somewhere. Maybe, it’s just a coincidence.

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.
