PlayStation Store: April Top Downloads Revealed For Europe and NA; Persona 5 and FIFA 17 at the Top

Persona 5 and FIFA 17 come out on top in the month of April.

Today, Sony released the PlayStation Store’s top downloaded games for the month of April in North America and Europe.

As you may remember, the PS4 charts in March in Europe were topped by Guerrilla Game’s PS4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn. This month however, it slipped all the way to 20th, in part (if not largely) thanks to the numerous sales on games that pushed them — rather out of nowhere — into the top 20. Games like Dragon Age Inquisition, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Shadow of Mordor, and Sniper Elite 3 (so not even the new one) all resurfaced onto the charts thanks to sales. The new top dog for the charts is a familiar face — and constant chart topper — and that’s FIFA 17. FIFA 17 is followed by old-time chart appearer GTA V at number two, and new-blood chart appearer ARK: Survival Evolved, which notably topped the charts for December – February.

Notable debuts for the month Persona 5 and Outlast II, managed to grab 13th and 16th respectively. Yooka-Laylee, the other notable debut for this month, did not crack its way into the charts.

Meanwhile for the North American PS4 chart — which are slightly less riddled by sales — Atlus’ Persona 5 came out on top, followed by GTA V at number two and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection at number three. Yooka-Laylee also failed to crack this list, meanwhile Outlast 2 came in at number 9.

On the PS VR charts, the European version of the chart was topped by Job Simulator, which was overthrown in the North America PS VR chart by newcomer Mortal Blitz. Statik from Tarsier Studios, which also debuted during the month, managed to crack both lists, which is personally music to my ears, as it is perhaps my favorite VR game yet.
