Sony Reveals 2020’s Most Downloaded PS4 and PS5 Games
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is unsurprisingly the biggest winner.
Sony and PlayStation had a phenomenal year last year. The PS4 cemented its place as the second best-selling home console of all time, the PS5 had a very successful launch, despite a few stock issues and Sony Worldwide Studios released a lot of incredible games.
As part of the PlayStation Blog, Sony has looked back at the most downloaded titles of last year across the PS4, PS5 and PSVR and has kindly collated them for both Europe and the US/Canada.
The PS5 download charts are as follows:
|1.||Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War||Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War|
|2.||Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales||Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales|
|3.||Assassin’s Creed Valhalla||Assassin’s Creed Valhalla|
|4.||NBA 2K21 Next Generation||FIFA 21|
|5.||Demon’s Souls||Demon’s Souls|
|6.||Madden NFL 21||Watch Dogs: Legion|
|7.||FIFA 21||Immortals Fenyx Rising|
|8.||Sackboy: A Big Adventure||NBA 2K21 Next Generation|
|9.||Immortals Fenyx Rising||Sackboy: A Big Adventure|
|10.||Watch Dogs: Legion||Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege|
There’s little surprise at the top of the chart, with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War taking the number one spot in both regions. Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla took the number two and three spots across both regions, but then the charts start to split. The two regions sporting preferences start to show as NBA 2K21 takes fourth in the US/Canada and FIFA 21 in Europe. Demon’s Souls takes fifth in both regions and then a combination of Watch Dogs: Legion, Immortals Fenyx Rising and Sackboy: A Big Adventure fill the majority of the remaining spots.
The PS4 charts are as follows:
|1.||Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War||FIFA 21|
|2.||Grand Theft Auto V||FIFA 20|
|3.||Call of Duty: Modern Warfare||Grand Theft Auto V|
|4.||Minecraft||Call of Duty: Modern Warfare|
|5.||Ghost of Tsushima||Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War|
|6.||The Last of Us Part II||Minecraft|
|7.||NBA 2K21||NBA 2K20|
|8.||NBA 2K20||The Last of Us Part II|
|9.||Final Fantasy VII Remake||The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt|
|10.||Madden NFL 21||Red Dead Redemption 2|
The PlayStation 4’s chart offers a little more variation. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War dominates again in the US/Canada, however, only manages to muster up a paltry fifth spot in Europe. It is usurped by FIFA 20 and FIFA 21, which take second and first spot respectively, GTA V (which is second in the US/Canada) and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Then the surprises start to creep in. The Last of Us Part II (6th) was downloaded fewer times than Ghost of Tsushima (5th) in the US/Canada and only managed to take eighth spot in Europe, with Ghost of Tsushima missing out on the top 10. Final Fantasy VII Remake just crept in at ninth place in the US/Canada, again, missing out in Europe. Red Dead Redemption 2, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Madden 21 are some of the other key titles that make up the chart.
Sony also shared the PSVR Chart:
|1.||Beat Saber||Beat Saber|
|2.||Job Simulator||Job Simulator|
|3.||Superhot VR||Blood & Truth|
|4.||The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners||Superhot VR|
|5.||Gorn||The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners|
|6.||Creed Rise to Glory||Creed: Rise to Glory|
|7.||Arizona Sunshine||Astro Bot Rescue Mission|
|8.||Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series||Gorn|
|9.||Astro Bot Rescue Mission||Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series|
|10.||Marvel’s Iron Man VR||Arizona Sunshine|
And most downloaded free to play games across both PS4 and PS5:
|1.||Call of Duty: Warzone||Call of Duty: Warzone|
|2.||Rocket League||Rocket League|
|4.||Apex Legends||Apex Legends|
|5.||Rogue Company||Hyper Scape|
|6.||Hyper Scape||Genshin Impact|
|7.||Genshin Impact||Rogue Company|
|10.||Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Lite||eFootball PES 2020 Lite|
Neither of which offered any major surprises.
