Final Fantasy VII Remake Was the Top-Selling Game on PlayStation Store in April

The long-awaited Final Fantasy VII Remake climbed its way to the top of the PlayStation Store charts in April, followed not far behind by RE3.

Though the first half of the year has been upended in significant ways by the coronavirus pandemic, this spring has still been a great one for video games. Several long-anticipated games have finally made their way to gamers everywhere, including the highly-anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake. As a reimagining of a JRPG classic, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the game sold incredibly well on the PlayStation Store last month.

Over on the PlayStation Blog, the charts for the top-selling digital games on PlayStation Store were officially revealed. As expected, Final Fantasy VII Remake came out on top as the best-selling digital title on the PlayStation Store last month on the US chart, and came in at #4 in Europe. You can check out the charts for both regions below.

April 2020 was a busy month for new game releases, but it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Final Fantasy VII Remake would end up coming out on top. While the PlayStation Store charts only account for digital sales, FFVII Remake shipped a total of 3.5 million copies within its first few days on sale. Likewise, many of April’s other big releases made their way onto the charts, with Resident Evil 3 charting at #6 in the US, the remastered campaign of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 coming in at #5, and Predator: Hunting Grounds debuting at #14.
