PlayStation VR Games Top Japanese PS4 Digital Sales Ranking: Kitchen, Summer Lesson and Rez are Top 3

on October 23, 2016 5:18 PM

Sony Interactive Entertainment published the latest ranking for PS4 downloads on the Japanese PSN. This gives a better glimpse on how PlayStation VR games are doing in the country, since only two (RIGS and PlayStation VR Worlds) were launched at retail, and managed to sell only 9,000 copies combined.

The ranking was dominated by PlayStation VR games, with Capcom’s  Kitchen on top (unsurprisingly, since it was priced at only 100 yen), followed by Summer Lesson, which (again, unsurprisingly) is the best-selling game with a real price tag on it. Rez Infinite follows in third place.

Further VR games are a bit lower in the ranking, with PlayStation VR Worlds in 5th place, The Idolmaster: Cinderella Girls Viewing Revolution in 7th, Batman: Arkham VR in 10th, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood in 11th, Hatsune Miku in 13th and RIGS tailing in 18th place.

It’s fairly obvious that most users resorted to digital means to get their games in PlayStation VR’s debut week in Japan, and if you’re surprised that Summer Lesson was the most popular (excluding the super-cheap Kitchen) among them, you’re very, very naive.

You can find the full ranking below.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
