The holiday season has started off strong, with the launch of some massive games in late October and November and, of course, all of the late-November sales around Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Sony has just released the list of November’s most-downloaded games on the PlayStation Store, giving us a glimpse of which games of the bunch are proving to be the most successful.
Taking home the number one most-downloaded spot on the PlayStation 4 was Call of Duty: WWII, which released early in the month and continued to see strong sales throughout. Despite massive backlash against its use of microtransactions, Star Wars Battlefront II took second place. Horizon Zero Dawn rose back up to the third place spot, likely to due to the release of that game’s first major expansion, The Frozen Wilds.
PlayStation VR also had one hotshot game in the form of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, which leapt to the top of the most-downloaded game chart. The closest runner-up was Job Simulator. FIFA 18 Legacy Edition was the most popular game of the month on the PlayStation 3, while PS Vita users preferred to download that platform’s God of War Collection.
There’s only one month left to go in 2017, and while there aren’t a ton of new games left to release, many are likely to see a spike in sales for the holidays. Be sure to check back to see which games end up being the best-selling of 2017.
