Sony Reveals Top Downloads For December 2018

Though it’s still freezing outside, Sony’s holiday season heated up the competition, selling more than 90 million PS4s as of December 31. In addition to being the fourth best-selling console of all time–currently behind the Wii, PlayStation, and PlayStation 2–Sony has announced that Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man has sold 9 million units digitally and physically as of November 25. To shed more light on the rest of the company’s stellar holiday season, Sony has released an official list of its top downloads for December 2018.

Leading the pack of PlayStation 4 games is PUBG Corporation’s battle royale title PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, which launched on December 7. Following that is Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 which has its own battle royale mode, Blackout. In third is Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V, a game that released during the last console generation and is still, ostensibly, making the studio a lot of money.

Moving over to PlayStation VR, it’s Beat Games’ Beat Saber on top. Second to the lightsaber rhythm game is Owlchemy Labs’Job Simulator, a game that released nearly three years ago. Placing in third is SIE London Studio’s PlayStation VR Worlds, a compilation of games Sony released alongside the company’s virtual reality headset back in October 2016.

On the free-to-play side of the PlayStation Store is, of course, Epic Games’ Fortnite–no surprise there. Taking the second spot is Crytek Kiev’s Warface. Following in third is yet another battle royale game, Daybreak Game Company’s H1Z1: Battle Royale.

Though Sony’s finally putting the PS Vita to rest by discontinuing production of the console’s physical games, the system still sold an approximate 15 million units in its lifetime. As such, Sony decided to document the top games the handheld sold in December. In front is SIE Santa Monica Studio’s God of War Collection. Following in second is Mass Media Games’ Jak and Daxter Collection. In third is Kojima Productions’ Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater HD Edition.

The list also includes the top December downloads for PS4 themes and PS Classic titles. Check the full list below:
