PlayStation Store reveals 2021 most downloaded games

With 2021 officially in the rearview mirror, Sony has shared a pair of lists featuring the games that have sold the best on PlayStation Store. One of these lists focuses on the PlayStation 5, while the other focuses on the PlayStation 4. Of course, there are a lot more owners of PS4 than of PS5, and no specific sales data has. been proposed. Despite this, there are a number of interesting things that can be gleaned from looking at these lists. While many of the games on each list have remained the same, their placement was significantly different. The Top 10 in North America for both consoles can be found below.


  1. NBA 2K22
  2. Call of Duty: The Vanguard
  3. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
  4. Madden NFL 22
  5. Battlefield 2042
  6. Ratchet & Clank: Rift apart
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
  8. MLB The Show 21
  9. Resident Evil Village
  10. Far cry 6

  7. NBA 2K21
  8. Red Dead Redemption 2

Call of Duty: The VanguardThe PS5’s second place in the top 10 is pretty impressive considering it was released in November. As analyst @BenjiSales pointed out earlier this week, PS5 digital sales for Avant-garde actually slipped behind Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales in the month of December. That says a lot about the strength of the game’s digital sales in its first month!

As 2022 has just begun, there are already a significant number of games for PlayStation fans to get excited about this year, including major releases such as Horizon forbidden to the west and Gran Turismo 7, both of which are expected to be released in the first quarter of the year. Both games are slated for release on PS4 and PS5, so it will be interesting to see where they rank on these top 10 lists next year. The lead could propel them to the top of the list, or the major fourth quarter releases could dominate again. PlayStation fans will just have to wait and see!
