Psychological thriller Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice secured an impressive debut on the PlayStation Store, charting top of August’s digital best-sellers list in Europe and second in North America. The mental health masterpiece was beaten only by Madden NFL 18, which understandably touched down in the top spot ahead of the start of the new football season.
Sonic Mania fared incredibly well in the New World, entering in third, but was forced to settle for eighth place in Europe – a potentially disappointing result considering the Blue Blur has always been popular in these parts ever since the Mega Drive days. Superhot topped the PlayStation VR list across both sides of the Atlantic, while Uncharted: The Lost Legacy placed highly in both regions, too.
One interesting anecdote: Crash Bandicoot continues to be a huge seller in the PlayStation Classics category in Europe – despite the recent PS4 remaster being a big seller in these parts as well.
