The mixed critical reception Saints Row received at launch hasn't stopped it from becoming the best-selling PS5 game in Europe and the second best-selling in the USA for the month of August 2022. Volition's open world reboot was only beaten to first place in North America by Madden NFL 23, while it beat out competition from Grand Theft Auto V and Cult of the Lamb in both territories.
The latest indie hit took fourth position in the USA and third in Europe, while Stray remains popular in fifth for both regions. The rest of the top 10 is made up of PS5 titles like Horizon Forbidden West, F1 Manager 2022, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Cyberpunk 2077. You can view the entire top 20 through the link.
Saints Row's sales success doesn't carry over to the PS4 chart, though, where sports titles rule the roost. Madden NFL 23 topped the list in the USA, and FIFA 22 did the same across Europe. Minecraft then took second in both territories, and Grand Theft Auto V did the same in third.
It's also more good news for MultiVersus; the free-to-play hit was the most downloaded free game for the second month in a row. It beat out competition from Rumbleverse, Fall Guys, and Fortnite.
