There was no stopping NBA 2K23 and FIFA 23 in September, as the two titles have traded places across PS5 and PS4 in North America and Europe respectively. EA Sports’ soccer sim has done especially well for itself on both sides of the pond when you consider it launched at the very tail end of the month – but clearly 2K Sports’ hooper is no slouch either.
It means that pricey PS5 remake The Last of Us: Part I was forced to settle in third position, which isn’t terrible considering the strength of the competition. On the back of Netflix anime Cyberpunk Edgerunners, the revived Cyberpunk 2077 climbed up the new-gen console charts, finishing fourth in Europe and fifth in North America. Meanwhile, whimsical life sim Disney Dreamlight Valley breached the top ten.
In terms of free-to-play games, Rumbleverse marched in front of Fortnite in Europe, while Beat Saber and Job Simulator utterly dominated the PSVR top ten across Europe and North America. You can find the full list of movers and shakers for September on the PS Blog, although there aren’t a whole lot of surprises this time.
