Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus PS5 PS4 PS2 PlayStation

Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus almost immediately became the most popular classic game released on PlayStation's PS Plus Premium service, quickly overtaking the previous PS1 champ, The Legend of Dragoon. Spotted by PSLS, Sucker Punch Production's 2002 action platformer took the top spot, according to gameplay analytics provided by TrueTrophies, edging out The Legend of Dragoon's debut player count by just 2.5%.

True Trophy cites its partnership with GameInsights, pulling data from over 3.1 million active PSN accounts. The Legend of Dragoon has held the top spot for over a year, so Sly seems to have pulled a fast one on the classic JRPG. Tomb Raider Legend, Twisted Metal, and Resistance Retribution comprise the rest of PS Plus Premium's top five most popular releases.
