GTA 5 Tops June PlayStation Store Charts, Fortnite No Longer #1
E3 2018 may have dominated the majority of gaming’s collective focus in June, but PlayStation fans were still active as ever despite the relatively small-scale of releases. Older games were able to thrive in the more vacant landscape, propelling titles like Mortal Kombat XL and Horizon Zero Dawn into the top ten most downloaded games for the month. However, it was the money-pumping Grand Theft Auto 5 that reached #1 in the June PlayStation Store charts, with battle royale title Fortnite dropping from its own top spot.
While the ever-popular God of War continues to reign at #3, ensuing special events like the 2018 World Cup brought FIFA 18 to the overall #2 spot and E3’s showcase of The Last Of Us II inspired wide purchases of The Last Of Us Remastered, which came in at #4. The month wasn’t all just favorites making a comeback, as newer games such as Detroit: Become Human (#5) and Jurassic World Evolution (#7) earned respectable positions in the top ten list.
One of the biggest surprises happened on the Free-To-Play chart, with the debuting H1Z1 hitting #1, overtaking Fortnite in battle royale supremacy. Elsewhere in the charts, Job Simulator and Superhot ruled over PSVR downloads, Stardew Valley and God of War: Collection continued their hit status atop the Vita list, and the invading Destroy All Humans! 2 and yet another GTA game in San Andreas took over the Classics category.
What do you think? Are you disappointed Fortnite was eliminated from the top of its June PlayStation Store chart, or are you proud that God of War has continued its well-deserved popularity streak? Does Destroy All Humans! need to have another entry already?
