Sony have revealed the download charts for games on Playstation Network for August and they make interesting reading. With some slight variations between American and Europe, certain games dominated the download charts.

Although Madden NFL 16 and Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist took top spot in the US charts, in Europe Rocket League and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture dominated the top spots:

It comes as no surprise that Rocket League and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture dominate the charts (also coming in high in the US chart) as they not only had good word of mouth. The fact that Rocket League is also free on Playstation Plus will have helped a lot too.

There will also be differences between different territories, and Madden NFL 16’s release in America will always dominate sales. It will be a different story of course in September when the results from Metal Gear Solid 5 sales show on the table, and the impact The Taken King will have on charts. Though that of course will class as an add-on. There will no doubt be an increase in Destiny sales though.
