So Black Ops 4 above RDR2, impressive

Good to see Spider-Man and God of War strong as hell in both EU/NA top
Horizon 12th in EU top, glad for Guerrilla

Surprised to see Horizon Zero Dawn so high up in the EU, ahead of Battlefield V, Monster Hunter World and Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Seems like the game has strong legs. Shame we didn't get a top 20 for the US.

GTA V still killing it, God of War and Spider-Man doing incredibly well.

Disheartened by the lack of Astro Bot and to a lesser degree Tetris Effect in these PSVR lists. I can get not wanting to spend $40 on 'just another Tetris' (even though I disagree with that assessment), but Astro is GotY material and worth every cent of that $40.

EU good taste confirmed. They also have Astro Bot at No. 6, which is completely missing from the NA PSVR charts.

Incredible work from God of War and Spider-Man. Beat Saber is a VR phenomenon, it released super late, but no Astro Bot on the US side is pure abominaton. Still don't know anyone who plays Gang Beasts by the way.

A Monster Hunter game was a top 10 seller...what a weird world we live in.

Granted this is downloads, and I have a feeling people doing digital downloads are more likely to be "gamers" who play things like god of war or monster hunter.

Astro Bot missing from the US PSVR list is a little confusing. It's by far the most impressive and fun PSVR title out today.

No Astrobot in NA is horrible. Deserves to be #1! I know we had bundles with it but what of all the others who already had it? VR skews towards digital I feel too so I doubt it sold tons physically.

GTAV is a phenomenon, in top 5 after 4 years. Also I'm surprised how low AC Odyssey is on the EU charts, barely making it on the 20 spot.

I understand why it is that way but I'm kind of sad that it's the Kinect-style VR experiences that dominated the charts rather than the adventure games of various sorts. What I want to play is grand adventures like Doom, Astro Bot, Moss, Skyrim, Déraciné to play inside of a 3D world rather than to see my hands slice fruit with precision. I don't mean to imply that something like Beat Saber isn't a super fun and challenging rhythm game but it's not what I want personally.

Sad to see The Persistence not charting in either region and Astro Bot only in EU but I guess to a degree it "hurt" them to have retail releases.

The real issue is that Fifa 19 is the worst Fifa of all time by a huge margin. Arguably the worst gameplay ever.
To each their own, I appreciate the slower approach they did this year, feels like the biggest positive evolution the game had in a while. I remember years where the biggest thing was improved goalkeepers or female championships. FIFA 19 definitely feels like an evolution at least.

I mean the best way to score a goal is a finesse shot from outside the box lmao... You just need a yellow timing and the keeper is fucked , even from impossible angles...

I actually prefer the gameplay in Fifa 19. It might be an incremental step up, but it makes a difference. The quality of the AI, defence, tackles, overall balance and pace of games etc is just more realistic and methodical. We have an annual Christmas Fifa tournament (15-20 players), and the games were far closer and tighter this year than last. Albeit a slightly bit less exciting or dramatic, with fewer overall total goals.

Kind of surprised at how high Gang Beasts is, it's not really something I ever had the impression was particularly pushed compared to other indies. I mean, it's higher than Rocket League, and that is what I'd regard as "a particularly heavily pushed indie".

Edit: Similar "Huh?" for Destroy All Humans being so high up the Classics chart.

Count me in as surprised by the lack of Astro Bot for NA. Game is just so magical. Also, how is Rick and Morty up there? Love the show, but that game is ass.

Tetris Effect can be played non-VR, so it's possible that it's competing in the regular chart and that's more difficult for it to enter.

I wish the US did a top 20. As so many have pointed out here, Astro Bot not making the top 10 is shocking. A lot of PSVR owners are in for a real treat when they get around to it.

Very true actually. Which is why I don't believe Resident Evil VII shows up on these lists. Still a shame about Astro Bot.

Man this shows how HARD BFV bombed

This is a direct consequence of the SW debacle from last year. I’m kind of sad for DICE :/
