Today, Zen Studios released its latest update to its PlayStation Network-exclusive flipper sim Zen Pinball. The Halloween-themed pinball table is titled Paranormal and features crypts, ghouls, and "the world's first"10-flipper playfield. However, even without the new offering, Zen Studios has been performing well on the PSN, as Sony announced today that the Zen Pinball was the top paid download on the service in September.
Though Sony did not offer sales numbers, the publisher did provide a look at the service's top 10 sellers. Following Zen Pinball was The Behemoth's Castle Crashers, which received a positive critical reception on its debut for the service at the end of August. A pair of PSP Minis followed, as Blast Off and Echoes slotted in at third and fourth. Rounding out the top five was Sony's Syphon Filter 3, which was first released on the original PlayStation in 2001.
Sega's Sonic Adventure, which itself was first released on the Dreamcast, fell in at sixth, while Hudson's aquatic sim My Aquarium picked up a seventh-place finish. In eighth was Ubisoft's beat-'em-up Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, followed by the top 10's only downloadable content, Red Dead Redemption's Legends and Killers Pack. Hothead Games also crept into the top 10 with DeathSpank: Thongs of Virtue.
