Best-Selling PS4, PS3, and PS Vita Games on PSN for August 2015 Revealed

Goat Simulator capitalizes on the mostly ignored goat simulation market.


Sony has released its monthly list of the best-selling games on the PlayStation Store in North America during August 2015, and the latest Madden was among the top games on both PS3 and PS4.

On Sony's newest console, it was Madden 16 that came out on top. Surprisingly, it was immediately followed not by Rocket League, Until Dawn, or Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (the number 3, 4, and 5 games, respectively), but Yu-Gi-Oh: Legacy of the Duelist. This is a new card card game released at the very end of July for both PS4 and Xbox One for $20.

The biggest surprise of the month may have been Minecraft being bumped from the top spot on PS3--which it's dominated almost every month since release--by Goat Simulator, which debuted on PS3 and PS4 in August.
