Mortal Kombat Kollection tops September PSN sales
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's arcade fighter compilation the best-selling game on Sony's PS3 storefront last month; Resident Evil series claims four of the top 20 spots.
Everything old is new again. Sony today released its list of the top 20 best-selling PlayStation Network games for the month of September, and fully half of the list--including six of the top 10 titles--consisted of retro rereleases.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection topped the list. Released in the last week of August, the coin-op compilation packed in ports of the original Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II, and Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.
Meanwhile, the Resident Evil series swarmed the sales charts much like its zombie antagonists. The HD rerelease of Resident Evil 4 was the second best seller of the month, with Resident Evil 2 and 3 finishing fifth and sixth, respectively. The Director's Cut version of the original Resident Evil was the 11th best seller. Other vintage releases appearing on the list included the online-enabled Street Fighter III: Third Strike (eighth place), PSone role-playing games Final Fantasy VII (10th place) and Breath of Fire IV (15th place), the PSone action-adventure Parasite Eve II (12th place), and Activision's Call of Duty Classic (18th place).
As for newer offerings, Ubisoft's god game From Dust made it to third place on the charts, while mobile sensation Angry Birds catapulted into fourth place.
