PS4's Best-Selling Games On PSN For January 2019 Revealed

PS4 players love Resident Evil 2 and Kingdom Hearts 3.


Now that February is here, Sony has revealed last month's best-selling PS4 games on PSN in the US and Europe. January saw the launch of two of this year's most anticipated titles, Capcom's Resident Evil 2 remake and Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts 3, and each one unsurprisingly charted highly on both sides of the pond.

Kingdom Hearts 3 was the most-downloaded PS4 game in the US in January, with Resident Evil 2 taking the runner-up spot. The survival horror game proved to be even more popular across the Atlantic; it was Europe's best-selling PSN game for January, while Kingdom Hearts debuted at No. 6.

The rest of the chart was made up largely of the usual suspects, including Rockstar's perennial hit Grand Theft Auto V, which continues to sell astoundingly well despite its age; the game was No. 2 and No. 3 in Europe and the US, respectively. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 took the No. 4 spot in the US, while PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, which made its PS4 debut in December, was No. 5 in Europe and No. 6 in the US.

Sony also revealed PSN's best-selling PSVR titles of January. The VR rhythm game Beat Saber topped the chart on both sides of the Atlantic, but the remainder of the list was almost entirely different in each region. Job Simulator and PlayStation VR Worlds came in No. 2 and No. 3 in the US, while Astro Bot: Rescue Mission and Creed: Rise to Glory made up the rest of Europe's top three.
