PS5 And PS4's Most-Downloaded Games In February Include GTA 5, FIFA 21

As a new console generation kicked off, FIFA 21 scored a spectacular milestone goal on PS5.


It's another month to look at which games saw the biggest number of downloads on PlayStation consoles in the US and Canada, and unsurprisingly Grand Theft Auto V continues to dominate the top 20 list on PS4. Even with publisher Take-Two Interactive admitting that GTA V has begun to reach a point of oversaturation, it still finds itself at the top of charts regularly and January was no exception.

The PS4 chart saw very little change in its most-downloaded hierarchy. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare dropped down a few spots so that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War could take over its position, Red Dead Redemption 2 rose several slots higher, and newer sports games such as NBA 2K21 and Madden NFL 21 all found a position to grab hold of. As for new games, Little Nightmares II was downloaded enough to take fifth place, while Persona 5 Strikers came in at number eight.

It was followed by Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in second place, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales in third, and Madden NFL 21 in fourth. Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood was the newest game on the PS5 list and took the number 13 position, while Nioh 2 Remastered – The Complete Edition rose above the werewolf simulator and claimed the number 11 slot.

On the PlayStation VR side, Beat Saber was once again on top. It was followed by Job Simulator and Superhot VR, with a number of new entries on the list coming from older games such as Batman: Arkham VR and Swordsman VR.
