August’s Top Downloaded PSN Games Features Madden, Sonic

Even though it’s technically still summer, the holiday season for games officially kicked off last month, with the release of some of the year’s most anticipated titles.

Over on PlayStation Blog, PSN’s most downloaded titles in August were revealed earlier today, and while the #1 spot being occupied by the ever-popular Madden NFL 18 may come as no surprise, the second and third spots may be a bit more unexpected: Ninja Theory’s psychological new IP Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, and the throwback to classic 2D Sonic games, Sonic Mania. Meanwhile, Grand Theft Auto V continues to dominate on PS3, while Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Zombie Chronicles was the most downloaded PS4 add-on. Superhot VR and Undertale, two 2016 releases that both made their way to Sony platforms this past summer, have also found success recently, reaching the top PSVR and PS Vita titles respectively.
