Top 20 Best-Selling PS4 Games On PSN For April 2017 Revealed - Persona 5 on US top

Persona 5 is not out yet in Euro?

Top 20 Best-Selling PS4 Games On PSN For April 2017 Revealed - Persona 5 takes the top spot in the US, but not Europe.

Sony has announced the top-selling games and DLC on the PlayStation Store for April, and it was Persona 5 that came out on top of the PS4 charts in the United States.

Persona 5 launched on April 4, giving it the benefit of having almost a full month to rack up sales. (Compare that with MLB The Show 17, which launched on March 28 and made it to No.4 on the US charts for March and No. 5 for April.) For its part, the PS3 version of Persona 5 made it to No. 3 in the US but didn't rank in the top 10 for Europe. The PS4 version was the No. 13 game in Europe.

There weren't a ton of major releases on PS4 in April, which may explain why the rest of the top five was mostly comprised of older games: Grand Theft Auto V, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, and The Last of Us Remastered in the US, and FIFA 17, GTA V, Ark: Survival Evolved, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and Sniper Elite III in Europe.

March's big, chart-topping releases fell pretty steeply in April. Ghost Recon: Wildlands fell to No. 9 (No. 10 in Europe), Horizon Zero Dawn to No. 13 (No. 20 in Europe), and Mass Effect: Andromeda to No. 15 (not in Europe's top 20).

You can check out the full PS4 lists below, or head over to the PlayStation Blog posts for the US and Europe to see lists for all platforms and DLC.

Horizon Zero dawn deserves more sales I think. One of my favorite games ever.

Who the fuck owns a PS4 and not The Last of Us by now? I get that it's a favorite and kind of a must own...but for it to outsell some of those other games on that list is kind of insane.

P5 has been out for quite a while in europe (i think it released around the same time as the US).

I bought it on launch day, even though i havent gotten around to play it.

Actually... its there on 13th.

Europeans aren't big on digital purchases. I think most of us just go for the discounts. New releases don't usually top charts.

Uh... Yeah! Whoever doesn't should burn in hell for that.

Not suprises looking at P5 toping digital sales. Haven't found a single freaking copy of P5.

Atlus still got that annoying limited distribution.

I don't. That game was fucking garbage. Especially the ending.

I'll hop on this train.

I didn't like the last of us very much either. It was disjointed story wise and they couldn't even bother with a final boss fight. :3

I recently bought the ps4 version of TLOU when the full game was on sale cheaper than the dlc I never got on the ps3.
