Crash-COVER

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was the most-downloaded PlayStation 4 game in North America last month, as well as the best-selling game in Europe last month through the PlayStation Store. It was “followed closely” by the heavily discounted Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor GOTY Edition in NA, while in Europe, “the PlayStation icon’s return to action has been doing huge numbers all month and held on to the top spot with ease.”

Looking at PlayStation VR, Superhot VR opened at #1 in both territories, while Arizona Sunshine placed in 2nd in North America and 5th in Europe.

As for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, The Last of Us, God of War: Ascension, God of War Collection, Jak and Daxter Collection, and plenty of other older games had great months in North America thanks to deep discounts.

Here’s the most-downloaded PlayStation games of July 2017 through the PlayStation Store in North America, as well as the best-selling PlayStation games of July 2017 through the PlayStation Store in Europe (European charts also show last month’s rankings):
