We’re right in the thick of fall, which means new games are coming out left and right. October 2018 alone had two heavyweights, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2. The two games both had record-breaking launches and duked it out for the top spot. Ultimately, though, Call of Duty secured the victory and became the best selling PSN download. Despite coming out in the tail end of the month, however, Red Dead Redemption put up a good fight and clocked in at number two.

A pleasant surprise is the success of the PlayStation VR-exclusive Astro Bot Rescue Mission. The critically-acclaimed game managed to be the top-selling VR game for the month. Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood also made it’s debut in the top ten. If you missed it, it’s nostalgic package of two beloved games.
