Infinite Wealth And Tekken 8 Couldn’t Topple The Giants Of The PlayStation Store Last Month



January used to be a slow month on the gaming calendar, as after the traditional Q4 rush of AAA game releases, most developers and publishers opted to take a brief break at the start of a new year. Times have changed in the last few years, and these days, it’s not unusual to see several big games released to help kick the year off with a bang. What is unusual is to see these games face stiff competition from legacy titles, as the most-downloaded games on the PlayStation Store for January feature old favorites at the top.

There are some caveats to these numbers, as the charts obviously don’t include physical sales and are based solely on PlayStation platforms. In the US and Canada, Tekken 8 slugged its way to fourth place on PS5, while Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Grand Theft Auto 5, and Madden NFL took the top three spots. In Europe, Bandai Namco’s new fighting game debuted in fifth place, while GTA 5 celebrated a first-place finish for the month.

January’s other big game release was Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, but it finished in 14th place on the US and Canadian PS5 download charts. In Europe, the return of Ichiban Kasuga didn’t even crack the top 20, but it is worth noting that Infinite Wealth was released late in the month on January 26. Publisher Sega and developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio did confirm that Infinite Wealth is the fastest-selling game to date in the Yakuza / Like a Dragon series, having sold more than one million units worldwide across PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One.

Meanwhile, EA Sports FC 24 is a regular on these lists when looking at Europe’s top downloads, as it was the second-most-downloaded PS5 game in that region and the most-downloaded game on PS4. You can take a closer look at the top PSN games below, and for February, we might see Square Enix’s new team-based bubble-shooter Foamstars make a big splash. The game is currently available as one of the February PS Plus for Essential downloads alongside Steelrising and Rollerdrome.
