With the advancements of the modern age of technology, video games have evolved into something that goes far beyond what they were when they were first created. That applies to both hardware as much as software. This is proven when you consider that games are now not only offered in physical copy, but in digital copy, downloaded straight to your platform. One of the biggest ones is the PlayStation Store, which had quite a surprise in 2016 when Rocket League became the most downloaded game.
Yes, you heard that right, Rocket League was the PS Store’s most downloaded title, as revealed by Sony themselves. This is even more interesting when you consider that the game came out in 2015, not 2016, which shows that it grew its fanbase very consistently over the year. This also means it beat out big AAA titles such as Street Fighter V, The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy XV, No Man’s Sky, Battlefield 1 AND Call of Duty. Just to name a few. And trust us, there were some big titles we didn’t mention in that list, so for Rocket League to beat all that? Props to developer Psyonix’s for their skills in making the game, making it fun, and keep the content rolling.
So, what were the other big games that were downloaded in the PS Store? Well, for PS4, it Rocket League, Battlefield, Minecraft, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. For PS3, it was Minecraft, Last of Us, GTA V, and LittleBigPlanet 3.
For PlayStation VR it was Job Simulator, Batman: Arkham VR and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood. And finally, for PS Vita, it was Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth, Minecraft, and God Eater.
