It’s another month to look at which games saw the biggest number of downloads on PlayStation consoles in the US and Canada, and unsurprisingly Grand Theft Auto V continues to dominate the top 20 list on PS4. Even with publisher Take-Two Interactive admitting that GTA V has begun to reach a point of oversaturation, it still finds itself at the top of charts regularly and January was no exception.
The PS4 chart saw very little change in its most-downloaded hierarchy. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare dropped down a few spots so that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War could take over its position, Red Dead Redemption 2 rose several slots higher, and newer sports games such as NBA 2K21 and Madden NFL 21 all found a position to grab hold of. As for new games, Little Nightmares II was downloaded enough to take fifth place, while Persona 5 Strikers came in at number eight.
On PS5 it was a different story for the top spot as FIFA 21 was the most-downloaded game of the month. It was followed by Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in second place, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales in third, and Madden NFL 21 in fourth. Werewolf: The Apocalypse – Earthblood was the newest game on the PS5 list and took the number 13 position, while Nioh 2 Remastered – The Complete Edition rose above the werewolf simulator and claimed the number 11 slot.
