PlayStation Store charts, August 2013: Payday 2 and DuckTales dominate

Payday 2 Screenshots, 01

A little later than usual, I’m happy to present you with the August PlayStation Store charts for the PAL region. As usual, a number of older titles saw sales spikes due to discounts, but there were still a number of big new entries.

Overkill’s squad shooter sequel Payday 2 debuted at number one on the PS3 chart, Capcom’s re-imagined take on DuckTales entered at number one on the PSN rundown, and the brilliant indie platformer Spelunky stormed into the PS Vita chart at six, despite only being on sale for two days of the month.

Wow, wasn’t expecting Payday 2 to get so high…

Whatever, congrats to Overkill!

On Ducktales, I keep hearing great things off it. I guess it’s time to watch a vid or something…

No Castle of Illusion? You guys are missing out!

Nice to see Journey still being a top seller! Fantastic game!

@2: Remember this is for August — Castle of Illusion will be in the next chart (September) if anything!

@4 Doh, yeah. I forgot we’re in September already!

I know Killzone will most likely be #1 for Vita this month, providing Terraria isn’t out this month.

I cant believe fruit ninja is so high for vita. compared to smartphones the price is a rip off

What time (GMT) will the GTA V unlock be up on the PS Store? Will it be at 00.00 GMT?

It confuses me that people like DuckTales so much. I mean I played the original in its days and I didn’t consider it to be anything special then …

Nice that Spelunky is such a success. I think it might beat even Killzone for September. :)


Sorry to be one of those off-topic people, but when will we find out the results of the Ultimate Gaming Package competition?


We’ll be announcing those in the next week or so, hold tight.

@9 I enjoyed DuckTales far, far more than Spelunky which I didn’t like much at all.

Nice to see Superfrog edge in there. It’s still a highly playable and enjoyable platformer. A lot more so than most games on PSN these days…


i can tell you now u lot gvaV is gonna wipe every ps3 game and every ps3 game coming out soon on its bottom and flush it down the toilet because NO GAME WILL NOT NEVER NO WAY AND WONT BEAT GTAV

i did my protest about gtaV and you all got the point gtaV will beat every ps3 game nuff said case closed see ya :P



DuckTales, WOO-OH! Hopefully we’ll see Chip’n’Dale and QuackShot soon. DuckTales 2 would be awesome too. And Darkwing Duck! And… :D

And Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix comes this week and I haven’t finished Castle of Illusions yet! I blame that awesome sale you have going on, got both Legasista and Disgaea (double the grinding, both home and on the go!) and Corpse Party Book of Shadows. So many great games, for both PS3 and Vita! ;)

I’m really glad to see Spelunky in the Vita chart. It’s almost been the only game I’ve been playing since it’s release. So many hidden doors and techniques. Also some of the best couch co-op I’ve played on the PS3 in ages!

i would really like it if you could get Call of Duty Black Ops Zombies from the PSN store for the vita even if it it a mini, I have it on my android device but I think it will be incredibly better on the Vita especially if it looks like Killzone Mercenary (great job buy the way love it)

According how SCEE “act”, at least on second place there should be Singstar. Because everybody loves it……. no really, it’s finally time to get rid of it!!!


Would love to see Ducktales on Vita, any plans for this?


just like to say killzone mercenary is absolutely fantastic, strong urge everyone to buy this game. best by far on the vita, sorry for going of topic for


I hope to see Kingdom Hearts 1.5 make it in the top 10 next month. My game has been dispatched. Sadly it had to be released at such a bad timing cos I may not get to play it for some time now. :(

Pretty sure Killzone will make it to number one for the Vita. It has to!

But for this month well done to Overkill. They made a great game and it’s been fun. Sadly it’s a goodbye from me as I have new games to play. But got the platinum for it so got as much as I could get from it. Took many hours to get to the highest level.

Hey Fred, any chance you could tell us when we can expect the next PS+ update? Excited to see what we’ll be getting in October :D


Yes, we’ll announce this next week. Cracking month ahead ;)

Why can’t we download the #GTAV on the EU PSN store?? YOU said on September 13!!!!!

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
