Batman: Arkham VR And Job Simulator Come Out On Top In PlayStation VR Best Sellers Chart


PlayStation VR has been out just shy of a month as of today, and as such, Sony has published the first chart for the headset showing which games proved to be the most popular among those that adopted the new piece of tech.

The top 10 best sellers in Europe and the US have both been released, and while there’s a few discrepancies between the two, they’re largely the same. The most notable differences are the two titles taking the top spot. In Europe, Batman: Arkham VR has emerged in first place while in the US, Job Simulator has inched past Rocksteady’s ultimate Batman experience to clinch #1.

Unsurprisingly, the more expensive games included in the launch line-up have charted in a lower position, with the only exception being EVE: Valkyrie, a spinoff of CCP Games’ MMO of the same name.

See below for the top 10 charts for both territories.

  2. PlayStation VR Worlds
  3. Until Dawn: Rush of Blood
  4. Here They Lie
  5. Tumble VR

Do note, however, that the lists provided by Sony only account for downloads made directly from the PlayStation Store, so physical sales aren’t accounted for.

Regardless, the above gives us a pretty good idea of the sorts of experiences gamers are looking for with virtual reality, and considering Rocksteady touted Arkham VR as the ultimate Batman experience, we always expected that it would be the killer app to beat.
