PlayStation Store: May 2021’s Top Downloads

With strong debuts from Resident Evil Village and Mass Effect: Legendary Edition.

Like Lady Dimitrescu herself, Resident Evil Village towered over the competition in May’s PlayStation Store charts, earning the survival horror adventure the top spot not only on the US and EU PS5 charts, but the EU PS4 list as well.

Returnal, FIFA 21, and MLB The Show 21 made impressive showings on PS5 as well, while Rust Console Edition, Minecraft, and Mass Effect Legendary Edition earned high placements on PS4. Beat Saber and Call of Duty: Warzone continue to dominate on the PS VR and Free-to-Play charts, respectively.

The full charts, as always, can be found below. Hit the comments and let us know how you think June’s releases will shake out. I can think of a certain Lombax and a certain ex-SOLDIER who will be vying for the coveted #1 spot…

  • And people said Returnal wouldn’t sell at $70

    • For a new IP game to be successful, it has to be well supported by marketing, well liked by the early adopters / reviewers and have a wide enough appeal with core gamers based on early gameplay impressions.

      The last bit is about timing / competition and that is what makes new console launches and exclusivity an attractive way for new IP games to come to market.

    • Being 3rd on a download chart that’s basically entirely made of older releases doesn’t necessarily mean it sold well, just better than some other things. The only other new games are either above it or smaller niche games.

      The PS5 also has a very, vey low attach rate, for whatever reason, making it even easier to chart higher.

  • Happy to see Returnal selling. Please make more of this kind of game.

  • I like how Mortal Kombat X is still top download 😁

    • SinisterScurlock

      Probably because MK11 has no real content aside from story mode. MKX at least had some decent towers, Test your luck and might,

  • Go Returnal go!!!

  • Resident evil 8 village #1 on the list hope we get DLC at some point like RE7

  • ❤ Returnal, Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls
