Top PlayStation 5 Downloads For March Include Black Ops Cold War and FIFA 21
GTA 5 is no longer at the top of the PlayStation download charts as fan-favorite franchises return to the top spots.
PlayStation’s monthly charts are gradually starting to evolve as more and more people manage to get their hands on PS5s. However, as is demonstrated via the charts in the US and Europe for March 2021, fan-favorite franchises will also be there or thereabouts. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was the most downloaded game from the PS Store in the US, while FIFA 21 was the best seller in Europe.
The charts do include a lot of titles that go to show the PS5’s reach is getting bigger and bigger despite shortages. Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls made the top ten in both regions. Although both titles are available on PS5, both were also PS5 launch titles and are clearly being picked up by more and more PS5 newcomers.
As for PS4, even though it has been on the market for almost eight years, GTA 5 was the number three most downloaded game in both the US and Europe. That’s actually a drop compared to February when GTA 5 was the most downloaded game on the PS Store. It will likely have the same effect on the PS5 charts when its new-gen version is released later this year.
Harkening back to the PS5 shortages, and more evidence that the console is reaching more homes every day comes in the form of consoles it has already outsold. After just four months, the PS5 has already outsold the Wii U and Sega’s Dreamcast. We’re not sure if that says more about the PS5 or the consoles it has left eating its dust.
As for the rest of the charts, the high placement of It Takes Two in both regions is great to see. The fun co-op game has been the surprise hit of 2021 and is clearly taking the world by storm. It has been getting rave reviews across the board, including some glowing words from us here at TheGamer. Crash Bandicoot’s 4: It’s About Time’s presence in both charts is also evidence a lot of people are keen to play the game on PS5.

Josh has been gaming for as long as he can remember. That love began with a mild childhood addiction to the Sega Genesis, or Mega Drive since he lives in the UK. Back then, Sonic 2 quickly became his favorite game and as you might have guessed from his picture, the franchise has remained close to his heart ever since. Nowadays, he splits his time between his PS4 and his Switch and spends far too much time playing Fortnite.
