March’s PlayStation Store Charts are in, and Polyarc’s Moss continues to impress.
Whereas the PSVR platformer came in strong in February’s charts after just a few days on sale, the March results see Quill climb to the top of both the US and EU lists. We guess the game’s positive reception helped carry it through post-launch sales and we couldn’t be happier to see it doing well.
Another big March release, Bravo Team, also seems to have performed respectably despite a lukewarm reception. Supermassive Games’ PlayStation Aim-enabled shooter came in at 8 on the US list and all the way up to 2 on the EU list. Don’t forget March saw the announcement of a price cut for PSVR, which may explain why launch window games like PlayStation VR Worlds and Job Simulator have performed so well this month.
Perhaps more notable, though are some of the absences on this month’s list. Polished dinosaur spin-off Ark Park, which we weren’t too keen on, failed to chart, as did the much better The American Dream. Neither game saw a physical release meaning its developers were entirely dependent on digital sales. Not appearing in the top 10 doesn’t necessarily mean they tanked, but it’s not a great sign, either. Wipeout: Omega Collection isn’t there, either, but that’s a year-old game with physical discs too, so it’s not too surprising.
April sees a handful of big releases for PSVR, including the long-awaited port of Rick and Morty: Virtual-Rickality in just a few day’s time.
