Well look at that. Just as Beat Saber claimed its six-month milestone at the top of the PlayStation Store PSVR Charts, it’s been dethroned by not one but three games.
Beat Saber was the fourth-best selling PSVR game on the Store in the US in May. Beating it (sorry), was Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted in first place and Blood & Truth in second. Ever-popular VR shooter, Superhot VR, came in third.
Freddy’s is a VR horror game based upon a best-selling series of games that’s become something of a streamer hit. Blood & Truth, meanwhile, is a massive, polished first-person shooter (FPS) developed by Sony’s London Studio. Superhot also just enjoyed a highly successful launch on Oculus Quest, which may have in turn boosted PSVR sales.
Despite their popularity, we weren’t expecting either game to beat Beat Saber (again, sorry) in the charts. But both of them at once? When there’s there physical edition of Blood & Truth too? That’s really surprising. Another big PSVR release, Everybody’s Golf, swung in at six.
Beat Saber was again surpassed in the EU charts, but only by Blood & Truth alone. Freddy’s came in a respectable third. The rest of both lists are populated by the usual suspects. Sadly there’s no sign of May’s other big PSVR release, Trover Saves The Universe. That said, the game launched on the very last day of May, so this doesn’t spell doom.
June brings a handful of exciting new PSVR titles, including Mini Mech Mayhem on June 18. The PSVR version of the excellent Vacation Simulator hits on the same day and is sure to shake up the charts even more.
