Skyrim VR Tops November PSVR Sales Charts, Final Fantasy Stumbles

by Jamie Feltham • December 7th, 2017

Surprising absolutely no one, Skyrim VR was the top-selling game on the PlayStation Store in November.

Bethesda’s first VR port, which hit Sony’s headset on November 17th, topped both the US and EU charts for the last month. We don’t know how many units the game sold overall, but considering the game was also released physically and appeared to do quite well at retail, too, it’s an impressive fact. Skyrim VR offers the entire original role-playing game (RPG) to play inside PSVR with realistic weapon handling via PlayStation Move. We’re big fans of the VR port (and we’re still playing it, too).

In less positive news, it doesn’t look like Square Enix’s debut Final Fantasy VR experience made much of an impression. Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV, a fishing-based spin-off of the epic Japanese RPG that we were also quite fond of, debuted in ninth place on the US charts and failed to find a spot in the top ten on the EU chart. The game released a few days after Skyrim, which could well have hurt sales, but it’s still surprising to see such a household name fail to grab the attention of such a dedicated community.

Somewhat surprisingly, Doom VFR also debuted on the US list, despite releasing on December 1st. Still, it surpassed Monster of the Deep, coming in at number seven. The rest of the list is filled with the usual suspects; Batman: Arkham VR ranks on both, as does Superhot VR and Job Simulator.

We’d expect to see Doom make a much larger impact on December’s list with more time on sale.
