GTA V is Most Downloaded PS4 Game Four Years After Release

Rockstar's mega hit just keeps getting bigger.

by Kyle Hanson


Grand Theft Auto V was the most bought and downloaded game from the PlayStation Store last month on PS4. Taking the top honors in Sony’s monthly sales chart is always a good sign, but for GTA V it’s something pretty crazy. The game released four years ago for the console, though it had already been available on PS3 for a year before that. It’s a sign of just how huge a success GTA V has been, and continues to be, though there are of course some extenuating circumstances.

GTA V is still at a discounted price on PS4, currently available for $19.79 instead of the typical $29.99 price. That’s probably what gave the game a push to the top of the list, but this long after release sales shouldn’t drive this many sales. A four year old game usually has already sold to the vast majority of the people who will play it during its lifetime, but with GTA V it seems like the audience just continues to grow and grow.

Of course, there were other games available for the month of June 2018 as well, with FIFA 18 and God of War rounding out the top three on PS4. Here’s the rest of that list and the top PSVR downloads…
