Top Ten PSN Titles In The US

The US PlayStation Blog has put up the last edition of PULSE for this year, wherein they have revealed the most downloaded games in the US in ’09:

  1. Battlefield 1943
  2. Fat Princess
  3. Flower
  4. Marvel Vs. Capcom 2
  5. Mortal Kombat II
  6. TMNT: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled
  7. Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
  8. Ratchet and Clank Future: Quest for Booty
  9. Worms
  10. Wheel of Fortune

It’s not surprising that 1943 is at the top, with the massive amounts of hype it generated in the Summer, and with only a few others games to compete with it. Same for Fat Princess. Very nice to see Flower take third place, it certainly deserves it, and I’m sure it will encourage other independent developers out there to try bringing their ideas to the PSN. MvC2 was long-awaited by fans, so no shock there. Mortal Kombat II, now that was definitely unexpected. The game released on the store all the way back in 2007, so it’s simply staggering that 2 years later, it’s still selling strong. The remaining five all clearly sold well since they’re recognised franchises among the American people. It truly is a shame that some of the better PSN games this year didn’t make it , such as the adorable Critter Crunch, the brilliant Braid, the retro-themed Shatter or the realistic Zen Pinball, to name a few. It just goes to show how far the PlayStation Network has gone in terms of providing excellent, pure-quality games. 2010 is going to be a cracker…
