Even though Sony sells a record number of PlayStation 5 consoles every year, PlayStation 4’s lifespan is nearing its end. However, that did not stop the players from buying and enjoying new games from the PlayStation store.

The company published the top 20 most-sold games for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in the US/Canada and Europe. In addition, they have also released the top ten most downloaded games for PlayStation VR, PlayStation VR2, and Free-to-play games in both regions.
