    The PlayStation Store roundups going over April 2020 sales for the United States and Europe have arrived, and at least in one region, Cloud, Aerith, Tifa, and Barret conquered all. In the United States, the Final Fantasy VII Remake PlayStation Store sales couldn’t be beat. It was the most downloaded game in the region.

    However, some older titles kept the crew from reaching their full potential in Europe. The European PlayStation Blog noted that Final Fantasy VII Remake PlayStation Store downloads only secured the game a fourth place slot. In that region, Grand Theft Auto V came in first, followed by FIFA 20 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

    To be fair, the top ten in both regions aren’t all that dissimilar. Resident Evil 3 ended up finding a place for itself in both areas, and in each case it and Final Fantasy VII Remake were the only “new” titles to find a foothold.

    Here’s the full list of the top 10 PlayStation 4 downloads at the PlayStation Store in the United States in April 2020.

    1. Final Fantasy VII Remake
    2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
    3. NBA 2K20
    4. Grand Theft Auto V
    5. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered
    6. Resident Evil 3
    7. Minecraft
    8. FIFA 20
    9. Monopoly Plus
    10. Marvel’s Spider-Man

    And here are the April 2020 top ten PlayStation Store downloads for Europe.

    1. Grand Theft Auto V
    2. FIFA 20
    3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
    4. Final Fantasy VIi Remake
    5. NBA 2K20
    6. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered
    7. UFC 3
    8. Minecraft
    9. Marvel’s Spider-Man
    10. Resident Evil 3

    As a reminder, Final Fantasy VII Remake passed 3.5 million in sales within three days after launching.

    Final Fantasy VII Remake, the fifth part of the Final Fantasy VII compilation, is available for the PlayStation 4, though the exclusivity period will end in April 2021. Its second part is still in the “conceptual planning stage.”
