PUBG Was the Most Downloaded PS4 Game of December 2018

PUBG Finds Success on PS4

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) topped the PlayStation Store’s charts as the most downloaded game of December 2018, according to an official Wednesday announcement.


Here’s the rest of the chart:

  1. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
  2. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
  3. Grand Theft Auto V
  4. Red Dead Redemption 2
  5. Battlefield V
  6. FIFA 19
  7. Mortal Kombat XL
  8. Marvel’s Spider-Man
  9. NBA 2K19
  10. Madden NFL 19

This is somewhat surprising considering how lukewarm the critical reception was for PUBG on PS4. The port has a rating of 73 out of 100 on Metacritic and our review criticized it for being “a game that hasn’t changed an iota from the initial launch.”

“With so much competition, it’s very disappointing to find that PUBG is still buggy, looks horrible, and isn’t trying to keep up with the slew of contenders,” our reviewer wrote.

“In a time where Battle Royale is all the craze, raking in all that money and not bothering to try to keep up with your competition seems like a stupid idea,” the reviewer also wrote. “Considering PUBG creators sued Epic Games over [Fortnite’s alleged plagiarism], it becomes pretty apparent that the suit wasn’t over losing money, but out of spite that someone else was making a better version of your game.”
