Sony have posted their PlayStation Store charts for PlayStation 4, PSVR, free-to-play and PS Vita games and interestingly enough, H1Z1 has been downloaded more times than Fortnite: Battle Royale. GTA V wins on the PS4 side though.

Now this doesn't mean it's actually played more than Epic Megagames' mega game - it's just that it's seen more downloads in June 2018. First things first though - the PlayStation 4 creme of the crop chart.

Grand Theft Auto V leads the pack, followed by FIFA 18 and God of War. I've found these three particularly interesting, seeing as how they haven't left UK physical sales charts for a while now, with Monday's chart being just one example.

The Last of Us Remastered edged David Cage's Detroit: Become Human, most likely on the wings of the sequel's hype over the course of this year's E3. Everybody's darling Aloy is eighth and we're getting used to her never leaving as well.

As for free-to-play, after H1Z1 and Fortnite comes Fallout Shelter, which has turned into one of the most popular instalments in the Fallout franchise. Who would've thought promotional gimmick would've grown into a seriously addictive sim game. Oh yeah, the fans did. 

Hi-Rez Studios' Paladins are doing fairly well, just like Warframe, whose We All Lift Together I cannot get out of my head for the life of me. Not that I'd want to either, it's actually quite soothing and I find myself wanting more.

Stardew Valley is stomping over the competition on PS Vita, which is really no surprise, considering that the game is one of the most delightful gaming experiences to be found, regardless of the platform of choice. In fact, considering the form factor, Vita may as well be its spiritual home and we fully see the appeal that brought it to number one.

Much like in our Monday's charts, don't try to win arguments with these, since Sony rarely reveal numbers - it's more of an indicator of gamers' habits that month. And we all know how wildly those may vary.
