PSN’s most downloaded games for September 2022 revealed: NBA 2K23 and FIFA 23 are on top

Like every month, Sony has announced the most downloaded games on PlayStation Store for September 2022. The lists reveal the most popular PS4, PS5, PS VR and free-to-play games of the month for North America and the United States. Europe, and there aren’t many surprises in store this month.

Starting with PS5 games, NBA 2K23 was the most downloaded game on PSN in September in North America, while FIFA 23 was the best game in Europe (not surprising given how popular soccer is in that region). Another new September release, The Last of Us Part 1, ranked third in both regions.

For free-to-play games covering PS5 and PS4 combined, Fortnite was the most downloaded game in the US and Canada, while Rumbleverse was the most popular free-to-play game in Europe.
