PlayStation Store recently released a list of the most downloaded PS4 and PS5 Games for December 2022.
The PlayStation Store has just shared the names of the most downloaded games on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 for December 2022. Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and FIFA 23 are the two titles that have emerged as the most downloaded games on last-gen and next-gen consoles.
Growing Popularity of PS5
With time, PlayStation 5 has become more and more accessible and that has played an important role in a larger number of games being available on it. Apart from registering high gaming downloads, PlayStation has also witnessed a jump in its sales. This, in a way, is indicative of the fact that the player base for PS gaming has expanded significantly in the last few months.
Digital game downloads offer a great amount of convenience to gamers and that is one of the reasons behind them getting popular at a lightning pace. When players hear about a new game that sounds exciting, they can download it and start playing it instantly. They don’t have to wait or arrange their schedule to visit a retail store and buy a physical copy of the game from there.
For the longest time, many believed that certain gaming genres, like board games, will never be available in a digital format. The digitization of some of the most popular board games like Catan has proved this theory wrong and made people realize that as time passes by, no game will be available exclusively in a physical format.
