Indie game Guacamelee! beats Tomb Raider on April PSN charts
Sprinkled among the 20 best-selling PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Network games from last month are a few indie games — including one that dominated the charts completely.
Guacamelee! from DrinkBox Studios beat out big-budget titles like Tomb Raider (at No. 2), Injustice: Gods Among Us (at No. 8), BioShock Infinite (at No. 9), and Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen (at No. 12), according to the PlayStation Blog.
It's worth noting that these are downloads. Many gamers buy full titles in stores, and those purchases weren't counted — while games like Guacamelee! can only be redeemed through PSN. But the fact that an indie game surpassed some of spring's hottest games is impressive, even on a digital platform only.
Guacamelee! was also the top downloaded PlayStation Vita title.
