PS VR2 Top Downloads for August

On the PS VR2 front, Firewall Ultra was the most downloaded game for both the US/Canada and Europe. I opted to buy Crossfire: Sierra Squad over Firewall after reading some, not too favourable impressions on Reddit. Crossfire: Sierra Squad was the fourth most downloaded PS VR2 game in both the US/Canada and Europe.

Pavlov, which is still arguably the best PS VR2 shooter out there was the second most downloaded PS VR2 game in Europe and third most downloaded game in the US and Canada.
