Batman: Arkham VR was the best-selling digital PSVR game in October

The Caped Crusader has emerged as the most popular of the PlayStation VR’s launch line-up on PSN.

Sony says that Batman: Arkham VR was the best-selling digital PlayStation VR title in October. It looks like the combination of a strong IP, a good heritage in the Arkham games and a lower price than some of its competitors won out.

Indeed, higher price outings such as RIGS and Battlezone charted far lower.

Arkham VR’s sales weren’t enough to propel it into the overall PS4 Top Ten, however, with the game debuting in 13th place, behind the series’ last entry Batman: Arkham Knight. The only other VR title to make it into the Top 20 was PlayStation VR Worlds in 19th.
