Playstation Network Revenue For August Estimated at $5.7 million

August was a big month for PSN with sales up some 20% from July. One of the month’s biggest hits were the game adaption of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. It sold 117,000 units in August generating $1.2 million USD. The PSN version of the game sold nearly 4x more than it’s XBLA counterpart which moved 38,000 units. The PSN exclusive Joe Danger also continues to rake in money for Hello Games as it sold an additional 14k units.

PlayStation Network proved strong in August, especially for marquee title Scott Pilgrim,”said Benjamin Schlichter, Director of Research & Analysis at FADE. “This title was one of the few instances where a game based on a movie was better received than the movie itself.”

The top 5 PlayStation Network titles for August 2010, by revenue, include Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (Ubisoft) – 117,000 units ($9.99), Castle Crashers (The Behemoth) – 27,000 units ($14.99), Shank (Klei Entertainment) 23,000 units ($14.99), ZEN Pinball (Zen Studios) 27,000 units ($9.99) and Joe Danger (Hello Games) 14,000 units ($14.99).

    Maybe with the low sales of Castle Crashers they’ll drop the price to $9.99 where it belongs. If it does, I’ll buy it a second time 🙂

    Castle Crashers did okay but not to all that great. Scotty did banging though.

    well hopefully with this new rating system and this information about scott pilgrim they’ll figure out what PSN games to release more of

    but seriously we all know everybody loved Scott pilgrim for the pixels and the chiptunes 😉

    wow at those sales numbers. Scott Pilgrim sold 4x as much on PSN as on XBL? I wouldn’t have thought that.

    What’s slightly disingenuous about these figures is that Zen Pinball is currently free to PS+ members, which is the only way I can account for those “sales,” given that the game was released almost a year and a half ago (May 14, 2009), and the last table DLC, “Mars,” was released July 27, 2010.
