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.”
