It's a tale of two remakes in Sony's list of most downloaded PlayStation games of 2020. On the PlayStation 4 side, Final Fantasy VII Remake dominated the top 10 in Japan, while the Demon's Souls remake did the same on the list of most downloaded PlayStation 5 games. 


Here's how the top 10 PS4 game downloads ranked in Japan:


1. Final Fantasy VII Remake

2. Ghost of Tsushima

3. Dead by Daylight

4. Minecraft

5. eFootball Winning Eleven 2021 Season Update

6. Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

7. Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Maxi Boost ON

PlayStation also ranked top VR games, with Beat Saber in the number one spot, as well as Free-to-Play games, which saw Apex Legends as champion. 


Neither remake made quite the splash on the North American and European lists. In the US and Canada, Final Fantasy VII Remake only ranked 9th for PS4 downloads, and it didn't even make the top 10 in Europe. FFVII Remake is the only Japanese game on the North American list, which has Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War at the top. 


Demon's Souls ranked in fifth place on both the NA and EU top 10 for PS5 downloads.
