Beat Saber, VR’s favorite block-slashing rhythm game, came to PlayStation VR 2 well past the headset’s February 2023 launch, coming to Sony’s latest VR headset in late May. And while Beat Saber topped the May charts within only one week of being available on PSVR 2, it seems the long-standing VR favorite is showing no signs of stopping.

In PlayStation’s June top downloads list, Beat Saber has made out as the top PSVR 2 download again. Here’s the full list, showing the charts across the US/Canada, Europe, and Japan.

Notably, PlayStation’s charts are based on PS Store purchases only, which means game upgrades or games bundled with hardware are not included. Beat Saber is one of those in a limited pool of games that offers a free PSVR 2 upgrade from the original PSVR version, so it seems new PSVR 2 users are jumping into the block-slashing action organically.

It’s no surprise Beat Saber has fared well on PSVR 2 for new players though, as by now the game is fairly synonymous as a great beginner’s title thanks to its ‘easy to play, hard to master’ gameplay in addition to not being nearly as involved as some VR games, many of which require some form of artificial locomotion.

Not only that, Meta-owned studio Beat Games has also wrangled a ton of music deals since the game’s 2018 launch to bring an extensive library of paid DLC to the game. This includes everything from legacy classics such as Queen, Kiss, and Lynyrd Skynyrd to current pop hits like The Weekend, Lizzo, Lady Gaga, Billie Eilish, and BTS to name a few.

With such a sustained performance, it’s likely Beat Saber will continue its reign on PSVR 2 for months to come.

    Well, it’s the best PSVR2 has to offer.
    Even YouTubers got bored of Sony. Videos went from “game changer” to “we need to talk about this” lmao

  • I wonder if Horizon is not there because people are getting it bundled, or in the end this is not the type of game that PSVR 2 users are looking for

    • ApocalypseShadow

      Per the article besides being known since PSVR, If games are hybrid like GT7 and RE8 or bundled or physical, they are not included.

      So, basically PS Store digital purchases only. It’s wack because it doesn’t take into account all purchases. Or other games might hit the list monthly.

      Kind of said though that the number one game on multiple headsets is one big micro transaction. I’d be surprised if Beat Games makes anything else.

    With POP1 now F2P and Meta and SONY willing to collaborate with Meta (see Ghost Busters), perhaps they’ll bring POP1 to PSVR2. Could be another great experience brought to you by Meta on the PSVR2 platform

    It’s the only vr game I regularly go back to, it’s an excellent workout. Gotta be careful though with some of the wackier custom tracks, I’ve injured myself a few times now…

    That’s because it’s a simple game. It’s a great starter game and it doesn’t have a whole lot of moving things in the background to make you sick or any level of teleporting or joystick movement. This makes it easy for people to pick up and play. It’s boring as hell to me… but I’ve been playing VR for years and Beat Saber just is all about flapping your arms a lot and that’s about it. Nothing complex or amazing about that. It also doesn’t take much skill or effort to play. The simplest format for the simplest people.
