Sony probably isn’t going to reveal sales for its PlayStation VR headset for a while yet, but it did reveal the best-selling VR games PlayStation Store.

The platform holder usually puts out a list of the top 10 and 20 best-selling games across a number of different categories in both the U.S. and Eruope each month. The lists for October hit this week, and they’re the first to include a section for PS VR. Note that this will have been measured over a shorter period than a month; PS VR arrived on October 13.

These lists don’t reveal specific sales numbers, and they don’t include retail sales, just those made through its digital storefront. It’s also important to remember that some games aren’t available at retail, which may boost the number of people that bought them digitally.

In the US, Owlchemy Labs’ port of its popular HTC Vive game, Job Simulator, was the bestselling app. That’s interesting to note as Job Simulator requires two PlayStation Move controllers, which only came in a bundle with PS VR or had to be bought separately (unless you already owned them). The same goes for Batman: Arkham VR, another digital-only game that took 2nd in the US and 1st in the EU. That suggests that a lot of PS VR owners have two Move controllers.
