Counter Strike: GO tops US PSN sales in August

Valve leads the way ahead of The Walking Dead and Madden

Counter Strike: Global Offensive deservedly topped the US PlayStation Store sales charts in August.


CS:GO marks a significant update to the series, with both new maps and updated versions of the old favourites, new modes and a radically-improved visual upgrade.

Following closely behind was Telltale's brilliant The Walking Dead series, which placed second for Episode 3: Long Road Ahead.

Madden NFL 13, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD and Sound Shapes rounded out the top-five.
