    Last year, Rocket League was # 3 and The Show was # 4 on the April PSN Top Downloads list. This year, The Show is at # 5 and Rocket League is at # 6 for April. Pretty good showing for MLB, considering Mass Effect — which released a week before The Show in March — is down at # 15. And great for RL, which is becoming the GTA V ( # 2 for April, which is insane) of sports video games.

    And speaking of Rocket League, it’s also crazy to see it outselling FIFA in the U.K. Weekly sales chart. Wonder what EA thinks about that, being outsold this week by Rocket League in FIFA’s home turf (the U.K.)?
