Indie games are on the rise, more and more with each month. DrinkBox Studio’s Guacamelee! beat out several heavy hitting AAA games for top of the PS3 and PSN sales figures list over the course of April.

Granted, AAA games still sell better through physical releases, and Guacamelee! had no other outlet, but it’s still inspiring to see audiences reacting positively to solid indie releases.

The PlayStation 3 wasn’t the only place Guacamelee! saw success. It also topped Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune’s latest game, Soul Sacrifice, for top spot on the PlayStation Vita list, making it just as big of a portable hit as it is a console hit.
We are huge fans of Guacamelee! and you can read our thoughts on it here. Check out the lists below to see what else is hot on the PlayStation Network these days.
