Study: PSN enjoys bumper sales month

But it's a long way behind XBLA.

PlayStation Network revenues were up an impressive 20 per cent for the month of August, according to a recent study.

VG247 report that figures compiled by Forecasting & Analyzing Digital Entertainment (FADE) indicate the service netted $5.7 million in August.

Scott Pilgrim vs The World led the way with 117,000 downloads, followed by Castle Crashers with 27,000 and Shank with 23,000. ZEN Pinball and Joe Danger completed the top five.

Scott Pilgrim's timed exclusivity deal worked wonders for Sony. Ubisoft's movie tie-in only managed 38,000 downloads when it later launched on Xbox 360.

Sony's figures are a long way off matching stats for Xbox Live Arcade however. Earlier this week FADE claimed that Microsoft's service brought in $17.5 million over the same period.
