Sony has revealed a list of the most downloaded games from the PlayStation Store for Europe and North America. The lists include PS3, PS4, Vita and PS1 games as well as add-ons for the PS3 and PS4. Most of the titles are probably what you’d expect, but most notably, FIFA 16, Madden 16 and Rocket League managed to crack the top 15.
As for the top? Call of Duty: Black Ops III dominated the charts for both the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation 4, though while it managed to achieve the number one spot for the PS4, it came in second after Minecraft on the PS3.
Minecraft is still doing well on every single console it sees release on, even years later. Interestingly though. the PlayStation 3 edition of Minecraft has been out since 2013, with a physical edition released in 2014. That’s staying power! The PlayStation 4 version of the game did well too, nabbing a spot at number 3 on the PS4 list. That version is a bit more recent, but still released in 2014. Wow.
The rest of the results probably won’t come as much of a surprise. Your favorite AAA games are on the board, from Grand Theft Auto V to Bloodborne, which only surprisingly sits at number 10.
Pretty interesting when you consider just how much hype there was around the game’s release and the DLC released in November. Maybe people just prefer the physical edition of that one! Although, tellingly, the game’s first, last, and only DLC The Old Hunters didn’t even crack the top 10 for DLC in 2015. Ouch! Maybe that has something to do with the fact that it was only released in late November.
The top DLC was Destiny with The Taken King, pulling in at number one. Sword Art Online -Hollow Fragment-, meanwhile, was able to take the number one slot for the Vita. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas proved its staying power by earning number one in the PS Classics category. That’s the rundown.
