Now that 2016 is over, Sony have shared the list of the best performing games on the PSN Store on PS3, PS4, and PS Vita. And as it turns out, it was an eventful year, with perennial chart toppers dominating on the consoles, and a surprising first place winner on the Vita.

On PS4, the chart topper for the year was Rocket League, which makes sense- Psyonix’s game has been a veritable sensation, and it’s not surprising to see more people wanting in on it even almost two years from its initial release. On the PS3, Minecraft similarly rules the roost. But it’s on the PS Vita that we get a surprise, with last year’s Digimon Cyber Sleuth  topping the chart. Digimon was a pretty good riff on the Pokemon formula, so it’s good to see it do well.

You can check out the full charts for yourself below. Remember, these are only for North America, not worldwide.

  • Luke Skywalker

    uncharted sold some 8+million copies and still ended up at #18….even need for speed came out way above it?
    man, then top 3 games must’ve sold a shiiit ton. and minecraft, how the heck is minecraft still selling so well?

    • Starman

      Sorry but UC4 didn’t sell that many ..8 mil shipped , but a bunch still lingering around … Sony claims numbers on a technicality amount sold to retail stores , not like the old days when they gave them a certain amount and then got a percentage off of it .. Times have changed , this is why Walmart , Target and other stores alike can sell at a cheaper price than the companies that develop them…
      So yeah , those are sold , but to retailers , not consumers… look it up for yourself. FACTS !

  • STRIKE

    Multiplayer games sold more than single player games? I rest my case.
