Surprisingly or unsurprisingly, February 2013’s PlayStation Network figures showed Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim dominated the top PlayStation 3 DLC charts. The rankings in question see Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Revolution in first place followed by Skyrim Dragonborn.
The next three spots were taken by the Black Ops 2 Season Pass, Skyrim Hearthfire and then Dawnguard. The conditions for these sales aren’t hard to guess: Black Ops Revolution was delayed for the PS3 and released alongside pretty much all the other DLC packs this past February.
Couple that with discounts on the Skyrim’s DLC, which also saw crucial packs being delayed, and also that both games are fairly hot properties, and voila. Making it rain on the PlayStation 3.
In fact, Black Ops 2 ranks number 4 on the Top 20 PS3 and PSN Games list, with thatgamecompany’s Journey holding steady. Nobody ever said minting money was easy.
