Destiny and Minecraft were the best-selling games on PlayStation Store in 2014

Sony has revealed which games and DLC on the PlayStation Store were big hits last year, with Destiny and Minecraft topping the rankings.

Posted on the US PlayStation Blog, the charts show that Activision’s sci-fi shooter Destiny attracted the most downloads on PS4, with ever-popular block-building hit Minecraft the most popular digital purchase on PS3.

While the PS4 Top Ten was dominated by blockbusters – Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, The Last of Us Remastered and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor among them – the PS3 rankings saw the addition of more niche titles, including post-apocalyptic animal simulation oddity Tokyo Jungle, which outsold games including Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and South Park: The Stick of Truth.

Destiny recreated its success over in the Add-On charts, with the title’s Expansion Pass taking the Number One spot for PS4. Its first full expansion, The Dark Below, placed fourth. Extra content for Battlefield and Call of Duty rounded out the Top Five.

Meanwhile, on PS3, past iterations in the Call of Duty series filled the rankings, with packs for 2012’s Black Ops II and 2013’s Ghosts occupying all places bar one. Story-driven expansion Left Behind for The Last of Us plugged the gap at number three.

Shrinking down to the Vita handheld, the chart appears to reveal the console’s strength as a platform for more niche titles. Japanese RPG Sword Art Online -Hollow Fragment- was the top-selling game for the whole of 2014, placing ahead of the portable version of Minecraft.

The PlayStation Store also plays host to a collection of Sony’s past hits, in the form of PlayStation and PS2 ‘Classics’.

In a year ripe with Grand Theft Auto V news, it is perhaps no surprise that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was the most popular throwback title. Rockstar’s 2004 crime opus was followed by a trilogy of past Naughty Dog titles – Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2 and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped.

The ever-popular epic RPGFinal Fantasy VII placed ninth, with a remastered version of the game announced for PS4 at Sony’s PlayStation Experience event.
