Despite having only five days to achieve greatness during January, Monster Hunter: World took the top spot as the most downloaded PlayStation Store title for the month. Is it any surprise, though? Capcom’s hit managed to score 5 million sales within the first three days alone, and just this morning ballooned to 6 million to make it the fastest ever Capcom game to reach that mark. New release Dragon Ball FighterZ took the second place slot, and Grand Theft Auto V stayed in the top ten, coming in at number six. January’s Dissidia Final Fantasy NT didn’t make the charts. Take a look at the top 20 most downloaded games from the PlayStation Store below.

The PlayStation Blog also highlighted the most downloaded PSVR games in January. While Supermassive’s The Inpatient managed to crack into the top 10, it was still beaten out of the top spots by the likes of Job Simulator, Accounting+, and Batman: Arkham VR. When looking at PS4 themes for the month, the Monster Hunter: World dynamic theme was the most downloaded, followed by Dissidia Final Fantasy NT and Bioshock: The Collection themes in the top five.

Note that these rankings are purely by download numbers and do not equate to revenue.
