This weekend Sony revealed the sales charts for PSN in February. Both PS4 and PS3 sales were topped by games that weren't new releases.

Open-world zombie game and January release Dying Light managed to beat out February debuts Dragon Ball Xenoverse, Evolve and The Order: 1886. I wouldn't read too far into that win, though. Dying Light came out on January 27th so the bulk of its sales thus far took place in February. I'd imagine that the strong reviews for the game resulted in strong sales well after its launch date, toio.

On the PS3 side of things, the best-performing new release was the remake of Resident Evil, which actually set PSN records. In spite of that strong launch, though, it was actually edged out by the end of the month by Minecraft. Minecraft has been on PS3 over a year now but still manages to pull in an impressive amount of new players each month.

The DLC charts were slanted toward big fall releases like Destiny and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. That makes sense, I suppose; the more people own a game, the greater the sales for their DLC. Also, both games are old enough at this point that players are looking for DLC to continue their experience.
