Sony has revealed the top performing games and DLC content on the US and European PlayStation Store for January, with Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition once again ruling the roost as far as PS3 titles are concerned. New PS4 release Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition charted far higher in North America than it did in Europe but this could be due to the US version launching on January 28th – three days before the PAL release.

The Call of Duty series cleaned up in the Add-ons category while the Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy franchises dominated the PSP and PlayStation Classics charts on both sides of the Atlantic.

It’s odd not to see Media Molecule’s charming PS Vita exclusive Tearaway on this list since it’s one of the most critically acclaimed titles released for the handheld so far. Perhaps some gamers take one look at its papercraft-inspired visuals and immediately write it off as being for kids.

Here are each territory’s respective charts:
