PlayStation Network Top Sellers
Last month was a big one for PlayStation Network games! Not only did we see a ton of great new downloadable PS3 titles, but the launch of PS Vita saw PSN flooded with new digital offerings. Starting this month, we’re introducing a new list to show what games topped the digital PS Vita charts.

On PS3, our hats are off to The Simpsons Arcade Game for debuting at the top spot! This long-awaited PS3 port of the coin-op co-op classic delivered nostalgic beat em’ up action peppered with obscure Simpsons references. In PS Vita’s world, Sony’s own Santa Monica Studio delivered a bonafide hit with the charming Escape Plan. And in the rest of the charts, Final Fantasy dominated PS3 Add-Ons, PS one Classics, and PSP categories…just in time for this week’s Spring Fever Final Fantasy franchise sale!

What games did you pick up in February? Did the PS Vita impact your PS3 playtime? What games do you think will top the charts in March? Share your thoughts and we’ll see you next month to break down the March PSN Top Sellers!

Morgan, can you clarify how free PSN+ downloads count towards the monthly sales charts?

    Free Plus downloads do not factor in to sales charts on these lists. So The Simpsons Arcade hit the top spot based off of regular PSN downloads alone.
