Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Minecraft and Tearaway end the year on top of the December Top 20
Posted on January 12, 2014 by

2013 was a really wild ride for video games. From reboots and remakes to indie love and next gen, the PlayStation brand saw a variety of games reach their platforms. December was a strong month for all platforms (PS3, PS4, Vita) and continues November's trend of a diverse offering of games for each.

Just like November Ghosts and Battlefield 4 rule the top of the charts for the PS4, only with a minor difference. In the case of Ghost, most of the CoD community wanted to get a jumpstart and bought the PS3 version of the game and bought the digital upgrade for the PS4. With Battlefield 4, couch commanders decided that it would be better to just buy the retail copy of the game and save their money for DLC:
