Comparison chart fans can rejoice! Sony has released its annual list of top downloads from PlayStation Store, revealing exactly what gamers in the US, Canada and Europe have dropped onto their PS4 and PlayStation 5 hard drives in 2022.

Unsurprisingly, FIFA once again dominated in Europe, with FIFA 23 securing pole position on both consoles. However, big balls traded for big guns in the US and Canada as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 took the lead on both platforms.

Unsurprisingly, God of War Ragnarök was also a big winner on PlayStation 5, being the 3rd biggest download of 2022 in Europe (after Modern Warfare 2) and the 2nd biggest download in the US/Canada. However, it was way down the PS4 list, ranking 9th in the US/Canada and 15th in Europe.
