Sony has posted its digital download numbers for the month of November through its PlayStation Blog, and a surprising victor has emerged on the PlayStation 4 front.

Activision’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has taken the number one spot in sales on the PlayStation 4, barely beating out Battlefield 1 and newcomer Final Fantasy XV, which came up second and third, respectively. The list also included popular mainstays like Grand Theft Auto V and Overwatch: Origins Edition, and Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs 2 found a pretty good place on the list as well. Check out the top ten below. (Oddly enough, though, there’s no sign of Titanfall 2.)

  2. Battlefield 1
  3. Final Fantasy XV
  4. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition
  5. Star Wars Battlefront
  6. Grand Theft Auto V
  7. Watch Dogs 2
  8. Overwatch: Origins Edition
  9. FIFA 17
  10. Far Cry Primal

Meanwhile, on the PlayStation 3 front, Electronic Arts’ competitive racing game Need For Speed: Most Wanted took the top position, while Dragon Ball Xenoverse took the second place spot, and Jak and Daxter Collection took a healthy third. The only real newcomer to the list was FIFA 17, which placed in sixth; and Pro Evolution Soccer 2017, which found a ninth place spot. The full top ten is below:

  1. Need For Speed: Most Wanted
  2. Dragon Ball Xenoverse

The company also listed its top ten PlayStation VR games, with a surprising first place winner there as well: Job Simulator VR. Other games like Eagle Flight and Batman: Arkham VR fared nicely as well. The full top ten is below:

  1. Job Simulator
