This week's episode of Pulse (available on the PlayStation Store) revealed the top 10 games and movies downloaded off the PlayStation Store for January 2009:
  1. Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
  2. Mortal Kombat II
  3. Magic Ball
  4. Cuboid
  5. JEOPARDY!
  6. Linger in Shadows
  7. Crash Commando
  8. PAIN
  9. LUMINES Supernova
  10. High Velocity Bowling
It appears fighting games are what PS3 players want. The PSN versions of the classic 2D fighters, Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat II take the top spots this month. We're glad to see that both Magic Ball and Cuboid are doing well -- these indie developers went exclusively to the PlayStation Network, and their casual games are doing quite well.
Top 10 movie downloads for January 2009:
  1. Max Payne (Unrated)
  2. Babylon AD (Uncut)
  3. Mirrors (Unrated)
  4. Step Brothers
  5. Resident Evil: Degeneration
  6. Get Smart
  7. Pride and Glory
  8. My Best Friend's Girl (Unrated)
  9. Dead Space: Downfall
  10. The Women
The PlayStation video service seems to have found its niche, with video game movies taking up 3 of the top 10 movies in January. Perhaps you feel less guilty watching a bad movie on the PlayStation Store than in a theater? Maybe that'll explain why Max Payne takes the top spot.
