Destiny 2 fans may be up in arms about the game's supposedly microtransaction-oriented endgame, but that didn't stop them shelling out for the Curse of Osiris expansion in December and propelling it to the top of the download charts on PlayStation 4 in the process.
According to Sony's PlayStation Store download charts for December, Curse of Osiris was the top add-on download, followed by the Destiny 2 expansion pass, which is essentially the same thing. To be fair, it wasn't up against a lot of brand new competition, but still.
