UK Sales Charts: PS4 Hardware Promotions Spur Software Sales

Like hot cakes

Sony's proving a particularly fierce competitor in the UK, as it refuses to let Microsoft get a foothold. You may have seen our story last week on the PlayStation 4's success in Britain, but the Japanese giant's not resting on its laurels. It launched a series of new bundles over the weekend, which spurred PlayStation software up the...

UK Sales Charts: Rory McIlroy on Target as Top Ten Stagnates

Same old story

We have officially hit that part of the summer where there's literally nothing to say about the UK sales charts. EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour is the newest title, so naturally that's sitting on top – but the remainder of the Top Ten paints a frighteningly familiar picture. LEGO Jurassic World, Batman: Arkham Knight, F1 2015,...

UK Sales Charts: Rory McIlroy Putts Kratos' Nose Out of Joint

On par

Golfing giant Rory McIlroy has clubbed Kratos square in the jaw, as EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour teed off at the top of the UK sales charts this week. God of War III Remastered did reasonably well on a limited marketing budget, scaling the best sellers list all the way into ninth – but rest assured that the Ghost of Sparta will not be...

UK Sales Charts: F1 2015 Takes Pole Position on PS4

Vroom

F1 2015 had enough fuel in its tank to overtake Batman: Arkham Knight this week, as the Codemasters developed racer has soared to the summit of the UK sales charts. The first PlayStation 4 adaptation of the iconic motorsport improved upon the sales of its previous gen predecessor by a whopping 367 per cent – though it's worth noting that...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS Vita and Persona 4 Dancing All Night Take a Tumble

Murder on the dance floor

After a brief stint at the top, the Vita's fallen down the Japanese charts along with heavy hitting exclusive Persona 4 Dancing All Night. Sony's handheld device sold through just 14,067 units last week, while the aforementioned dance-'em-up went from selling 94,036 copies in its first week to 13,028 in its second -...

UK Sales Charts: Batman: Arkham Knight Grapples Top Spot

No Joker

Batman: Arkham Knight has overcome Scarecrow's fear toxin to top the UK sales charts for a second consecutive week. Warner Bros' domination of the industry continued as LEGO Jurassic World completed yet another double header for the publisher, which has been knocking it out of the park ever since Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor released last...

Japanese Sales Charts: Persona 4 Dancing All Night Helps Vita Boogie to Victory

Beary good

There's finally some moderately good news for PlayStation in Japan, as Sony's sleek little handheld has grooved to the top of the hardware charts thanks to the release of Vita exclusive, Persona 4 Dancing All Night. The portable console sold through 23,134 units last week, which is close to double the amount that it sold in the week...

UK Sales Charts: Batman: Arkham Knight Swoops in as the Biggest Launch of 2015 So Far

The Bat is back

Warner Bros must be making an absolute killing these days. The publisher seems to pump out hit after hit, with Dying Light and Mortal Kombat X both reaching the top of the UK sales charts in recent times. And, perhaps as expected, that success has continued with Batman: Arkham Knight, which has swooped into first place. The caped...

UK Sales Charts: The Elder Scrolls Online Explores the Summit

Back on its throne

Despite a troubled PC launch, the console version of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has wandered to the top of the UK sales charts. Surprisingly, the game actually sold best on the Xbox One, despite recent role-playing releases like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt faring stronger on Sony's format. It's not clear at the time...

Japanese Sales Charts: The Witcher 3 Holds Its Ground as PS4 Sinks Deeper

Sigh

We're going to be honest here: we really can't pad this article out with any kind of flair. Once again, the Japanese charts make for some reasonably depressing reading, as the PlayStation 4's sales continue to drop. Last week, Sony's latest sold just 11,763 units, and only three PS4 titles made it into the top 20. You can compare the prior...

Steins;Gate's punctuation doesn't put punters off

Legacy platform, eh? Not on your nelly! Uber-niche PlayStation 3 and Vita release Steins;Gate has managed to make the UK sales charts Top 40 – and it's the handheld version that sold best. PQube stealthily published the visual novel last week, but that hasn't stopped it from landing the 18th spot...

Japanese Sales Charts: The Witcher 3 Sticks to the Top 5 as PS4 Sales Continue to Drag

The hunt continues

It was another rather dismal seven day period for console sales in Japan last week. PlayStation 4 sales jumped ever so slightly, while the PS Vita hopped above its home system sibling into second place, selling through 12,517 units. As for software, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was pushed from the top spot by a certain Nintendo...

UK Sales Charts: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Is Still Top Wolf

Competition goes splat

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt held onto its position atop the UK sales charts this week, despite competition from Wii U exclusive Splatoon, which was forced to settle for second. We had an inkling things would turn out this way. Grand Theft Auto V, FIFA 15, and Farming Simulator 15 rounded out the top five – an especially...
