Japanese Sales Charts: Kept You Waiting, Huh?

Fortunately, there's not much to see here

Once again, there's nothing doing in the Japanese sales charts – well, unless you're fascinated by the evergreen nature of Nintendo's biggest franchises. Actually, the PlayStation 4 is proving a bit of an oddity in the East at the moment; it's not selling well by any stretch of the imagination, but it's...

PS4 Exclusive Everybody's Gone to the Rapture Was Technically Top of the UK Charts Last Week

Digital be damned

As reported, LEGO Jurassic World was top of the UK sales charts last week - but as we all know, the rankings don't take digital releases into account. The concept seems a bit mad when you consider how much money firms like Sony are raking in from their digital marketplaces, and it seems crazier still when you realise how many...

UK Sales Charts: There's Nothing to See Here

Zzz

Ah, the British summer – a time where the locals turn out in too few clothes despite there being clouds in the sky and the sales charts hibernate for a few weeks. There's absolutely nothing worth mentioning in this latest top ten, but we'll do our best. LEGO Jurassic World is back at the top, while Grand Theft Auto V's in second. The Elder...

July 2015 NPD: PS4 Tops Hardware and Software Sales Again

Sony humbled by success

Sony can do no wrong in the United States it seems, as the PlayStation 4 was once again the best selling system in the all-important nation during July. Despite a lack of new releases, the continued popularity of the Japanese giant's exclusive Batman: Arkham Knight bundle pushed the organisation's box out in front – a...

Japanese Sales Charts: The PS4 Is Stuck in a Real Rut

Sales are down once again

We'd recommend getting used to how these charts look, because the PlayStation 4's going nowhere in Japan as long as there's a distinct lack of exclusive software hitting Sony's latest home console. The new-gen machine tallied up sales of just 14,619 units last week. You can compare the prior week's sales charts through...

UK Sales Charts: A Rare Change at the Summit

Blast from the past

Xbox One exclusive Rare Replay shot straight to the top of the UK sales charts in a desperately slow summer week, securing the legendary British developer's first number one since Banjo-Kazooie all the way back in 1998. Elsewhere, last week's frontrunner LEGO Jurassic World moved down into second, while Batman: Arkham Knight,...

Japanese Sales Charts: Nothing to See Here, Go Back to Gamescom News

Off you go

Imagine writing a story about the Japanese hardware and software charts on a day when every game under the sun is getting Gamescom 2015 coverage. An atrocious process for all those involved, we're sure that you'll agree, but we do this every week, so we suppose that we're bound by duty. So, what's happening in Japan? The answer: bugger...

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...
