Level up

Finally, the UK sales charts have changed. After weeks and weeks of a samey looking top ten, Evolve and Nintendo's New 3DS have arrived to mix things up.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare back on top

Dying Light should, by right, have given the UK sales charts a bit of shake up this week, but seeing as it only released digitally in Europe last Wednesday, brace yourselves for a familiar top ten.

DriveClub Was the UK's Best Selling Exclusive of 2014

Pulling ahead

It may come as a shock to many, but DriveClub, the PlayStation 4 exclusive racer that was plagued by launch issues, was the UK's best selling exclusive game of 2014. The full list, which comes from MCV, takes console bundles into account, but doesn't follow digital sales, so we can probably assume that the gorgeous drive-'em-up sold by...
