April 2015 NPD: PS4 Slumps to Shock Defeat

Xbox One brushes PS4 aside

Well, well, well – this is unexpected. We reported on the PlayStation 3's failure to top the NPD charts for many years, but we've already fallen into a pattern where we expect the PlayStation 4 to lead. However, the numbers coming out of the United States for April 2015 may wake both Sony and ourselves up, as the Xbox...

Japanese Sales Charts: Vita Overtakes PS4 as Not a Single New-Gen Title Enters Top 20

Ouch

The PlayStation 4's steadily slipping down the Japanese charts, as it suffered another sales drop last week. Sony's latest console shifted 15,992 units as it fell into third place, behind the New 3DS LL and the PS Vita. The latter continues to escape store shelves at a solid rate, though, selling through 17,273 units. You can compare the...

UK Sales Charts: Project CARS Roars to Pole Position on PS4

Racing ahead

Crowd funded racing game Project CARS has pulled ahead of the pack, scoring the first simulation podium position since GRID 2 all the way back in 2013. The title sold best on the PlayStation 4 – which is not especially surprising considering the lack of similar games on Sony's system – and finished in front of familiar favourites...

UK Sales Charts: Mortal Kombat X Marks the Top Spot

Fatality attraction

Despite being a Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK, there were no major software releases.

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Manages to Cling to the Top Spot Despite Another Drop

Hangin' on in there

Despite the fact that we thought the PlayStation 4 would finally be knocked from its perch at the top last week, Sony's sleek home console actually managed to seize another victory, even though sales have slipped again, this time by around 2000 units. Of course, this is still only possible because of the fact that New 3DS...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Endures Another Hefty Slip, But Still Comes Out on Top

Technically, at least

Yep, it's really happening: the PlayStation 4's recent dominance of the Japanese hardware charts is without doubt coming to a close, but even a weighty drop of about 10,000 sales hasn't been enough to knock Sony's home console off the top spot. You can compare last week's Japanese charts through here Selling through 17,855...

UK Sales Charts: Bloodborne Keeps Dark Souls II at Bay

Battlefield Hardline above both

Bloodborne managed to hold its own fairly well over the Easter holidays, slipping down to third in the cumulative UK sales charts, but remaining the best-selling individual game across all formats. Combined SKUs pegged Battlefield Hardline at the top, while Grand Theft Auto V finished second. All three ended ahead of...

Japanese Sales Charts: PlayStation 4 and Bloodborne Slaughter the Competition 

The hunt is over

The PlayStation 4 is basking in the blood of its enemies right now, as it's managed to top the Japanese hardware charts for the fifth week in a row. A slew of big software releases have kept Sony's system in first place, although that momentum could be slowing down soon now that the big hitters have passed by. Still, Bloodborne...
