  • UK Sales Charts Resident Evil, Life Is Strange Mix Things Up

    Rising S.T.A.R.S.

    Praise the gaming gods: there's change in this week's UK sales charts. Don't get too excited, mind – there's not that much for us to write about. But while Call of Duty: Black Ops III clings onto its crown, Resident Evil Origins Collection and Life Is Strange have infiltrated the UK top ten. The former compiles Resident Evil...

  • News Sony Reveals the PlayStation Store's Best Sellers For 2015

    Go big or go home

    There aren't too many surprises to be found in the PlayStation Store's list of best sellers for 2015, but hey, everyone likes a look at what's been hot over the last 12 months. In Europe, Destiny: The Taken King took the crown as the most downloaded PlayStation 4 title, beating out the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops III - which...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Odin Sphere Claims the Top Spots on PS4 and Vita

    Sphere of influence

    Atlus should be reasonably happy with Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir's initial performance in Japan, as the gorgeous action role-playing game took first and second place on the software charts. The Vita version climbed highest, selling through 43,394 copies, while the PlayStation 4 release barely missed out on the top spot, selling...

  • UK Sales Charts Grand Theft Auto V Keeps Truckin'

    Rockstar's release up to second as Call of Duty tops

    Grand Theft Auto V is an unstoppable juggernaut. The game, which first launched over two years ago, has climbed to second in this week's UK sales charts, proving that there ain't any stopping Rockstar's train. Call of Duty: Black Ops III continued its dominance in first position, while FIFA 16,...

  • News Third-Parties Nudge Exclusives Out of USA's 2015 Best Sellers List

    Black Ops III the best-selling game of the year

    Not a single exclusive made the NPD's best-selling games of 2015 list, proving once again that third-parties rule supreme right now. Video game sales totalled $13.1 billion in the United States for the year overall, exactly the same as in 2014. This ultimately means that, while new-gen hardware is on...

  • News December 2015 NPD: Sony Thanks Fans for Putting PS4 on Top Again

    USA's preferred platform in 2015

    In what's becoming an all too familiar tale, the PlayStation 4 has topped the NPD hardware charts yet again. Sony's system was on top in the United States for the month of December, completing a clean sweep for the all-important Christmas period. This means that the Xbox One only managed to triumph over the Japanese...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Slips Following Decent Holiday Sales

    Sales, sales never change

    As expected, PlayStation 4 numbers have taken a tumble now that the holiday season is over, with sales falling back to a rather standard 36,559 units for last week. Still, we suppose it could be worse, as there's currently a real lack of new software releases in Japan. Speaking of which, it's nice to see Fallout 4...

  • UK Sales Charts Best Sellers, Best Sellers Never Change

    Zzz

    Nothing to see here, folks. The UK sales charts have barely changed for nearing a month now, and that remains true this week, with Call of Duty: Black Ops III on top yet again. FIFA 16 managed to bump Star Wars Battlefront down into third, while Grand Theft Auto V overtook Fallout 4 in fourth. The only real surprise this time is that Battlefield...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 and Vita Continue Strong Seasonal Performance

    Brothers in arms

    The latest sales charts from the East are in, confirming that the last seven days have once again been pretty darn solid for the Japanese market. As expected of the season, hardware figures continued to enjoy a healthy boost, as PlayStation 4 sales increased to 65,427 units, while Vita managed a very respectable 63,811 units...

  • UK Sales Charts Ain't No Beating Call of Duty: Black Ops III

    Back in black

    Call of Duty has become such a strange series. Much like FIFA, it feels like – review time aside – the franchise barely gets any coverage on mainstream websites, and yet year after year it dominates the sales charts. Perhaps it spotlights the contrast between so-called "hardcore gamers" and more casual players – but whatever...

  • UK Sales Charts Call of Duty Clings on to Christmas Crown

    BlOps-ing Day

    While it's true that Call of Duty doesn't sell quite as well as it used to, it's still a much stronger brand than virtually all of its peers. Having secured the Christmas crown last week, Black Ops III has once again topped the UK sales charts, having increased its numbers by a whopping 40 per cent. As expected, the PS4 version sold...

  • UK Sales Charts Black Ops III Beats Battlefront to Christmas Number One

    A CoD Christmas

    Call of Duty: Black Ops III has breached the top of the UK sales charts, making it the sixth title in the series to secure the coveted Christmas number one spot. The shooter did come under heavy fire from Star Wars Battlefront, which saw a 20 per cent increase on the back of The Force Awakens fever, but it wasn't enough to topple...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Gravity Rush Features as PS4 and Vita Enjoy Holiday Bump

    Mixed up world

    Nintendo enjoyed its usual seasonal boost in the latest Media Create report, with both the Wii U and 3DS dominating the Japanese hardware and software charts. Despite this, it was a good week for the PlayStation 4 and Vita, with both systems selling over 35,000 units apiece. Gravity Rush Remastered was the headline new release,...

  • UK Sales Charts Call of Duty: Black Ops III Breaches the Top Spot

    Back in black

    Star Wars Battlefront, FIFA 16, and Fallout 4 may have fought valiantly – but Call of Duty: Black Ops III wasn't going to be down for long, was it? Activision's evergreen shooter has reclaimed its place atop the UK sales charts, with all of the above titles making up the Top Five alongside Minecraft: Story Mode. Just

  • News November 2015 NPD: PS4 Smashes Xbox One in Important Holiday Month

    Record breaking sales for Sony's box

    It looks like the PlayStation 4's narrow loss in October's NPD report was just a blip, as the system has responded with some record breaking sales in November. According to the Japanese giant, its box was preferred to the Xbox One during the busy Thanksgiving period in the United States, with speculation...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Numbers Jump as the Holidays Draw Near

    Let it snow

    The PlayStation 4 saw a relatively strong sales surge last week in Japan, as numbers jumped from 26,598 to 35,782. An increase of around 10,000 units, it's no doubt a welcome sight for Sony as we approach the holidays. It's worth mentioning that the Vita also enjoyed a sales boost, racking up a respectable figure of 21,860. Meanwhile,...

  • UK Sales Charts Just Cause 3 Blows a Hole in the Top Five

    Marvellous Medici

    Just Cause 3 tethered a landmine to fourth position in this week's UK sales charts – and pulled them both together. Avalanche Studios' open world adventure appears to have got off to a flying start, but it couldn't topple FIFA 16, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, or Star Wars Battlefront – all three of which remained glued to the...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Holds Steady Despite Lack of New Software

    Sony stays solid

    We're not kidding this time around: there really isn't anything to write about when it comes to the most recent Japanese sales charts - at least, not from a PlayStation perspective. Sony's latest console managed to stick around the 25,000-30,000 mark last week, despite a lack of fresh software. Sure, 26,598 isn't a particularly...

  • UK Sales Charts Uncharted PS4 Sales Spike by 999 Per Cent

    Knack returns to the Top 40

    Black Friday week proved so enormous that the UK sales charts were delayed over 24 hours due to a system error at a major retailer. It's not surprising, though, as retail software sales increased by 60 per cent compared to the previous week, with hardware sales jumping by eight per cent year-over-year. Despite this, the...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Star Wars Battlefront Explodes onto the Scene and Boosts PS4

    The force is strong, etc.

    The PlayStation 4 is finally holding steady in Japan, with last week's sales hitting a total of 29,052 units. It was helped, of course, by a very successful Star Wars Battlefront launch, which saw the blockbuster release sell through 123,908 copies - more than enough to put it at the top of the software charts...

  • UK Sales Charts Star Wars Battlefront Feels the Force on PS4

    Sony SKU outsells other systems combined

    Star Wars Battlefront has become the fastest selling Star Wars title of all time in the UK, beating previous record holder The Force Unleashed by 117 per cent. The game sold almost 60 per cent of its copies on the PlayStation 4, meaning that Sony's system beat the Xbox One and PC's combined tally by some...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 and Black Ops III Reign Supreme

    PS4 crosses two million milestone

    Call of Duty: Black Ops III enjoyed its second week at the top of the Japanese software charts according to the latest Media Create numbers. Proving that the shooter really does have worldwide appeal, the blast-'em-up sold through 43,629 copies in the last seven days, boosting total sales to a relatively...

  • UK Sales Charts Fallout 4 Goes Nuclear on PS4

    Bombs dropped

    As expected, Fallout 4 absolutely scorched the UK sales charts this week, entering in first position and securing the third biggest launch of the year so far. The game – which sold over half of its copies on the PlayStation 4 despite an Xbox One marketing deal – bettered its predecessor Fallout: New Vegas' first week numbers by...

  • News October 2015 NPD: PS4's Halo Slips as System Slumps to Second Defeat of the Year

    Bruised but not broken

    Sony couldn't muster a sixth successive NPD victory in October 2015, as the Xbox One and Halo 5 managed to overcome the PlayStation 4's price drop. In truth, it looks like it was a pretty middling month for home consoles in the United States, with sales barely increasing year-over-year. However, it's worth remembering that...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Gets a Boost as Black Ops 3 Blasts to the Top

    Explosive

    Most Western titles barely manage to register in the Japanese software charts, but that hasn't been the case for Call of Duty in quite some time. The latest blockbuster in Activision's colossal first-person franchise, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, entered the charts in first place, selling through an impressive 143,817 copies on...

  • UK Sales Charts Call of Duty: Black Ops III Sells Best on PS4

    Need for Speed pulls ahead on Sony's system, too

    Sony's marketing partnership with Activision appears to have done the trick, as Call of Duty: Black Ops III sold best on the PlayStation 4 in the UK. A whopping 48 per cent of shoppers picked up the first-person shooter on the Japanese giant's flagship format. In comparison, 43 per cent got it on the...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Seems to Have Found a Bit of Stability at the Top

    And we're not talking firmware

    Yes, the PlayStation 4's numbers have dropped, but not by much. Sony's latest console shifted 22,104 units last week, which is down just 800 from prior figures - not a bad result considering that the machine's been steadily slipping back to its pre-price cut sales until now. The Japanese company will probably be...

  • UK Sales Charts Assassin's Creed Syndicate Loses Its Halo

    While Black Ops III waits in the wings

    It would have been an absolute catastrophe if Halo 5: Guardians failed to top the sales charts, but it did – outselling the launch numbers of Assassin's Creed Syndicate by 50 per cent. Of course, it's worth noting that Ubisoft's open world romp through London was the poorest performing entry in the property...

  • 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...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 and Vita Enjoy a Small Sales Boost

    But not much else

    It's another reasonably boring report on the latest Japanese sales charts this week we're afraid. With literally no new PlayStation releases to speak of in the top 20, the software charts are drearier than ever, but funnily enough, Sony's platforms have actually enjoyed a small boost in shifted units. The PlayStation 4 sold...

  • News 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...

  • News 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...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Sales Dip as New Games Sell Better on PS3

    The cycle continues

    It's been said about a million times by now, but we'll say it again: the PlayStation 3 is one of the main reasons why the PlayStation 4 is unable to keep a solid foothold in the Japanese market. While Sony's last-gen console has almost tumbled out of existence here in the West, the Japanese are still buying most of their...

  • 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,...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Batman Swoops In to Save the Day for PS4

    Victory from the shadows

    Well would you look at that - the PlayStation 4's back on top in Japan. Granted, the actual numbers aren't that great, but it just goes to show that with the right software, Sony's latest console still has a chance of seeing growth in The Land of the Rising Sun. The new-gen machine racked up 24,266 sales last week, which...

  • 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...

  • News June 2015 NPD: Batman Takes PS4 for a Ride to the Top of the Charts

    Sony's system still at sales summit

    Sony secured yet another month at the top of the USA sales charts in June 2015, as Batman: Arkham Knight helped the PlayStation 4 hold its lead at the top of the hardware charts. Despite a 51 per cent increase in Xbox One sales, Microsoft still couldn't dethrone the Japanese giant's new-gen system, which was no...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PlayStation's Road to Nowhere Continues

    Behold and despair

    Unless something changes dramatically over the next few weeks, we're not really sure how we'll be able to keep these articles at least somewhat interesting. Sony's Japanese campaign continues to drag at a despairing rate, with both PlayStation 4 and Vita sales dipping once again last week. You can compare the prior week's...

  • 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...

June2015

  • 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...

  • Japanese Sales Charts The Devil May Cry at These PS4 Numbers

    No, really

    Another week brings more shockingly depressing sales figures for PlayStation 4 fans in Japan. Sony's new-gen system went through a stellar period for a couple of months earlier in the year, but it's really struggling right now, and it's hard to pick out an imminent piece of software that's going to turn its fortunes around. The console...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Sales Keep Dropping While Software Stagnates

    The Witcher 3's still in there, though

    Despite The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's admirable efforts to stick in the top 10, PlayStation 4 unit sales have fallen yet again. Sony's newest console only managed to shift 10,822 units last week, but to be fair, the hardware charts make for generally depressing reading overall. You can compare the prior week's...

  • 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...

  • News May 2015 NPD: PS4 Enters E3 2015 As USA's Best Selling System

    The Witcher 3 hunts out software top spot

    E3 2015's all to play for, but Sony will have one victory to parade in Los Angeles next week: the May 2015 NPD. After a shock defeat in April, the Japanese giant has responded by immediately turning the tides; the PlayStation 4 was not only the best selling system of the month in the United States, but it...

  • 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...

  • UK Sales Charts Praise the Lord! A Wild PS Vita Game Appears

    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...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Console Sales Remain Pretty Terrible, But Witcher 3 PS4 Takes Top Spot

    Get in, Geralt

    The old saying goes that things will get worse before they get better, and that's hopefully what's happening with Japan's hardware market. Once again, last week was pretty dismal for hardware sales, as not a single console made it past the 20,000 mark. The PlayStation 4 saw a slight increase, jumping from 11,489 to 12,096 units, but...

  • News Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Secures Biggest UK Launch Of 2015

    63 percent of physical copies sold on the PlayStation 4

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has enjoyed the biggest UK launch week sales of 2015, it has been revealed. The open-world epic managed to comfortably eclipise the performance of its predecessor, outselling The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings by 608 percent. 63 percent of physical copies were sold on...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4, Vita Flounder as Final Fantasy Tops

    Depression quest

    Well, the hangover from Golden Week makes for particularly dire reading in this week's Japanese sales charts. As has been the case a lot lately, the PlayStation 4 was top of the hardware charts – though the Nintendo 3DS beat it comfortably if you combine its various models – but the numbers were disappointing across the board...

  • UK Sales Charts Project CARS Remains at the Front of the Pack

    Record breaker

    Here's an amazing bit of trivia for you: Project CARS is the first Bandai Namco published title to secure two consecutive weeks at the top of the UK charts since Ridge Racer Type-4 over 16 years ago. The simulation game saw a sizeable drop off in sales compared to its launch week, but was uncontested by the physical version of...

  • News 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...

  • News Mortal Kombat X Rips the Head from April's PlayStation Store Charts

    Top of the karate chops

    It looks like plenty of PlayStation 4 users in both North America and Europe were screaming get over here at Mortal Kombat X last month, as NetherRealm Studios' beat-'em-up has topped the April 2015 PlayStation Store charts on both sides of the Atlantic. Warner Bros' fighter finished first in both territories, though there...

  • 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...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Is Finally Knocked from Top Spot

    Not too much of a fall, though

    The PlayStation 4's still doing moderately well in Japan, despite the fact that it's finally been knocked from its perch at the summit by the Wii U, presumably because of several strong software releases on Nintendo's platform. Fortunately for Sony, its console still sold 19,782 units, which isn't a huge drop in...

  • 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. This has, of course, resulted in Mortal Kombat X holding onto its position at the top of the territory's sales charts for the third successive week, which means that it only needs to fight off Project CARS in order to match Battlefield...

  • UK Sales Charts Bloodborne Swings and Misses for the Top Spot 

    Battlefield Hardline locks down another win

    Bloodborne may have sparked some life and excitement into the industry over the last few weeks, but that hasn't been enough to help it to reach the top of the UK sales charts. The PlayStation 4 exclusive missed out on first place by 22,500 units, as Battlefield Hardline secured the win for the second...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Dominates as Final Fantasy Type-0 Schools Software

    Class dismissed

    The PlayStation 4's showing no signs of slowing down in its native Japan, as a slew of new releases are keeping the console at the top of the charts. Sony's newest black box sold through 46,395 units last week – a relatively hefty increase from its tally of 33,862 units the week before. Helping it reach that impressive number...

  • UK Sales Charts Battlefield Hardline Cuffs Itself to the Summit

    Taking a hard line

    Consumers clearly find Battlefield Hardline arresting, as the Visceral Games developed cops and robbers spin-off has roared right to the top of the UK sales charts. The new release fought off strong competition from Final Fantasy Type-0 HD which entered in second, leaving familiar favourites Grand Theft Auto V, Dying Light, and...
