UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Reclaims League Leadership

Back of the net

Unlike the current Manchester United team, FIFA 14 has managed to make a not-so-dramatic comeback to reclaim its position at the top of the UK sales charts. The soccer simulation – alongside first-person shooter Call of Duty: Ghosts – managed to topple last week’s frontrunner Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, which dropped all...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS Vita Sales Increase by 150 Per Cent Year-on-Year

Rising from the ashes

It’s the console that everyone loves to kick, but the PlayStation Vita is actually on the rise in Japan right now. Media Create statistics show that Sony’s flagship handheld format is the only device to build upon its early 2013 sales, with the diminutive device seeing an impressive 150 per cent upswing in popularity...

UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Continues Cup Run with Convincing Win

Draws Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition next

We’re running out of ways to make these UK sales charts posts interesting. Perhaps we should start talking about the weather, rather than the fact that FIFA 14 has enjoyed its ninth week at the summit of the best sellers list. Anything would be more interesting than a top three that hasn’t changed in...

UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Flaunts Its Consistency with Lengthy Spell at Summit

Top of the league

There’s not an ounce of Manchester United in EA Sports' soccer simulation FIFA 14 – after all, the multiformat release actually seems capable of stringing a couple of good results together. Yet again, the footy favourite has dribbled to the top of the UK sales charts, mocking the competition like a freshly converted Arsenal...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS Vita Keeps Plodding Along

Handheld keeping its head above water

The holidays have come to a conclusion in Japan, but the PlayStation Vita has held on fairly well. Naturally, it couldn’t sustain its stellar performance from the week prior, but the portable platform still managed to shift just shy of 30,000 units – and that’s without any major software releases to back...

December NPD: Xbox One Hits Back at PS4 in Next-Gen Console War

Sony says it's still winning in North America

Microsoft’s decision to redirect the majority of its Xbox One stock to North America may put the platform holder in positive spirits this evening, as the next generation system bettered the PlayStation 4 in the latest NPD sales report. According to a press release from the Redmond-based manufacturer,...

UK Sales Charts: Call of Duty: Ghosts Spooks the Summit

Tearaway trots back into sight

We’re confident that we could fabricate the contents of our weekly UK sales charts posts at this point, and no one would even bat an eyelid. Once again, last week’s top titles included Call of Duty: Ghosts, FIFA 14, and Battlefield 4. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes was arguably the biggest surprise

November NPD: PS4 Draws First Blood in North American Console War

Turning the tables

Sony has staged an assault on Microsoft's home territory, and topped the NPD charts with the PlayStation 4. According to the platform holder — which doesn't ordinarily engage in the monthly sales merry-go-round — its next generation console was the best-selling system in North America in November, moving one million units in...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS Vita TV's Audience Shrinks Again

Gran Turismo 6 takes pole position

Sony may be considering ways in which it can broadcast PS Vita TV overseas, but we reckon those plans may be shelved soon if the diminutive device doesn’t pick up the pace in its home territory. After a miserable first month on the market, the micro-console has now slumped to just 3,772 sales in Japan according...

UK Sales Charts: Gran Turismo 6 Falls Short of the Pace on PS3

Lapped by its predecessor

There was plenty of pent-up desire for Gran Turismo 5 when it eventually parked on store shelves all the way back in 2010, so it’s not especially surprising that its successor Gran Turismo 6 has debuted with sales less than its older sibling. However, we weren’t expecting such a sizeable drop. Chart-Track reports that...

UK Sales Charts: Knack Thumps Super Mario 3D World on the Nose

Mamma mia

Japan Studio’s enjoyable (but not outstanding) PlayStation 4 launch title Knack landed a heavy blow on the critically acclaimed Super Mario 3D World this week, finishing above the Wii U exclusive in the UK sales charts. Mark Cerny’s throwback platformer punched its way into 13th in the multiformat best-sellers list, while the bruised...

UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Sprints to the Summit

Back of the net

Unsurprisingly, this week’s UK sales chart is dominated by a certain non-Sony next generation console. With the Xbox One launching in Britain last Friday, a large chunk of this week’s top titles were sold on the Microsoft manufactured machine. That includes FIFA 14, which shot straight to the top of the league after seeing a...

Japanese Sales Charts: God Eater 2 Bursts onto the Scene with PS Vita TV

Tuned in

You may be forgiven for thinking that the PlayStation 4 was the only new gaming hardware launch last week – but you’d be wrong. While our friends in Japan are forced to wait until February to get their hands on the next generation console, they at least have a new toy to fill the time in the form of the PS Vita TV. The diminutive...

UK Sales Charts: PS4 Games Are Already Selling Strongly

Call of Duty: Ghosts gets off to a decent start on the system

Sony’s next generation console may be right around the corner in North America, but there are still a few weeks before it settles its blue and black chassis on UK stores shelves. That’s not stopping the console’s initial roster of software from performing fairly well, though, as...

UK Sales Charts: Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Gets the Wind in Its Sails

Battlefield 4 anchored in second

The excellent Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag outpaced Battlefield 4 to take this week’s UK sales charts crown, despite both titles being bitten by the next generation bug. Neither release managed to sell as many copies as their predecessors, with many consumers no doubt waiting for the PlayStation 4 versions of...
