  • 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...

  • News Yakuza Zero's Sales Should Keep Toshihiro Nagoshi in Fake Tan

    But will it ever release overseas?

    Gaming's most groomed executive Toshihiro Nagoshi will be smiling today, as Yakuza Zero – the latest entry in his soap opera-like series – has surpassed 500,000 units in Japan. The game's only three months old so this is a particularly impressive feat; perhaps it's time we reminded everyone that we'd love a...

  • News PlayStation Plus' Quality Sure Hasn't Declined in Japan

    Value added

    There’s a lot of chatter about the quality of PlayStation Plus of late. Despite giving out six free ‘rentals’ every month, Sony has been chastised by early adopters of the PlayStation 4 for focusing on indie giveaways rather than retail releases. Still, it’s been eager to add to the quality of the service’s offering,...

  • News Final Fantasy XIV Will Be Reborn on PS4 on 14th April in Japan

    Level up

    You may be waiting a little longer than expected for Final Fantasy XV, but Square Enix certainly isn't messing around with the PlayStation 4 port of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. With a beta for the next generation upgrade due out alongside Sony’s new console in Japan on

  • News Why Is No One Talking About Vita Brawler Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds?

    Girl power

    In an age where game development costs rival summer blockbusters, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for the industry to find space for hidden gems. Once the crown jewel of the PSone era, these relatively unknown titles have become less common outside of the indie space. Fortunately, they still exist in Japan, where outings such as...

  • News Devil May Cry's Dante and Virgil Return in Sengoku Basara 4

    Back from the dead

    With the recent reboot of Devil May Cry, many franchise fans worried that the old Dante design may be left to rot in a gaming graveyard. However, footage of a DLC add-on for the upcoming PlayStation 3 title Sengoku Basara 4 shows that the silver-headed hero's time isn't up just yet, with Dante and Virgil costumes available for two...

  • News Japan May Be Handheld Land, But It Still Wants the PS4

    Greatness awaits

    There’s a reason that Sony is using plenty of ammunition to promote the PlayStation Vita in Japan, and that’s because the region can’t get enough of handhelds. The astronomical sales of the Nintendo 3DS compared to the muted numbers attached to the Wii U and PlayStation 3 show how trends have changed – but there may yet be...
