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...

PlayStation Plus Freebies, Resident Evil Zero, Ultra Street Fighter IV

All over

Well, that may have been one of the worst weeks ever for personal reasons – but it also wasn't that exciting from a PlayStation perspective either.

27th May 2015 (Europe)

Goods to go

How are we supposed to effectively copy and paste the European PlayStation Store update when you keep changing the layout Sony? Oh right, that's not your concern – fair enough. We'll just get down to business, then: Ultra Street Fighter IV is the biggest new arrival this time, but you may want to think twi

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...

Don't Hold Your Breath for the PS3 Version of Mortal Kombat X

Don't get over here

The game's already been delayed once, but now it's looking like its release has been pushed...

According to the game's character designer, Akira Yasuda, the team's busy working on imagery for E3 2015. It's unclear what kind of appearance the sci-fi role-playing game will put in at the...
