Wait, the PS4's Not Dead in Japan After All?

Signs of life

With smartphones and dedicated handhelds ruling the roost in Japan, it’s been a difficult first year for the PlayStation 4 in its home nation.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Sales Continue Series Decline

Going down

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is arguably the best entry in the series since the original Black Ops, but not even a string of glowing reviews have managed to prevent the property from declining for the third year in a row.

Last minute lightning discounts

Cyber Monday is essentially Black Friday’s less exciting other half.

Grand Theft Auto V and Far Cry 4 perform strongest on Sony's system

UK Sales Charts: Assassin's Creed Unity Sails Past Black Flag's Launch Sales

Advanced Warfare still on top

There’s a great game in Assassin’s Creed Unity, but it’s obfuscated by bad bugs and glitches. To be fair, Ubisoft is working hard to fix things, and that’s already resulted in one major PlayStation 4 patch. However, upper-management won’t be too worried about the backlash to the game, as it’s outsold the...
