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.

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.

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.

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 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...

Small consolation

There's been very little cause for PlayStation Vita owners to celebrate of late, but Sony's diminutive device has just hit a major milestone in Japan, crossing the 4,000,000 unit threshold. This number takes into account both handheld and PlayStation TV sales, but seeing as they're both built upon the same hardware, we reckon...

Almost Half PS4 Owners Never Had a PS3

Changing minds

At this point, we can probably all accept that the PlayStation 3 had problems.

With the PlayStation 4, however, the Japanese giant's got back to its...
