    Final Fantasy XIV targets software summit

    The low stock Nintendo Switch situation has opened the door for the PlayStation 4 to return to the top of the Japanese hardware charts – albeit with relatively unimpressive figures all told.

  • UK Sales Charts Gran Theft Auto V Steals Back Top Spot

    You're a Rockstar

    There’s just no stopping Grand Theft Auto V, which has robbed back the UK sales charts summit for the 13th time since its release. To be fair, this was a very slow week, with Dead by Daylight being the best new arrival in 16th position. Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood debuted in 23rd place, and that’s all she wrote really. The...

  • Japanese Sales Charts All's Quiet on the PlayStation Front

    Summertime snoozefest

    Bad news if you thought the Japanese sales charts were about to get interesting, because for the millionth week running, there's bugger all happening as far as PlayStation's concerned.

  • UK Sales Charts Horizon Keeps ARMS at Arm's-Length

    The huntress returns

    Horizon: Zero Dawn has returned to the summit of the UK sales charts, after being reduced nationwide as part of the Days of Play promotion.

  • Japanese Sales Charts Read the E3 2017 News Instead

    Another slow week

    The Japanese sales charts are out, and as has been the case for several weeks now, there’s naff all going on apart from the Nintendo Switch getting a trickle of stock. PlayStation 4 sales are in the gutter, but it’s just a dry spell for the entire industry at the moment; expect sales to perk up across the board when Dragon...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Tekken 7 Juggles Its Way to Number 1

    Tekken it higher

    Well, there's only one worthwhile story to extract from the latest Japanese sales charts.

  • News Sony Believes PlayStation Vita Is Still a Viable System

    But not in the West

    Despite being the successor to a platform that moved over 80 million units, the PlayStation Vita has been a commercial flop. While the handheld is fantastic to use, it never quite got the support needed to make it succeed in a changing world where smartphones rule pockets around the world. And as part of an interview with The...

  • News PS4 Is Still Crushing the Competition, Especially in Europe

    Sony shares new numbers

    The PlayStation 4 is still well on track to being one of the most successful consoles that Sony has ever launched.

  • News PS4 Pro Selling 'Way Ahead of Expectations', Says Sony

    One in five PS4 sales are Pro

    The PS4 Pro may have started life a little rough thanks to Sony's somewhat dull hardware reveal event and a cavalcade of leaks, but the reality is that the company never had gigantic expectations for the mid-generation upgrade. Aimed first and foremost at the hardcore gaming crowd, the Pro is a more expensive option...
