UK Sales Charts: F1 2016 Overtakes No Man's Sky to Take Pole

Va va vroom

Whoops, we forgot about the UK sales charts! That's probably an indication of just how uninteresting they've been for some time now, but we should probably cover them anyway. F1 2016 has raced into an early lead, overtaking No Man's Sky to take pole position this week. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens squeezed a place on the podium...

PS4's Completely Crushing the Competition in Germany

Sony's got almost 70 per cent market share

As we've written so many times already, Sony's dominance this generation can't be attributed solely to favourable policies or press conference clangers – it's the legwork that it's invested into Europe over the years that's doing the business. New figures coming out of Germany show that the PlayStation...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Numbers Drop as New Dynasty Warriors Game Bombs

Please save us, Persona 5

Dear oh dear, the latest Japanese sales charts don't make for particularly pleasant reading for PlayStation enthusiasts. For the first time in months, PS4 numbers dropped below the 20,000 mark, with Sony's current-gen console selling through just 16,469 units. Simply put, the likes of Persona 5 and Final Fantasy XV can't...

A sign of how slow the UK games industry is this summer: Grand Theft Auto V has reassumed its position at the top of the charts for the first time since March 2015. The game's been in the list for 150 weeks now, and this is its ninth number one. It was, however, a close-run contest between Rockstar's open world adventure and...

UK Sales Charts: Uncharted 4 Sales Increase 94 Per Cent

Up and at 'em

With the school holidays underway, Sony's pumped a ton more cash into Uncharted 4: A Thief's End here in the UK, widely advertising a special price promotion. The game dropped to £34.99 temporarily – though you could get it even cheaper at some stores – and that prompted a 94 per cent surge in sales. It still wasn't enough to...

PS4 Sizzles This Summer with Hot EU PlayStation Store Deals

Lots of low prices

Sony's been doing pretty well with PlayStation Store discounts this year, and this four week European Summer Sale is decent.

UK Sales Charts: There's Very Little to See Here

As you were

There's very little to talk about in this week's UK sales charts, we're afraid; LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens topped the best sellers list for a fourth consecutive week – the fourth is clearly with it. Elsewhere, the top ten is packed with typical titles, like FIFA 16, Overwatch, and Grand Theft Auto V. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Ain't Got New Games, But it Keeps Selling Anyway

The never-ending story

Well this is all a bit familiar, isn't it? Once again, the PlayStation 4 has topped the Japanese hardware charts with 22,717 units sold despite the fact that there's been bugger all releasing on the system. The PS4 "Welcome Price" version of last year's Tales of Zestiria was the only current-gen title to make it into the...

The console launched on 22nd February 2014 in the platform holder's home nation, so it's taken over two years to achieve the target. While that sounds promising...
