Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Numbers Skyrocket Thanks to Slim Release and Persona 5

That's more like it

Remember last week when we speculated that the PlayStation 4 would probably jump back to around the 20,000 mark and continue to stay there? Well, it turns out that we underestimated the Power of PlayStation, as it were. With the help of the newly released Slim model, sales of Sony's current-gen console absolutely skyrocketed,...

Persona 5 Is the Fastest Selling Persona Game in 20 Years

Tops latest Japanese charts on PS4

Persona 5's opening week sales are in, and they're looking pretty good - especially if you're a company named Atlus. The highly anticipated title, which launched in Japan on the 15th September, topped the country's latest software charts on PlayStation 4, while second place was snatched up by the PlayStation 3...

UK Sales Charts: Overwatch Is Still Unbeatable as Uncharted Stretches Its Legs

Tracer on top

Sony must be really, really satisfied with Uncharted 4: A Thief's End. The game's been a constant in the UK top ten since its release, and it's remained in seventh this week. No Man's Sky, another first-party game, is also doing incredibly well for itself – despite the poor word of mouth. It's finished up in eighth this week. But...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Flatlines as Slim Model Nears

The Witcher 3's back, though

As you'd expect, PlayStation 4 sales are plummeting in Japan ahead of the Slim's imminent arrival. Sony's system sold through just 1828 units last week as the standard PS4 model is slowly phased out to make room for its sleeker sibling. Meanwhile, on the software side of things, there's no really too much to see. The...

UK Sales Charts: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Hacks Top, But Sales Softer Than Human Revolution

Rusty

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided tapped its way straight to the top of the UK sales charts, but its predecessor Human Revolution enjoyed a "much stronger" first week. That's according to Chart-Track, who compiles the British best sellers list. As expected, the game performed best on the PlayStation 4, which is a very common occurrence for...

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...

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...

UK Sales Charts: Grand Theft Auto V Assumes the Throne

Franklin amazing

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...
