August 2015 NPD: PS4 Scores a Touchdown as Madden NFL 16 Tops

No pads, no helmets

August is well and truly over, and the latest NPD report confirms that the PlayStation 4 was the best selling box in the United States yet again. Sony's console outsold the competition in both the hardware and software departments, with Madden NFL 16 unsurprisingly touching down at the top of the latter list. Despite all of...

Japanese Sales Charts: Metal Gear Solid V Brings PS4 Its Best Numbers in Months

Sneaking to success

Wow, who knew that big games sell consoles? After weeks of incredibly dreary Japanese sales charts reading, the PlayStation 4 has finally jumped back up to respectable numbers. With the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the new-gen system leapt to the top of the hardware charts with sales of 54,494 units. Hideo...

UK Sales Charts: Metal Gear Solid V Takes a Chopper to the Top

72% of sales were on PS4

Who didn't see this one coming? Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has tiptoed straight into number one here in the UK following its launch on the 1st September. Equally unsurprising is that 72 per cent of the stealth-'em-up's sales were on the PlayStation 4. However, Kojima's latest didn't sell quite well enough to beat...

PS4 Surpasses Yet Another Sales Milestone

This time in the Middle East

Sony's new-gen system is on fire pretty much all around the world, and the story is no different in the Middle East. The platform holder confirmed today that it has surpassed one million sales in the region, which consists of several different countries, including Turkey and Qatar. Speaking of the success, SCE gaffer...

Gran Turismo 6 Sales Linger at the Back of the Pack

Slow coach

You could argue that Sony supported the PlayStation 3 too long. Sony Santa Monica and Naughty Dog both released big games for the console during the year of the PlayStation 4's release, and the likes of Gran Turismo 6 deployed after the new-gen device. Unsurprisingly, that decision had a negative impact on the latter's sales, as ongoing...

Killzone: Shadow Fall's PS4 Price Shot to Pieces on EU PlayStation Store

Helgasp

Killzone: Shadow Fall sure has its critics, but there are things to enjoy about this PlayStation 4 exclusive shooter. And if you haven't got around to the launch title just yet, Sony's discounted it on the European PlayStation Store this week, brining the price of entry down to just £11.99. That's not bad, and with the Season Pass selling...

Japanese Sales Charts: Until Dawn and Dragon's Dogma Online Give Us Something to Write About

New titles boost PS4 sales

After what seems like weeks of being unable to write about anything remotely interesting happening in the Japanese sales charts, fresh releases have finally hit PlayStation platforms. Choose-your-own-horror Until Dawn slashed its way into sixth place in the software charts, selling 17,472 copies, while the highly...

UK Sales Charts: Until Dawn Spooks the Second Spot

Shock scare

Considering ten days ago virtually everyone expected Until Dawn to flop, the Supermassive Games developed schlock horror has enjoyed something of a surprise turnaround. The game entered the UK sales charts this week in second, just one spot behind Gears of War: Ultimate Edition – which is obviously both cheaper and based upon an...

The Witcher 3 Sold a Whopping 6 Million Copies in Its First 6 Weeks on the Market

Raking in the coin

According to CD Projekt Red's latest financial report, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt sold through more than 6 million units in its first six weeks on the market. Perhaps an expected result for a title that's received such high praise and a solid marketing campaign, but it's a great statistic for a bloody good game regardless. The...

Japanese Sales Charts: Kept You Waiting, Huh?

Fortunately, there's not much to see here

Once again, there's nothing doing in the Japanese sales charts – well, unless you're fascinated by the evergreen nature of Nintendo's biggest franchises. Actually, the PlayStation 4 is proving a bit of an oddity in the East at the moment; it's not selling well by any stretch of the imagination, but it's...

PGA Tour PS4's Price Putt Down in EU PlayStation Store Sale

Cost of LEGO games also crumbled

With no release date or information attached to Sony's own Hot Shots Golf sequel, we're gagging for a good gold game on the PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, the recently released Rory McIlroy PGA Tour hit a bit of a bogey – but we'd happily take it for a swing at the right price. Fortunately, then, EA Sports has...

PS4 Exclusive Everybody's Gone to the Rapture Was Technically Top of the UK Charts Last Week

Digital be damned

As reported, LEGO Jurassic World was top of the UK sales charts last week - but as we all know, the rankings don't take digital releases into account. The concept seems a bit mad when you consider how much money firms like Sony are raking in from their digital marketplaces, and it seems crazier still when you realise how many...

UK Sales Charts: There's Nothing to See Here

Zzz

Ah, the British summer – a time where the locals turn out in too few clothes despite there being clouds in the sky and the sales charts hibernate for a few weeks. There's absolutely nothing worth mentioning in this latest top ten, but we'll do our best. LEGO Jurassic World is back at the top, while Grand Theft Auto V's in second. The Elder...

July 2015 NPD: PS4 Tops Hardware and Software Sales Again

Sony humbled by success

Sony can do no wrong in the United States it seems, as the PlayStation 4 was once again the best selling system in the all-important nation during July. Despite a lack of new releases, the continued popularity of the Japanese giant's exclusive Batman: Arkham Knight bundle pushed the organisation's box out in front – a...

Japan's Holding Back the PlayStation 4

"We're jealous of Europe and US for the high rate of PS4 sales"

While the PlayStation 4 is breaking sales records all over the globe, Japan is proving a particularly tough nut to crack. With the nation becoming increasingly enamoured with smartphones, Sony's really finding it difficult to get consumers to pay attention to its new console. And one...

Japanese Sales Charts: The PS4 Is Stuck in a Real Rut

Sales are down once again

We'd recommend getting used to how these charts look, because the PlayStation 4's going nowhere in Japan as long as there's a distinct lack of exclusive software hitting Sony's latest home console. The new-gen machine tallied up sales of just 14,619 units last week. You can compare the prior week's sales charts through...

Grand Theft Auto V Has Made More Bank Than You Can Imagine

Sequel surpasses 54 million sales

Franklin, Michael, and Trevor should jack in their thug lives and learn to become game developers instead – after all, Grand Theft Auto V proves that there's more money in this industry anyway. As revealed by Rockstar's parent company Take-Two during a financial call overnight, the fifth instalment in its...

UK Sales Charts: A Rare Change at the Summit

Blast from the past

Xbox One exclusive Rare Replay shot straight to the top of the UK sales charts in a desperately slow summer week, securing the legendary British developer's first number one since Banjo-Kazooie all the way back in 1998. Elsewhere, last week's frontrunner LEGO Jurassic World moved down into second, while Batman: Arkham Knight,...

Japanese Sales Charts: Nothing to See Here, Go Back to Gamescom News

Off you go

Imagine writing a story about the Japanese hardware and software charts on a day when every game under the sun is getting Gamescom 2015 coverage. An atrocious process for all those involved, we're sure that you'll agree, but we do this every week, so we suppose that we're bound by duty. So, what's happening in Japan? The answer: bugger...
