News: Japanese Sales Charts: The Witcher 3 Holds Its Ground as PS4 Sinks Deeper

Japanese Sales Charts: The Witcher 3 Holds Its Ground as PS4 Sinks Deeper

Sigh

We're going to be honest here: we really can't pad this article out with any kind of flair. Once again, the Japanese charts make for some reasonably depressing reading, as the PlayStation 4's sales continue to drop. Last week, Sony's latest sold just 11,763 units, and only three PS4 titles made it into the top 20. You can compare the prior...

The Order: 1886 'Well on Way' to Meeting Sales Targets

According to Ready at Dawn, anyway

The promising potential, the secrecy surrounding its sales, the eventual split – The Order: 1886 really is Heavenly Sword for a new generation. While we all come to terms with the lengths that Sony will go in order to repurpose the previous generation, though, here's some corporate double-speak from new Ready...

UK Sales Charts: Praise the Lord! A Wild PS Vita Game Appears

Steins;Gate's punctuation doesn't put punters off

Legacy platform, eh? Not on your nelly! Uber-niche PlayStation 3 and Vita release Steins;Gate has managed to make the UK sales charts Top 40 – and it's the handheld version that sold best. PQube stealthily published the visual novel last week, but that hasn't stopped it from landing the 18th spot...

Japanese Sales Charts: The Witcher 3 Sticks to the Top 5 as PS4 Sales Continue to Drag

The hunt continues

It was another rather dismal seven day period for console sales in Japan last week. PlayStation 4 sales jumped ever so slightly, while the PS Vita hopped above its home system sibling into second place, selling through 12,517 units. As for software, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was pushed from the top spot by a certain Nintendo...

UK Sales Charts: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Is Still Top Wolf

Competition goes splat

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt held onto its position atop the UK sales charts this week, despite competition from Wii U exclusive Splatoon, which was forced to settle for second. We had an inkling things would turn out this way. Grand Theft Auto V, FIFA 15, and Farming Simulator 15 rounded out the top five – an especially...

News: Sony: PlayStation Vita Is a Legacy Platform

Sony: PlayStation Vita Is a Legacy Platform

Gulp

It's perhaps an indictment of the current state of the PlayStation Vita in the Western world that we haven't really found the need to write an update on the device for some time. While there was hope of the format's fortunes turning around 18 or so months ago, the platform's fate has remained unchanged for a while now. And while it continues...

Japanese Sales Charts: Console Sales Remain Pretty Terrible, But Witcher 3 PS4 Takes Top Spot

Get in, Geralt

The old saying goes that things will get worse before they get better, and that's hopefully what's happening with Japan's hardware market. Once again, last week was pretty dismal for hardware sales, as not a single console made it past the 20,000 mark. The PlayStation 4 saw a slight increase, jumping from 11,489 to 12,096 units, but...

News: Japanese Game Sales Hit a Whole New Low Last Week

Japanese Game Sales Hit a Whole New Low Last Week

The beginning of the end

Japan may be responsible for our love affair with video games, but the country is quickly going off the consoles that it helped to popularise. You may remember the dire Media Create figures that we posted earlier in the week – well, they are worse than you think. Much worse. According to the organisation, last week's...

Plenty of PS4 Titles Discounted in NA Extended Play Sale

Never stop playing

If your wallet's still recovering from last week's Flash Sale, then you may want to give your browser's back button a great big prod before reading on: Sony has announced another PlayStation Store sale in North America. This one has an Extended Play theme, meaning that it centres on Season Passes, and various double packs. The...

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Breaks a Leg on PS4

We did Nazi this coming

As with Project CARS last week, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood sold best at UK retail on the PlayStation 4 by some margin. According to Chart-Track, 67 per cent of physical copies were sold on Sony's system, compared to just 27 per cent on the Xbox One. The game debuted in second on the UK sales charts, despite it deploying...

News: Grand Theft Auto V Has Sold Five Million Units in the UK

Grand Theft Auto V Has Sold Five Million Units in the UK

Crime wave

We wonder how many hours UK gamers have spent hammering the X button to sprint in Grand Theft Auto V – it's got to be quite a lot, right? We may have reservations about the controls in Rockstar Games' open world opus, but there's no denying the title's overall quality – it's a stunning release that puts almost all other sandboxes to...

PS4, PS3, Vita Prices Plunge in Fab NA Flash Sale

Everything under a fiver

It's the weekend, so we're guessing that you're in the market for some cut price PlayStation Network software. Sony's back in North America with another quite frankly outrageous Flash Sale, spanning the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita. Most of the games available will set you back just $4.80, like the Mass Effect...

April 2015 NPD: PS4 Slumps to Shock Defeat

Xbox One brushes PS4 aside

Well, well, well – this is unexpected. We reported on the PlayStation 3's failure to top the NPD charts for many years, but we've already fallen into a pattern where we expect the PlayStation 4 to lead. However, the numbers coming out of the United States for April 2015 may wake both Sony and ourselves up, as the Xbox...
