  • UK Sales Charts Grand Theft Auto V Hijacks the Top Spot

    Rockstar energy

    Can you believe this? Grand Theft Auto V, the game which first released all the way back in 2013, is currently top of the UK sales charts in 2017. The popular open world affair managed to steal this week's crown from Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – a truly amazing achievement. Familiar faces FIFA 17 and Battlefield 1 rounded out...

  • News PS4 Wins the All-Important December NPD

    Not a massive surprise

    After a handful of months losing out to the Xbox One in the NPD, the PlayStation 4 has restored normal order, by winning the all-important December report. To be honest, this shouldn't come as a massive surprise considering the ridiculous numbers that Sony posted over the holiday period, but there was a chance that Microsoft...

  • News PS4 Has Been the World's Best Selling Console Since 2014

    Hat trick

    Sony revealed the Glacier White PlayStation 4 for Europe this week, and in the trailer included a subtle reminder that the console has been top dog globally three years in a row now. According to the platform holder, the system sold the most units worldwide in 2014, 2015, and 2016. We could kinda already infer this inform

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Keeps a Healthy Lead as Final Fantasy XV Nears 1 Million

    Fantasy's almost a reality

    There's not too much going on in the latest Japanese hardware and software charts, but it's nice to see both the PlayStation 4 and Vita ticking along rather nicely. Sony's current-gen console has enjoyed a relatively healthy run of late, and it's sold another 78,927 units last week. Given that the PS4 averaged around...

  • News Final Fantasy XV Ships Over 6 Million Copies, Digital Sales Included

    Noct bad

    Square Enix has revealed that Final Fantasy XV has shipped over six million units worldwide. That figure includes copies shipped to retailers and digital sales, meaning that we don't quite know how many units the game has sold through to the public. As we always say, though, retailers generally aren't in the habit of buying stock that...

  • UK Sales Charts Ain't No Stopping the Call of Duty

    Nothin' to see here

    It may be a New Year, but some things never change: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has remained at the top of the UK sales charts for the… We've lost count, but it's been a long time now. The game fought off fierce competition from the usual suspects, with FIFA 17 and Grand Theft Auto V coming in just behind. Battlefield 1,...

  • News More PS4 Bargains Have Been Added to EU's Ace PlayStation Store Sale

    How low can you go?

    Sony's huge January sale has been a huge hit on the European PlayStation Store – and it's actually just got bigger. New additions include The Last Guardian for £29.99, Diablo III: Reaper of Souls for £15.99, and Mirror's Edge Catalyst for a ridiculously low £8.99 – though you'll only get the latter for that price if...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Ends 2016 On Top

    Last but not least

    The final Japanese hardware and software charts of 2016 are in, and the PlayStation 4 has reclaimed its place at the top of the former. Sony's current-gen console jumped Nintendo's New 3DS LL, shifting a relatively healthy 73,421 units. That means the PS4 manged to sell through almost 1.8 million units in Japan last year. Not an...

  • News Sony Reveals The Most Downloaded PS4 Games of 2016

    Rocket to the top

    As is tradition, Sony has revealed the PlayStation Network's most downloaded games of the last year. Topping the 2016 charts in both North America and Europe was the seemingly eternal Rocket League, which originally launched back in 2015. That's an impressive run of form from the simple but stupidly effective title. Battlefield...

  • Talking Point Will Sony Really Let the Uncharted Series Rest?

    Hang up your half-tuck

    Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has sold 8.7 million copies globally since it launched less than a year ago. That is a staggering figure when you consider that the game is barely six months old, and will continue to post strong sales through the remainder of the generation. But it does pose a very important question: can Sony...

  • News PS4 Shifted Over 50 Million Games Globally Over the Holidays

    Up from 35 million last year

    There's been a lot of talk about poor software sales this holiday, but the PlayStation 4 is doing its best to keep the numbers up it seems. Alongside its install base announcement, Sony revealed overnight that it moved 50.4 million pieces of software over the Christmas period, which spans the tail-end of November throu

  • News PS4 Sales Top 53 Million, Sold Through a Massive 6.2 Million Units Over the Holidays

    Nothing stops this train

    The PlayStation 4 is now looking ahead to its fourth year on the market, but it shows now signs of slowing down in terms of sales. Taking to the stage at the company's CES keynote, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai revealed that the current-gen console has topped 53 million worldwide sales. Our last update on PS4 sales came before...

  • News Uncharted 4's Insane Global Sales Secure Series' Juggernaut Status

    Sic Parvis Magna

    Remember when Uncharted was the scrappy underdog in a world dominated by Halo and Gears of War? No more. Sony has announced today that Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has sold over 8.7 million copies globally to date. That's a staggering figure when you consider that the title has only just enjoyed its first holiday, and will probably...

  • Talking Point Has Holiday 2016 Devalued New Games?

    Cheap as chips

    Booting up a £19.99 copy of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare over the Christmas break, we couldn't help but ponder whether this holiday gone has seriously devalued new games. All games get price drops eventually, of course – some sooner than others – but this feels different. On the European PlayStation Store right now you can...

  • News PS4 Physical Game Sales Increase As UK Industry Suffers Blow

    Overall sales down 13.4 per cent

    Worryingly, the PlayStation 4 was the only home console to see sales of physical software in the UK increase year-over-year in 2016. The Nintendo 3DS also built upon its previous year's tally, but every other platform shrunk. That's resulted in a 13.4 per cent decline in game sales compared to 2015 in Britain, with...

  • UK Sales Charts Infinite Success for Call of Duty on PS4

    Price cuts do the business

    Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has spent practically the entirety of the Christmas period at the top of the UK sales charts. Activision may have needed to slash the price of its latest first-person shooter as low as £19.99 across the country, but it's done the trick, as the title managed to top the British best sellers...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4, PS4 Pro Hold Steady as Gundam Chases Pokémon

    The G generation

    The new Pokémon games dominated the Japanese charts last time around, and unsurprisingly, they're at it again. Nothing's going to stop Nintendo's juggernaut for at least another week or so, but the latest Gundam title at least boosted into view with some relatively strong opening numbers on both Vita and PlayStation 4. And before...

  • News PS4 Leads the Way as Cyber Monday Explodes in the US

    PS4 likely to come out on top for November

    When it comes to online sales, Cyber Monday was pretty darn crazy this year. According to I4U, yesterday was the biggest online sales day in history, with $3.39 billion being spent in the United States. We guess that people really like rock bottom prices, huh? The good news for Sony is that the...

  • News The PS4 Absolutely Killed It in the UK Last Week

    The best the console has sold since launch

    The PlayStation 4 has been selling very strongly ever since it launched back in 2013 - and it isn't showing signs of stopping any time soon. According to Eurogamer, Sony's latest system sold incredibly well in the UK last week, with numbers being the highest that the console has seen since its initial...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Pokémon Rules the Sun and Moon

    And, honestly, the stars right now as well

    As expected, Pokémon has attacked the Japanese sales charts with all the force of several suns and moons combined. The game sold over 1.5 million copies in the Land of the Rising Sun, and helped seriously propel Nintendo 3DS sales as a result. This means that the PlayStation 4 slipped down the hardware...

  • News Ubisoft Hopes Watch Dogs 2 Has a Long Sales Tail

    Publisher weighs in on woof launch

    Watch Dogs 2 has got off to an atrocious start, selling some 300,000 units less than its predecessor at launch in the UK alone. So bad are the numbers that they've prompted publisher Ubisoft to comment, with the firm wagging its tail in the direction of the release's critical response as evidence that it may yet...

  • Talking Point Why Are Fall's Biggest Blockbusters Flopping?

    Signs of decline

    It's not been a good few months if you pay attention to the UK sales charts. There have been a handful of success stories: Mafia III, against all odds, exceeded expectations – while Battlefield 1 has done well for itself. But by and large, it's been a quarter of catastrophic sequels: Titanfall 2? Down. Gears of War 4? Down. Call...

  • UK Sales Charts Ubisoft Will Be Hacked Off with Watch Dogs 2's Performance

    Series sees massive decline

    Are you noticing a trend yet? Watch Dogs 2 is the latest high-profile sequel this holiday to fall significantly short of expectations, with its predecessor selling several times more units than the new arrival. Chart-Track does not publish sales figures, but Ubisoft's latest charted below Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare,...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Pro Launch Provides a Huge Boost for PS4

    Gone Pro

    It would seem that Japan has taken to the recently released PS4 Pro rather well, as sales of Sony's system saw a significant boost last week. PlayStation 4 numbers rocketed by around 60,000 units, hitting a total of 92,344 sales, which is a very similar increase to the jump that we saw when the PS4 Slim arrived on store shelves several...

  • UK Sales Charts Dishonored 2 Launch Sales Fall Short of Predecessor

    Blink and you'll miss it

    A worrying pattern is emerging this holiday: Dishonored 2 is the latest UK launch to fall short of its predecessor's sales – and we'll be shocked if Watch Dogs 2 isn't next. Bethesda's stealth opus sold 38 per cent copies fewer than the original back in 2012 – and that's despite it being a much more established brand...

  • News PS4 Sales Triple in UK Following Pro Launch

    Pro-ductive

    As reported by MCV, the launch of the PS4 Pro last week had a positive impact on sales of Sony's current-gen console. In the UK, PS4 sales tripled, jumping a rather impressive 204 per cent week over week. 65 per cent of those sales came courtesy of the new Pro model. We imagine that it'll be a similar story in most other regions, too...

  • News PS4 Slumps to Yet Another NPD Defeat in October

    Mind the gap

    After years of being on top, the PlayStation 4 has now slumped to its fourth NPD defeat in a row – a trend that would probably be worrying Sony if its install base wasn't growing at an accelerated rate globally. The console lost the monthly US hardware contest for October, meaning that it's been a little while since the Japanese...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Rockets to the Top on PS4

    Dragon Ball XenoVerse powers up in second

    Call of Duty isn't just a sales juggernaut here in the West; the series has been selling reasonably well for years in Japan, and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is looking to continue that trend. Activision's latest blockbuster entered the most recent Japanese software charts in first place, selling through...

  • News PlayStation VR Is Now Sold Out at Amazon UK Until 2017

    Virtual insanity

    If you were hoping to snag a PlayStation VR headset from Amazon UK prior to Christmas… Well, don't even bother trying: the site has exhausted all of its stock until Early 2017. While it temporarily said a similar thing about the PlayStation 4 Pro, it appears it's dead serious about Sony's virtual reality accessory – the...

  • UK Sales Charts Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Registers Near 50 Per Cent Launch Decline

    Crash landing

    First, the good news for Activision shareholders: Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has comfortably secured the second biggest UK launch of the year, falling just short of the week one numbers for FIFA 17. And now the bad news: the game has registered a 48.4 per cent decline compared to its predecessor, Call of Duty: Black Ops III...

  • News PS4 Pro Sold Out Until After Christmas, Says Amazon UK

    Dishonored bundle still available, though

    Update (17:00): The standard PS4 Pro appears to be back in stock over on Amazon UK. We assume that the online retailer made a mistake with the listing earlier today. Still, a rather big error to make! Original story: If you're on the market for a PS4 Pro before Christmas and you love Amazon to bits, we...

  • News Mafia III Is Somehow 2K Games' Fastest Selling Release

    4.5 million copies shipped in one week

    You know those occasions where a bit of news filters out and you almost have to read it twice in order to properly parse it? Yeah, this is one of those times: Mafia III has become 2K Games' fastest selling game of all time, outpacing franchises such as BioShock, NBA 2K, and Borderlands. To be honest, we're as...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Sword Art Online Cuts Through World of Final Fantasy on PS4

    Berserk, Titanfall 2, and Mafia III also arrive

    The latest Japanese charts are in, and they make for relatively interesting reading thanks to an influx of new releases on Sony platforms. To start things off, Sword Art Online: Hollow Realization did pretty well for itself in first place, shifting a respectable 70,871 copies on PlayStation 4. The...

  • News Sony: PlayStation VR Sales Are Very Much on Track

    VRy good

    Loving your PlayStation VR headset but worried it may be bombing? Well, firstly, as far as we can tell, the unit has more or less completely sold through its initial allocation, so it's currently a case of Sony keeping stocks supplied. But if you needed any reassurance, it's revealed in its latest financial report that sales of the device...

  • News PS4 Rapidly Approaches 50 Million Unit Milestone

    Ain't got far to go

    It's looking increasingly likely that the PlayStation 4 will hit the 50 million unit milestone by the end of the year, as Sony has released its financial results for the quarter ending 30th September, revealing that it shipped a whopping 3.9 million units during the period, putting the platform's install base at 47.4 million...

  • News Skyrim Scores Second-Best UK Debut in Series History on PS4

    Behind only, well, Skyrim

    While it's not been a great day for Titanfall 2, Bethesda must be delighted with the sales of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. The remaster – which entered in second position on the UK sales charts – secured the second-best British debut in The Elder Scrolls series' storied history, only losing out to the,...

  • UK Sales Charts Titanfall 2 Fails to Make an Impact on PS4

    FPS flops

    Despite being billed as one of the best shooter campaigns in years, Titanfall 2 has struggled to make an impact on the UK sales charts – even with the franchise making its PlayStation 4 debut. Early estimates show that the title struggled to sell half of what the original managed on the Xbox One alone, though the tracking period does...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Battlefield 1 Blasts into First Place on PS4

    Sony's console still on top

    Battlefield 1's debut is the big talking point of the latest Japanese sales charts, with EA's World War shooter claiming the top spot of the software list. The historical foray sold through a relatively impressive 113,081 copies on PlayStation 4. Aside from NBA 2K17 entering in sixth, though, it's been another quiet...

  • News PlayStation VR Has Sold Out on Amazon in UK and US

    Best Buy, Walmart, and Target also experiencing some shortages

    Whether you're a fan of PlayStation VR or not, you have to admit that Sony's venture into virtual reality is selling very well. On both the US and UK Amazon pages, the headset'

  • UK Sales Charts Battlefield 1 Beats Out Combined Week One Sales of Predecessors

    Battlefield won

    Battlefield 1 launched strongly in the UK, outselling the combined week one tally of both Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline. While this is impressive, it's perhaps worth remembering that Battlefield 4's sales got off to a slightly slower start than usual due to it launching prior to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One...

  • News PlayStation VR Shifted Over 50,000 Units at Launch in Japan

    VReasonable

    PlayStation VR got off to a solid if unspectacular start in Japan, with the futuristic facemask shifting 51,644 units during its first week on sale. Reports coming out of the East suggest that the accessory is totally sold out, so this is likely the sum of what Sony shipped to its home region. PlayStation VR Worlds moved a...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Tomb Raider Leaps into the Top 5 as PS4 Stays Strong

    Only one VR title makes it into top 20

    Rise of the Tomb Raider jumped straight into the top five of the latest Japanese software charts on PlayStation 4, selling through 21,152 copies in second place. Not a huge amount, but it's really the only new PlayStation entry worth talking about. Well, aside from PlayStation VR Worlds, which sold through...

  • UK Sales Charts PlayStation VR Titles Attack Top 40

    FIFA 17 still top of the league, though

    A whopping eight PlayStation VR games entered the UK sales charts this week, with PlayStation VR Worlds placing the highest in seventh position. Until Dawn: Rush of Blood finished ninth, while RIGS: Mechanized Combat League, EVE: Valkyrie, and DriveClub VR finished in 12th, 20th, and 23rd place respectively...

  • News PS4 Slumps to Third Successive NPD Defeat

    Choppy waters

    Batten the hatches, spit in Shawn Layden's face, and curse Kaz Hirai's complacency: Sony failed to defeat the Xbox One in the September NPD, meaning that's three times in a row now that the PlayStation 4 has not been the best-selling system in the United States. We suppose after three straight years on top, it had to give everyone...

  • News Sony Forecasting 'Hundreds of Thousands' of PlayStation VR Sales

    Platform holder increasing production capacity

    Sony's said that it expects to sell "hundreds of thousands" of PlayStation VR headsets at launch, which may make the company the de facto virtual reality market leader by the end of the day. Sony Europe chief Jim Ryan was speaking with CNBC, and explained that there's been "significant" interest in...

  • News Japan Lines Up for PlayStation VR Ahead of Launch

    As stocks start to sell out worldwide

    You can always judge the interest in a product in Japan by the size of its lines, and it looks like PlayStation VR has captured the attention of the tech enthusiasts in the East. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that many stores have been sold out of the headset since as early as June, with one man from...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Enjoys Another Week at the Top

    Holding steady

    Unless you really like Monster Hunter spin-offs, there's not really much to talk about when it comes to the latest Japanese sales charts. Capcom's new Nintendo 3DS title unsurprisingly topped the software list, while the only fresh PlayStation release to make the top 20 was BlazBlue: Central Fiction. The stylish fighting game sequel...

  • UK Sales Charts Mafia III Crushes Predecessor's Sales Record Like Candy

    An offer you couldn't refuse

    Perhaps the Vinnie Jones promotion paid off after all, as Mafia III has soared to near the top of the UK sales charts, registering a 58.7 per cent improvement over its predecessor. Unsurprisingly with that kind of stat, the open world crime title secured the biggest launch week in the series' history thus far – and...

  • News Persona 5 Is Three Weeks Old and It's Already Atlus' Best Selling Game Ever in Japan

    JPRG approaches half a million sales

    According to the latest Media Create sales charts, Persona 5 currently sits at 427,795 copies sold across PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. Not quite Yo-kai Watch numbers, but still reasonably impressive given that Atlus titles have never been sales juggernauts. Even more impressive is that Persona 5 is now...

  • Japanese Sales Charts FIFA 17 Tops the Software Table on PS4

    Through on goal

    FIFA 17 had a sort-of-decent opening week in Japan, selling through 57,012 copies on PlayStation 4 and topping the software charts. For the sake of comparing, PES 2017: Pro Evolution Soccer currently sits at 90,575 copies on Sony's current-gen console, so with a few more weeks under its belt, EA's latest entry could end up matching...

  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 17 Runs Away with the League in October

    Champione! Champione!

    Manchester City may not have been able to solidify their early season dominance last week, dropping points against Celtic in the Champions League and losing to Tottenham in the Premier League – but FIFA 17 has managed what Pep Guardiola couldn't. The soccer sim, despite being considered inferior to this year's PES 2017: Pro...

  • News PS4 Slim Sales Off to a Slow Start in the UK

    A wake-up call?

    Sony's dominating this generation globally, but it's just starting to receive a few reminders that it can't sit twiddling its thumbs in the UK and the USA, where Microsoft is staging a bit of an onslaught right now. To be fair, the company's position is not in jeopardy, but MCV reports that the PS4 controlled just 19 per cent of...

  • News Amazon UK Sells FIFA 17, LEGO Star Wars PS4 Bundles for £149

    How low can you go?

    You may have caught our earlier story about some frankly insane PlayStation 4 offers, and now Amazon UK has thrown its not-so insignificant hat into the ring. The mega online retailer is selling the 500GB PS4 alongside either FIFA 17 or LEGO S

  • News UK PS4 Prices Plunge Lower Than £150 with FIFA 17

    Insane savings as stores clear stock

    With the PlayStation 4 Slim now on store shelves, there's a bit of a price war going on in the UK as retailers attempt to clear out stock of the old model. At the time of typing, ShopTo will sell you a 500GB CUH-1200 unit alongside FIFA 17 for… £139.85! Smyths Toys is doing a similar thing in-store from...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Tops Hardware as Lifetime Numbers Pass Wii U

    Up and over

    Following the PlayStation 4's emphatic return to the top of the charts thanks to the introduction of the new Slim model, Sony's current-gen console hit another milestone last week when it surpassed the Wii U's lifetime sales in Japan. To date, Nintendo's console has shifted 3,265,329 units, while the PS4 has now sold through 3,267,243...

  • UK Sales Charts BioShock: The Collection Is Still the Big Daddy

    Ayn achievement

    A lack of new releases mean that BioShock: The Collection maintained its place at the summit of the UK sales charts this week, fending off PES 2017: Pro Evolution Soccer for a second term. Destiny: The Collection was the only new entry in fourth, with most fans of that series locked into the PlayStation Store these days. Overwatch...

  • 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,...

  • News 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 BioShock: The Collection Gets Wet at the Summit

    Splicer to see you, to see you Splicer

    2K Games asked you to kindly purchase BioShock: The Collection on the PlayStation 4, and you responded diligently, with the title topping the all-formats charts in the UK this week. The critically acclaimed PES 2017: Pro Evolution Soccer kicked off in second, and scored over 70 per cent of its sales on Sony's...

  • News August 2016 NPD: Madden NFL 17, No Man's Sky Top Software Charts

    Hello, games

    Oh look, it's the NPD report. You may have noticed that we skipped coverage of this over the past couple of months. Apologies for that, but the NPD has changed the way it makes this information available. We used to get platform ordering for software sales and all sorts of other intel, but that can only be accessed by paying members...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Hits Rock Bottom as Slim Approaches

    One more time

    The PlayStation 4 Slim launches tomorrow in Japan alongside Persona 5, meaning that regular PlayStation 4 sales have fallen off a cliff. The current-gen console managed to shift just 560 units last week, with the PlayStation 3 actually selling more than double that. All eyes are now on next Wednesday's charts, as they'll feature the...

  • 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 Overwatch Gets Play of the Game as It Jumps Back to Number 1

    Uncharted 4 swings back into top 5, too

    It's largely a case of the usual suspects when it comes to the latest UK software charts, with Overwatch reclaiming the top spot for the fourth time in its life thanks to a recent price drop. According to Chart-Track - who compiles these charts - Overwatch has now spent more weeks at number one than any...

    Better, but not by much

    You wait weeks for a steady stream of PlayStation 4 titles to release in Japan, and then four come along at once. That's good news, right? Well, it's obviously better than nothing, but when we actually take a step back and look at these latest software numbers, we find ourselves struggling to pick out any real positives...

  • 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...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Tales of Berseria Plunders the Top Spot on PS4

    Another tale to tell

    Well would you look at that, a reasonably important PlayStation 4 release has made it to the top of the Japanese software charts - and it's about bloody time. Bandai Namco's Tales of Berseria entered the charts with sales of 173,537 copies on Sony's current-gen console and 76,186 copies on PS3. At first glance, those figures...

  • 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...

  • News 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 Ratchet & Clank Stumbles into Top 5 on PS4

    Lombax in action

    There's only one real talking point when it comes to the latest Japanese sales charts: PlayStation 4 exclusive Ratchet & Clank entered in third place, selling through a kind-of-okay 27,534 copies. Funnily enough, the superb looking action-platformer was the only new title to to make it into the top 20. On the hardware side of...

  • UK Sales Charts No Man's Sky Is Sony's Second Biggest PS4 Launch Ever

    Sky's the limit

    Wait, what? No Man's Sky has become Sony's second biggest PlayStation 4 launch of all time, with only Uncharted 4: A Thief's End performing better during its first week in Britain. The game outsold Bloodborne to become the fastest selling new intellectual property published by the platform holder, and was fifth on the list of new...

  • 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...
