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

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...

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...

Japanese Sales Charts: Vita Overtakes PS4 as Not a Single New-Gen Title Enters Top 20

Ouch

The PlayStation 4's steadily slipping down the Japanese charts, as it suffered another sales drop last week. Sony's latest console shifted 15,992 units as it fell into third place, behind the New 3DS LL and the PS Vita. The latter continues to escape store shelves at a solid rate, though, selling through 17,273 units. You can compare the...

PS3 Owners, It's Time to Upgrade to the PS4

Ubisoft's moving on

There are still lots of people clinging to the fact that the PlayStation 3 has a much larger install base than the PlayStation 4, but the reality is that there are many, many more active users on Sony's super machine. Ubisoft thinks so anyway, as it's ditching development on last-gen systems – well, aside from the odd casual...

UK Sales Charts: Project CARS Roars to Pole Position on PS4

Racing ahead

Crowd funded racing game Project CARS has pulled ahead of the pack, scoring the first simulation podium position since GRID 2 all the way back in 2013. The title sold best on the PlayStation 4 – which is not especially surprising considering the lack of similar games on Sony's system – and finished in front of familiar favourites...

PS4 Sales Pass 2 Million Units in the UK

Celebrate good times

Sales of the PlayStation 4 have now surpassed a staggering two million units in the UK, according to a report published by MCV. The console hit the one million units milestone in the region shortly before the holiday rush last year, which means that it's effectively doubled its tally in record time. In fact, the system's selling...

UK Sales Charts: Mortal Kombat X Marks the Top Spot

Fatality attraction

Despite being a Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK, there were no major software releases. This has, of course, resulted in Mortal Kombat X holding onto its position at the top of the territory's sales charts for the third successive week, which means that it only needs to fight off Project CARS in order to match Battlefield...
