Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Ain't Got New Games, But it Keeps Selling Anyway

The never-ending story

Well this is all a bit familiar, isn't it? Once again, the PlayStation 4 has topped the Japanese hardware charts with 22,717 units sold despite the fact that there's been bugger all releasing on the system. The PS4 "Welcome Price" version of last year's Tales of Zestiria was the only current-gen title to make it into the...

PS4 Smashes 3 Million Units Milestone in Japan

Not bad

It's taken a little longer than Sony may have hoped, but the PlayStation 4 has now crossed the three million units milestone in Japan, according to the latest Media Create report. The console launched on 22nd February 2014 in the platform holder's home nation, so it's taken over two years to achieve the target. While that sounds promising...

Check those download lists

Sony has brought a new sale to the US PlayStation Store, but its contents are rather underwhelming.

UK Sales Charts: Ain't No Forcing LEGO Star Wars from Summit

Rey to go

These UK sales charts reports are going to get really boring for a good few weeks now, so strap yourself in and prepare to grit your teeth.

Sith sense

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens has enjoyed the fourth biggest launch in UK LEGO game history and the fourth biggest launch in UK Star Wars game history – the fourth was clearly on its side.

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Refuses to Fall Despite Nintendo Software Dominance

PS4 sales actually increase

The PlayStation 4 is suffering from a real software drought in Japan right now, but Sony's latest console just refuses to budge from the top of the hardware charts.

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Returns to Top Spot Despite Distinct Lack of New Games

Here we are again

It's been another incredibly quiet week for PlayStation in Japan as only one new title, Root Letter, released on Sony's latest system - and those sales figures aren't even worth mentioning. As you'd expect, Dragon Quest Heroes II remains the PS4's most popular release for the third week running, while Overwatch also stuck around...

Must Own PS4 Exclusive Ratchet & Clank Is £20 on the PlayStation Store

Time to go Lombax to the future

A quick break from all of the juicy E3 2016 news: Ratchet & Clank is currently £19.99 on the European PlayStation Store. We had a quick poke around and you can get a physical copy for a few pence cheaper off Amazon, but, y'know, you have to wait for them to deliver it and stuff. Plus you have to pay postage...

May 2016 NPD: Uncharted 4 Helps US Industry Swing Upwards

No comment from Sony again

After April 2016's desperately dire NPD report, the US industry has rebounded in May, with total physical spend up four per cent year-over-year – raking in a handsome $528.6 million. While hardware and accessories declined yet again (by 10 per cent and two per cent respectively), it was software that propelled the...

Sony Reduces the Price of Major PS4 Releases on NA PlayStation Store

Greatest hits?

Sony's dropped the price of four major PlayStation 4 first-party releases on the PlayStation Store to $19.99, perhaps indicating that the MSRP of the must own games has changed. The discounts – to Bloodborne, DriveClub, The Last of Us Remastered, and Until Dawn – don't appear to be fuelled by some kind of promotion, so unless...
