UK Sales Charts: The Division, Far Cry Primal Put Ubi on Top

Ubiquitous software

Ubisoft is on fire, isn't it? The French publisher tends to quietly go about its business these days, smashing records and releasing games that refuse to be removed from the UK sales charts. Take this week's top ten: The Division is in first for a fourth consecutive week, but Far Cry Primal has quietly climbed into second as...

Japanese Sales Charts: Dark Souls III Does Massive Damage as PS4 Comes Out on Top

Anything but dead

The latest Japanese software charts are in, and Dark Souls III has done incredibly well for itself. The action role-playing game, which isn't officially out here in the West until next month, sold through a very impressive 210,141 copies. That's a fantastic start for From Software's latest adventure, but despite shifting so many...

Consoles still relevant, it seems

Bad news for all those people who predicted consoles were dying out: the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are doing extremely well in the UK. New data released by GAME reveals that the combined total of new-gen consoles sold tallies 5.1 million units – while the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 could only muster 3.5 million...

UK Sales Charts: The Division Causes UFC 2 to Submit

Twisted its arm

The Division is very much the flavour of the month, so it's no surprise to see it fend off EA Sports UFC 2 in the latest UK sales chart, which finished in second. The sequel bettered sales of its predecessor by 53 per cent, but that wasn't anywhere near enough to overcome Ubisoft's looter shooter. Further down, Call of Duty: Black...

Japanese Sales Charts: The Division Puts a Bullet in the Competition on PS4

Critical hit

Tom Clancy's The Division has started life impressively well in Japan, topping the software charts on PlayStation 4. Ubisoft's role-playing shooter hybrid sold through a very healthy 80,703 copies, which was more than enough to place it above the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. Elsewhere, the new Summon Night game...

February 2016 NPD: PS4 Extends Its Lead as US Sales Shrink

Sony's system up year-over-year yet again

We suppose that these NPD reports are starting to get a little bittersweet. As has been the case since launch, the PlayStation 4 is really thriving in the United States, and it's once again managed to register yet another consecutive month of growth. But while the graphs at Sony keep pointing upwards, the...

Japanese Sales Charts: Gundam Breaks into the Top Spot as PS4 and Vita Lead the Way

Meching up the numbers

Ah, nothing like a good Gundam game to shake up the Japanese hardware and software charts, eh? Gundam Breaker 3 blasted into first and second place on PlayStation 4 and Vita respectively, selling through a reasonably impressive 141,219 copies in total - now we just need to hope that the mech-'em-up has found enough success...

PS4 Continues to Smash Sales Records

This time Down Under

While the PlayStation 4's sales aren't as much of a surprise as they once were, it's worth remembering that the system is still smashing sales records around the globe. The latest set of data reveals that Sony's new-gen system accounted for 59 per cent of all home console hardware sales in Australia last year, outselling its...

Japanese Sales Charts: Street Fighter V Falls Short on PS4

Not quite a knockout

We're afraid that it's yet more disappointing news for Street Fighter V, as its opening Japanese sales figures are in. We already know that the brawler hasn't done especially well here in the UK, and it turns out that it hasn't quite set Japan alight, either. Capcom's latest sold through 41,990 copies on PlayStation 4, which...
