Back of the net

Unlike the current Manchester United team, FIFA 14 has managed to make a not-so-dramatic comeback to reclaim its position at the top of the UK sales charts.

Almost 70 per cent of sales come from PS4

Greatness sells

Intense console rivalry may not be healthy or productive, but it sure can be a lot of fun – especially when you're on the winning side.

This Is Why Sony Hasn't Shot the Killzone Franchise in the Orange Eyes

Shadow Fall's sales soar higher than an ISA Cruiser

It’s arguably the most divisive franchise in Sony’s first-party stable, but the Killzone brand has proved itself to be a best-seller time and time again. That’s especially true of PlayStation 4 launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall, which has already exceeded sales in the region of 2.1 million...

Draws Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition next

We’re running out of ways to make these UK sales charts posts interesting. Perhaps we should start talking about the weather, rather than the fact that FIFA 14 has enjoyed its ninth week at the summit of the best sellers list.

Re-release will run like clockwork

If there’s one thing that intrepid archaeologist Lara Croft hates more than busted antiques and those bleeders that inhabit the spooky setting of Yamatai, it’s an inconsistent framerate. Crystal Dynamics’ enjoyable Tomb Raider reboot for the PlayStation 3 served up a likeable slice of survival action, but...

Handheld keeping its head above water

The holidays have come to a conclusion in Japan, but the PlayStation Vita has held on fairly well.
