UK Sales Charts: Killzone Re-Enters as Call of Duty Holds

Shadow fall

There's very little to see in the UK sales charts this week, as Call of Duty: Black Ops III earned its tenth top spot since launch. The title is on sale on the PlayStation 4 right now, so is enjoying something of a second wind. It'll be interesting to see whether Street Fighter V can overcome it, but we're expecting the Capcom brawler...

Sony's way out in the lead

Microsoft stopped reporting Xbox One hardware sales recently, suggesting that its Monthly Active Users metric is more important than its flagship format's install base. Fortunately, an EA investor report and a bit of math has enabled us to, for the first time in a long while, see how the Redmond firm's box is performing in...

Sony controls almost 70 per cent of the market

There's a perception perhaps more among American gamers that the PlayStation 4 is only really seeing such wild success right now because Microsoft dropped the ball with its Xbox One at launch.
