  • News Sony's Still Bleeding Money, But PS4's in Beast Mode

    Marathon sprint

    The reason behind Microsoft’s temporary Xbox One price drop is looking clearer by the minute: Sony has now shipped 13.5 million PlayStation 4 consoles worldwide – and it hasn’t even been out a year yet. The company added 3.3 million units to the system’s total tally in the quarter spanning July to September, boosting game...

  • News Who Let the Dogs Out? Watch Dogs has Shipped 9 Million Copies

    Barking mad

    Love it or hate it, Watch Dogs has been a huge success for Ubisoft. The new property, which sees you hacking your way through Chicago as a gruff cyber-hero out for revenge, was well received by both critics and consumers alike, and in the publisher's latest financial report, it's announced that the game has shipped nine million copies...

  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 15 Fights Off Minecraft for Fifth Week at Summit

    The invincibles

    There’s no stopping EA Sports’ soccer simulation it seems, as FIFA 15 is currently enjoying yet another week at the summit of the UK sales charts. The footie favourite has sat at the top of the league for five weeks now, and is unlikely to budge next week either. Of course, we’re sure that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare at the...

  • UK Sales Charts The Evil Within Can't Shoo FIFA 15 from Summit

    Ball boo

    How many scalps has EA Sports’ soccer sim claimed in the UK sales charts now? FIFA 15 has occupied Chart-Track’s top spot for several weeks since launch, and nothing appears capable of unsettling it – not even Shinji Mikami’s spooky survival horror, The Evil Within. Bethesda’s blockbuster instead finished in second this time, one...

  • News September NPD: Sony Silences Analysts as PS4 Sales Surge

    Nine month winning streak rolls on

    Michael Pachter appears to enjoy pushing gamers’ buttons, so we doubt that he’ll care too much about the egg on his face right now; either way, his prediction that the PlayStation 4’s winning streak would end in September was, well, wrong. Sony actually managed a ninth month atop the NPD sales charts, with

  • News Pachter: PS4's American Winning Streak Ended in September

    Analyst predicts an upset

    Sony was always expected to start this generation on the front foot globally, as the PlayStation brand simply has much more worldwide appeal than its closest competitor. However, the fact that the PlayStation 4 has effortlessly won major markets such as the UK and North America will be a real concern for the folks at...

  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 15 Brushes Aside Alien: Isolation and DriveClub

    League leaders

    FIFA 15 is a bit like a Jose Mourinho team at the minute: stubborn and utterly unbeatable. Despite the release of Alien: Isolation and DriveClub last week, neither could unsettle the soccer sim from its perch at the top of the UK sales charts. The former debuted in second, which may disappoint publisher SEGA a little seeing as it...

  • UK Sales Charts None Shall Pass FIFA 15, As Shadow of Mordor Enters in Second

    Lord of the league

    FIFA 15 fought off its first big competitor for the title this week, remaining at the summit of the UK sales charts – despite the excellent Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor deploying on Friday. The Lord of the Rings spin-off entered in second, netting the biggest ever British launch for a game based on the fantasy franchise. The...

  • News Will the PS4 Get a Price Cut Any Time Soon?

    Probably not just yet

    As we know, the PlayStation 4 is selling extraordinarily well – but things are even more positive for Sony behind closed doors. Last year, the platform holder noted that it had designed its next-gen device to be much more price competitive than the PlayStation 3, and it sounds like it’s feeling the fruits of that labour...

  • News PlayStation Hardware Sales Leave Xbox in the Dust

    PS4 reverses firm's fortunes

    It’s no real secret that the PlayStation 4 is a runaway success, and that’s been reflected by Sony’s latest hardware sales figures. In the platform holder’s most recent financial report, the company claims that its gaming business has seen a 95.7 per cent increase in revenue year-over-year, with the division...

  • UK Sales Charts Sandbox Smash Watch Dogs Simply Won't Stop Yapping

    Woof woof

    With the release calendar looking emptier than a hipster’s apartment in central London, Watch Dogs has managed yet another week at the summit of the UK sales charts. While the open world epic faced increased competition from the likes of FIFA 14 and Call of Duty: Ghosts, it’s probably going to remain at the top until The Last of Us...

  • News June NPD: PS4 Brushes Aside Xbox One Price Drop for Sixth Month at Summit

    Too easy

    After supposedly getting battered in the May NPD sales report, all eyes have been on Microsoft to see whether the newly Kinect-less Xbox One can rebound. Unfortunately for the Redmond-based firm, despite doubling its sales, it hasn’t bounced back to the degree that it may have hoped, as

  • UK Sales Charts Watch Dogs Reconnects with the Top Spot

    Hanging on the telephone

    After a few weeks with shoddy signal, Ubisoft’s sandbox smash Watch Dogs has re-established a connection with the summit of the UK sales charts. The title had been obstructed by Sniper Elite III, which has slipped into second position this week. FIFA 14 mirrored the Netherlands in third, while Wolfenstein: The New Order...

  • News Sony's Current Crop of Consoles Have Sold Over 100 Million Units

    That's the PS4, PS3, and Vita combined

    Sony’s current flock of flagship formats are selling pretty strongly, if a new promotional video released by the platform holder is any indication. In the corporate clip – which focuses on the firm’s line of licensed peripherals and accessories – the company claims that combined sales of the...

  • UK Sales Charts PS4 Testicle Remover Sniper Elite III Tops

    Nuts

    505 Games’ morbidly graphic long-range shooter Sniper Elite III has enjoyed a second week at the top of the UK sales charts, putting a bullet in fellow next-gen rival Watch Dogs. Despite being available on last-gen systems as well, both games sold best on Sony’s latest machine, evidencing the commanding position that the Japanese giant...

  • Japanese Sales Charts inFAMOUS Fails to Jump Start PS4 as Wii U Overtakes

    System needs a jolt

    Project Beast may prove pivotal to the PlayStation 4 in its home region, as nothing is stopping the system’s slide at the minute. Despite exclusive inFAMOUS: Second Son deploying in the East last week, the game did little to supercharge the system’s sales, as it accrued a lowly 7,543 units according to the latest data...

  • News Watch Dogs Uploads Fastest First Day Sales in Ubisoft History

    Aiden know how that's possible

    All of those trailers appear to have done the business for Ubisoft, as Watch Dogs has become the fastest selling title in the French firm’s storied history. Just let that sink in for a second: during its first 24 hours on sale, more people have purchased Aiden Pearce’s inaugural escapade than any other game in the...

  • UK Sales Charts Wolfenstein: The New Order Targets the Top Spot

    Time to 'Stein

    Bad news, Nazis – B.J. Blazkowicz is coming for you. The seasoned superstar has helped Wolfenstein: The New Order Reich the summit of the UK sales charts this week, with the MachineGames developed release securing the second biggest launch of the year thus far. Bethesda may want to enjoy that, because we suspect that Watch Dogs...

  • News The PS4's Selling Like Crazy Everywhere Apart from Japan

    It's under 9,000

    Despite strong competition in the West, the PlayStation 4 is posting some pretty extraordinary figures at the moment. The system has been consistently outselling the Xbox One on Microsoft’s home turf all year, while reports suggest that it’s also flying off the shelves in Europe. However,

  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 14 Tops, Minecraft PS3 Digs Deep

    Brickin' it

    The release of Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition at retail outlets last week means that Mojang’s mega creation is likely to occupy two slots in the top ten moving forwards, as Sony’s version tussles with Microsoft’s for sales superiority. The blockbusters finished third and fourth respectively this time around, with PlayStation 4...

  • News The PS4 Version of MLB 14 The Show Is the Fastest Selling Game in the Franchise

    The bases are loaded

    It seems that everyone wants to be taken to a ball game, as sales of annual baseball sim MLB 14 The Show on the PlayStation 4 have seen a massive boost. Impressively, the game's week one numbers are up a staggering 40 per cent compared with previous entries in the franchise. What's more, the bat-'em-up's multiplayer mode has...

  • News April NPD: PS4 Outsells Xbox One for Fourth Consecutive Month

    The thirst is real

    Strong sales of Xbox family semi-exclusive Titanfall did little to stop the PlayStation 4’s momentum in April, as the system registered a fourth consecutive month at the top of the hardware charts in the United States. While firm figures aren’t available at the time of typing, research firm NPD reports that the Japanese...

  • News Sony: The Economics Don't Work for Blockbuster Vita Games

    Gulp

    Despite seeing a strong year-over-year improvement in Japan, the PlayStation Vita continues to find itself in a weak position overseas. The system is incredibly popular among the few that own it – culminating in an outrageous software attach rate – but it’s failed to break into the mainstream, prompting major publishers to back away and...

  • UK Sales Charts The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Swings a Little Lower

    Hanging loose

    A lack of new releases means that this was another uneventful week for the UK sales charts, as semi-Xbox One exclusive Titanfall reclaimed its place at the summit. FIFA 14 dribbled into second on the last day of the Premier League, while former frontrunner The Amazing Spider-Man 2 wrapped itself up in third position. Elsewhere,

  • News This Analyst Thinks the PS4 Will Sell 51 Million Units by 2016

    Fatality

    There’s no doubt that the PlayStation 4 is doing very well for itself, selling over seven million units at last count, and likely working its way towards another major milestone as we type. However, writing as part of its latest console forecast, the International Data Corporation predicts that even better times await the Japanese...

  • UK Sales Charts The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Swings to the Summit

    Save this city

    Not even our astute spider sense could predict that Activision’s movie tie-in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would swing straight to the top of the UK sales charts, but that’s exactly what it’s done. Aspiring journalist Peter Parker’s alter-ego wrapped a web right around former frontrunner Titanfall, proving that you don’t need to...
