Japanese Sales Charts: Vita Remains Viable As PS4 Prepares Itself for Rebirth

Calm before the storm

The PlayStation 4's taken another tumble as its Japanese price drop nears, selling through just over 4000 units.

UK Sales Charts: Destiny: The Taken King Takes the Crown

More than half the copies sold on PS4

PS4 Freebie Grow Home Is Ubisoft's Fastest Ever PlayStation Download

BUD for you

It won the Vote to Play poll on the PlayStation 4, but there's more good news for Grow Home's botanical bot BUD, as the platformer has become Ubisoft's fastest ever download on PlayStation formats. The game exceeded 1.5 million "sales" within its first week – but this success can of course be attributed to the fact that it was given...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Numbers Drop Like a Rock Just Two Weeks After Metal Gear Solid V

Falling without style

Well, there goes that. At this point, it's abundantly clear that the PlayStation 4 is currently incapable of maintaining any kind of momentum in its homeland, as Sony's latest console saw its sales plummet by around 35,000 units. The new-gen machine saw a boost in popularity following the launch of Metal Gear Solid V: The...

UK Sales Charts: Tearaway Unfolded Flops Like Wet Paper

Paper cut

Perhaps the PlayStation Vita's miniscule install base wasn't Tearaway's problem after all, as Sony just can't seem to get this property to connect. PlayStation 4 remix Tearaway Unfolded – which released in the UK last week amid widespread critical acclaim – limped into the UK sales charts, finishing in 33rd position. Considering...

UK Sales Charts: Metal Gear Solid V Takes a Chopper to the Top

72% of sales were on PS4

Who didn't see this one coming? Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has tiptoed straight into number one here in the UK following its launch on the 1st September. Equally unsurprising is that 72 per cent of the stealth-'em-up's sales were on the PlayStation 4. However, Kojima's latest didn't sell quite well enough to beat...

Gran Turismo 6 Sales Linger at the Back of the Pack

Slow coach

You could argue that Sony supported the PlayStation 3 too long. Sony Santa Monica and Naughty Dog both released big games for the console during the year of the PlayStation 4's release, and the likes of Gran Turismo 6 deployed after the new-gen device. Unsurprisingly, that decision had a negative impact on the latter's sales, as ongoing...

Shock scare
