Analyst: PS4 Has Slight Sales Advantage Over Xbox One in North America

On top of the world

Sony Computer Entertainment America president Jack Tretton may be spending his first full day back in the office hanging up the bunting, as reports suggest that the PlayStation 4 managed to close out 2013 in front of the Xbox One in North America – despite the platform holder launching in more territories than its closest...

Grand Theft Auto V Puts a Big Bullet Hole in the UK's Largest Entertainment Properties

Running away with the cash

In a shock more sizeable than the kind that comes from a souped-up defibrillator, Chart-Track has revealed that Rockstar Games’ controversial open world epic Grand Theft Auto V was the UK’s best selling entertainment product of 2013. Moving an impressive 3.67 million units, the sequel beat out the Blu-ray and DVD...

Whoa, the PS4 Sold Over Half a Million Units in the UK Last Year

Happy New Year

It's a new year, which means that it's time for unachievable resolutions, mounting guilt due to monstrous backlogs, and, assuming that you went to a good party, ear splitting headaches. It also means looking back over what was an utterly stupendous year for our beloved platform holder. And what better way to get started than with a...

PS4 Launch Improves UK PS Vita Sales by 68 Per Cent

All according to keikaku

There’s no doubt that the PlayStation Vita has struggled to capture the commercial attention that the pretty little portable probably deserves. While the handheld did battle several software droughts right around its launch, it's accrued a rather large library over the past year or so, and is more affordable than ever to...

Running away with the lead

At this point, Sony’s next generation system is stomping the Xbox One for fun. Not content with outselling Microsoft’s machine in the November NPDs, the PlayStation 4 has also come out on top in a British retail website study.

Tearaway trots back into sight

We’re confident that we could fabricate the contents of our weekly UK sales charts posts at this point, and no one would even bat an eyelid. Once again, last week’s top titles included Call of Duty: Ghosts, FIFA 14, and Battlefield 4. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes was arguably the biggest surprise

November NPD: PS4 Draws First Blood in North American Console War

Turning the tables

Sony has staged an assault on Microsoft's home territory, and topped the NPD charts with the PlayStation 4.

Japanese Sales Charts: PS Vita TV's Audience Shrinks Again

Gran Turismo 6 takes pole position

Sony may be considering ways in which it can broadcast PS Vita TV overseas, but we reckon those plans may be shelved soon if the diminutive device doesn’t pick up the pace in its home territory. After a miserable first month on the market, the micro-console has now slumped to just 3,772 sales in Japan according...

Pachter: November PS4 Sales Are 66 Per Cent Greater Than Xbox One

Sony takes an early lead in North America

North America has proven a bit of a stronghold for Microsoft over the years. Back in September, Sony put an end to the Xbox 360’s incredible 32 month winning streak in the region – only to fall back behind in October. However, despite reports to the contrary coming out of Black Friday, it appears that...

UK Sales Charts: Gran Turismo 6 Falls Short of the Pace on PS3

Lapped by its predecessor

There was plenty of pent-up desire for Gran Turismo 5 when it eventually parked on store shelves all the way back in 2010, so it’s not especially surprising that its successor Gran Turismo 6 has debuted with sales less than its older sibling. However, we weren’t expecting such a sizeable drop. Chart-Track reports that...

Everyone else was robbed

You may not be aware of it, but Sony holds a ceremony in Japan every year to celebrate the best selling PlayStation games of the past twelve months.
