Japanese Sales Charts: Even with Declining Numbers, PS4 Manages to Stay at the Top

Not-so-steady ground

It's a bit of a hollow victory for the PlayStation 4 in the most recent Japanese hardware charts. Sony's new-gen machine is still sitting pretty at the top, but its numbers continue to fall away without the support of any big software releases. The console's managing to stay above the hallowed 20,000 mark, but it seems as...

UK Sales Charts: Assassin's Creed Syndicate Fails to Outsell Predecessors

London's burning

Assassin's Creed Syndicate has climbed to the top of the UK sales charts – but it may not like what it sees. Perhaps suggesting some serious franchise fatigue, the London-based adventure not only failed to better predecessor Assassin's Creed Unity's first week sales, but also every other major entry in the series. In other words,...

Comparing PS4's Sales to the Competition May Be Tough Moving Forwards

Keeping the numbers quiet

Sony was sheepish when it came to console sales last generation, lumping the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 2 together as part of the illusive "PlayStation Family". It's been a lot more forthcoming with the PlayStation 4, revealing both sell in and sell through figures with alarming regularity. But it seems that Microsoft...

If you tend to prefer the 'treat' part of Hallowe'en, then this European PlayStation Store sale should give you a sugar rush.

Snaaake

For the fifth month running, the PlayStation 4 was the best-selling console in the United States – even though hardware sales tumbled year-over-year. According to tracking firm NPD, physical spend in the video games sector totalled $1.01 billion in September 2015 – a reduction of nine per cent compared to the same period last year. As...

Phoenix down

Even though this author isn't necessarily the biggest fan of Japanese role-playing games, it's really nice to see the genre infiltrating this week's UK sales charts. FIFA 16 was top yet again with Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection finishing second – but Tales of Zestiria landed a surprise strike on eighth, while Dragon Quest...

Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Numbers Remain Reasonable as Uncharted Climbs High

Hanging on in there

There's a cheeky little grin on Nathan Drake's face right now as his Uncharted Collection almost scrambled to the summit of last week's Japanese software charts. The PlayStation 4 exclusive leapt into third place selling through 24,867 copies, which isn't too bad. Meanwhile, FIFA 16's launch in the Land of the Rising Sun saw it...

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. Sony's newest console should see something of a rebirth once the cut hits early next month, but it remains to be seen whether or not the price drop will have a lasting positive effect on sales without any...

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

The game sold best on the PlayStation 4 – surprise, surprise – scooping up a whopping 57 per cent of the sales...

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...
