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.

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...

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...

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...
