Black Friday 2014 Deals - Every PS4, PS3, and PlayStation Vita Sale

What are the best doorbusters?

Much like Christmas, the build-up to Black Friday has been unbearable at times. Retailers have been teasing PlayStation savings for weeks now, so it’s strange to think that in just over 24 hours, everything will be more or less sold out. Still, if you play your cards right, there are bargains to be found – and...

Grand Theft Auto V and Far Cry 4 perform strongest on Sony's system

The previous generation was a long one for Sony, so we suspect that it’s starting to enjoy being back on top again. While the PlayStation 4 has been performing outrageously well all year in the UK, the next-gen device confirmed its status as the King of Consoles this week by...

PS4 Passes One Million Sales Milestone in Germany

Pole position

It may well have been severely supply constrained at launch, but the PlayStation 4 has already passed the one million sales milestone in Germany, leaving its competitors in the dust. According to SCEE, the number was crossed on 21st October, putting its next-gen platform in “pole position”. Given the region, we reckon that the...

UK Sales Charts: Assassin's Creed Unity Sails Past Black Flag's Launch Sales

Advanced Warfare still on top

There’s a great game in Assassin’s Creed Unity, but it’s obfuscated by bad bugs and glitches. To be fair, Ubisoft is working hard to fix things, and that’s already resulted in one major PlayStation 4 patch. However, upper-management won’t be too worried about the backlash to the game, as it’s outsold the...

Sony Temporarily Slashes the PS4's Price in the UK

Just in time for Call of Duty

While many have been eager to suggest that Sony won’t compete with the Xbox One’s temporary price drop in the United States, we noted in a recent feature that it’s been frequently adjusting the cost of the PlayStation 4 in the UK to keep its nose in front. Indeed, while the system hasn’t ever received any...

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...

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

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...
