PS4 Exclusive Everybody's Gone to the Rapture Was Technically Top of the UK Charts Last Week

Digital be damned

As reported, LEGO Jurassic World was top of the UK sales charts last week - but as we all know, the rankings don't take digital releases into account. The concept seems a bit mad when you consider how much money firms like Sony are raking in from their digital marketplaces, and it seems crazier still when you realise how many...

UK Sales Charts: There's Nothing to See Here

Zzz

Ah, the British summer – a time where the locals turn out in too few clothes despite there being clouds in the sky and the sales charts hibernate for a few weeks. There's absolutely nothing worth mentioning in this latest top ten, but we'll do our best. LEGO Jurassic World is back at the top, while Grand Theft Auto V's in second. The Elder...

It launched a series of new bundles over the weekend, which spurred PlayStation software up the...

UK Sales Charts: Rory McIlroy on Target as Top Ten Stagnates

Same old story

We have officially hit that part of the summer where there's literally nothing to say about the UK sales charts.

But it's exclusive to GAME

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's snazzy red and gunmetal grey PlayStation 4 bundle will cost you a bionic arm and a leg when it launches on 1st September in the UK, as it will be exclusive to seasoned extortionists GAME. Actually, we're being the slightest bit melodramatic – it's a bit of a snip at £364.99. The...

On par

Golfing giant Rory McIlroy has clubbed Kratos square in the jaw, as EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour teed off at the top of the UK sales charts this week. God of War III Remastered did reasonably well on a limited marketing budget, scaling the best sellers list all the way into ninth – but rest assured that the Ghost of Sparta will not be...

The Bat is back

Warner Bros must be making an absolute killing these days. The publisher seems to pump out hit after hit, with Dying Light and Mortal Kombat X both reaching the top of the UK sales charts in recent times.

Back on its throne

Despite a troubled PC launch, the console version of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has wandered to the top of the UK sales charts.
