  • UK Sales Charts NBA 2K18 Leapfrogs PES 2018 at Launch

    Hoopin' mad

    This is crazy: basketball simulation NBA 2K18 has charted higher than footie follow-up PES 2018: Pro Evolution Soccer on the UK sales charts. While there’s unlikely to be much difference between the two titles, and Konami’s soccer sequel did much better on the PlayStation 4 than it did on the Xbox One, it’s still an unexpected...

  • UK Sales Charts Destiny 2 Down Dramatically Compared to First Game

    Written in the stars?

    Destiny 2’s physical sales are less than half those of its predecessor in the UK – even if it is still the biggest launch of the year thus far. According to leaked numbers which we believe to be accurate, the title sold around 175,000 units in its launch week – a gigantic decline compared to the first game’s tally of...

  • UK Sales Charts Mario Can't Quite Topple Uncharted: The Lost Legacy

    PS4 exclusive enjoys second week at the top

    Uncharted: The Lost Legacy has topped the UK sales charts for the second week running. Its victory comes as no real surprise given the quality of the product and its lower price point, but its success marks yet another week where a PlayStation 4 exclusive has come out on top. Reports suggest that new...

  • UK Sales Charts Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Is the Sixth PS4 Exclusive to Top in 2017

    A good year

    There’s no question the PlayStation 4 has been absolutely on fire this year, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is the console’s sixth exclusive to top the charts in 2017. Pub quiz time: can you name the other five? While it always seemed likely that Chloe and Nadine would take the crown, there was competition this time from fellow new...

  • News Persona Maker Atlus Finally Found Europe on a Map

    There is a God

    Atlus fans have had it rough in Europe over the past few years. Persona 5 did just about make it out on time here – primarily thanks to a publishing partnership that the Japanese company signed with Deep Silver – but past releases from the firm have been notorious for their setbacks in the old world. And that’s if they even made...

  • UK Sales Charts Crash Bandicoot Keeps the Throne Warm for Uncharted

    Naughty Dog domination

    Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has secured its seventh week at the summit of the UK sales charts, but surely now it's merely keeping the throne warm for Chloe Frazer and co, as Uncharted: The Lost Legacy threatens to steal its place. Honestly, numbers on the British best sellers list are weak right now, with estimates putting...

  • UK Sales Charts Crash Bandicoot Lands Fourth Successive Week at Summit

    Crash the party

    In another quiet week for the UK sales charts, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has secured its fourth consecutive week at the summit – and its sixth overall. The throwback platformer has proven to be the success story of the summer, with it demolishing Activision’s expectations – and convincing it to invest more into the...

    He's havin' a good time

    Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has cruised unchallenged to a fifth week at the top of the UK sales charts, although the retail release schedule is a bit barren right now. Nevertheless, it marks the first time that a PlayStation 4 exclusive has registered five weeks at the summit – and it’s also the secured the most...

  • UK Sales Charts Gran Theft Auto V Steals Back Top Spot

    You're a Rockstar

    There’s just no stopping Grand Theft Auto V, which has robbed back the UK sales charts summit for the 13th time since its release. To be fair, this was a very slow week, with Dead by Daylight being the best new arrival in 16th position. Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood debuted in 23rd place, and that’s all she wrote really. The...

  • UK Sales Charts Horizon Keeps ARMS at Arm's-Length

    The huntress returns

    Horizon: Zero Dawn has returned to the summit of the UK sales charts, after being reduced nationwide as part of the Days of Play promotion. Aloy’s adventure managed to keep new Nintendo Switch exclusive ARMS at arm’s-length – though it was retailing at double the price on a significantly smaller install base, so that’s...

    First ever number one for franchise

    We’re going to blow your mind a bit here: WipEout Omega Collection has scored the first ever UK sales charts number one in the iconic series’ history. Yes, that’s really true – it’s the first WipEout game ever to top the British sales charts. Has your mind been blown? We’re pretty bloody shocked...

    83 per cent of copies sold on PS4

    Tekken 7 has become the first entry in Bandai Namco’s iconic brawler brand to top the UK sales charts in almost two decades. The previous entry to achieve such a feat was Tekken 3 all the way back in 1998, which is frankly incredible. A whopping 83 per cent of retail copies were sold on the PlayStation 4 – one...

    NetherRealm's brawler on top

    Injustice 2 juggled its way to a second flawless victory this week, beating away strong competition from a resurgent Overwatch – itself enjoying its first anniversary event. Grand Theft Auto V looted third position, while FIFA 17 and PREY made up the remainder of the top five. Dishonored 2 re-entered the charts in...

  • UK Sales Charts PlayStation VR Exclusive Farpoint Shoots Up Second

    Injustice served in first

    Looks like Sony’s enormous marketing spend paid off, as PlayStation VR first-person shooter Farpoint has entered the UK sales charts in second position this week – an impressive achievement considering the increased cost of the PlayStation VR Aim Controller bundle and the slim install base of the headset itself. It...

  • News UK Retailer GAME's New Elite Scheme Sucks

    Oh dear

    We try to defend specialist stores like GameStop as much as possible here at Push Square because we believe it’s important for the industry to have a major high street presence, but sometimes you’ve got to call a spade a spade, and UK outlet GAME’s new Elite loyalty card absolutely sucks.

  • UK Sales Charts PREY Hunts Down Mario Kart in Second Week

    Bethesda's first number one since DOOM

    PREY didn’t get off to the best start in the UK sales charts, but it seems word of mouth – and the first proper batch of reviews – has perhaps helped the first-person shooter to fare better, as it’s leapfrogged Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to take the top spot this time. Grand Theft Auto V also climbed above...

  • UK Sales Charts Mario Kart Eats PREY Alive

    Bethesda's latest falls 600 units short

    PREY hunted down Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in the latest UK sales charts, but it couldn’t topple the Nintendo Switch exclusive. Word is that Bethesda’s reboot fell just 600 units short of the kart racer, though the Blue Shell flingin’ favourite was itself 71 per cent down week-over-week. While we’re not...

    Puyo Puyo Tetris in 18th place

    Creepy platformer Little Nightmares has managed a dream debut in the UK sales charts, entering in fourth position on the British best sellers list – despite the rundown only including retail sales. The game – which is also likely to have proved a popular pick on the PlayStation Store – did exceptionally well,...

  • UK Sales Charts There's No Taming Ghost Recon: Wildlands

    Ubisoft triumphs in slow week

    In a week with very few changes in the UK sales charts, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands has once again proven that hardcore gamers don't have their finger on the casual market's pulse, hugging the summit like a friendly bear. Grand Theft Auto V, FIFA 17, LEGO Worlds, and Rocket League all rounded out the top five,...

  • UK Sales Charts Ghost Recon Returns As Persona 5 Disappears

    Atlus JRPG drops out of the Top 40 entirely

    Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands reclaimed its place at the top of the UK sales charts this week, as stock issues caused Persona 5 to fall from the summit to outside the Top 40 entirely, which is the first time we've ever seen that happen. Talk about front-loaded! The top five was dominated by some...

  • News Horizon: Zero Dawn Is Free with the PS4 Pro This Easter

    In the UK at least

    Sony's looking to shift some hardware this Easter weekend, as it's announced that at select retailers in the UK you'll be able to get a free copy of Horizon: Zero Dawn with the PlayStation 4 Pro. This is a time limited deal – with the offer set to expire on 23rd April stock withstanding – so you may want to get a move on if...

  • UK Sales Charts Persona 5 Smashes Series Records to Top

    Well deserved, too

    What the heck is this? A Japanese role-playing game not named 'Final Fantasy' at number one? Surely not? It's true: Persona 5 has robbed the rest of the UK sales charts blind this week, climbing to the summit and securing Atlus' best ever launch in Britain by some margin. Not bad at all, eh? The title sold 97 per cent of its...

  • UK Sales Charts Mass Effect Remains in Deep Space for a Second Week

    Top Turian

    Mass Effect: Andromeda has managed a second week at the summit of the UK sales charts, despite a tepid response to the role-playing game. The sequel actually managed to do what Mass Effect 3 couldn't: achieve two consecutive weeks at the top of the British best-sellers list. The third entry in the series was swiftly swiped aside by EA's...

  • UK Sales Charts Mass Effect Andromeda Sits Behind Predecessors

    Fails to outsell second and third entry

    Mass Effect: Andromeda has topped the UK sales charts, but it's only managed to outsell the first title in the series. The game enjoyed the third best debut in the four game Mass Effect series, with both Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 netting better week ones. It's perhaps worth noting that the industry has...

  • UK Sales Charts Ghost Recon: Wildlands Holds On

    Horizon still selling strong

    It's been an electric start to 2017 in many ways, but the industry's just quickly taking a breather before Mass Effect: Andromeda drops. It means that this week's UK sales charts aren't all that exciting, with Ghost Recon: Wildlands retaining its place at the top of the best sellers list. LEGO Worlds is already starting...

  • UK Sales Charts Wildlands Scores the Largest Launch of the Year

    Surprise attack

    Ubisoft has once again proven that it's the master of sleeper hits, as its Ghost Recon: Wildlands has secured the largest launch of the year so far. It didn't feel like there was anywhere near the same anticipation for the co-op shooter as the likes of Horizon: Zero Dawn or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but it's sitting...

  • News PS4 Is Still the UK's Biggest Ever Console Launch

    Will it ever be beaten?

    A new contender threatened to steal the PlayStation 4's console launch crown last week: the Nintendo Switch released in the UK – but it couldn't topple the Sony system's monster debut. According to Games Industry.biz, the Big N's hybrid moved a respectable 80,000 units over its opening weekend – double that of the Wii U...

  • UK Sales Charts Horizon: Zero Dawn Beats Zelda to Summit

    Sony's biggest PS4 franchise debut to date

    How well has Horizon: Zero Dawn sold? Exceedingly well – in the UK at least. Sony threw the entirety of its marketing muscle behind Aloy's inaugural adventure, and the results speak for themselves: the role-playing release apparently "comfortably" outsold The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – and...

    Sony's landing some haymakers right now in the UK.

Up until recently, you could get the console alongside Guerrilla Games'...

  • UK Sales Charts For Honor Sticks a Sword in the Summit for a Second Week

    Calm before the storm

    Despite a 72 per cent drop in sales week over week, no title could take For Honor's seat at the summit of the UK sales charts. Xbox One and PC exclusive Halo Wars 2 gave its best shot, but fell short of its predecessor's already modest first week tally, while Grand Theft Auto V, FIFA 17, and Sniper Elite 4 didn't have the...

  • News Amazon UK's Selling a Horizon: Zero Dawn Steelbook Without the Game

    WTF?

    Collector's Editions without the game included do happen but are rare. However, we've never seen a steelbook be sold without a Blu-ray inside. One of the top sellers on Amazon UK right now, though, is a Horizon: Zero Dawn case without the role-playing release included. It's selling for £11.99, and while it's clearly marked, we can't help b

  • UK Sales Charts For Honor Swings an Axe at the Top Spot

    Sniper Elite 4 in second

    There are no upsets in the UK sales charts this week, as Ubisoft's For Honor has stormed the best sellers list, fighting its way to the summit. Sniper Elite 4 scoped out second place, pushing last week's frontrunner Grand Theft Auto V down into third. FIFA 17 and Battlefield 1 rounded out the top five, with Resident Evil 7:...

  • UK Sales Charts Grand Theft Auto V Stabs Nioh in the Back

    Team Ninja title in second

    Oh Nioh! Team Ninja's critically acclaimed Souls-like samurai escapade couldn't overcome the continued success of Grand Theft Auto V, meaning that the legendary Rockstar release is now the fifth title since tracking started in the UK to secure 12 spells at the summit. It's in esteemed company alongside the likes of, er,...

  • UK Sales Charts Resident Evil 7 Extends Its Stay at Summit

    Dead rising

    Resident Evil 7 has managed to cling on to the top of the UK sales charts this week, putting it in pole position to secure three consecutive weeks at the summit. It'll need to fight off Nioh if it hopes to achieve that, but the run would put the all-new survival horror on par with Resident Evil 3 and Resident Evil 5, both of which...

  • News 40% of UK PS4 Pro Buyers Were New to PlayStation 4, Says Sony

    Welcome to the family

    The PS4 Pro is generally viewed as a non-essential upgrade over the PlayStation 4 - an enhanced option for the hardcore user. As such, Sony has been angled in its marketing of the product, making sure not to put the supercharged console forward as a necessary next step. However, even without the kind of push that you may...

    Yakuza and Kingdom Hearts chart

    Japanese games generally sell best on the PlayStation 4 but Resident Evil is one of those rare Eastern franchises that commands just as much interest in the West as it does in the East. However, that's not stopped Capcom's latest survival horror from selling best on Sony's system in the UK, with the PS4 accounting for...

  • UK Sales Charts Gravity Rush 2 Slinks Outside Top Ten

    Me-oh

    Gravity Rush 2, for all of its critical acclaim, was always going to be an impossible sell, and unfortunately the superhero sequel has failed to break the UK sales charts top ten. The fan favourite finished in 16th position, which doesn't look terrible until you remember that sales are low across the board this time of the year. It probably...

    Can you believe this? Grand Theft Auto V, the game which first released all the way back in 2013, is currently top of the UK sales charts in 2017.

  • News PS4 Physical Game Sales Increase As UK Industry Suffers Blow

    Overall sales down 13.4 per cent

    Worryingly, the PlayStation 4 was the only home console to see sales of physical software in the UK increase year-over-year in 2016. The Nintendo 3DS also built upon its previous year's tally, but every other platform shrunk. That's resulted in a 13.4 per cent decline in game sales compared to 2015 in Britain, with...

    Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare has spent practically the entirety of the Christmas period at the top of the UK sales charts.
