Snow Joke! Standalone White PS4 Coming to UK Next Week

Winter wonderbox

Personally, we quite like the idea of all of our home entertainment appliances being the same colour (black), but if you don’t suffer from a pesky case of OCD, then you may be tempted by the white PlayStation 4 console. Previously, this was only available alongside Destiny or DriveClub, but, as promised by Worldwide Studios...

UK Sales Charts: None Shall Pass FIFA 15, As Shadow of Mordor Enters in Second

Lord of the league

FIFA 15 fought off its first big competitor for the title this week, remaining at the summit of the UK sales charts – despite the excellent Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor deploying on Friday. 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...

Impulse purchase

There has never been a better time to buy a PlayStation 4 in the UK.

Won't break the bank

Retailers around the UK are really fighting for your custom right now, and that’s resulting in some outrageous offers regarding the PlayStation 4. We already saw the system’s price slashed ahead of FIFA 15 last week, but now it seems that GAME is preparing a bundle of epic proportions – which includes three games and a...

UK Sales Charts: FIFA 15 Kicks Destiny Off the Top

Got some balls

That didn’t last long, did it? To be fair, a quick glance at the release calendar would have told you that Destiny wouldn’t be dominating the UK sales charts forever – especially with FIFA 15 looming on the horizon. And, unsurprisingly, it’s the soccer simulation that’s knocked Bungie’s first-person shooter off the top,...

Less than Andy Carroll

FIFA 15 is undoubtedly the biggest new release of the week – especially if you happen to be fond of the beautiful game. However, with the re-sell value of last year’s edition already rock bottom, you’ll no doubt be looking to get a decent deal on this year’s instalment – Harry Redknapp style. Fortunately, while...

Not so weary Traveller

Some less than stellar reviews haven’t prevented Destiny from maintaining its place atop the UK sales charts, with the intergalactic PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 adventure holding strong – despite numbers dropping by 78 per cent since its record breaking debut. It continued to perform impressively on the PS4 in...

Strong showing from Activision's new super series

It would have been a bigger surprise this week if Destiny had failed to land in the top spot, but, as expected, it’s rocketed straight to the summit. The next big game from Bungie sold best on the PlayStation 4, and also smashed new intellectual property records in the process. As a result,...

And it's the biggest thing since sliced bread

The critical reception may be a boiling pot of piping hot and lukewarm, but that hasn’t stopped Destiny from achieving the biggest new intellectual property launch in the UK, brushing aside Watch Dogs, which was the previous record holder. Unsurprisingly, the PlayStation 4 version sold best on British...

Moon dust

Bloomin’ heck, we always suspected that Destiny was going to be a bloody big deal, but even we weren’t expecting the fanfare that has manifested around the first-person shooter over the past few days. Earlier today, Sony revealed that it’s treating the release like one of its own, while there are plenty of reports of ridiculous...

Wow, the PlayStation 4 Is Utterly on Fire in the UK

Already surpassed one million units sold

In console war terms, the PlayStation 3 lost in the UK. Not only did it sell significantly less than its closest competitor the Xbox 360, but it also fell behind in mindshare. Stores would stick Sony’s latest releases right to the back of their video game sections, and newspaper promotions would always...

Cheap as chips

Sony has sold 10 million PlayStation 4 consoles since its launch last year, making it one of the fastest selling systems of all time. However, we’re sure that it’s looking at the fast-approaching holiday season with wide eyes, as it’s typically in the second Christmas that consoles truly take off. And with the likes of Destiny,...
