News: One UK Retailer Will Happily Sell You a PS4 Slim Today

One UK Retailer Will Happily Sell You a PS4 Slim Today

Er

This is so bizarre: the PlayStation 4 Slim isn't even announced yet, but there are four available from the CEX in Widnes right now. Somehow, the unannounced console has filtered into the retail channel in the UK, with the leaks seemingly centred in the North Western part of the country. So, if you fancy one of the new systems right now, you may...

UK Sales Charts: F1 2016 Overtakes No Man's Sky to Take Pole

Va va vroom

Whoops, we forgot about the UK sales charts! That's probably an indication of just how uninteresting they've been for some time now, but we should probably cover them anyway. F1 2016 has raced into an early lead, overtaking No Man's Sky to take pole position this week. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens squeezed a place on the podium...

UK Sales Charts: Grand Theft Auto V Assumes the Throne

Franklin amazing

A sign of how slow the UK games industry is this summer: Grand Theft Auto V has reassumed its position at the top of the charts for the first time since March 2015. The game's been in the list for 150 weeks now, and this is its ninth number one. It was, however, a close-run contest between Rockstar's open world adventure and...

UK Sales Charts: Uncharted 4 Sales Increase 94 Per Cent

Up and at 'em

With the school holidays underway, Sony's pumped a ton more cash into Uncharted 4: A Thief's End here in the UK, widely advertising a special price promotion. The game dropped to £34.99 temporarily – though you could get it even cheaper at some stores – and that prompted a 94 per cent surge in sales. It still wasn't enough to...

UK Sales Charts: There's Very Little to See Here

As you were

There's very little to talk about in this week's UK sales charts, we're afraid; LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens topped the best sellers list for a fourth consecutive week – the fourth is clearly with it. Elsewhere, the top ten is packed with typical titles, like FIFA 16, Overwatch, and Grand Theft Auto V. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End...

UK Sales Charts: Uncharted 4 Climbs Back Up the Top Ten

Sales up 152 per cent

Amazon Prime Day 2016 was kind to Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, pushing the popular PlayStation 4 exclusive back to the top of the individual units chart – and into second on the all formats list. The game's sales increased by a whopping 152 per cent this time, which was enough to help it overcome Monster Hunter Generations...

UK Sales Charts: Ain't No Forcing LEGO Star Wars from Summit

Rey to go

These UK sales charts reports are going to get really boring for a good few weeks now, so strap yourself in and prepare to grit your teeth. LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens has held on to the top spot for a second successive week, force choking the competition out of the race. Overwatch finished in second, while DOOM, FIFA 16, and...

UK Sales Charts: LEGO Star Wars Forces Its Way to the Top

Sith sense

LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens has enjoyed the fourth biggest launch in UK LEGO game history and the fourth biggest launch in UK Star Wars game history – the fourth was clearly on its side. It pushed last week's front runner DOOM down into, er, fourth, while FIFA 16 and Overwatch hung around in second and third respectively...

UK Sales Charts: Overwatch Out for Uncharted 4, DOOM

Evergreen arrivals continue to dominate

We have a sneaking suspicion that the UK sales charts have found three new permanent fixtures: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, DOOM, and Overwatch. While Blizzard's FPS is only in its second week – and has managed to secure top spot yet again – the other two titles have been loitering around for some time...

UK Sales Charts: Overwatch Bumps Uncharted 4 from Summit

Almost 50 per cent of physical sales on PS4

Channelling its best Reinhardt impression, Overwatch has swatted Uncharted 4: A Thief's End from the top of the UK sales charts. Naughty Dog's impressive action adventure was frozen in second place by Mei, while the popular FPS used Widowmaker's rifle to get a good view from the summit. Word of mouth...

UK Sales Charts: Uncharted 4 Clings on to Top Spot

Gold

Sony's enjoying a real strong spell at the top of the UK sales charts, as Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is the latest title from the publisher to enjoy successive weeks at the summit. Sales for Nate Drake's latest did drop sharply after its record breaking launch, meaning that DOOM was clipping at its heels – but Naughty Dog's outstanding...

Ratchet & Clank still best selling individual game

We're not entirely sure how, but Battleborn has managed to top the UK sales charts. There is a big "but" that simply must follow this sentence, however, as Ratchet & Clank was still the best-selling game of the week in terms of individual units. What does this mean, then? Basically, the only...
