  • UK Sales Charts God of War Fights Off the Competition for Another Week

    No.1 once more

    God of War set a record as the fastest selling game in the series, debuting at the top of the weekly UK boxed chart. In its second week on sale, it's stayed put, fending off Far Cry 5 in second and Nintendo Labo, which debuts in third with its Variety Pack. According to GamesIndustry.biz, God of War saw a sales dip of ju

  • UK Sales Charts God of War Sets New Series Record

    And so does Yakuza

    The new God of War game is the series’ fastest selling entry in the UK – and that’s despite data tracking only a couple of days’ worth of physical sales. In terms of purely boxed units, it outsold God of War III by 35 per cent, but it’s worth remembering that digital sales have increased dramatically in recent years, so...

  • UK Sales Charts Far Cry 5 Starts a Cult at Summit

    Little else going on

    Another desperately slow week for the British games industry concludes with Far Cry 5 at the top of the UK sales charts. This is its third consecutive spell at the summit, which would be nearing a Ubisoft record if God of War wasn’t waiting in the wings to steal its place. Elsewhere, the only other thing of note is Gran...

  • News PS4 Exclusives Unavailable for Pre-Order at Amazon UK

    Why?

    God of War’s review embargo lifted today, heralding a modern masterpiece and sending floods of PlayStation 4 players in the direction of Amazon UK as they sought to secure pre-orders. However, the exclusive is unavailable at the popular website – and has been for some time. Is this simply a stock issue in the wake of such anticipation?...

  • UK Sales Charts Far Cry 5 Is No.1 for Second Week Running

    A quiet week

    The latest weekly UK chart is in, and, well, not a whole lot has changed. Ubisoft's Far Cry 5, the fastest selling title in the franchise, is still top of the pile. In fact, the top three hasn't changed; FIFA 18 and Sea of Thieves remain in second and third place respectively. A lack of notable new releases means the chart is largely...

  • UK Sales Charts Far Cry 5 Is No.1, Biggest UK Launch Week in Franchise's History

    Rise up

    Far Cry 5 is Ubisoft's latest blockbuster release, and it's doing pretty well for itself so far. It debuts in the top position of the weekly chart, and has enjoyed the biggest launch in Far Cry's history -- in the UK, anyway. We're yet to see if this kind of success holds true elsewhere, but we imagine we'll see a similar story in North...

  • UK Sales Charts New Releases A Way Out and Ni no Kuni II Debut in the Top Three

    Shiver me timbers

    New releases have dominated the latest weekly chart, with Sea of Thieves, A Way Out, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, and Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered debuting in the top four spaces. As you might have guessed, this makes for a very different top 10 to the previous chart, which was more or less made up of the usual suspects...

  • News Sony Taken to Task for 'Misleading' Gran Turismo Sport Ad

    Platform holder failed to be clear about online requirement

    Sony’s been given a stern slap on the wrists by the Advertising Standards Authority for a “misleading” Gran Turismo Sport commercial which aired on UK television last year. The advert showed various tracks and vehicles that can’t be accessed without an Internet connection, which the...

  • UK Sales Charts Burnout Paradise Remastered Zooms to First Place

    Smashing

    Last week's UK sales are in, and it seems that, sometimes, you can't beat the classics. Burnout Paradise topped the UK chart back when it released on PS3 in 2008, and that initial success has repeated itself, with Burnout Paradise Remastered in pole position. According to GamesIndustry.biz, the PS4 version of the game accounted for 78% of...

  • News Iconic Store Toys 'R' Us to Shut Up Shop in UK

    Over 3,000 jobs lost

    Legendary retailer Toys ‘R’ Us is to shut down completely in the UK, after administrators failed to find a buyer for the flagging business. A whopping 105 shops will close over the next six weeks, with over 3,000 jobs lost as a result. Any remaining stock will be discounted in the remaining stores that are open, so it may be...

  • UK Sales Charts Bravo Team Battles with Grand Theft Auto V

    TT Isle of Man somehow in the mix

    PlayStation VR exclusive Bravo Team registered an impressive debut in third position on the UK sales charts this week, with Grand Theft Auto V taking the overall crown for the umpteenth time. Uber-niche motorcycle simulation TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge sandwiched the two, seemingly connecting with an audience...

  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 18 Scores Another No.1

    No surprises here

    With the new releases slowing down, we're back to a fairly predictable UK chart this week. In at No.1 is FIFA 18, where it has stayed for three weeks running. Grand Theft Auto V and Call of Duty: WWII retain their positions in second and third respectively, while Monster Hunter: World slips down to fifth. Shadow of the Colossus...

  • News Three PS4 Exclusives Feature in UK's Best Selling Games of 2017

    Crash Bandicoot! Gran Turismo! Horizon!

    There’s no doubt that the PlayStation 4 is top dog in the UK, even despite decent competition from both the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. Nevertheless, an impressive three PlayStation 4 exclusives featured in Britain’s best sellers of 2017 list, with Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Gran Turismo Sport, and...

  • UK Sales Charts Metal Gear Survive Fortifies Its Position in the Top 10

    Macrotransactions

    Despite an awful reputation among gamers, Metal Gear Survive has debuted at No.6 in the latest UK chart. It's possible that the bad press or simply the name 'Metal Gear' have spurred on sales. While this isn't the highest debut, it's likely higher than most people were expecting.  FIFA 18 maintains its place atop the chart...

  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 18 Tackles Kingdom Come: Deliverance to Take No.1 Spot

    Ball and chainmail

    The brand new Kingdom Come: Deliverance had a very strong first week in the UK, but it's FIFA 18 that sits in the throne. Strong promotion of the Switch version saw a huge boost in sales - nearly 500%, according to Gamesindustry.biz. Kingdom Come had to settle for second place, then, but for a brand new IP that takes some creative...

  • UK Sales Charts Shadow of the Colossus Looms Large at No.1

    Colossal

    Monster Hunter: World's reign over the UK weekly chart is over, replaced by another game filled with giant creatures. Shadow of the Colossus takes the top spot, and it comfortably outperforms the 2006 original; launch week sales are 73% higher than they were for the PS2 classic, which also debuted at No.1. Capcom's beast-slaying RPG,...

  • UK Sales Charts Monster Hunter: World Is Apex Predator for a Second Week

    Giant crown

    We already know that Monster Hunter: World is enjoying very healthy sales, and it seems the game will be sticking around in the charts for a little while. It's in the top spot once more, stealing the spotlight from UFC 3, which debuts in second place. Dragon Ball FighterZ is also still performing well, though it has dropped a few places...

  • UK Sales Charts Monster Hunter: World Hunts Down Best First Week in Series History

    Roaring success

    It's a monstrous start for sales of Capcom's Monster Hunter: World. The game only launched on Friday, but it debuts in the UK charts in first place, and has enjoyed the strongest first week sales of any Monster Hunter title. Dragon Ball FighterZ also performed extremely well, scoring the franchise's best debut chart position at...

    You know you want to

    Amazon wants all customers to smile like the arrow icon printed on its iconic packaging, so in order to celebrate its victory on the consumer satisfaction charts, it’s sending out a big thanks to all customers in the guise of a £10 discount code. There is a big catch, however, in that you can’t use the discount code on...

  • UK Sales Charts Digimon Marks Only Change in Impenetrable Top 10

    Digimon are the champions

    Another week, another mostly similar UK sales chart. This week we mainly see a reshuffle of the previous top 10, with only one dropping out (Forza Motorsport 7) and one new entry. Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory just makes it into 10th place on the list, and honestly, there isn't a whole lot more to report...

  • UK Sales Charts Grand Theft Auto V Returns to the Top

    Chop, Chop

    Grand Theft Auto V first released in 2013; it’s still topping the UK sales charts in 2018. The unbelievable success of Rockstar Games’ open world opus trucks on, with the title securing its 14th cumulative number one, putting it close to record holder Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’s 18 week record. GTA5’s now spent 226 weeks on...

  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 18 Kicks off 2018 at No.1

    Live and kicking

    The new year is off to a fairly unsurprising start in the UK weekly sales chart. FIFA 18 has reclaimed the top spot from Call of Duty: WWII, and we see PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds nip into the top 10 at 7th, but other than that, there isn't an awful lot out of the ordinary this week. Perhaps the most interesting nugget of...

  • UK Sales Charts Call of Duty Remains MVP for Final Week of 2017

    Boom

    Perhaps unsurprisingly, Call of Duty: WWII has kept hold of its position atop the UK physical charts as 2017 drew to a close. It's been sitting pretty as number one for eight weeks running which, according to chart trackers GfK, hasn't happened since Zumba Fitness danced into our lives in 2011. The top five hasn't changed at all, actually, but...

  • UK Sales Charts Crash Bandicoot Climbs the List for Christmas

    Oodibigah

    Remember when people questioned whether Crash Bandicoot could possibly be relevant in 2017? Well, the orange furred fave has done okay for himself this Christmas, with the N. Sane Trilogy climbing up the UK sales charts into sixth position over the holidays. This is a muted British best sellers list due to the lack of new releases, but...

  • News PS4 Gobbled Up Half of All Physical Game Sales in UK This Year

    Wakka wakka

    The quiet giant strikes again, with more staggering (but underreported) statistics emerging about the PlayStation 4’s ridiculous 2017. According to Games Industry.biz – courtesy of sales data firms UKIE and GfK Chart-Track – Sony’s console commanded 50.2 per cent of all physical game sales in the UK this year. It’s no slouch in...

  • UK Sales Charts Call of Duty: WWII Is This Year's Christmas Cracker

    Got the X Factor

    Call of Duty: WWII is your Christmas number one on the UK sales charts. Surprise! Activision’s franchise has topped the British best sellers list four festive seasons in a row now, although last year’s Infinite Warfare did rely on a £12.99 price drop in order to keep the record alive. The same hasn’t proven true with...

  • UK Sales Charts Order Is Established As the Releases Dry Up

    You can probably guess the top ten

    You know that Ariana Grande song where she’s all like, THIS IS. THE PART WHERE? C’mon, you know the one. Anyway, this is the part where we post practically the same UK sales charts every week for, like, eight weeks because nothing much happens. That’s primarily because very little is coming out, but also...

  • News UK Politicians and Campaigners Lobby Against Detroit: Become Human

    Exclusive attracts controversy

    Those of you old enough to remember the name Jack Thompson will recall a time when video games were considered Public Enemy No. 1, and various politicians and campaigners were forever lobbying to get them banned. It’s all gone quiet on that front lately, but Detroit: Become Human’s controversial “child abuse”...

  • UK Sales Charts Gran Turismo Sport On Course to Overtake Crash Bandicoot

    Will be Britain's best-selling PS4 exclusive of 2017

    Gran Turismo Sport is now just a “few weeks away” from overtaking Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy as Britain’s best-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive of 2017 at retail. The racer has been discounted in recent weeks, but it’s still flying high on the revenue charts, and added an estimated...

  • UK Sales Charts Assassin's Creed Origins Kicks Super Mario Odyssey into the Sand

    But sadly Wolfenstein slumps

    Assassin’s Creed Origins more or less matched the launch sales of London-based predecessor Syndicate to keep Super Mario Odyssey away from the top of the UK sales charts this week – although it obviously did launch on two platforms with larger install bases. Around 60 per cent of people purchased the Egyptian...

  • News PlayStation Raids the Royal Albert Hall for Orchestral Performance

    Music to our ears

    Well, this is unexpectedly awesome: PlayStation has lined up a concert at London’s famous Royal Albert Hall, where the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will play hits from various exclusive franchises, including Shadow of the Colossus, The Last Guardian, Uncharted, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, LittleBigPlanet, and

  • UK Sales Charts Gran Turismo Sport Triples Forza 7's Launch

    Races ahead of Gran Turismo 6

    As expected, Gran Turismo Sport has sped to the simulation sales crown, tripling rival racer Forza Motorsport 7’s launch tally. The anticipated title – which naturally topped the UK charts – enjoyed stronger week one sales than the original entry in the series, and also outperformed late PlayStation 3 arrival Gran...

  • UK Sales Charts The Evil Within 2 Suffers Shocking Launch

    Shadow of War can't stop FIFA 18

    The Evil Within 2 has sold less than a quarter of its predecessor’s physical launch total, making its commercial performance unquestionably the scariest thing about the survival horror sequel. The game – which we rather liked – will now be banking on Hallowe’en hype to make up the difference. It’s not the...

  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 18 Tightens Its Grip on Championship Spot

    Title challenge

    Yeah, very few games would have been able to dethrone FIFA 18 in its second week on the UK sales charts, as it posted numbers that most games would be proud of in their first week on sale. Xbox One exclusive Forza Motorsport 7 was the only title to really threaten the soccer sim’s crown, and it saw its sales dip compared to its...

  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 18 Bundles Do the Business for PS4

    Sony commands 60 per cent of sales

    Sony commanded a dizzying 60 per cent of launch FIFA 18 sales after snagging marketing rights to the soccer simulation. Last year it managed 53 per cent, so it’s actually improved its share of the spoils year-over-year. However, it’s worth noting that sales of the footie favourite are actually down 25 per cent...

  • UK Sales Charts Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Appears to Flop

    Hyper combo finished

    Count on Capcom to ensure a game starring Spider-Man, Captain America, and Chris Redfield underperforms. Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite launched last week – although you’d be forgiven for forgetting – and entered the UK sales charts in 12th place. It’s a disappointing performance for what is, frankly, a disappointing game...

  • 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...

    Atlus fans have had it rough in Europe over the past few years.

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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

  • UK Sales Charts Tekken 7 Lands Series' First Number One in 20 Years

    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...

  • UK Sales Charts Injustice 2 Slaps Down Overwatch

    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. Like, it beggars belief it’s so bad. So...

  • 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...

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...

    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...
