  • UK Sales Charts The Division, Far Cry Primal Put Ubi on Top

    Ubiquitous software

    Ubisoft is on fire, isn't it? The French publisher tends to quietly go about its business these days, smashing records and releasing games that refuse to be removed from the UK sales charts. Take this week's top ten: The Division is in first for a fourth consecutive week, but Far Cry Primal has quietly climbed into second as...

  • UK Sales Charts Far Cry Primal Shows Its Teeth to Plants vs. Zombies

    All change, please

    This week's UK sales chart is a little bit different, much to the relief of every single one of you who reads these articles. Far Cry Primal has roared its way to the top of the club, etching its name in the number one slot like a hasty cave painting. It bettered Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, which entered in second...

  • UK Sales Charts Street Fighter V Cowers to the Power of Street Fighter IV

    Maybe it should reconsider its fist?

    Street Fighter V hasn't got off to a great start in the UK sales charts, failing to KO Street Fighter IV's week one sales record all the way back in 2009. While some will see this as a sharp decline, it's perhaps worth remembering that the game did only release on one system, and will have seen a much larger...

  • UK Sales Charts Killzone Re-Enters as Call of Duty Holds

    Shadow fall

    There's very little to see in the UK sales charts this week, as Call of Duty: Black Ops III earned its tenth top spot since launch. The title is on sale on the PlayStation 4 right now, so is enjoying something of a second wind. It'll be interesting to see whether Street Fighter V can overcome it, but we're expecting the Capcom brawler...

  • UK Sales Charts Naruto Shippuden Soars as Gravity Rush Stumbles

    Kat ninja

    It's a fairly pleasant UK sales chart for fans of Japanese games this week: Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 burst its way into third position, proving that Robert Ramsey isn't the only person on the planet that cares for these games. Call of Duty: Black Ops III and LEGO Marvel's Avengers finished ahead of the anime brawler, while...

    Rising S.T.A.R.S.

    Praise the gaming gods: there's change in this week's UK sales charts. Don't get too excited, mind – there's not that much for us to write about. But while Call of Duty: Black Ops III clings onto its crown, Resident Evil Origins Collection and Life Is Strange have infiltrated the UK top ten. The former compiles Resident Evil...

  • UK Sales Charts Grand Theft Auto V Keeps Truckin'

    Rockstar's release up to second as Call of Duty tops

    Grand Theft Auto V is an unstoppable juggernaut. The game, which first launched over two years ago, has climbed to second in this week's UK sales charts, proving that there ain't any stopping Rockstar's train. Call of Duty: Black Ops III continued its dominance in first position, while FIFA 16,...

  • UK Sales Charts Best Sellers, Best Sellers Never Change

    Zzz

    Nothing to see here, folks. The UK sales charts have barely changed for nearing a month now, and that remains true this week, with Call of Duty: Black Ops III on top yet again. FIFA 16 managed to bump Star Wars Battlefront down into third, while Grand Theft Auto V overtook Fallout 4 in fourth. The only real surprise this time is that Battlefield...

  • UK Sales Charts Ain't No Beating Call of Duty: Black Ops III

    Back in black

    Call of Duty has become such a strange series. Much like FIFA, it feels like – review time aside – the franchise barely gets any coverage on mainstream websites, and yet year after year it dominates the sales charts. Perhaps it spotlights the contrast between so-called "hardcore gamers" and more casual players – but whatever...

  • UK Sales Charts Call of Duty Clings on to Christmas Crown

    BlOps-ing Day

    While it's true that Call of Duty doesn't sell quite as well as it used to, it's still a much stronger brand than virtually all of its peers. Having secured the Christmas crown last week, Black Ops III has once again topped the UK sales charts, having increased its numbers by a whopping 40 per cent. As expected, the PS4 version sold...

  • News GAME's Share Prices Plunge as UK Retailer Is Struck by Pre-Christmas Slump

    Bah humbug

    Upper-management at UK retailer GAME will be enjoying Christmas about as much as Louis Van Gaal, as the company's share prices have plummeted by a disastrous 34 per cent today. The decline comes after the chain announced that its UK revenue was down 11.4 per cent compared to the same 21 week period leading up to 19th December in 2014...

The app will, of course, include access to Channel 4 catch-up content, as well as...

  • UK Sales Charts Black Ops III Beats Battlefront to Christmas Number One

    A CoD Christmas

    Call of Duty: Black Ops III has breached the top of the UK sales charts, making it the sixth title in the series to secure the coveted Christmas number one spot. The shooter did come under heavy fire from Star Wars Battlefront, which saw a 20 per cent increase on the back of The Force Awakens fever, but it wasn't enough to topple...

  • UK Sales Charts Call of Duty: Black Ops III Breaches the Top Spot

    Back in black

    Star Wars Battlefront, FIFA 16, and Fallout 4 may have fought valiantly – but Call of Duty: Black Ops III wasn't going to be down for long, was it? Activision's evergreen shooter has reclaimed its place atop the UK sales charts, with all of the above titles making up the Top Five alongside Minecraft: Story Mode. Just

  • UK Sales Charts Just Cause 3 Blows a Hole in the Top Five

    Marvellous Medici

    Just Cause 3 tethered a landmine to fourth position in this week's UK sales charts – and pulled them both together. Avalanche Studios' open world adventure appears to have got off to a flying start, but it couldn't topple FIFA 16, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, or Star Wars Battlefront – all three of which remained glued to the...

  • News PS4 Edges Out Xbox One in UK Black Friday Battle

    But it was close

    Sony won the battle of Black Friday in the UK – but only just. According to MCV, the PlayStation 4 moved 139,000 consoles between 22nd November and 28th November, a fraction more than the Xbox One which mustered 134,000 units. It's good news for both consoles, as new-gen hardware really starts to cement itself in British homes...

  • UK Sales Charts Uncharted PS4 Sales Spike by 999 Per Cent

    Knack returns to the Top 40

    Black Friday week proved so enormous that the UK sales charts were delayed over 24 hours due to a system error at a major retailer. It's not surprising, though, as retail software sales increased by 60 per cent compared to the previous week, with hardware sales jumping by eight per cent year-over-year. Despite this, the...

    Low prices for the Limeys

    There's no doubt that Black Friday 2015 was a bit of a damp squib here in the UK. After last year's fist fights, retailers decided to spread the deals out over the course of seven days, and while there were some good offers to be found, it never really got especially insane, did it? Fortunately, there's still

    So, here's the deal: our Black Friday 2015 guide got so big that we, er, exceeded the character limit imposed by our system. This is a blessing in disguise, though, because we've decided to break the UK's various PlayStation doorbusters away from the American ones. Seeing as the sales are so much better across the...

  • UK Sales Charts Star Wars Battlefront Feels the Force on PS4

    Sony SKU outsells other systems combined

    Star Wars Battlefront has become the fastest selling Star Wars title of all time in the UK, beating previous record holder The Force Unleashed by 117 per cent. The game sold almost 60 per cent of its copies on the PlayStation 4, meaning that Sony's system beat the Xbox One and PC's combined tally by some...

  • News This PS4 Bundle Is for Everyone That Skipped the PS3

    Welcome to the family

    Well, this is… Awkward. Sony's been chastised by many armchair pundits for putting too many resources into remasters – but this new European 1TB PlayStation 4 bundle comes with three of them. It looks like a bad joke at first blush, but the platform holder's clearly looking to capture non-PlayStation 3 owners with this...

  • UK Sales Charts Fallout 4 Goes Nuclear on PS4

    Bombs dropped

    As expected, Fallout 4 absolutely scorched the UK sales charts this week, entering in first position and securing the third biggest launch of the year so far. The game – which sold over half of its copies on the PlayStation 4 despite an Xbox One marketing deal – bettered its predecessor Fallout: New Vegas' first week numbers by...

    Greatness from small beginnings

    There's lots to see and do in London – but the English capital's way better when Nathan Drake's your guide.

With the use of a unique smartphone app,...

  • UK Sales Charts Call of Duty: Black Ops III Sells Best on PS4

    Need for Speed pulls ahead on Sony's system, too

    Sony's marketing partnership with Activision appears to have done the trick, as Call of Duty: Black Ops III sold best on the PlayStation 4 in the UK. A whopping 48 per cent of shoppers picked up the first-person shooter on the Japanese giant's flagship format. In comparison, 43 per cent got it on the...

  • UK Sales Charts Assassin's Creed Syndicate Loses Its Halo

    While Black Ops III waits in the wings

    It would have been an absolute catastrophe if Halo 5: Guardians failed to top the sales charts, but it did – outselling the launch numbers of Assassin's Creed Syndicate by 50 per cent. Of course, it's worth noting that Ubisoft's open world romp through London was the poorest performing entry in the property...

  • UK Sales Charts Assassin's Creed Syndicate Fails to Outsell Predecessors

    London's burning

    Assassin's Creed Syndicate has climbed to the top of the UK sales charts – but it may not like what it sees. Perhaps suggesting some serious franchise fatigue, the London-based adventure not only failed to better predecessor Assassin's Creed Unity's first week sales, but also every other major entry in the series. In other words,...

    Phoenix down

    Even though this author isn't necessarily the biggest fan of Japanese role-playing games, it's really nice to see the genre infiltrating this week's UK sales charts. FIFA 16 was top yet again with Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection finishing second – but Tales of Zestiria landed a surprise strike on eighth, while Dragon Quest...

  • UK Sales Charts Uncharted PS4 Nabs the 8th Biggest PS4 Launch of 2015

    But can't beat FIFA

    Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection couldn't remove FIFA 16 from the top of the UK sales summit, but it was popular enough to earn the accolade of 8th biggest PlayStation 4 launch of 2015. The sumptuous remaster slotted in nicely in second on the British best sellers list, with the likes of Destiny: The Taken King and LEGO...

    Build me up, buttercup

    LEGO Dimensions is the fastest selling toys-to-life title to release this year, comfortably overcoming the launch numbers for Skylanders Superchargers and Disney Infinity 3.0.

  • UK Sales Charts FIFA 16 Shoots Straight to the Top of the League

    Back of the net

    There are absolutely no surprises in this week's UK sales chart, as FIFA 16 has rifled one right into the top corner – and finished top of the league. Sales of the soccer simulation were slightly down compared to last year's entry, but it sold best on the PlayStation 4, and by all accounts still did pretty darn well...

  • News Actually, the PS4's Price Isn't Dropping in the UK

    Not yet, anyway

    Remember last week when Sony seemed to suggest that the PlayStation 4's price was dropping in the UK? Well, it's not. The manufacturer told Eurogamer.net that its Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection packages – which will cost £299.99 for a 500GB model, and £329.99 for a 1TB edition – are taking advantage of a pro

  • UK Sales Charts Destiny: The Taken King Takes the Crown

    More than half the copies sold on PS4

    Activision unveiled some pretty impressive statistics for Destiny: The Taken King last week, so it's no surprise to see the first-person semi-sequel shoot to the top of the UK sales charts. The game sold best on the PlayStation 4 – surprise, surprise – scooping up a whopping 57 per cent of the sales...

  • News PS4 Appears to Be Getting a Price Drop in the UK

    Count the pennies and all that

  • UK Sales Charts Tearaway Unfolded Flops Like Wet Paper

    Paper cut

    Perhaps the PlayStation Vita's miniscule install base wasn't Tearaway's problem after all, as Sony just can't seem to get this property to connect. PlayStation 4 remix Tearaway Unfolded – which released in the UK last week amid widespread critical acclaim – limped into the UK sales charts, finishing in 33rd position. Considering...

  • UK Sales Charts Metal Gear Solid V Takes a Chopper to the Top

    72% of sales were on PS4

    Who didn't see this one coming? Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has tiptoed straight into number one here in the UK following its launch on the 1st September. Equally unsurprising is that 72 per cent of the stealth-'em-up's sales were on the PlayStation 4. However, Kojima's latest didn't sell quite well enough to beat...

  • UK Sales Charts Until Dawn Spooks the Second Spot

    Shock scare

    Considering ten days ago virtually everyone expected Until Dawn to flop, the Supermassive Games developed schlock horror has enjoyed something of a surprise turnaround.

  • News 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...

    Blast from the past

    Xbox One exclusive Rare Replay shot straight to the top of the UK sales charts in a desperately slow summer week, securing the legendary British developer's first number one since Banjo-Kazooie all the way back in 1998.

    Sony's proving a particularly fierce competitor in the UK, as it refuses to let Microsoft get a foothold.

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