This Is the Flashiest PS Plus Voucher You'll Ever Buy

For the old-school players

Buying digital goods physically is rarely all that appealing in our opinion, but Sony's come up with a way to turn a bog standard PlayStation Plus voucher into a collector's item. Available from GAME in the UK now for an eye watering £59.99, the 20th Anniversary PlayStation Steelbook includes a 12 month membership to...

Have you been anti-PlayStation Now from the outset? Well, the service now has an opportunity to win you over if you're in the UK, as Sony's just rolled out a subscription option with a free trial.

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...

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. The game entered the UK sales charts this week in second, just one spot behind Gears of War: Ultimate Edition – which is obviously both cheaper and based upon an...

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...

UK Sales Charts: There's Nothing to See Here

Zzz

Ah, the British summer – a time where the locals turn out in too few clothes despite there being clouds in the sky and the sales charts hibernate for a few weeks. There's absolutely nothing worth mentioning in this latest top ten, but we'll do our best. LEGO Jurassic World is back at the top, while Grand Theft Auto V's in second. The Elder...

UK Sales Charts: A Rare Change at the Summit

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. Elsewhere, last week's frontrunner LEGO Jurassic World moved down into second, while Batman: Arkham Knight,...

UK Sales Charts: PS4 Hardware Promotions Spur Software Sales

Like hot cakes

Sony's proving a particularly fierce competitor in the UK, as it refuses to let Microsoft get a foothold. You may have seen our story last week on the PlayStation 4's success in Britain, but the Japanese giant's not resting on its laurels. It launched a series of new bundles over the weekend, which spurred PlayStation software up the...

Sony Boasts About Brilliant British PS4 Sales

System's been on top for six months straight now

While we know that the PlayStation 4's crushing its console competition globally, the UK – along with the US – is typically touted as a region where things are a little closer. On the back of today's financial report, however, the platform holder has boasted that it's been on top for six months...

UK Sales Charts: Rory McIlroy on Target as Top Ten Stagnates

Same old story

We have officially hit that part of the summer where there's literally nothing to say about the UK sales charts. EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour is the newest title, so naturally that's sitting on top – but the remainder of the Top Ten paints a frighteningly familiar picture. LEGO Jurassic World, Batman: Arkham Knight, F1 2015,...

Metal Gear Solid V's PS4 Bundle Can Be Pre-Ordered Now in the UK

But it's exclusive to GAME

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's snazzy red and gunmetal grey PlayStation 4 bundle will cost you a bionic arm and a leg when it launches on 1st September in the UK, as it will be exclusive to seasoned extortionists GAME. Actually, we're being the slightest bit melodramatic – it's a bit of a snip at £364.99. The...
