Where's Gone Home?

Seeing as Majesco's done a Jennifer Lawrence and decided to stop responding to our emails, we were looking forward to waking up, buying Gone Home, and bringing you a review later today. Unfortunately, SCEE's rained on our parade as the game won't be joining its North American counterpart in the PlayStation Store's abode today...

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...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 100

Triple digits

We've only gone and reached our 100th edition of WAYP – an occasion that would be worth marking if this author hadn't got in a muddle and assumed that this week's instalment was actually Issue 99.

PS4 Sells Over 1 Million Units in Japan in 2015

Could be worse

Okay, okay, we get that the Japanese console market is in decline - we just posted a story about it, in fact - but Sony will at least feel that something positive has been achieved with the PlayStation 4 in 2015. The company's newest system sold 1.2 million units in Japan last year according to Famitsu's annual hardware and software...

Japan's Console Market Wasn't Too Hot in 2015

Lowest figures in 26 years

We all know at this point that Japan's console market has shrunk. We could go on and on about the factors that have lead to such a decline, but let's just cut straight to the chase: 2015 saw the market hit a 26 year low. What this means is that the overall value of the market continued to fall, with it being worth ¥321...

5th January 2016 (Europe)

Back in business

It's the first European PlayStation Store update of the year, which means that we're nervously eyeing the date in the headline to ensure that we don't write '2015'. To be fair, it's a decent refresh, too, with Hardware: Rivals and Amplitude all on the docket. What will you be celebrating the onset of the new year with? PS4 Games:...

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...
