Japanese Sales Charts: Vita Overtakes PS4 as Not a Single New-Gen Title Enters Top 20

Ouch

The PlayStation 4's steadily slipping down the Japanese charts, as it suffered another sales drop last week. Sony's latest console shifted 15,992 units as it fell into third place, behind the New 3DS LL and the PS Vita. The latter continues to escape store shelves at a solid rate, though, selling through 17,273 units. You can compare the...

13th May 2015 (Europe)

Tasty stuff

If you like indie games, you're in luck this week, as there are a lot of them being added as part of the European PlayStation Store update. Nom Nom Galaxy, Lost Orbit, and Toren are perhaps the biggest names in that department – but a quick shout out to Schrodinger's Cat, too. Of

Store Update: 12th May 2015 (North America)

12th May 2015 (North America)

We go again

People say that the PlayStation 4 has no games, but we often look at the North American PlayStation Store update and weep. Our review planning document can't keep up with all the new arrivals, and when you take a look at the sheer scale of new releases available in this week's refresh, you may be able to appreciate why. Of course, it's...

Out This Week: Final Fantasy X|X-2 PS4, The Last of Us: Left Behind, Double Dragon

Final Fantasy X|X-2 PS4, The Last of Us: Left Behind, Double Dragon

Yuna you want it

It's a bit of a filler week here on Planet PlayStation, as a storm labelled The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt lurks on the horizon. There's no doubt that CD Projekt RED's hotly anticipated role-playing release is the title that's on everyone's lips, and so proceedings are looking a little light this time out. To be fair, though, there's no...

UK Sales Charts: Project CARS Roars to Pole Position on PS4

Racing ahead

Crowd funded racing game Project CARS has pulled ahead of the pack, scoring the first simulation podium position since GRID 2 all the way back in 2013. The title sold best on the PlayStation 4 – which is not especially surprising considering the lack of similar games on Sony's system – and finished in front of familiar favourites...

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Gamescom, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood

Geralt the grey

This week will be remembered as the one in which The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt fever set in. Associate editor Robert Ramsey has been uploading every video and image under the sun, and much to this author's amazement, you lot keep darn well clicking on them. Sony also sent a few ripples through the industry by announcing that it won't be...

What Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue 67

Red faced

Whoops! This author totally forgot about WAYP this week, meaning that he was forced to send an embarrassed email to the rest of the team this morning, begging for submissions. Fortunately, a handful of scribes followed through, which means our weekend feature is still yet to miss a week. This is impressive form considering how forgetful...

Game of the Month: April 2015

April 2015

Fatalities and shovels, not necessarily in that order

Oooh, those bloody indies, eh? Ruining everyone's fun with their SNES graphics and their obsession with pop culture references. "We're not ripping off old games!" they cry. "We're paying homage! It's different!" Meanwhile, the stoic and the knowledgeable among us shake our heads in disgust as...

Ar nosurge Plus Is Getting a Limited Physical Edition After All, But Only In North America

Be reasonable

Yesterday, Koei Tecmo announced that it was bringing Ar nosurge Plus West, but it would only be available digitally. That's unfortunately still the case in Europe, but North America will actually be treated to a limited physical release courtesy of NIS America. It's quite a neat little package, too, although it doesn't include...
