  • Japanese Sales Charts Musou Stars Barely Shines as PS4 Has a Quiet Week

    Slow and steady

    There's no point in trying to sugarcoat it: these latest Japanese sales charts really aren't all that interesting. Two new PlayStation 4 titles made it into the software top ten, with hack and slash crossover Musou Stars entering in second place while the terribly named Blue Reflection: Sword of the Girl Who Dances in Illusions...

    It's a big'un

    Good grief, this week's European PlayStation Store update is so big that there's even a bloody PlayStation 3 game. Could it be one of the last ever? That game is of course Persona 5, which is also due out on the PlayStation 4. Other goodies this week include PaRappa the Rapper Remastered, Blackwood Crossing, LEGO City Undercover,...

  • 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...

    Floating balls, exploding balls, knights, and samurai

    We've been saying this for a while now, but the PlayStation 4 really has got off to a great start in 2017. January was bursting at the seams with quality titles, and although February hasn't quite had the same level of success, it's still presented us with a slew of solid releases. Oh, and...

  • Store Update 28th February 2017 (Europe)

    Zero dawn

    There can be no doubts about what's the biggest new game on the European PlayStation Store this week: it's Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Other new titles this time include Night in the Woods – we're hoping to bring you a review of...

  • UK Sales Charts For Honor Sticks a Sword in the Summit for a Second Week

    Calm before the storm

    Despite a 72 per cent drop in sales week over week, no title could take For Honor's seat at the summit of the UK sales charts. Xbox One and PC exclusive Halo Wars 2 gave its best shot, but fell short of its predecessor's already modest first week tally, while Grand Theft Auto V, FIFA 17, and Sniper Elite 4 didn't have the...

    That time again

    Surely it's not time for another PlayStation Plus update? Apparently, it is – but then we suppose February is the shortest month of the year.

    Nioh keeps slashing in second

    Not content with conquering the UK charts earlier this week, For Honor has fought its way to first place in the Japanese charts too, selling 40,062 copies on PlayStation 4. Not a huge number, but Ubisoft's latest had no real competition, with the likes of Nioh following just behind. Team Ninja's well received action...

    Psychonauts! Ys Origins! More!

    With both Horizon: Zero Dawn and NieR: Automata still a little way away, this week's European PlayStation Store update is without any real heavy hitters. That said, there are still a lot of smaller titles to choose from, and it's a particularly strong restock for PlayStation VR. Pyschonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin is...

  • UK Sales Charts For Honor Swings an Axe at the Top Spot

    Sniper Elite 4 in second

    There are no upsets in the UK sales charts this week, as Ubisoft's For Honor has stormed the best sellers list, fighting its way to the summit. Sniper Elite 4 scoped out second place, pushing last week's frontrunner Grand Theft Auto V down into third. FIFA 17 and Battlefield 1 rounded out the top five, with Resident Evil 7:...

    Resident Evil 7 topped the NPD sales charts in January 2017, though hardware declined during the tracked period again. Consumers spent $610.7 million on gaming goods in the United States throughout the month, down four per cent compared to the same period the year prior.

  • Japanese Sales Charts Nioh Takes a Stab at Second Place

    PS4 continues to top hardware

    Unfortunately for PlayStation 4 exclusive Nioh, it's had to go up against a new Dragon Quest game during its first week on the Japanese market, meaning that it was never going to snatch that coveted top spot. The critically acclaimed action title skewered second place, selling 75,477 copies - not a gigantic amount,...

    Resident Evil 7: Biohazard has remained at the top of the Japanese software charts, selling a further 52,665 copies on PlayStation 4.

    Dead rising

    Resident Evil 7 has managed to cling on to the top of the UK sales charts this week, putting it in pole position to secure three consecutive weeks at the summit.

    Capcom's latest stalks the summit

    There's only one new release worth talking about in the latest Japanese software charts, and that's Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. Capcom's well-received horror title entered in first place on PlayStation 4, selling 216,314 copies. Relatively speaking, it's not a bad number - most games these days do a lot less - but...

    Japanese games generally sell best on the PlayStation 4 but Resident Evil is one of those rare Eastern franchises that commands just as much interest in the West as it does in the East.

    PS4 still the hardware king

    Gravity Rush 2 has floated straight to the top of the latest Japanese software charts, shifting 74,361 copies.

    There can be no question that 2017 has started strongly on the PlayStation 4, but this week's selection of new software is particularly insane.

    Gravity Rush 2, for all of its critical acclaim, was always going to be an impossible sell, and unfortunately the superhero sequel has failed to break the UK sales charts top ten.

    Star wars

    As far as "classic video game genres" go, top-down space shooters are a bread-and-butter staple of the medium.

Within that landscape, any game of that type will have to do...
