  • Japanese Sales Charts Conan Exiles Cleaves Its Way to Number 1 on PS4

    Well, okay then

    Well, we're not quite sure how, but Conan Exiles has leapt straight to number 1 in Japan on PlayStation 4. The survival role-playing game (you know, the one with visible penises) moved 32,000 copies on Sony's system, and that was enough to secure the throne. My Hero Academia: One's Justice also made the top 5 on PS4, but only...

  • UK Sales Charts Shenmue and F1 2018 Bring the Bandicoot Crashing Down

    Eight weeks at number one

    The UK's bank holiday weekend meant a delay in the chart data, but it's here, and there's a bit of a shake-up. F1 2018 took pole position in its first week on sale, and Shenmue I & II wasn't far behind, debuting at number two in the chart. This of course means that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy's reign is over; it's...

  • News PSVR Starter Packs Are on Sale in the UK Right Now

    Virtual insanity

    PlayStation VR’s software catalogue grows by the day, and the slate of upcoming PSVR games makes for impressive reading as well. There’s never been a better time to test out Sony’s virtual reality accessory, then, and the good news is that the device is on sale in the UK right now. For the lowly sum of £199.99 you’ll be...

  • News July 2018 NPD: PS4 Can't Make It Six Months in a Row

    Still the best-selling system of the year, though

    We figured that the PlayStation 4, in its fifth term, was going to make way for the newer Nintendo Switch in the NPD hardware charts this year, but it’s actually maintained its position at the top for much of 2018 thus far. A slow July means that it couldn’t quite make it six months in a row,...

  • News PS4 Passes 7 Million Units Sold in Japan

    Not too bad

    Taking the latest Japanese sales charts into account, the PlayStation 4 has passed 7 million units sold in Japan. Sony's current-gen console launched on the 22nd February, 2014 in the Land of the Rising Sun, so it's been available for around four and a half years at this point. It's no secret that home console sales aren't nearly...

  • Japanese Sales Charts PS4 Sees a Slight Boost During Holiday Week

    And that's about it

    It's been a slow week for video games in Japan due to Obon, one of the nation's traditional holidays. As such, there were no new software releases. On the PlayStation side of things, the only game really worth mentioning is the Yakuza 3 remaster on PlayStation 4, which dropped from first all the way down to 14th. As...

  • UK Sales Charts Not Much Doing As Crash Bashes the Competition

    Bumper Wumpa

    Imagine being one of those people who didn’t believe in Crash Bandicoot prior to its PlayStation 4 revival. The maniacal marsupial has just secured his eighth consecutive week at the top of the UK sales charts, and this is all fuelled by the recent Nintendo Switch and Xbox One versions – let’s not forget that the character killed...

  • News Monster Hunter: World Breaks 10 Million Copies Sold

    Huge for Capcom

    As if there was any denying the huge success of Monster Hunter: World at this point, Capcom has confirmed that the game has now sold over 10 million copies. The recent release of the title's PC version has bolstered that figure by at least a million units -- the game sat at around 8 million copies in July -- but it's still...

  • News PSVR Passes Three Million Units Milestone

    Almost 22 million pieces of software sold

    PlayStation VR has sold over three million units worldwide since its launch in 2016, with over 21.9 million virtual reality games and experiences sold to date. That means each headset owner purchases an average of seven pieces of software, which is a pretty high attach rate. It shows that people who own the...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Yakuza 3 PS4 Remaster Punches Its Way to Number 1

    Kaz is back again

    Whenever a new Yakuza game launches in Japan, it usually jumps straight to the top of the software charts, and the PlayStation 4 remaster of Yakuza 3 has done just that. That said, it only moved 26,000 copies, which is very low for a Yakuza title, but perhaps not unexpected given that it's a remaster. The wacky Fire Pro Wrestling...

  • UK Sales Charts Overcooked 2 and We Happy Few Can't Stop Crash Bandicoot's Reign

    Putting on a brave face

    The latest information from the weekly UK games charts is finally available, and guess who's sat in the number one throne? Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is now on its seventh consecutive week in first place, and that's despite several new releases coming and going in the meantime. Overcooked 2 and We Happy Few managed to...

  • PlayStation Store Sales Charts GTAV Sticks Around After Hours

    Lock in

    There’s just no stopping it, is there? Grand Theft Auto V has topped the PlayStation Store sales charts in Europe and North America for July, almost five years after its original release. The title was presumably buoyed by the After Hours expansion that launched recently for Grand Theft Auto Online, although Red Dead Redemption 2...

  • News Sony Has Sold Over 525 Million Consoles to Date

    #Winning

    Want to know how successful PlayStation is? Sony has sold over half-a-billion systems since the division started in 1994, which is a figure being commemorated by a new Limited Edition PlayStation 4 Pro set to launch later this month. The exact number accurate as of 22nd July is 525.3 million units, and it accounts for PSone, PS2, PSP, PS3,...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Mega Man X Drops Like a Rock on PS4, Nintendo Domination Resumes

    Feeling blue

    Well, Mega Man X Legacy Collection's reign at the top of the Japanese software charts didn't last long, did it? One week later and Capcom's remastered collection dropped all the way from number 1 to number 20, shifting just 4700 additional copies. Its fall from the top 10 meant that Nintendo could continue its recent domination...

  • UK Sales Charts Crash Bandicoot Earns Sixth Consecutive Number One in Uneventful Week

    King Crash

    The summer games drought is in full force, as evidenced by a fairly stagnant UK chart. Once again, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy claims the top spot, and LEGO The Incredibles is standing strong in second place. The rest of the chart is similarly predictable, and you can probably guess the top 10. Hello Neighbor debuted in 16th, and No...

  • News NBA 2K18 Slam Dunks 10 Million Units Worldwide

    Backboard breaker

    NBA 2K18 may have found itself at the centre of a microtransaction storm, but the series is still ballin’, with the latest edition selling a milestone 10 million units worldwide. That’s a franchise record, and double the average number of sales for all previous versions. “NBA 2K18 is our highest-selling sports title ever,”...

  • News June 2018 NPD: PS4 Outsells All Current-Gen Competitors

    But can't beat the NES

    We really thought this would be the year where the PlayStation 4 starts to slow down a bit, but Sony’s console has continued to storm the United States hardware charts, beating all of its current-gen competitors for a fifth successive month. Amazingly, the system was actually outsold by the NES Classic in June 2018, although...

  • Japanese Sales Charts Mega Man X Dashes into Number 1 on PS4

    Mega, man

    The Nintendo domination of the last few weeks has finally come to an end, as Mega Man X Legacy Collection has blasted its way straight to number one on PlayStation 4. Capcom's bundle of blue sold 29,000 copies on Sony's system, which, in fairness, isn't a huge amount, but given decidedly low numbers elsewhere, it was still enough to...

  • UK Sales Charts Detroit: Become Human Breaks God of War's No.1 Streak

    Robot revolution

    The UK's latest physical games chart is in, and a trio of new releases finally puts an end to Kratos' five week reign atop the best sellers. Replacing it in the top spot is Detroit: Become Human, Quantic Dream's newest story-driven adventure title. According to GamesIndustry.biz, the sci-fi drama is roughly selling in line with the...

  • News God of War Surpasses 5 Million Units in a Month

    King Kratos

    God of War is a smash hit of the highest magnitude. Following on from the title’s impressive launch, where it sold 3.1 million units in just three days, PlayStation chief John Kodera has revealed that its numbers have now surpassed five million units in its first month on sale. To put this into perspective, it’s already more or less...
