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 we're barely out of the slow summer period, that's particularly dire.
Of course, all hope is not lost, as the game is aimed at children and will probably continue to sell throughout the entire lifespan of the Japanese giant's new-gen system; LittleBigPlanet 3, which struggled at launch last Christmas, has been a permanent fixture in the UK sales charts this year, for example. There's still hope for this underappreciated franchise yet, then.
There's good news for fellow PS4 exclusive Until Dawn at least, as word of mouth has ensured that the schlocky horror holds on to fifth in the best sellers list. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain maintained its position at the summit, with Mad Max and Disney Infinity 3.0 flanking just behind. The top ten was padded out by the usual suspects: Grand Theft Auto V, LEGO Jurassic World, and Minecraft.
