News Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Sells a Few Units, People Like Robots
Oh, right – the Japanese sales charts. Ramsey would rampage if he knew we'd skipped this weekly staple, so let's break it down: PlayStation 4 is continuing to sell steady in the East, and should break the three million unit milestone imminently; local gamers have been snapping up a game called Super Robot Wars OG: The Moon Dwellers in...
News UK Sales Charts: LEGO Star Wars Forces Its Way to the Top
LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens has enjoyed the fourth biggest launch in UK LEGO game history and the fourth biggest launch in UK Star Wars game history – the fourth was clearly on its side. It pushed last week's front runner DOOM down into, er, fourth, while FIFA 16 and Overwatch hung around in second and third respectively...
News Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Refuses to Fall Despite Nintendo Software Dominance
PS4 sales actually increase
The PlayStation 4 is suffering from a real software drought in Japan right now, but Sony's latest console just refuses to budge from the top of the hardware charts. PS4 sales actually increased by around 2000 units despite the fact that the dismal Umbrella Corps was the only current-gen entry in the top ten - and even...
News UK Sales Charts: DOOM Keeps Up the Slaughter as Rocket League Boosts into Top 10
DOOM has managed to retain its place at the top of the UK software charts, much to the disappointment of FIFA 16, which, we imagine in part thanks to Euro 2016, has been steadily moving towards the summit. Sales of id Software's shooter actually declined rather sharply, but the drop wasn't enough to knock the game from its impressive...
News Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Returns to Top Spot Despite Distinct Lack of New Games
Here we are again
It's been another incredibly quiet week for PlayStation in Japan as only one new title, Root Letter, released on Sony's latest system - and those sales figures aren't even worth mentioning. As you'd expect, Dragon Quest Heroes II remains the PS4's most popular release for the third week running, while Overwatch also stuck around in...
News UK Sales Charts: DOOM for Overwatch as id's Shooter Claims Throne
Hell hath no fury
Retail promotions have propelled DOOM to the top of the UK sales charts, ending Overwatch's spell at the summit. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End moved up into third, while FIFA 16 and Grand Theft Auto V enjoyed boosts as well. Mirror's Edge Catalyst subsequently dropped into sixth, as Call of Duty: Black Ops III, the Euro 20
News Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Slips to Second Place as New Software Dries Up
Sony loses pole position for first time in weeks
Apologies for diverting your attention away from the E3 hype, but we've got to cover the latest Japanese sales charts. We're not really sure why we're bothering, though, as there really isn't much to talk about on the PlayStation front. Sony's home console dropped to second place in the hardware...
News UK Sales Charts: Mirror's Edge Catalyst Can't Outrun Overwatch
Uncharted 4 drops into fourth
Mirror's Edge Catalyst couldn't outpace Overwatch in this week's UK sales charts, meaning that Blizzard's popular first-person shooter has secured a third week at the summit. Uncharted 4: A Thief's End dropped down into fourth this time, but it remains the best-selling individual game, which is some feat given that it's...
News May 2016 NPD: Uncharted 4 Helps US Industry Swing Upwards
No comment from Sony again
After April 2016's desperately dire NPD report, the US industry has rebounded in May, with total physical spend up four per cent year-over-year – raking in a handsome $528.6 million. While hardware and accessories declined yet again (by 10 per cent and two per cent respectively), it was software that propelled the...
News Japanese Sales Charts: No Competition for Dragon Quest Heroes II at the Top
Overwatch and Uncharted 4 also stick around
Dragon Quest Heroes II has enjoyed its second successive week at the top of the Japanese software charts, selling through another 43,640 copies on PlayStation 4, while the Vita and PlayStation 3 versions settled in second and third place, respectively. Good stuff for Square Enix's long running property,...
News UK Sales Charts: Overwatch Out for Uncharted 4, DOOM
Evergreen arrivals continue to dominate
We have a sneaking suspicion that the UK sales charts have found three new permanent fixtures: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, DOOM, and Overwatch. While Blizzard's FPS is only in its second week – and has managed to secure top spot yet again – the other two titles have been loitering around for some time now...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Dragon Quest Heroes II Conquers the Top Spot with Ease
Overwatch also blasts into top 5
Realistically, there was only ever going to be one game to take the top spot of the latest Japanese software charts: Dragon Quest Heroes II. The super slimy sequel smashed into first place on PlayStation 4, selling through a very respectable 184,820 copies. It was followed by the Vita version in second, and the...
News UK Sales Charts: Overwatch Bumps Uncharted 4 from Summit
Almost 50 per cent of physical sales on PS4
Channelling its best Reinhardt impression, Overwatch has swatted Uncharted 4: A Thief's End from the top of the UK sales charts. Naughty Dog's impressive action adventure was frozen in second place by Mei, while the popular FPS used Widowmaker's rifle to get a good view from the summit. Word of mouth kept...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Uncharted 4 Holds on to the Top Spot for Second Week Running
Drake's moderate fortune
Anyone who's played an Uncharted game will know of Nathan Drake's insane ability to grip even the smallest environmental outcrop, but rather than hanging on for dear life, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is actually enjoying its time at the top of the Japanese software charts for the second week in a row. The PlayStation 4...
News UK Sales Charts: Uncharted 4 Clings on to Top Spot
Sony's enjoying a real strong spell at the top of the UK sales charts, as Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is the latest title from the publisher to enjoy successive weeks at the summit. Sales for Nate Drake's latest did drop sharply after its record breaking launch, meaning that DOOM was clipping at its heels – but Naughty Dog's outstanding...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Uncharted 4 Climbs Above the Competition
PS4 sticks to the top, too
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has enjoyed reasonably healthy opening sales in Japan, claiming the top spot on the software charts and selling through 128,725 copies. While not a huge amount, it's a good start for the PlayStation 4 exclusive, and we'd wager that it'll stick around in the top 20 for a couple of weeks at least...
News UK Sales Charts: Uncharted 4 Smashes Predecessor's Sales on PS4
Draking it in
With some inevitability, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has become the fastest selling entry in Naughty Dog's popular action adventure series to date in the UK, with sales of the PlayStation 4 exclusive bettering those of PlayStation 3 predecessor Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception by 66 per cent. That puts the game in a very handsome...
News April 2016 NPD: Dark Souls III, Ratchet & Clank, MLB 16 The Show Up Top for PS4
Update: PS4 was best selling console
Sony slumped to a shock defeat in April 2015's unexpected NPD sales report, but this year all three major console manufacturers have declined to comment on hardware numbers. Whatever the reason for that, the manufacturer can take heart from some pretty outstanding software performers – including Ratchet &...
News Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Still Top Despite a Total Lack of New Games
It's been a boring few weeks for the Japanese hardware and software charts, and we're afraid that there's no excitement to be found this time around, either. PlayStation 4 sales dropped by about 4000 units, but Sony's latest system still managed to stick to the top spot - that is, if you don't count New 3DS and New 3DS LL numbers as one...
News UK Sales Charts: Battleborn Reaches Number One, But...
Ratchet & Clank still best selling individual game
We're not entirely sure how, but Battleborn has managed to top the UK sales charts. There is a big "but" that simply must follow this sentence, however, as Ratchet & Clank was still the best-selling game of the week in terms of individual units. What does this mean, then? Basically, the only...
News Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Still Number One After a Slow Few Weeks
King of the hill
The gaming market's been relatively quiet in Japan over the last few weeks as far as PlayStation goes, but despite a lack of new, blockbuster software, Sony's latest machine has remained at the top of the hardware charts - and that was the case again last week. The only new PS4 title worth mentioning is Konami's fun looking baseball...
News UK Sales Charts: Ratchet & Clank Stays Top for a Second Week
Crank it up
There ain't no budging Ratchet & Clank from the summit of the UK sales charts, as it's scored a second successive week at the top following its first ever number one last time. The game's sales only dipped by 50 per cent compared to its launch week, which is really rather impressive – games tend to drop off in sales quickly...
News Japanese Sales Charts: One Piece: Burning Blood Blows Away the Competition on PS4, Vita
Hoist the sales
One Piece: Burning Blood leapt to the top of the Japanese software charts last week, claiming the first and second spots on PlayStation 4 and Vita respectively. The Bandai Namco brawler only sold marginally better on Sony's home console, though, with total sales across both platforms breaking 68,000 copies. It's not a bad start by...
News UK Sales Charts: Ratchet & Clank Secures Series First Number One
Up your arsenal, everyone
Ratchet & Clank has got off to an interstellar start in the UK sales charts, securing the series' first ever number one by outselling Ratchet & Clank: A Crack in Time by a factor of three. The colourful platformer has been hovering around the British best sellers list for almost 15 years, but Insomniac Games'...
News Japanese Sales Charts: All's Quiet on the Eastern Front
PS4 stays top, though
It's been another quiet week in Japan for PlayStation and the market in general, as a dearth of new blockbuster releases ensured that the software charts looked particularly dismal. The PlayStation 4 saw three fresh entries in Divinity: Original Sin - Enhanced Edition, République, and Skullgirls 2nd Encore, but none of them...
News UK Sales Charts: Dark Souls III Dominates on PS4
Over 70 per cent of copies sold on Sony's system
It's no surprise given the series' history, but Dark Souls III absolutely dominated on the PlayStation 4 during launch week. Bandai Namco's hotly anticipated sequel – which topped the UK sales charts, outpacing Dark Souls II's debut by 61 per cent – moved 71 per cent of its units on Sony's new-gen...
News March 2016 NPD: Sony Scores Hat-Trick as The Division Propels PS4 to Third Win of the Year
"Thank you to our fans"
Sony won its third NPD report of the year, as the PlayStation 4 was the best-selling console in the United States for the month of March. Despite this, hardware sales actually declined by 19 per cent year-over-year, due to the lower prices of consoles across the board. Fortunately, an 8 per cent increase in software revenue...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Far Cry Primal Features in Tame Week
Not so wild
Yes! Your humble host has managed to wrestle this week's Japanese sales charts from associate editor Robert Ramsey's iron clasp for the first time in years; unfortunately, it's a rubbish one. Far Cry Primal was the highest charting new game for the week ending 10th April, moving 25,302 units on the PlayStation 4. The other big story is...
News UK Sales Charts: DiRT Rally Prompts Photo Finish with Quantum Break
Less than a nose in it
It was practically even-stevens between DiRT Rally and Quantum Break in this week's UK sales charts, as the Remedy developed Xbox One exclusive outsold Codemasters' rally return-to-form by just 139 units. It's worth remembering, of course, that the racer released on multiple platforms, while Jack Joyce's debut did not. Still,...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Star Ocean 5 Blasts Off as PS4 Stays Strong
Star Ocean 5: Integrity and Faithlessness has enjoyed a decent opening in Japan on PlayStation 4. Square Enix's action role-playing game entered the software charts in second place, selling through a reasonably respectable 113,022 copies. The PlayStation 3 version isn't due out until later this month, so it'll be interesting to see how...
News UK Sales Charts: The Division, Far Cry Primal Put Ubi on Top
Ubisoft is on fire, isn't it? The French publisher tends to quietly go about its business these days, smashing records and releasing games that refuse to be removed from the UK sales charts. Take this week's top ten: The Division is in first for a fourth consecutive week, but Far Cry Primal has quietly climbed into second as...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Dark Souls III Does Massive Damage as PS4 Comes Out on Top
Anything but dead
The latest Japanese software charts are in, and Dark Souls III has done incredibly well for itself. The action role-playing game, which isn't officially out here in the West until next month, sold through a very impressive 210,141 copies. That's a fantastic start for From Software's latest adventure, but despite shifting so many...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Digimon Battles it Out with Pokémon at the Top
Welcome to the 90s
Being a single format site, you'll never see news purely related to the likes of Nintendo on Push Square, but that doesn't mean we can't look at the latest Japanese software charts and smile. Battling it out for the top spot this time around are Pokken Tournament and Digimon World: Next Order, automatically casting our minds back...
News UK Sales Charts: The Division Causes UFC 2 to Submit
Twisted its arm
The Division is very much the flavour of the month, so it's no surprise to see it fend off EA Sports UFC 2 in the latest UK sales chart, which finished in second. The sequel bettered sales of its predecessor by 53 per cent, but that wasn't anywhere near enough to overcome Ubisoft's looter shooter. Further down, Call of Duty: Black...
News Japanese Sales Charts: The Division Puts a Bullet in the Competition on PS4
Tom Clancy's The Division has started life impressively well in Japan, topping the software charts on PlayStation 4. Ubisoft's role-playing shooter hybrid sold through a very healthy 80,703 copies, which was more than enough to place it above the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. Elsewhere, the new Summon Night game...
News UK Sales Charts: The Division Breaks Records and Sells Best on PS4
Nothing divisive about this
Ubisoft has ended up with two games at the top of the latest UK software charts, with Tom Clancy's The Division and Far Cry Primal leading the pack. The former has actually broken Gran Turismo 4's record for having the biggest ever Quarter 1 launch in the UK, which has been in place since 2005. Overall, though, The...
News February 2016 NPD: PS4 Extends Its Lead as US Sales Shrink
Sony's system up year-over-year yet again
We suppose that these NPD reports are starting to get a little bittersweet. As has been the case since launch, the PlayStation 4 is really thriving in the United States, and it's once again managed to register yet another consecutive month of growth. But while the graphs at Sony keep pointing upwards, the...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Gundam Breaks into the Top Spot as PS4 and Vita Lead the Way
Meching up the numbers
Ah, nothing like a good Gundam game to shake up the Japanese hardware and software charts, eh? Gundam Breaker 3 blasted into first and second place on PlayStation 4 and Vita respectively, selling through a reasonably impressive 141,219 copies in total - now we just need to hope that the mech-'em-up has found enough success to...
News UK Sales Charts: Heavy Rain, Beyond PS4 Chart as Far Cry Primal Stays Strong
Far Cry Primal stayed top of the club in this week's UK sales charts, fending off strong competition from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. Evergreen action game Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 slipped down into third, while favourites Call of Duty: Black Ops III and FIFA 16 rounded out the top ten. There was
News Street Fighter V Seems to Have Flopped Pretty Freakin' Hard
Street Fighter V got off to a shoddy start in the UK sales charts, and did similarly sucky in its home nation of Japan. However, we'd secretly been hoping that it would find its feet on the PlayStation Store, but that doesn't appear to be the case. In fact, the mechanically m
News Japanese Sales Charts: Unimpressive Software Numbers Can't Stop PS4
Sony sticks to the top
There's not really too much to say about the latest Japanese hardware and software charts, but we'll be damned if we're going to miss out on this weekly article. Starting on the software side of things, the top 20 was bombarded by the new Kamen Rider game, which is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita, but...
News UK Sales Charts: Far Cry Primal Shows Its Teeth to Plants vs. Zombies
All change, please
This week's UK sales chart is a little bit different, much to the relief of every single one of you who reads these articles. Far Cry Primal has roared its way to the top of the club, etching its name in the number one slot like a hasty cave painting. It bettered Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, which entered in second...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Street Fighter V Falls Short on PS4
Not quite a knockout
We're afraid that it's yet more disappointing news for Street Fighter V, as its opening Japanese sales figures are in. We already know that the brawler hasn't done especially well here in the UK, and it turns out that it hasn't quite set Japan alight, either. Capcom's latest sold through 41,990 copies on PlayStation 4, which...
News UK Sales Charts: Street Fighter V Cowers to the Power of Street Fighter IV
Maybe it should reconsider its fist?
Street Fighter V hasn't got off to a great start in the UK sales charts, failing to KO Street Fighter IV's week one sales record all the way back in 2009. While some will see this as a sharp decline, it's perhaps worth remembering that the game did only release on one system, and will have seen a much larger...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Valkyria Chronicles Remastered Rolls into the Charts on PS4
Tanks very much
Last week was pretty quiet for new releases in the Land of the Rising Sun, with the likes of Dragon Quest Builders and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 still hanging around in the software top ten. There was one new PlayStation entry worthy of note, however: Valkyria Chronicles Remastered. The remastered edition of the PS3...
News UK Sales Charts: Killzone Re-Enters as Call of Duty Holds
There's very little to see in the UK sales charts this week, as Call of Duty: Black Ops III earned its tenth top spot since launch. The title is on sale on the PlayStation 4 right now, so is enjoying something of a second wind. It'll be interesting to see whether Street Fighter V can overcome it, but we're expecting the Capcom brawler to...
News Microsoft's Minecraft Rules the PlayStation Store Charts
The Witness off to a reasonable start
At this point, we have a feeling that practically everyone on the planet owns Minecraft two times over. The bricklaying blockbuster, which is a permanent fixture in the retail space as well, has dominated the PlayStation Store charts for January, finishing in first on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in North...
News January 2016 NPD: PS4 Secures First Victory of the Year with 'Impressive' Growth
Start as you mean to go on
Sony's started 2016 much in the same way as it finished the previous year: with an NPD victory. The industry intelligence group tracks retail sales in the United States, and have declared the PlayStation 4 the best-selling system throughout the month of January. This, obviously, doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Naruto Storms to the Top Alongside PS4
Dragon Quest Builders also staying strong
The PlayStation 4 has had another reasonably solid week in Japan, with Sony's latest console shifting 31,158 units - enough to ensure its place at the top of the charts. Sales did see a slight decline compared to the week prior, but that's to be expected seeing as juggernaut release Dragon Quest Builders...
News UK Sales Charts: Naruto Shippuden Soars as Gravity Rush Stumbles
It's a fairly pleasant UK sales chart for fans of Japanese games this week: Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 burst its way into third position, proving that Robert Ramsey isn't the only person on the planet that cares for these games. Call of Duty: Black Ops III and LEGO Marvel's Avengers finished ahead of the anime brawler, while...
