News UK Sales Charts: Bloodborne Swings and Misses for the Top Spot
Battlefield Hardline locks down another win
Bloodborne may have sparked some life and excitement into the industry over the last few weeks, but that hasn't been enough to help it to reach the top of the UK sales charts. The PlayStation 4 exclusive missed out on first place by 22,500 units, as Battlefield Hardline secured the win for the second week...
News Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Dominates as Final Fantasy Type-0 Schools Software
The PlayStation 4's showing no signs of slowing down in its native Japan, as a slew of new releases are keeping the console at the top of the charts. Sony's newest black box sold through 46,395 units last week – a relatively hefty increase from its tally of 33,862 units the week before. Helping it reach that impressive number was...
News UK Sales Charts: Battlefield Hardline Cuffs Itself to the Summit
Taking a hard line
Consumers clearly find Battlefield Hardline arresting, as the Visceral Games developed cops and robbers spin-off has roared right to the top of the UK sales charts. The new release fought off strong competition from Final Fantasy Type-0 HD which entered in second, leaving familiar favourites Grand Theft Auto V, Dying Light, and...
News Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Steadies Its Stance as Yakuza Zero Lashes Out
Sony's console on top again
Sony needed the PlayStation 4 to perform spectacularly throughout March in Japan, and while it's not exactly posting vintage numbers, it's definitely doing decently. The console's sales actually increased marginally over the last week following the release of Yakuza Zero, posting around 33,826 units as per the latest...
News UK Sales Charts: Grand Theft Auto V Steals Back Top Spot
Heists to see you
A slew of retailer promotions, coupled with the addition of its hotly anticipated Heists update, has propelled Grand Theft Auto V back to the top of the UK sales charts. The title snuffed out former frontrunner Dying Light in order to secure its eighth cumulative week at the summit of the British best sellers list, which puts it...
News February 2015 NPD: PS4 Is Best Selling Console as The Order: 1886 Charts
But the Nintendo 3DS sold better
Strong sales of the New Nintendo 3DS – coupled with a handful of major software launches – saw Sony lose its spot atop the United States hardware charts in February, but it still managed to keep hold of its console crown. According to the latest NPD report, the PlayStation 4 was the best selling console...
News The Order: 1886 Is Pushed Aside by Dying Light and Dragon Ball XenoVerse in February's PSN Charts
The undead won't die
Despite launching back in January, zombie hack-'em-up Dying Light managed to hold onto the top sales spot on the North American PlayStation Store through February. While there wasn't much new to see on the PS3 and Vita fronts, with Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto V, and Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment all sitting pretty, the PS4...
News Japanese Sales Charts: PlayStation 4 Stays on Top for Second Week Running
Dragon Quest Heroes still dominating software
It's still a tiny bit too early to say, but it's looking like the PlayStation 4 has managed to get something of a foothold in its native Japan. The sleek home console has got a heck of a lineup over the next few weeks, but it's already kicked things off with Dragon Quest Heroes. Dragon Quest Heroes Is...
News UK Sales Charts: Dying Light Delay Doesn't Stop It From Outselling The Order: 1886 and Evolve
Definitely not dead
In some pretty impressive news, sandbox zombie adventure Dying Light has managed to outsell both The Order: 1886 and Evolve at retail in the UK, despite the physical version of the game being delayed. The digital edition of Techland's undead romp released a month ago, but clearly that hasn't deterred the hordes of shufflers...
News Japanese Sales Charts: As Expected, Dragon Quest Heroes Dominates While PS4 Tops Hardware
Slime money money
Dragon Quest Heroes is off to a fine start in Japan, as sales figures for its first week on the market have been revealed. Square Enix's action role-playing game sold a rather staggering 594,749 copies across both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 3. Although it's worth noting that the colourful release sold best on Sony's...
News UK Sales Charts: Delayed Dying Light Dethrones PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886
Apocalypse at last
Dying Light may be extraordinarily late rising from its grave, but that hasn't stopped the Techland developed title from making an assault on the UK sales charts. The frightening free-runner brushed aside previous best seller The Order: 1886, which slipped all the way into fourth. Given the PlayStation 4 release's short running...
News Japanese Sales Charts: God Eater 2 Prompts PS Vita Sales to Burst
Bandai Namco's hunting reissue God Eater 2: Rage Burst caused PlayStation Vita sales to explode in Japan last week, as Media Create data shows that the handheld moved 35,203 units, up from a dismal 10,901 units the period prior. The game itself sold 234,180 copies on Sony's portable console, but could only muster 37,824 copies on the...
News UK Sales Charts: PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Flags Down a Cab in First
Good work, guv'nor
The Order: 1886 may not have received a critical reception quite on par with The Last of Us, but it is the first Sony title since Naughty Dog's next-gen remaster to reach the top of the UK sales charts. Ready at Dawn's divisive London romp shot straight into first after a heavy marketing campaign, beating out Call of Duty:...
News UK Sales Charts: Evolve Seeks Out the Summit
Finally, the UK sales charts have changed. After weeks and weeks of a samey looking top ten, Evolve and Nintendo's New 3DS have arrived to mix things up. As you'd probably expect, Turtle Rock's four-versus-one affair clawed its way to the top spot, with 48 per cent of copies sold on the PlayStation 4. This was actually one per cent less...
News January 2015 NPD: PS4 Soars Back to US Hardware Sales Summit
Return of the king
Well, that didn't last long, huh? After slipping behind the Xbox One in November and December, Sony has successfully pipped Microsoft's next-gen platform at the post in the January NPD sales report, securing the top hardware spot yet again. For those of you with short memories, the PlayStation 4 dominated the competition in the...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Dragon Ball Xenoverse PS4, PS3 Eases Past 9,000 Units
These next few weeks are going to be massively important for the PlayStation 4 in Japan. For the first time since launch, Sony has actually amassed a decent software lineup for Eastern gamers, and it'll be hoping to see its hardware sales increase as a result. And improve they already have, but only marginally; according to Media Create...
News UK Sales Charts: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Can't Be Passed
Spacey to breathe
Oh, please pull the trigger. The samey UK sales charts have been practically unchanged for months now, with only Evolve offering any immediate hope of respite. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare once again maintained control of the top position, while Grand Theft Auto V and FIFA 15 jostled for space in second and third respectively...
News Far Cry 4 Drives PlayStation 4 Sales Forward in Japan
It's been a bit of a slow start to the year for the PlayStation 4 in Japan, but Sony's got an impressive slate of software lined up, and it's kickstarted things this week with the overseas release of Far Cry 4. According to Media Create numbers, Ajay Ghale's adventure sold 36,239 units on the next-gen console last week, almost double what it...
News UK Sales Charts: There Ain't Nothing to See Here
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare back on top
Dying Light should, by right, have given the UK sales charts a bit of shake up this week, but seeing as it only released digitally in Europe last Wednesday, brace yourselves for a familiar top ten. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare did manage to strong arm Grand Theft Auto V from the summit, following a series...
News UK Sales Charts: Saints Row Misses Out on Four More Years
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected & Gat Out of Hell missed out on the presidency spot in this week's UK sales charts, clawing its way into fourth position overall. Grand Theft Auto V was instead sworn into the White House, completing a third term at the summit of the British best sellers list, while Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and FIFA 15...
News UK Sales Charts: Grand Theft Auto V Sits Pretty at Summit
Zzzzz. Forget about the Green Day song Wake Me Up When September Ends, we're writing a new version, and it's called Wake Me Up When the UK Sales Charts Change. There are no surprises in this week's update, with Grand Theft Auto V, FIFA 15, and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare all finishing at the top. Ubisoft trio Far Cry 4, The Crew, and...
News Destiny and Minecraft Topped 2014's PSN Sales Charts
Another day, another chance to find out 2014 sales data. This time it's quite interesting, though, as Sony has shared lists of the best selling titles on the PlayStation Network. In North America, Destiny blasted the competition and landed in first place on PS4, while in Europe, Minecraft dug its way to victory on every single console...
News December NPD: Sony Looking to Momentous 2015 as PS4 Sits in Second Place
Still best selling box of 2014
There was no major upset in the December NPD report, as the PlayStation 4 slumped to its second defeat of the calendar year. Sony's system was on top for the first ten months of 2014, but lost out to Microsoft's major Xbox One price promotions in November - and that continued through December, too. Despite this, its...
News DriveClub Was the UK's Best Selling Exclusive of 2014
It may come as a shock to many, but DriveClub, the PlayStation 4 exclusive racer that was plagued by launch issues, was the UK's best selling exclusive game of 2014. The full list, which comes from MCV, takes console bundles into account, but doesn't follow digital sales, so we can probably assume that the gorgeous drive-'em-up sold by...
News You Can Probably Guess Which Games Topped the Christmas PSN Charts
Not many surprises here
December was a big month for the PlayStation Network, and not just because it was unavailable during the biggest day of the year. Indeed, the PlayStation Store must make an absolute killing around Christmas, and it looks like 2014 was no different, as some of the biggest games on Sony platforms topped the download charts once...
News UK Sales Charts: Grand Theft Auto V Holds Up Top Spot
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has fallen from its perch atop the UK sales charts, with Grand Theft Auto V throwing it from its throne. Rockstar Games' sublime sandbox has enjoyed a resurgence of late due to the release of its PlayStation 4 port, and is likely to maintain momentum later in the month when the PC version is unleashed. To be...
News UK Sales Charts: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Remains Frosty in First
Crisis averted: the office Internet has been restored. Our first full day back at Push Square Towers has been spent on the phone to ISPs and in retail stores purchasing new routers and kit, but we're finally back in action – a few hours later than expected. Fortunately, it's the start of January not E3, so we haven't really missed much...
News UK Sales Charts: A Familiar Top Five Finishes 2014
Over and out
There are absolutely no upsets in the UK Sales Charts this week, as the top five consists of five very familiar franchises.

Elsewhere, FIFA 15 finished in third, ahead of Ubisoft blockbusters Assassin's Creed Unity and Far...
News UK Sales Charts: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Crashes the Christmas Party
Wow! We thought that FIFA 15 was a lock for the UK Christmas number one, but Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has rocketed jumped out of nowhere and taken the top spot. It pushed EA Sports’ soccer sim down into second, while Grand Theft Auto V held strong in third. Ubisoft blockbusters Far Cry 4 and
News Wait, the PS4's Not Dead in Japan After All?
Signs of life
With smartphones and dedicated handhelds ruling the roost in Japan, it’s been a difficult first year for the PlayStation 4 in its home nation. While the device definitely hasn’t flopped in Sony’s domestic territory, it’s struggled to make its mark, with multiformat titles selling better on the PlayStation 3 – and the next-gen...
News UK Sales Charts: FIFA 15 Still at the Top of the League
No way, José
We hope that you enjoy dreary UK sales charts updates, because we doubt that the top ten’s going to change a whole lot over the next couple of months. FIFA 15 has held onto its place atop the best sellers list this week, battling off Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Grand Theft Auto V, Far Cry 4, and
News November NPD: PS4 Loses to Xbox One for the First Time in Eleven Months
Well, it’s the moment that we’ve all been waiting for: the PlayStation 4’s long-running sales winning streak in the United States has finally come to an end. Sony’s next-gen system had been on top every month of the year so far, but extremely low priced bundles from Microsoft have pushed the Xbox One ahead i
News UK Sales Charts: FIFA 15 Stages a Christmas League Comeback
The Crew cruises into sixth
After a few weeks off the top of the charts, FIFA 15 has staged an impressive comeback – and dethroned its rivals to reach the summit of the UK sales charts yet again. The soccer sim got its nose in front of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Grand Theft Auto V, both of which occupied the second and third spots...
News UK Sales Charts: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Prevails on Black Friday Week
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare won the battle of Black Friday, knocking last week’s front runner Grand Theft Auto V from its perch atop the UK sales charts. Bundles make it almost impossible to get a proper read on this week’s best sellers list, but the top five is largely what you’d expect, with FIFA 15, Far
News UK Sales Charts: Grand Theft Auto V Is Britain's Best-Selling Game Ever
Crime and party time
Chart-Track has opted to lump sales of Grand Theft Auto V’s recently released next-gen version in with its last-gen predecessor, making it Britain’s best-selling game of all time. The previous record was held by Call of Duty: Black Ops, but seeing as Rockstar Games’ criminal opus is going to continue moving units for a...
News UK Sales Charts: Assassin's Creed Unity Sails Past Black Flag's Launch Sales
Advanced Warfare still on top
There’s a great game in Assassin’s Creed Unity, but it’s obfuscated by bad bugs and glitches. To be fair, Ubisoft is working hard to fix things, and that’s already resulted in one major PlayStation 4 patch. However, upper-management won’t be too worried about the backlash to the game, as it’s outsold the...
News October NPD: PS4 Starts to Get Comfortable at US Hardware Sales Summit
System scores tenth win in a row
This could be the last time that Sony gets to boast about the PlayStation 4’s performance in the monthly NPD sales report, so we should probably let the platform holder enjoy its moment. Pre-emptive comments from Microsoft prior to this showing suggest that the Xbox One may have November in the bag, but ten...
News UK Sales Charts: FIFA 15 Does Its Best Chelsea Impression at Top
No way, José
There’s still no unsettling FIFA 15, which has now secured six weeks at the top of the UK sales charts. Xbox One exclusive Sunset Overdrive seemingly gave it a run for its money in second, but it looks like we’re going to have to wait for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare to knock it off its perch. Thank heavens for that, because...
News UK Sales Charts: FIFA 15 Fights Off Minecraft for Fifth Week at Summit
There’s no stopping EA Sports’ soccer simulation it seems, as FIFA 15 is currently enjoying yet another week at the summit of the UK sales charts. The footie favourite has sat at the top of the league for five weeks now, and is unlikely to budge next week either. Of course, we’re sure that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare at the...
News UK Sales Charts: The Evil Within Can't Shoo FIFA 15 from Summit
How many scalps has EA Sports’ soccer sim claimed in the UK sales charts now? FIFA 15 has occupied Chart-Track’s top spot for several weeks since launch, and nothing appears capable of unsettling it – not even Shinji Mikami’s spooky survival horror, The Evil Within. Bethesda’s blockbuster instead finished in second this time, one...
News September NPD: Sony Silences Analysts as PS4 Sales Surge
Nine month winning streak rolls on
Michael Pachter appears to enjoy pushing gamers’ buttons, so we doubt that he’ll care too much about the egg on his face right now; either way, his prediction that the PlayStation 4’s winning streak would end in September was, well, wrong. Sony actually managed a ninth month atop the NPD sales charts, with
News UK Sales Charts: FIFA 15 Brushes Aside Alien: Isolation and DriveClub
FIFA 15 is a bit like a Jose Mourinho team at the minute: stubborn and utterly unbeatable. Despite the release of Alien: Isolation and DriveClub last week, neither could unsettle the soccer sim from its perch at the top of the UK sales charts. The former debuted in second, which may disappoint publisher SEGA a little seeing as it...
News UK Sales Charts: None Shall Pass FIFA 15, As Shadow of Mordor Enters in Second
Lord of the league
FIFA 15 fought off its first big competitor for the title this week, remaining at the summit of the UK sales charts – despite the excellent Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor deploying on Friday. The Lord of the Rings spin-off entered in second, netting the biggest ever British launch for a game based on the fantasy franchise. The...
News UK Sales Charts: FIFA 15 Kicks Destiny Off the Top
Got some balls
That didn’t last long, did it? To be fair, a quick glance at the release calendar would have told you that Destiny wouldn’t be dominating the UK sales charts forever – especially with FIFA 15 looming on the horizon. And, unsurprisingly, it’s the soccer simulation that’s knocked Bungie’s first-person shooter off the top,...
News UK Sales Charts: Destiny Still Sitting Among the Stars
Not so weary Traveller
Some less than stellar reviews haven’t prevented Destiny from maintaining its place atop the UK sales charts, with the intergalactic PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 adventure holding strong – despite numbers dropping by 78 per cent since its record breaking debut. It continued to perform impressively on the PS4 in...
News UK Sales Charts: Destiny Rocket Jumps into Podium Position
Strong showing from Activision's new super series
It would have been a bigger surprise this week if Destiny had failed to land in the top spot, but, as expected, it’s rocketed straight to the summit. The next big game from Bungie sold best on the PlayStation 4, and also smashed new intellectual property records in the process. As a result,...

Sorry Aiden, Destiny's coming
Watch Dogs may be the fastest selling new franchise of all time – but it’s about to have that record snatched away.

"We are survivors, Tess"
There’s so little change in this week’s UK sales chart that we considered skipping it entirely and digging straight into the good stuff. That wouldn’t be especially professional, though, would it? As such, here’s your weekly British best sellers report: The Last of Us Remastered is still on top. The exclusive title...
