News UK Sales Charts: PS4 Port The Last of Us Remastered Clings to Summit
Not even a clicker could remove The Last of Us Remastered from the UK sales charts summit this week, as Naughty Dog’s next-gen port has maintained its place at the top of the best sellers list.

All of that foraging paid off
Naughty Dog’s hard work porting re-release The Last of Us Remastered to the PlayStation 4 wasn’t for nothing, as the next-gen escapade has attained the fifth biggest launch of the year in the UK – an impressive feat considering that 90 per cent of the nation’s living it up in Alicante right now. It also secured...

With the release calendar looking emptier than a hipster’s apartment in central London, Watch Dogs has managed yet another week at the summit of the UK sales charts.

News June NPD: PS4 Brushes Aside Xbox One Price Drop for Sixth Month at Summit
After supposedly getting battered in the May NPD sales report, all eyes have been on Microsoft to see whether the newly Kinect-less Xbox One can rebound. Unfortunately for the Redmond-based firm, despite doubling its sales, it hasn’t bounced back to the degree that it may have hoped, as
News UK Sales Charts: Watch Dogs Reconnects with the Top Spot
Hanging on the telephone
After a few weeks with shoddy signal, Ubisoft’s sandbox smash Watch Dogs has re-established a connection with the summit of the UK sales charts.

News UK Sales Charts: PS4 Testicle Remover Sniper Elite III Tops
505 Games’ morbidly graphic long-range shooter Sniper Elite III has enjoyed a second week at the top of the UK sales charts, putting a bullet in fellow next-gen rival Watch Dogs.

News UK Sales Charts: Sniper Elite III Is Your Number One with a Bullet
EA Sports UFC is going down, down in an earlier round, as Rebellion’s oddly satisfying Sniper Elite III has cocked its rifle and pulled the trigger on the UK charts.

News May NPD: PS4 Outplays the Competition as MLB 14 The Show Hits a Home Run
Next-gen console enjoys fifth consecutive month on top

News UK Sales Charts: Watch Dogs Takes the World Cup for a Walk
Now that E3 2014 is little more than a fading memory, it’s time to get back to business with the weekly UK sales charts report.

No surprise, Sherlock
Square Enix’s spooky Salem investigation Murdered: Soul Suspect couldn’t quite catch its killer quick enough to topple Watch Dogs and Mario Kart 8 in the UK sales charts, with the brand new property entering in a still respectable third position. Ubisoft’s aforementioned hack happy escapade held onto the top spot despite...

Time to 'Stein
Bad news, Nazis – B.J. Blazkowicz is coming for you. The seasoned superstar has helped Wolfenstein: The New Order Reich the summit of the UK sales charts this week, with the MachineGames developed release securing the second biggest launch of the year thus far. Bethesda may want to enjoy that, because we suspect that Watch Dogs will...

It's under 9,000

News UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Tops, Minecraft PS3 Digs Deep
The release of Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition at retail outlets last week means that Mojang’s mega creation is likely to occupy two slots in the top ten moving forwards, as Sony’s version tussles with Microsoft’s for sales superiority. The blockbusters finished third and fourth respectively this time around, with PlayStation 4...

While firm figures aren’t available at the time of typing, research firm NPD reports that the Japanese...
News UK Sales Charts: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Swings a Little Lower
A lack of new releases means that this was another uneventful week for the UK sales charts, as semi-Xbox One exclusive Titanfall reclaimed its place at the summit.

News UK Sales Charts: The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Swings to the Summit
Save this city
Not even our astute spider sense could predict that Activision’s movie tie-in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 would swing straight to the top of the UK sales charts, but that’s exactly what it’s done. Aspiring journalist Peter Parker’s alter-ego wrapped a web right around former frontrunner Titanfall, proving that you don’t need to...
News UK Sales Charts: FIFA World Cup Slips Behind Titanfall in Extra Time
Like England of old
First-person shooter Titanfall may not be the big hardware mover that Microsoft wanted, but it’s sure stretching its robotic legs in the UK sales charts right now.

News UK Sales Charts: FIFA World Cup Falls to Respawn's FPS
Enforcing stereotypes about the British and the beautiful game, there are two soccer simulations in the top five of this week’s UK sales charts. 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil sprinted out of the blocks into second, though it couldn’t topple long-running frontrunner Titanfall. Meanwhile, FIFA 14 landed a Champion’s League spot in...
News March NPD: PS4 Overcomes Titanfall to Top Hardware Charts Again
inFAMOUS in at second
Titanfall may have made the Xbox One the faraway frontrunner in the United States sales battle last month, but the PlayStation 4 extended its lead on Microsoft’s home turf with another unexpected victory in the all-important territory.

News UK Sales Charts: Dark Souls II Blocked from the Top by You Know What
Drop a titan on it
Xbox One and PC exclusive Titanfall unsurprisingly assaulted the summit of the UK sales charts this week, securing the biggest launch of the year so far. We can’t help but wonder if publisher EA’s pondering how big that debut could have been if it had actually opted to release the title on the PlayStation 4 as well...
News February NPD: PS4 Claims Narrow Victory Over Xbox One
Ongoing stock shortages couldn’t prevent the PlayStation 4 from claiming a second successive victory over the Xbox One in the February NPD report.

There's an unsurprising result in this week’s UK sales charts, as animated role-playing tie-in South Park: The Stick of Truth has waltzed straight to the summit of the best-sellers list. The hilarious outing farted in the face of Square Enix’s mediocre Thief reboot, which slipped down into second. Elsewhere, The LEGO Movie Videogame...

Yakuza Ishin performs better on PS3
With popular publication Famitsu already releasing its own PlayStation 4 sales figures for Japan, this week’s Media Create chart isn’t as interesting as it perhaps could be. Nevertheless, the research firm reports that the next-gen system sold 309,154 units during its first two days on the market – a figure...
News UK Sales Charts: The LEGO Movie Videogame Constructs a Path to the Summit
The LEGO Movie Videogame capitalised on half-term this week, with flustered parents no doubt stumping up for the cinematic spin-off in order to keep their kids quiet during the seven day break from school.

News January NPD: PS4 Reclaims Lead in Console War by Almost Doubling Sales of Xbox One
Return of the king

News UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Continues Cup Run with Convincing Win
Draws Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition next
We’re running out of ways to make these UK sales charts posts interesting.

Anything would be more interesting than a top three that hasn’t changed in...

Top of the league

Handheld keeping its head above water
The holidays have come to a conclusion in Japan, but the PlayStation Vita has held on fairly well.

News Japanese Sales Charts: PS Vita Stretches Its Legs with Strong Sales
There have been times since its release where the PlayStation Vita has hinted that there’s a mainstream seller just itching to step out of the Nintendo 3DS’ shadow, and this is one of those moments again.

News Japanese Sales Charts: PS Vita TV's Audience Shrinks Again
Gran Turismo 6 takes pole position
Sony may be considering ways in which it can broadcast PS Vita TV overseas, but we reckon those plans may be shelved soon if the diminutive device doesn’t pick up the pace in its home territory. After a miserable first month on the market, the micro-console has now slumped to just 3,772 sales in Japan according...
News UK Sales Charts: Gran Turismo 6 Falls Short of the Pace on PS3
Lapped by its predecessor
There was plenty of pent-up desire for Gran Turismo 5 when it eventually parked on store shelves all the way back in 2010, so it’s not especially surprising that its successor Gran Turismo 6 has debuted with sales less than its older sibling. However, we weren’t expecting such a sizeable drop. Chart-Track reports that...

Japan Studio’s enjoyable (but not outstanding) PlayStation 4 launch title Knack landed a heavy blow on the critically acclaimed Super Mario 3D World this week, finishing above the Wii U exclusive in the UK sales charts. Mark Cerny’s throwback platformer punched its way into 13th in the multiformat best-sellers list, while the bruised...

No storm surrounding Lightning Returns
Thunder only happens when it’s raining, and it was dry as a bone in Japan last week.

PS Vita TV was among those disappointments, moving just 7,686 units in its...
News UK Sales Charts: FIFA 14 Sprints to the Summit
Back of the net
Unsurprisingly, this week’s UK sales chart is dominated by a certain non-Sony next generation console.

That includes FIFA 14, which shot straight to the top of the league after seeing a 328...

You may be forgiven for thinking that the PlayStation 4 was the only new gaming hardware launch last week – but you’d be wrong.
