News Japanese Sales Charts: Mega Man X Drops Like a Rock on PS4, Nintendo Domination Resumes
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...
News UK Sales Charts: Crash Bandicoot Earns Sixth Consecutive Number One in Uneventful Week
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 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...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Mega Man X Dashes into Number 1 on PS4
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...
News UK Sales Charts: Crash Bandicoot Refuses to Roll Over for Fifth Week in a Row
The UK just loves Crash Bandicoot, huh? Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy smashed all expectations when it launched exclusively on PlayStation 4 last year, but thanks to its release on other platforms just over a month ago, it's returned to the top of the charts. This is the remade collection's fifth consecutive week at number one,...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Not a Single PlayStation Game in Top 10 as Sony Rut Continues
Nothing to see here
A complete lack of new software is taking its toll on PlayStation this summer in Japan. The latest software charts are dominated by Nintendo titles, with PlayStation being completely absent in the top 10. The only PlayStation 4 title worthy of mention in the top 20 is Detroit: Become Human, which is still slowly creeping towards...
News UK Sales Charts: Crash Bandicoot Remains Top Despite Amazon Prime Day Disruption
Spin to win
Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy continues to perform extremely well in the UK retail chart thanks to its multiplatform release last month. This is its fourth consecutive number one since then, despite some fierce competition. LEGO The Incredibles remains in second place, with only a 7% drop in sales week on week. But the bandicoot has...
News Japanese Sales Charts: New Nintendo Titles Dominate as PS4 Numbers Drag
PlayStation remains in a bit of a rut when it comes to the Japanese market, as the PS4 and PS4 Pro continue to hover around a combined 17,000 units. A distinct lack of big new releases is preventing Sony's consoles from pushing up, and all in all, it's been a very quiet summer for the company so far. Two new Nintendo titles have stormed...
News UK Sales Charts: Crash Bandicoot Fends Off New Releases to Remain Number One
The latest UK all formats chart is in, and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy runs away with another top result thanks to its multiplatform releases last month. It also bests a couple of new entries, with LEGO The Incredibles and the Switch exclusive Octopath Traveler having to settle for second and third respectively. God of War once again...
PlayStation Store Sales Charts FIFA 18 Dominates in Europe
Second in North America too
Last month saw social media rattling with excitement for the World Cup, so it's no surprise to see that FIFA 18 walked away as the most downloaded title on the European PlayStation Store in June. Over on the North American Store, it also performed very well indeed, securing second place. But what came in first over in...
News Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Numbers Continue to Endure Summer Drought
Well, there's not much happening in the latest Japanese sales charts -- unfortunately for us. Only one new release made it into the software top 20, and that was PlayStation 4 and Vita title Zanki Zero: Last Beginning. Across both platforms, it mustered around 25,000 copies and entered in fourth and seventh place, respectively...
News UK Sales Charts: Crash Bandicoot Fends Off Jurassic World Evolution for Number One Spot
Well, there it is
Jurassic World Evolution released at retail last week, but even the promise of your very own dinosaur empire wasn't quite enough to topple Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Activision's revitalised platformer is once again at the top of the pile, with the dino park management sim debuting in second place. Elsewhere, The Crew 2...
News Japanese Sales Charts: The Crew 2 Is the Only Meaningful New Release
And that's about it
Ramsey ain’t around to post the Japanese sales charts like usual, but it’s not like there’s anything of interest going on overseas. The Crew 2 was the biggest new release of the week, shifting over 17,000 units. A bunch of evergreen Nintendo titles helped prop the Switch up, while the PlayStation 4 could only muster 18,000...
News UK Sales Charts: Crash Bandicoot Pips The Crew 2 to Pole Position
That's put a spin on things
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has leapt up the chart from 22nd to secure another No.1, due to the game releasing on several new platforms. It means that Ubisoft's open world racer The Crew 2 had to settle for second place in its debut week. This means that everything else has shifted down a few...
News UK Sales Charts: God of War Takes the Bronze in Uneventful Week for PlayStation
"Do not be sorry. Be better"
It seems everyone has been too busy watching the World Cup to go out and buy some new PS4 games. The latest UK sales chart is out, and for PlayStation at least, it's wholly unremarkable. God of War drops into third place, maintaining steady sales, and FIFA 18 is understandably holding firm in second. One of the week's...
News May 2018 NPD: PS4 on Top Yet Again, Detroit Starts Strong
Another record breaking month for PlayStation
With the PlayStation 4 nearing its fifth anniversary, we had expected the Nintendo Switch to take the lead on Sony’s system in the United States hardware charts – but it’s just not happening yet. The Japanese giant’s popular platform enjoyed a fourth consecutive month in the throne in May, with...
News Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Steady in Uneventful Week
There’s not much going on in Japan at the moment, as evidenced by Record of Grancrest War being the best-selling new release of the week. The title moved just 11,871 units. It means that evergreen seller Splatoon 2 was able to secure the top spot with just 15k units added to its already substantial tally. Elsewhere, the PlayStation 4...
News UK Sales Charts: God of War Returns to the Top Amid Days of Play Promotion
The highest peak in all the realms
It's a day late, but this return to the No.1 spot on the UK charts is a great Father's Day gift for the Ghost of Sparta. God of War is back on top after a few weeks lower down the top 10, largely due to Sony's Days of Play sale which saw discounts on Santa Monica Studio's latest and greatest. The sale also bumped...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Fate/Extella Link Slashes Its Way to Number 1 on PS4
Console sales also up
Fate/Extella Link, a sequel to the rather good Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, which launched around a year ago here in the West, has hacked and slashed its way to the top of the Japanese software charts with ease. The Dynasty Warriors-esque title did better than Koei Tecmo's own Dynasty Warriors 9, shifting around 117,000...
News UK Sales Charts: Vampyr Sinks Its Teeth into the No.1 Spot
Like a bat out of Hell
The latest UK sales charts are out, and it's a pleasantly surprising result for Focus Home Interactive. Vampyr, from DONTNOD Entertainment, has debuted in first place in the all-formats chart, which is the publisher's first ever. It steals away another No.1 for FIFA 18, which has to settle for second this week. Just behind...
PlayStation Store Sales Charts Detroit Does Exceptionally Well
God of War still rocking as well
Detroit: Become Human’s one of those rare remaining games that you’d expect most people to purchase physically, but it’s done outstandingly well on the PlayStation Store sales charts, suggesting we really are entering a new era for digital downloads. The title was beaten by only God of War in North America,...
News Japanese Sales Charts: BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle Barely Leaves a Mark as Dark Souls Stays Top
We hope that you like low sales numbers, because that's what you're getting with the latest Japanese charts. Still sitting at the top of the software pile is Dark Souls Remastered on PlayStation 4, which somehow managed to retain its position with a mere 19,900 copies. Newcomer BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle barely put up a fight...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Dark Souls, Detroit, Persona Dancing Can't Improve PS4 Numbers
Stuck in a rut
For the first time in a while, we've got a slew of new releases to write about when it comes to the latest Japanese sales charts. Regular readers may have noticed that we actually missed the charts last week (you can blame Overlord Barker for that), so we're catching up now. Okay, where to start? Well, the software charts were...
News UK Sales Charts: FIFA 18 Kicks Detroit: Become Human Off the Top Spot
World Cup fever?
Thanks to aggressive in-store promotions, along with the recent World Cup content update, FIFA 18 has landed back atop the charts, putting an early end to Detroit: Become Human's run as the bestseller. Quantic Dream's "most successful game so far" has to settle for second place, while God of War moves back up to fourth. Meanwhile,...
News UK Sales Charts: Detroit: Become Human Breaks God of War's No.1 Streak
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 Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Numbers Remain Low, God of War Breaks 100,000 Copies
PlayStation 4 role-playing game remake The Caligula Effect: Overdose somehow managed to top the latest Japanese software charts by moving a meagre 20,000 copies, and that perhaps tells you all that you need to know. Indeed, it's been another very slow week in the Land of the Rising Sun, with the aforementioned RPG being the only new...
News April 2018 NPD: PS4 Breaks Records in Staggering Month
God of War, MLB The Show 18 on fire
God of War helped propel the PlayStation 4 to a sensational April 2018 in the United States, where the system set a new software sales record for the month since data tracking started all the way back in 1995. The console – which was unsurprisingly the top-selling system of the month – also registered the...
News UK Sales Charts: God of War's Reign Continues for Fifth Consecutive Week
God of War is doing very well for itself in the UK market, as it claims the No.1 spot for another week. A week ago, it bested The Last of Us Remastered's record of three weeks in pole position, and if it can stay put for one more, it'll match the original PS3 version of The Last of Us with a run of six weeks in first place. It's been...
News Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Numbers Fall Following Seriously Slow Week
God of War closes in on 100k
There's really not much to write about when it comes to the latest Japanese sales charts. A total lack of new releases made for an incredibly slow week, with hardware sales dropping across the board (not counting the Xbox One X shifting an astonishing 15 units more than it did last time out). PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro...
News UK Sales Charts: God of War Sets New PS4 First-Party Record with Fourth Successive No. 1
Beats The Last of Us Remastered's record
God of War has set a new PlayStation 4 first-party record by registering a fourth successive week at the summit of the UK sales charts. Sony Santa Monica’s smash hit overcame a 30 per cent dip in physical sales compared to the previous week, which was enough for it to break The Last of Us: Remastered’s...
PlayStation Store Sales Charts God of War Rules Supreme
Word up, boy
It perhaps won’t come as a surprise in the wake of its staggering launch sales that God of War was the best-selling game on the PlayStation Store for the month of April. Kratos’ latest topped in both Europe and North America, beating out Far Cry 5 in both territories. Fellow exclusive MLB The Show 18 finished third in North America,...
News Japanese Sales Charts: PlayStation Stays Quiet Over Golden Week
God of War still in top 10
Golden Week was a quiet affair for Sony and PlayStation. Japanese holiday deals didn't seem to have any real impact, with the PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro simply holding steady at around 35,000 units combined. In previous years we've seen some boosted hardware sales during Golden Week, but not this time. The software charts...
News UK Sales Charts: God of War Fights Off Funky Kong for Third No. 1
God of War has enjoyed a third week at the summit of the UK sales charts, after fending off Nintendo Switch re-release Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Sales of Kratos’ latest dropped 56 per cent week-over-week, but it still moved more than enough physical units to maintain its position atop the British best sellers list...
News Japanese Sales Charts: God of War Leaps Labo as Japan Goes Mad for Chibi Baseball on PS4
PS4 numbers spike
Long running cartoony baseball series Power Pro (as it's commonly known outside of Japan) has always been popular in its native country, and the latest instalment has batted its way straight to the top of the Japanese software charts. Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu launched on both PlayStation 4 and Vita, shifting a combined...
News UK Sales Charts: God of War Fights Off the Competition for Another Week
No.1 once more
God of War set a record as the fastest selling game in the series, debuting at the top of the weekly UK boxed chart. In its second week on sale, it's stayed put, fending off Far Cry 5 in second and Nintendo Labo, which debuts in third with its Variety Pack. According to GamesIndustry.biz, God of War saw a sales dip of ju
News Japanese Sales Charts: God of War Debuts in Second Place on PS4
PS4 numbers still low
God of War enjoyed a semi-decent opening in Japan, moving roughly 46,000 copies and landing in second place. We weren't expecting it to do crazy numbers, but we perhaps thought that it would get a little closer to 100,000. It was beaten out by the newly released Nintendo Labo Variety Kit, which isn't a huge surprise. Things...
News March 2018 NPD: PS4 Tops Hardware Charts as MLB Registers Record
Sony maintained its position atop the United States hardware charts with another impressive NPD result, outselling all other consoles in the month of March 2018. The console was buoyed by the release of MLB The Show 18, which set a franchise record during its launch month. However, Far Cry 5 unsurprisingly swept aside all competition,...
News UK Sales Charts: God of War Sets New Series Record
And so does Yakuza
The new God of War game is the series’ fastest selling entry in the UK – and that’s despite data tracking only a couple of days’ worth of physical sales. In terms of purely boxed units, it outsold God of War III by 35 per cent, but it’s worth remembering that digital sales have increased dramatically in recent years, so...
News Japanese Sales Charts: PS4 Falls Further as Japan Suffers Seriously Slow Week
Monster Hunter finally at 2 million
Every now and again, the Japanese sales charts enter a slump and there's barely anything to talk about. Unfortunately, that can be said of the latest figures, which make for some yawn-inducing reading. On the software side of things, a Compile Heart title named Death end re;Quest entered the top five on...
News UK Sales Charts: Far Cry 5 Starts a Cult at Summit
Little else going on
Another desperately slow week for the British games industry concludes with Far Cry 5 at the top of the UK sales charts. This is its third consecutive spell at the summit, which would be nearing a Ubisoft record if God of War wasn’t waiting in the wings to steal its place. Elsewhere, the only other thing of note is Gran...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Far Cry 5 Breaks 100k, PS4 Drops Off
Quiet on the Eastern front
There's not much happening in the latest Japanese sales charts. A total lack of new software means that we're left analysing what's already there, and we suppose the biggest news is that Far Cry 5 has broken through 100,000 copies on PlayStation 4. That's not a bad result for Ubisoft. Elsewhere, Monster Hunter: World is...
PlayStation Store Sales Charts Far Cry 5 Finds the Holy Ground on PS4
Top seller in NA and EU
Far Cry 5 is the fastest selling game in the series, and it's been doing well in the physical charts, but what about its performance on digital storefronts? Well, Sony has detailed March's sales charts, and Ubisoft's open world shooter sits atop both the North American and European charts. Also performing well in both regi
News UK Sales Charts: Far Cry 5 Is No.1 for Second Week Running
A quiet week
The latest weekly UK chart is in, and, well, not a whole lot has changed. Ubisoft's Far Cry 5, the fastest selling title in the franchise, is still top of the pile. In fact, the top three hasn't changed; FIFA 18 and Sea of Thieves remain in second and third place respectively. A lack of notable new releases means the chart is largely...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Far Cry 5 Outsells Ni no Kuni II, Valkyria Chronicles 4 on PS4
Times are changing
The latest Japanese sales charts make for some surprisingly interesting reading. Numerous PlayStation titles have entered the top ten, with the latest Super Robot Wars game taking the number one spot. It shifted around 89,300 copies on PlayStation 4. The Vita version entered in third. Impressively, Far Cry 5 followed close behind...
News UK Sales Charts: Far Cry 5 Is No.1, Biggest UK Launch Week in Franchise's History
Far Cry 5 is Ubisoft's latest blockbuster release, and it's doing pretty well for itself so far. It debuts in the top position of the weekly chart, and has enjoyed the biggest launch in Far Cry's history -- in the UK, anyway. We're yet to see if this kind of success holds true elsewhere, but we imagine we'll see a similar story in North...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Ni no Kuni II and Valkyria Chronicles 4 Fail to Boost PS4
Neither did great
Despite the release of two relatively big PlayStation 4 titles, Sony's console refused to budge from its current position in the Japanese hardware charts. The PS4 is still stuck around that 25,000 units mark when taking both the standard model and PS4 Pro into account. It's pretty much business as usual, then, but it's a bit...
News UK Sales Charts: New Releases A Way Out and Ni no Kuni II Debut in the Top Three
Shiver me timbers
New releases have dominated the latest weekly chart, with Sea of Thieves, A Way Out, Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, and Assassin's Creed Rogue Remastered debuting in the top four spaces. As you might have guessed, this makes for a very different top 10 to the previous chart, which was more or less made up of the usual suspects...
News Japanese Sales Charts: Attack on Titan 2 Storms Top 5, Monster Hunter Finally Falls
Monster Hunter: World has finally fallen out of the top five in Japan, slipping down the software charts and landing in sixth. It was pushed out by a spate of new releases, including Attack on Titan 2, which performed best on PlayStation 4. The sequel moved 28,480 copies on Sony's system. On the hardware side of things, the PS4's...
News February 2018 NPD: PS4 Wrestles Hardware Crown Off Nintendo Switch
Monster Hunter: World still killing it
The PlayStation 4 was the best-selling console in the United States for the first time since November in February 2018, with Sony temporarily wrestling the crown from Nintendo in what is sure to become a constant back-and-forth. We’re only two months into 2018, but the PS4 is now the best-selling platform of...
News UK Sales Charts: Burnout Paradise Remastered Zooms to First Place
Last week's UK sales are in, and it seems that, sometimes, you can't beat the classics. Burnout Paradise topped the UK chart back when it released on PS3 in 2008, and that initial success has repeated itself, with Burnout Paradise Remastered in pole position. According to GamesIndustry.biz, the PS4 version of the game accounted for 78% of...
