Destiny Takes UK Top Spot in Launch Week

Predictable, really.

After dominating everyone's conversation for about three weeks, Activision and Bungie's new title Destiny was the bestselling game of the week in the UK, pushing last weeks' number one The Sims 4 down to second position. The game enjoyed the biggest new IP launch EVER in the UK, with Xbox and PlayStation format sales split down...

August NPDs Show Madden Rules The Roost in the US

Unsurprising

August's NPD chart has been released, and it shows that Madden NFL 15 is the king of the castle in terms of sales in the US. If you didn't see that one coming, then, well...there's not much we can do to help you. As always, the most interesting thing about the top ten is the way in which console sales for each title are ranked and...

Xbox One Flops In Japan

Not a great start...

The sales numbers are in from the Xbox One's opening sales week in Japan, and the numbers are pretty dire. In fact, they're worse than anyone could realistically have imagined. Just to put some context in place, the original Xbox sold 123,000 units across three days back in 2002. The Xbox 360 sold 62,135 units over two days in...

Settling in

The Sims 4 has become the first PC-exclusive title to reach the top of the official UK All Formats Chart since Guild Wars 2 managed the feat back in August 2012.

News: NPD: Xbox One Closes US Sales Gap, But Not By Much

NPD: Xbox One Closes US Sales Gap, But Not By Much

Comparative sales up in quiet month

In what was a barren wasteland of a month for videogame retail in the US - barring the outstanding The Last of Us Remastered for PS4 - Xbox One sales were predictably down in July, but the gap between Microsoft's machine and Sony's was smaller than anticipated. In June, Sony shifted 269,000 units of PS4 hardware,...

Sniper Elite 3 shot down

Ubisoft's Watch Dogs has climbed to the peak of the official UK all formats chart this week, pushing last week's champion Sniper Elite 3 down to second place. It was a quiet week for the chart as we sit in the middle of the dull spot of the year, waiting for the next round of releases to begin in a few weeks. Then, of...
