Fallout 4 has the third biggest UK launch of the year

Also the biggest ever Fallout launch
Nov 16
// Joe Parlock
You might not have noticed, but Fallout 4 released last week. I know, I know, it was kind of snuck out and didn’t get much fanfare, so I totally won’t blame you if you somehow managed to miss it. However, you migh...

Jun 17
// Joe Parlock
Well, this is a surprise. The Elder Scrolls Online is currently at the top of UK retail charts, managing to sell over 100,000 copies in its first week. I really like TESO, but it is a game that released over a year ago to mid...

Jun 03
// Alasdair Duncan
Whilst many didn't expect it to set the charts alight, it can't be of any comfort to Insomniac Games to know that Fuse entered the UK videogame charts at number 37. Our own Jim Sterling said in his review the game was "lazy" ...

Ni no Kuni is #1 in the UK, sold out in many shops

Three cheers for color and whimsy!
Feb 04
// Tony Ponce
I guess a lot of grown-up "mature" gamers, who complained that Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was too "kiddy," were blowing smoke out their asses and bought the Level-5 RPG anyway. According to GfK Chart-Track's UK Top ...

UK Charts: Brink smashes into number one

May 16
// Jim Sterling
Brink has made it to number one in the UK Charts. You'd have hoped so, since it was developed in Bromley. I used to live in Bromley, opposite a kebab shop, in an apartment frequently visited by a guy who'd drink a pint of his...

Dead Space 2 is enjoying its second consecutive week at the top of the UK Chart, as the sequel sells considerably better than its original, which is awesome. It seems the market has been yet to reward Visceral Games with a sm...

Jan 31
// Jim Sterling
Visceral's highly excellent Dead Space 2 has made a splash in the United Kingdom, debuting at number one. It shunts LittleBigPlanet 2 down to the second place, which is no bad place to be. In fact, PS3 exclusives don't typica...

It appears that LittleBigPlanet 2 is enjoying a very nice launch, debuting this week at number one. The original LittleBigPlanet did not manage to achieve this, if memory serves, so that's a nice little victory for a nice lit...

UK Charts: Gran Turismo 5 crashes into first

Nov 29
// Jim Sterling
PS3 exclusives often find it very difficult to take the top slot, so there's reason to celebrate in the Sony camp today. Long-awaited racer Gran Turismo 5 has easily seized first place in the UK Chart. Looks like that century of development paid off.  There isn't really much else of note this week, so just read below for the usual chart listings.

UK Charts: Black Ops on top ... as if it wouldn't be

Nov 22

You all know the drill by now. A new Call of Duty is released, and promptly sits on top of the UK chart for six months as I struggle each week to come up with a new headline. Considering how crap this week's headline is, it's...
