UK Chart: The Sims 4 Seizes Chart

The Sims 4 sits on top of the chart as the first PC-only title to do so in over two years.

Promotions via the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 take Watch Dogs (+19%) to second, up from ninth.

The rest of the top five move down to accommodate, with varying degrees of performance. Metro Redux (-58%) takes a heavy hit yet takes third ahead of The Last of Us: Remastered (-30%) and Diablo III Reaper of Souls (-51%).

Call of Duty: Ghosts drops one place from fifth to get in ahead of Minecraft, on Xbox 360 at sixth and PlayStation 3 at ninth.

Plants vs Zombies falls four places to eighth. Grand Theft Auto V completes the top ten.

With promotions, Wolfenstein: The New Order (+10%) takes fourteenth. Danganrompa 2: Goodbye Despair lands at twenty-ninth on Vita, +12% and thirteen places above its predecessor. Warriors Orochi 3: Ultimate also arrives at thirty-fourth.

UK PlayStation 4 Sales Surpass One Million

Sony announced Monday that the PlayStation 4 has sold over one million units in the UK, 42 weeks after first going on sale.

The console is now the second fastest selling console in the UK, surpassed only by the Nintendo Wii, which reached the one million mark after just 38 weeks.

By comparison to other consoles the PS4 beat the PS3 to one millions sales by four weeks and the PS2 by eight weeks. Perhaps most pleasing for Sony is the fact it beat the Xbox 360 by 18 weeks, whilst the  Xbox One has yet to reach its first million.

Table Top Racing Vita Review

Back in the days of the PlayStation 2 there was a racing game that held a special place in a lot of gamers memories. It wasn’t however the Gran Turismo series but rather a game featuring miniature cars and their attempts to race around the human world, that game was Micro Machines. Table Top Racing from Playrise Digital attempts to reignite those fond memories for the PlayStation Vita.

Mario Kart 8 DLC Delivers, Fails On Price Parity

An untimely listing spotted on the Nintendo UK website Tuesday let slip details of planned downloadable content (DLC) for Wii U hit Mario Kart 8.

The webpage details how classic Nintendo character Link from The Legend of Zelda series will surprisingly be made available as a racer in one of two upcoming DLC packs. A range of new tracks, characters and karts were also revealed ahead of schedule, with plenty of callbacks to other well known Nintendo franchises such as Animal Crossing, Excitebike and F-Zero.

However, it wasn’t only the content that got spotted early — both the release schedule and pricing for the DLC was also erroneously on show.

UK Chart: Diablo III Reaper of Souls Reaches Summit

Diablo III reaches the top of the chart with the Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition, bringing the franchise to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The PlayStation 4 release takes the majority of sales with 47% over 32% on Xbox One, and has the most successful launch on consoles to date, beating the Xbox 360 version by around 500 copies.

The Last of Us (-24%) drops from the top after three weeks up top to slot in ahead of Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare (+200%), which has climbed to third from fifteenth with the release of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 versions.

A small increase in sales fails to keep the Xbox 360 Edition (+5%) of Minecraft from slipping to forth, where a small dip in sales commits the PlayStation 3 Edition (-5%) to seventh.

Call of Duty: Ghosts (+7%) falls one place to fifth, saved somewhat by the release of the final DLC package Nemesis.

Watch Dogs (-11%) plummets four places to sixth and The LEGO Movie Videogame (-11%) drops two to eighth.

Grand Theft Auto V (+3%) slips to ninth ahead of new release Tales of Xillia 2 at tenth.

Falling outside of the top ten for the first time, FIFA 14 (-24%) crashes at fifteenth.
