I have been an Trials fan since the first game released, since then I have laughed, cried, broken controllers and rejoiced, so who better than me to get my grabby paws on the new DLC from Red Lynx. I have played games since the late 80s but it is the first time I jumped onto the back of a...

Review - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher is the most immerse open-world game ever created, that’s right, I said it. Even with its flaws this is the game to beat for game of the year on many gamers lists this year. I am even going to go as far as to say that this will change open-world games forever, if your game doesn’t...

Review - Broken Age (PS4)

I grew up with adventure games, it is still my favourite genre of all time, but lately the genre has slowly faded out, much being because of the attention span of gamers nowadays, and the thought of them getting stuck on a puzzle more than a few minutes seems absurd. But Double Fine is trying...

Review - Shovel Knight (PS4)

There is a thin line between inspiration and plagiarism and Shovel Knight balances this perfectly. By paying homage instead of ripping off classic NES games it simply creates nostalgic magic for older gamers while introducing old school classic gameplay to the newer generation. This is one of...

Review - Life is Strange Episode 2

We return to the strange but wonderful world of Life is Strange. Stuff was right about to hit the fan as we left the previous episode and even though the last episode ended on a cliffhanger the second episode starts off slow by introducing and adding more back-story to the main story. If the...

The PS4 edition becomes the biggest Diablo III console launch, pipping the original Xbox 360 Edition by around 500 units

Created on Tuesday, 26 August 2014

Diablo-3-Ultimate-Evil

‘Diablo III Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition’ brings Activision Blizzard’s long-running Action RPG to PS4 and Xbox One and in the process hands the franchise its first ever All Formats No1.

 

 Originally launched on PC in May 2012, Diablo III debuted at No2 and was propelled back up to No3 in September 2013 thanks to its appearance on Xbox 360 and PS3.

 Launch week sales of the Ultimate Evil Edition (which also includes the original game) were split: 47% on PS4, 32% on Xbox One, 13% on Xbox 360 and 8% on PS3.  

The PS4 edition becomes the biggest Diablo III console launch, pipping the original Xbox 360 edition by around 500 units.

 ‘The Last of Us: Remastered’ (-24%) drops to No2 after a three week run at the top, ahead of a rejuvenated ‘Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare’ (+200%) which sprouts up from No15 to No3 thanks to new PS4 and PS3 versions.

 Sales of ‘Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’ are up 5%, leaving it down one place at No4, while sales of the PS3 edition drop 5% making it slip two places to No7.

 ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ (+7%) rises one place to No5, no doubt feeling the continued beneficial effects of the recently launched fourth and final DLC pack ‘Nemesis’.  Previously at either No1 or No2, this week ‘Watch Dogs’ (-11%) drops out of the Top 5, down to No6.

 ‘The Lego Movie Videogame’ (-11%) and ‘GTA V’ (+3%) are still proving popular, at No’s 8 and 9 respectively.  J-RPG ‘Tales of Xillia 2’ from Bandai Namco manages a Top 10 debut at No10, meaning ‘FIFA 14’ (-24%) falls out of the Top 10 for the first time, slipping 5 places from No7 to No12.
