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 - Bloodborne

Oh From Software, how much pain and torture you have bestowed upon me and still, here I am, with my hat in hand asking “can I have some more sir?”. I guess the fool me once saying doesn't really work on the From Software games as Demon Souls beat me, Dark Souls 1 and 2 beat me, and here I am...

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...

Review - Evolve

Review - Evolve

Evolve has seemed to be a dark horse from the time it was revealed and up until release. People have been claiming there didn't seem to be enough content, or the game might feel repetitive and not enough meat on the bones for it to become a hit, but we still wanted to dive in and see for...

Review - Dying Light

From the developers of Dead Island comes another zombie slayer but this time the focus doesn't seem to be on the combat which Dead Island highly emphasised, but more on the parkour aspect, as you are going to run from a lot of zombies this time around, and when night comes, good night and good...

If you haven't played a game of Risk before then this is your chance. Risk is one of the more intense and competitive games I have ever played in my life but previously only on a tabletop, that is until now when I got my hands on the PS4 version and it has everything the boardgames has without...

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.
