Review - Dark Souls III

After about 2-3 minutes into Dark Souls III I met my first boss, not random, it was meant for us to cross paths at this moment, and at that exact moment I knew I had made a huge mistake trying to do this review for Dark Souls III in time. However, I survived, not only that battle but all the...

Review - Hitman Episode 1: Paris

As a long time Hitman fan it is always scary for me personally whenever a new Hitman game releases, not because I am afraid it won't live up to my expectations but simply the fear of not having enough time to play it all the time, stupid sleep and family. You can imagine my ears perked up when...

Review - Day of the Tentacle Remastered

I played this original game when it first released, back then I was 12 years old, I am now … older than that but it still evokes the same amazing experience as it did back then. And that is a true testament to how incredible good this game was, and is. I go back to my childhood and re-play the...

Review - Deadpool (PS4)

Better late than never. When Deadpool first arrived on the previous consoles we wrote “There is nothing unique here, but it is still one of the most fun and entertaining experiences I have had in a long time. It is good to play a game that is just that, a game, a fun and entertaining experience...

Review - Dying Light: The Following

How bold is it to remove one of the main draws of a product and replace it with something completely new? Dying Light The Following does just that, the parkour aspect of the game that was hailed when it first released as a game changer has now been pushed aside and instead you get a vehicle, a...

There are way too many racing games which gives the control complete control from the beginning, there are no real skill involved you just push the gas and drift through the different turns until you finally hit the finish line, these are mostly arcade racing games and there is fun to be had...

Review - Gravity Rush Remastered

If I had a Playstation Vita I think Gravity Rush would be one of my favourite games on that system, sadly though I had one for a incredible short period of time until I realized it was just collecting dust and got rid of it before I encountered Gravity Rush. Luckily for me and many other who...

Review - Just Cause 3

Just Cause 3 has finally been unleashed upon us, and judging by the trailers and previews leading up to the games released it seemed like third time the charm, but sadly, Just Cause 3 is riddled with the same problems the previous games encountered, glitches, game breaking bugs and repetitive...

Review - Fallout 4

It is that time of the year again, it is Fallout season. As a long time Fallout fan you can imagine my excitement when our PS4 review code for Fallout 4 finally came. Fallout 4 seems familiar the second you start playing it if you have previously played a Fallout game (Fallout 3 most...

Review - Call of Duty Black Ops III

Third times the charm is a saying that rarely holds any meaning, the same can be said for Call of Duty Black Ops 3 seeing as the previous two on the series has seen incredible success and it was a no-brainer that we would get a third in the series. The question is however, can Treyarch have...

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.
