Review - South Park: The Fracture But Whole

Everybody know the story of South Park by now and if you don't then you should really look it up as it is an amazing story of two people who took a holiday greeting video, with paper-cut stop motion video and made it into one of the most, if not the most, important cartoon experiences since the...

Review - Middle-Earth: Shadow of War

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor came out of nowhere and quickly claimed its rightfully place as many gamers and gaming websites' number one game back in 2014. It was also one of my personal favourites that year. It wasn't the story that made it so compelling but the “nemesis system” which they...

WWE is not what it once was, it used to be the number one TV show, it killed of rival its rival wrestling shows WCW and ECW and became the only place for wrestling for years. But times have changed, and the UFC has grabbed most of the hardcore wrestling fans and WWE is seeing its worst years as...

Review - Unbox: Newbie's Adventure

  As far as I can tell this is Prospect Games first release, and I always find it interesting to check out a fresh developer teams first game so I jumped on the opportunity to check out Unbox: Newbie's Adventure. The title in itself really didn't tell me anything but a few gameplay trailers...

Review - Agents of Mayhem

From the creators of Saints Row we get a new and action packed game. It is more of a crossover to be fair but putting the two up against each other you can clearly see these are two separate games. So how could this be bad? Well, the only problem is that with the success of Saints Row 3 and...

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Sneaks into to the Top of the Charts

Created on Monday, 07 September 2015

 MGSV-header 1

‘Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain’ lands Konami their first No1 of the year. It also marks the series’ return to the top of the All Formats chart for the first time since 2008

 

It’s a new week 1 high for the series beating the opening week sales of ‘Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty’ by just under 37%. It’s enough to put it at 3rd place in terms of first week sales in 2015 (behind Batman: Arkham Knight & The Witcher III: Wild Hunt).

PS4 takes a commanding 72% share over Xbox One which has 22%, while PS3 edges to a 3% share over Xbox 360 with just 2%.  Unable to threaten the No1 spot ahead of Metal Gear, Warner Bros’ post-apocalyptic open world ‘Mad Max’ still makes a solid start driving in at No2 in its debut week.

 After winning the battle of the format exclusives and claiming No1 last week ‘Gears of War: Ultimate Edition’ (-64%) makes way for the new guys dropping to No3. It remains ahead of Sony title ‘Until Dawn’ (-52%) down two places to No4, while ‘Disney Infinity 3.0’ (-35%) also slides two spots to No5.  While the rest of the Top 10 has a somewhat familiar look the Top 40 welcomes another pair of debutants this week.  

Koch Media bring ‘Broken Sword 5: The Serpent’s Curse’ to Xbox One and PS4 (The PC version was released in 2014) and the title makes it to No35 in its opening week.  With the tournament proper on the horizon Big Ben Interactive and Ubisoft bring ‘Rugby World Cup 2015’ to a host of formats (Xbox One, 360, PS4, PS3, Vita and PC) landing at No39.
