  • Awesome to see the Crash Banidcoot franchise topping the PS classics from 4 to 1!

    • You expect, people will now get the hint xD

      Just to put it out there it sad seeing these localisations/copyright barriers from publishers, EU PSN selections is a joke compared to US/JP. There is alot of classics that we are willing to buy or throw money at but it’s shame publishers/sony don’t go the extra mile to try and make these available.

      These is also the cross play / backwards compatible too. One of my friend frequently complaining about the ps+ offerings and also how he want to try PS2 / PSOne classics, mainly because of just moved to the PS4 so this will probably solve that problem. Although I understand the risk of killing say PS3 and there is also PSNow which not many people care about.

      TL:Dr publishers don’t want out money and are wasting good a revenue source, whilst shoving dlcs and season passes down our throats

  • Correct me if I’m wrong but WRC 4 is not new.

    Fred any info on when SCEE will find replacement for Jawad? I mean to ask whether you guys have already someone in mind?

  • Good to see rev 2 vita on 5th. And it was half a months there. Sony we need more games like this

  • Glad to see Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture get the top spot, it’s an amazing little game.

    Suikoden II not being in the top 10 where it should be permanently, it’s another amazing game.

  • Really happy that Resident Evil: Revelations 2 for PS Vita is well positioned in the chart.
    In spite of some problems, it is really a good product.
    By the way, I remember Gio Corsi saying on Twitter a couple of weeks ago that (Sony maybe?) is working on a new patch to improve the game. Is there any news related to how long it might take before we are able to get it?
    Thanks staff!

  • I try to follow some gaming charts weekly on the web . And I see PS4 console is still doing great compared to other systems , Europe is selling more games than USA on discs ( thats cool :) ) . And I like this chart too , but Can you show us numbers please . Its like watching football Germany vs England but not seeing goals … How many guys :)

  • Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture really deserves the top spot, a very good game :)

  • I’m still yet to get or recieve any confirmation I’m getting the 20% PS+ discount on Everybody’s gone to the Rapture refunded. For something it sounded like it’d be automatically refunded, support didn’t seem aware and have to have head office say if it’s a thing or not before I find out.

    Doing something like this through Apple, even before the refund stuff came in a a few months back would take a matter of a day or two to be informed, then 5 working days for the refund to be processed, all this over email. With Sony you’re told you need to ring at your own expense, get someone that is borderline flippant, have to wait several weeks (at this stage) to find out if you’re even getting one. It’s totally polar experiences.

  • Easy peasy Yu-Gi-Oh top 4 ahuhu :D

    The developers said it is meant to be less than £11.99. Bad enough I had to wait several weeks after my US friends got it and now I still can’t purchase it cos you put the wrong price on it. You’ve made a right mess of it’s EU launch there.
