Resident evil for ps4 deserves The number 1 spot!! Amazing remake and the best survivor horror of all time :)

Btw fred still no update on The Lego Batman 3 ps4 season pass??

1.1

Sorry to keep you waiting. The team is still addressing a technical issue with the PS4 pack. As soon as it’s taken care of we will let you know.

Hi Fred , Season Pass available!! Thanks for all the feedback when it was gone , its really good that us costumers have someone that actually answers back when there is a problem :)

It’s unfortunate that Freedom Wars doesn’t sell better and has left the top 20. It’s one of the best AAA games on the Vita.

2.1

I wouldn’t say it’s an AAA title… anyways… most people buy FW as a retail version since it’s available.
I wouldn’t say low digital sales mean low sales overall =)

Driveclub… doing the business. Best driving game in half a decade.

They’re never going to put that damn PS Plus edition out, the only thing it can do is kill the sales.

Stop buying the damn game!

You are INSANE!

All this comment does is make me realise how old my favourite driving games are… I was about to put forward PGR4/Burnout Paradise as contenders, but they’re nowhere near the last half decade!

I heard Sony was asking fans about their favourite PlayStation classics, just look at the Classics top 10. People want Crash, Spyro and Final Fantasy.

4.1

whenever a new crash comes out is Activision’s choice not Sony’s so yeah.

Dang, Minecraft still dominates the PS3 (EU only) & PSVita charts? I wonder if any game on knock it off the list soon?

Yayyyyyy Resi at number 1. Now get ShinjI Mikami to do a REmake of Resident Evil 2 Capcom. I will be waiting. :)

6.1

He didn’t even make re2 if you want a game by him get evil within, but an re2 remake would be good but next I’m looking forward to revelations 2.

Resident Evil HD is AMAZING :P A true Classic. Hopefully RE:Zero could come to the PS4(+ Code Veronica to(to the PS4), not played that yet) ;)

doesnt everyone on the planet already have a copy of minecraft on every device – how does this never stop seling???

8.1

I don’t have it lol but I HATE minecraft.

8.2

Yeah, it’s really weird… I want to like minecraft but I just can’t! It’s just too boring :(

It’s mindboggling to me that it’s doing so god damn well :D

8.3

New people get consoles, it makes sense Minecraft still sells.

cant believe anyone would pay 54.99 for dying light although it might b due to the retail copy being held back for a month. if this has sold well expect this to be future trend with big games ( blaming publishers not sony b4 anyone mentions the obvious)

9.1

While it would be stupid to blame Sony for the retail game being delayed, that £55 price tag is totally their fault. If SCEE had followed the rest of Sony with regards to game pricing we would still be paying the same we did last gen just as the Americans and Japanese are, but no, apparently Europe and Europe alone must shoulder the increased cost of game development.

Shame Fred bottled that pricing FAQ that he himself suggested last year, it would have been really interesting to hear why SCEE, and only SCEE, chose to increase game prices by 45%

@TrueMurton

I have only one little problem with your point. You say that SCEE, and only SCEE, chose to increase game prices by 45%. I’ve not seen such a hike in prices within the EU, but I can get where it comes from: comparison with US prices.
No, my problem is this: if only SCEE chose this increase, how come the games cost the same over at Microsoft? Does SCEE choose the prices at chich toseell games on the Xbox? And for that matter, while we’re talking about Dying light, I’ve done my research and learned that even though the game is the same price on PS4 and Xbox 1, the season pass is cheaper on PS4. Not sure who to blame for that.

The publishers, surely. Like empty_hooks said. I dont’ believe for a second that SCEE fixes prices. Except the one from product they themselves publish, of course.

Why are people paying £55 for Dying Light (or any digital edition of a retail game)? The pricing is a complete joke…They should be £40-£45 tops.

£55 for the game and £16 for the season pass. It’s kinda tragically funny.
I bet they’d sell tenfold digital games if they had them at £40. £55 is absurd and obviously more expensive than any other source of buying the game.

You can even get it for £30 online retail in the UK at the moment (preorder)

Fred, where can i find all the ps classic games in the store? or just a list of wich are in the store.

prediction for February, suidoken I and II Will be numbers one and two PSone games in every region except AU because suidoken is not available on our store. Please fix this.

I once made a working sandwich in Minecraft – 9/10.

Both Senran Kagura got into TOP 20!
Good job, fellow hentais =D

With Binding of Isaac Rebirth appearing on charts like these, are the updates for it going to appear for the EU reigon soon? It’s not actually completeable on the current version 1.01
