    With a lack of new releases hitting shelves, Call of Duty once again retains the top spot in the UK All Formats chart.
    Activision’s shooter manages with a mere 24 per cent drop in sales week-on-week. This is the sixth time in a row that Black Ops III has been at the No.1, the longest time in pole position since FIFA 15 in 2014. That game also managed six weeks on top.
    2016’s edition of EA’s football title slips to third place as sales dip 45 per cent, while Grand Theft Auto V shoots two places up to No.2 with a mere 16 per cent sales dip week-on-week. This is the highest rank Rockstar’s title has reached since Week 34 2015.
    Battlefront falls one place to No.4 with a 45 per cent sales decline, ahead of Rainbow Six: Siege which rises up one position to fifth place.
    In sixth place is Square Enix’s Just Cause 3, which rose two positions over the course of the week. Meanwhile, WWE 2K16 sales drop 30 per cent but remains sold at No.7.
    Below is the All Formats Top Ten for the week ending January 16th:
    1. Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Activision Blizzard
    2. Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar
    3. FIFA 16, EA
    4. Star Wars Battlefront, EA
    5. Rainbow Six: Siege, Ubisoft
    6. Just Cause 3, Square Enix

    Maybe you've been holding out on getting an Xbox One all this time because your subconscious has been waiting for this bundle. Whatever your reason is, this package is worth checking out if you've been looking to get both a 1TB version of the console and Tom Clancy's The Division when it finally drops. You can pre-order right now from the Microsoft Store, Amazon, Best Buy or GameStop if you're in the US or Canada for US$400.





    A lot of retailers plan to release the pack on the same day the survival shooter game arrives (March 8th), but some might ship it out as early as March 1st. Best Buy's product page, for instance, lists 03/01/2016 as the release date. Ditto for some other locations around the world where the bundle will also be sold. If you're in the US, though, you'll get a really nice bonus for pre-ordering: the bundle will give you early access to the long-awaited title's closed beta, which is slated to launch on January 28th.

    Activision’s Call of Duty starts 2016 as it ended 2015: in the No.1 spot in the All Formats Top 40.
    The title holds pole position, despite a 68 per cent drop in sales, ahead of soccer blockbuster FIFA 16.
    EA’s football game climbed two places this week and reaches No.2. It’s just ahead of fellow EA title Star Wars Battlefront which is pushed one place to third position.
    Grand Theft Auto V is STILL in the charts and rises one place over the course of the week, finishing at No.4 as Fallout 4 drops to fifth place with a 75 per cent drop in sales.
    Meanwhile, new Tom Clancy shooter Rainbow Six: Siege holds fast at No.6 in spite of a 58 per cent drop in sales. Last week’s ninth place WWE 2K16 manages to rise up two places to No.7, too.
    In tenth place is EA’s Battlefield 4. That title debuted in November 2013, and returns to the Top Ten due to a price promotion on the game which saw Argos selling it for £1.99 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
    Below is the software Top Ten for the week ending January 9th:
    1. Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Activision Blizzard
    2. FIFA 16, EA
    3. Star Wars Battlefront, EA
    4. Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar
    5. Fallout 4, Bethesda

    The exact number of Xbox Ones sold worldwide remains a mystery, but we now know that it is in excess of 18m units.
    GameSpot reports that a reporter on ZDnet heard from sources that new stat gathering for Windows 10 revealed that 18m Xbox One consoles are ‘active’.
    Microsoft later confirmed to ZDnet that ‘active’ refers to any machine that has been turned on and connected to the internet within the 28 prior days. Along with 18m Xbox Ones, the same period also saw 180m active Windows 10 PCs and 1m Windows 10 phones.
    How many Xbox One owners can realistically be expected to turn on their machines every month is another question, but it’s certainly reasonable to assume that the actual sales number is quite a bit higher than 18m.
    Microsoft hasn’t revealed any concrete sales data for its machine since announcing that it hadshipped nearly 10m consoles back in November 2014. It then said late last year that it would no longer report Xbox One numbers.
    Sony said last week that it has now sold 35.9m PS4s.

    Thanks to shadowprophet for this news

    it's been a long time,, I wanted to post this.. but saw fit to post it here in off topic..

    the ps4 has seemingly been hacked to run linux..

    https://www.yahoo.com/tech/hackers-p...193235093.html

    A video of the exploit in action can be seen below..

    And here is a link to the original source.. a group called FailOverflow..

    https://fail0verflow.com/blog/2015/c...ner-notes.html

    I believe a version of the exploit can be downloaded there. but it still needs a few tweeks before it will be really useful.

    Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony all saw record revenue for their current-gen console hardware last month, NPD has reported.
    Hardware sales for November 2015 reached $1.12bn. That's up 11 per cent compared to the same period last year, driven by a 14 per cent increase in console hardware revenue – which offset a significant drop in handheld sales.
    "Growth was driven by console hardware, up 14 percent, which offset a 31 percent decline in portable hardware,” NPD's Liam Callahan stated. "November 2015 marked the best month ever in total unit sales for 8th generation consoles (Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U), surpassing sales of December 2014 (now second-highest), and November 2014 (now third-highest)."
    "Within console hardware sales there were dramatic differences by console generation as 8th generation console sales rose by 22 percent in dollars, 7th generation sales dropped by 76 percent in dollars, which is sharper than the year-to-date decline of 57 percent. In November 2015, 8th generation sales had 93 percent share of overall hardware sales, a 9 percentage point increase from last November."
    PS4 and Xbox One sales continue to outpace their predecessors as well.
    “After 25 months, the combined sales for the PS4 and the XBO are 47 percent higher than the combined sales for 25 months of PS3 and Xbox 360 hardware sales,” Callahand added.
    The same couldn't be said about retail software sales, which fell 7 per cent during the month despite the release of Star Wars Battlefront and a new Call of Duty offering.
    "New physical software sales decreased by 7 percent as portable software sales drop 66 percent with console software sales down a modest 1 percent,” Callahan said. “Within consoles, 8th generation software sales increased by 37 percent, and largely offset the decrease in spending for 7th generation consoles, which decreased by 60 percent.”
    Overall, US sales hit $2.47bn during the stretch – a 2 per cent increase versus November 2014.
