    2. Wii U News

    Nintendo has not been shy in downplaying virtual reality’s social credentials – but perhaps this is exactly the reason why its new NX console WILL be a VR machine.
    That’s the conclusion drawn by financial analyst Digi-Capital, which reckons that either virtual reality or augmented reality could be the next ‘blue ocean’ open market that Nintendo can claim as its own.
    Nintendo’s American boss Reggie Fils-Aime said of VR in June that: "What we believe is that, in order for this technology to move forward, you need to make it fun and you need to make it social. I haven't walked the floor, so I can't say in terms of what's on the floor today, but at least based on what I've seen to date, it's not fun, and it's not social. It's just tech."
    Shigeru Miyamoto echoed the sentiment later that same month: "The current types of virtual reality aren't really a good fit for Nintendo's philosophy of trying to create entertainment that people can play together in the living room. We're constantly looking at different technology and experimenting with different elements of it, but we're not feeling virtual reality is currently in a place where it's ready to be released – as a product that fits with our philosophy of fitting in the living room."
    Digi-Capital acknowledges both of these statements, while also acknowledging the late Satoru Iwata’s claims that the NX will be offered “through a Nintendo-like solution”.
    However, what would a non-VR machine leave for Nintendo, it argues? Android has been ruled out(rightly, it says – just look at Ouya’s failure) and the flop that was the Wii U rules out the idea of “another low end traditional console with a controller/screen twist”. Plus, why would Nintendo want to compete with the powerhouses that are PS4 and Xbox One?
    The same argument applies to VR, of course, with major players such as Facebook, Steam and Sony already preparing to fight for bragging rights in that sector.
    Where Digi-Capital differs from other onlookers, however, is in its interpretation of Nintendo’s previous comments about VR. It reckons that rather than dismissing VR entirely, it was instead criticising VR’s current implementation.
    It’s conclusion? The NX could be centred about social virtual reality of augmented reality games.
    It speculates that Nintendo’s solution could involve a low cost dedicated games console with a spec equal to or lower than PS4 and Xbox One that has been optimised for VR/AR. This would be accompanied by a low cast headset, possibly following the template laid out by the likes of Samsung’s Gear VR – which, of course, would tie into Nintendo’s smartphone aspirations.
    It also believes this would be accompanied by an accessible controller designed to do for VR what the WiiRemote did for console gaming
    “This looks a bit like the original Wii strategy applied to the AR/VR market in the context of smartphones, and could enable Nintendo to leverage its IP to again ‘disrupt an entire industry, and in a good way’,” it added.
    “Incorporating smartphone HMD holders could split processing between a central console and multiple smartphones, enabling social gameplay by lowering total system costs to the user. This might be achieved with a low cost console for co-ordination amongst players, position tracking, controller interactions etc, with additional AR/VR processing handled by CPUs/GPUs in smartphones in HMD holders and/or dedicated HMDs.
    “This approach could also allow iOS/Android game developers to leverage existing skills and IP with a dedicated SDK (i.e. lower game development costs and earlier commercial viability). High quality positional tracking integrated with HMDs/controllers could further enable Immersive VR like the Vive and Oculus, but at a much lower price point. Lastly, the DeNA partnership could be leveraged to incorporate the now dominant free-to-play (or “free-to-start” as Iwata described it) business model.”

    Rory McIlroy has done the double, staying at the top of the charts for a second week – making it the very first golf game to do so in the UK.
    Rory McIlory PGA Tour – the first title in the franchise without the name of former box star Tiger Woods – retained its number one spot despite sales more than halving (down 56 per cent).
    That’s partly thanks to a complete absence of new releases in the Top 40 last week, leading the existing players to move around.
    LEGO Jurassic World climbs two places to second place, dropping eight per cent, while fellow Warner Bros release Batman Arkham Knight continues to hang in third, sales down almost a third (28 per cent) week-on-week.
    Meanwhile, F1 2015 dropped back to number four as sales more than halve (down 55 per cent). The racing title is closely followed by chart staple Grand Theft Auto V, which has seen sales rise consistently for the last three weeks – it was up eight per cent last week.
    Last week’s second place title God of War III: Remastered fell out of the Top Ten, down six spots to sit at number 15 as sales sell 37 per cent.
    Although there were no completely new entries in the Top 40, Trials Fusion: The Awesome Max Edition managed to break into the Top 40 after debuting outside of the rankings last week, climbing to number 37 on the back of a 70 per cent increase in sales.
    Here is the UK software retail chart for the week ending July 25th, according to GfK Chart-Track and UKIE:

    1. Rory McIlory PGA Tour
    2. LEGO Jurassic World
    3. Batman Arkham Knight
    4. F1 2015
    5. Grand Theft Auto V
    6. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
    7. Minecraft: Xbox Edition
    8. Minecraft: PlayStation Edition
    9. The Elder Scrolls Online
    10. FIFA 15

    Japanese PlayStation 4 sales shot up this week as Batman: Arkham Knight launched in the country.
    That’s according to Famitsu market data that shows that sales of Sony’s latest hardware rose 73 per cent week-on-week.
    Batman: Arkham Knight debuted in second place, shifting 48,330 units in its first week on shelves. This is likely due to the fact that Sony had a marketing deal in place for Warner's most recent Batman title. And, of course, Xbox One sales in the region haven't exactly been stellar.
    But it wasn’t the best-selling game of the week – that title goes to the latest entries in the continually popular Yo-Kai Watch series, Akaneko-dan/Shiroinu-tai, which sold 224,268 units between them.
    Sales of the 3DS phenomena dipped 67 per cent week-on-week, down from its impressive Week One sales of 688,386 units.
    New 3DS XL sales also dipped this week, declining seven per cent, as the hardware falls to second place.
    Wii U sales rose this week on the back of Yoshi’s Woolly World hitting stores. That title debuted in third place, shifting 33,821 units, while Wii U hardware sales rose 11 per cent.
    Below is the software chart for the period between July 13th and July 19th:
    1. Yo-Kai Watch Busters: Akaneko-dan/Shiroinu-tai (Level 5) 3DS – 224,268
    2. Batman: Arkham Knight (Warner Bros) PS4 - 48,330 New
    3. Yoshi's Woolly World (Nintendo) Wii U– 33,821 New
    4. Dai Ace Attorney: Naruhodo Ryunosuke no Boken (Capcom) 3DS – 23,326
    5. Splatoon (Nintendo) Wii U – 23,080
    6. Fire Emblem Fates: White Kingdom/Black Kingdom (Nintendo) 3DS – 22,158
    7. Rhythm Heaven: The Best+ (Nintendo) 3DS – 20,465
    8. Taiko Drum Master: V Version (Bandai Namco) Vita – 12,511
    9. Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition (Sony) Vita – 9,263
    10. Mario Kart 8 (Nintendo) Wii U - 8,127

    And here are the hardware charts:
    1. PS4, 22,380
    2. New Nintendo 3DS LL, 19,939
    3. Wii U, 12,204
    4. PS Vita, 12174
    5. New Nintendo 3DS, 4,187
    6. PS3, 2,513
    7. Nintendo 3DS, 2,335
    8. Nintendo 3DS LL, 7,94
    9. PS VitaTV, 427
    10. Xbox One, 183

    GAME is hoping that that the special edition Metal Gear Solid 5 PS4 won’t cost you a (bionic) arm and a leg to pick up this September.
    Inspired by the next instalment in Hideo Kojima’s iconic stealth franchise, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the console is outfitted with a swish black and red design, complemented by a gold band and the logo of the in-game Diamond Dogs unit. The colours are said to be reminiscent of the tech-powered limb of hero Venom Snake.
    Inside sits a 500GB hard drive, rather than the 1TB storage found in Sony’s revised machine, but like the original PS4, players can always pop out the hard drive and replace it with something bigger.
    The DualShock 4 controller likewise has an updated visual design, clad in metallic grey and again featuring the Diamond Dogs sign.
    A Day One edition of The Phantom Pain is also included.
    The pack will set you back £364.99, with a £20 deposit required to guarantee one when it’s released on September 1st alongside The Phantom Pain.
    If you’re hoping to buy in bulk and use the resulting computing power to control a walking tank equipped with nuclear missiles, tough luck – sales are restricted to one per customer.

    After seven years of bogies, Rory McIlroy has helped 2015’s instalment in the PGA Tour series straight to the UK retail chart top spot.
    Rory McIlroy PGA Tour is a big shake-up for the golfing franchise – it’s both the first PGA Tour to drop a year from its title and the first entry without the name of iconic golfer Tiger Woods in 18 years.
    Not only this – McIlroy’s digital debut is only the second PGA title to launch on a Thursday, following Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14, which released in March 2013.
    Fortunately, it’s also the first PGA Tour to claim a Number One position in the UK software charts since 2008’s Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09, with the new title achieving a similar level of sales as its predecessor.
    This is probably thanks to its unique position as the only boxed golf title on PS4 and Xbox One at this point in time. (There are a number of digital ball-into-hole simulators.)
    Further down the rankings, F1 2015 slips from pole position to trail PGA Tour as the racing title’s sales drop by three-fifths (57 per cent).
    Batman Arkham Knight sits one space below, down from second to third as sales drop by a third (36 per cent).
    In terms of climbers, Activision’s Destiny jumped four spaces to sixth with sales almost doubling (up 90 per cent) thanks to multiple Amazon Prime Day promotions.
    The only other new entry in the Top 40 is God of War III Remastered, which debuts at number nine, over five years after its original PS3 version.
    Meanwhile, monster-smashing new release Godzilla failed to make it into in the combined software charts at all.
    Here is the Top Ten for the week ending July 18th, courtesy of UKIE and GfK Chart-Track:

    1. Rory McIlroy PGA Tour
    2. F1 2015
    3. Batman Arkham Knight
    4. LEGO Jurassic World
    5. Grand Theft Auto V
    6. Destiny
    7. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
    8. The Elder Scrolls Online
    9. God of War III: Remastered
    10. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    Batman isn’t just the world’s greatest detective and an all-around crime-fighting hero – he’s also a savvy marketing tool.
    The Dark Knight’s latest outing, Batman Arkham Knight, helped propel the US games market in June.
    Warner Bros’ title topped the software rankings for the month, according to market tracker The NPD Group (viaVenturebeat), leading a June that was 21 per cent up in terms of software revenues compared to 2014 – the sector made $345.5 million last month.
    Of course, it should be considered that last June was rather devoid of big triple-A releases, partially accounting for the growth this year.
    Thanks to a marketing effort on PS4, which included a console branded with Batman's iconic cape and cowl and bundled with the game, Sony’s machine once again outsold the Xbox One, claiming the crown for best-selling hardware in June.
    Despite this, hardware was up across the board, growing eight per cent over the last 12 months to hit $313.1 million last month.
    All in all, boxed software and hardware was up a combined 18 per cent on 2014.
    Meanwhile, SuperData Research (also via Venturebeat) adds its estimation that June generated $1.02 billion in digital game sales – an 18 per cent bump from last year. (NPD, much like the UK’s own GfK Chart-Track, only counts physical sales.)
    Mobile alone grew by 20 per cent to reach $367 million, However, PC and console didn't suffer in the face of this expansion, growing itself by almost a third (30 per cent) to hit $314 million.
    Interestingly, compared to the boxed success of new June-release games Arkham Knight, The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited and LEGO Jurassic World, the digital rankings were topped by two games released before June – last year’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Grand Theft Auto V.
    2013 release Call of Duty: Ghosts also made an appearance, slotting in at number six above relative newcomers Mortal Kombat X, Battlefield Hardline and Madden NFL 15.
    Here are the Top Ten best-selling boxed games for June, according to The NPD Group:

    1. Batman Arkham Knight
    2. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited
    3. LEGO Jurassic World
    4. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
    5. Splatoon
    6. Minecraft
    7. Grand Theft Auto V
    8. Mortal Kombat X
    9. NBA 2K15
    10. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

    And here are the Top Ten best-selling digital titles for June, according to SuperData:

    1. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
    2. Grand Theft Auto V
    3. The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel unlimited

    5. Destiny
