Open-world role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has scored the biggest UK release of the year so far, smashing Battlefield Hardline's week one sell through by an impressive 53 per cent.
Launch week sales were up 608 per cent on its predecessor The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, which came out in 2011, although only for PC and then later on Xbox 360.
63 per cent of physical copies were sold on PlayStation 4, 32 per cent on Xbox One and five per cent on PC. Of course, the lion's share of PC sales will be digital (Chart-Track's data does not include download sales).
Farming Simulator 15 cropped up this week for consoles, going against the grain with a new online co-op mode for Xbox One and PS4. We had more agriculture puns but the official multiplayer tagline asks "do you play well with udders", so frankly we're done here.
I can't really put into words the joy I felt while watching my colleagues discuss the merits of horse farming versus grain harvesting, so you'll just have to catch this week's Eurogamer Show to experience that particular delight for yourself.
Behold! The first video of the console version of Farming Simulator 15. Let it flash pasteurise.
Farming simulator Farming Simulator 15 launches on PloughStation 4, X-ox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 on 19th May with all mod cons. Expect a furrow Digital Foundry analysis.
No Wii Moo version? Oh dairy me!
Farming Simulator 15 comes out on PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on 19th of Maize, 2015.
Don't soil yourself.
Farming Simulator 15 enjoys just under one million players on PC and Mac. The console ports should be a barnstorming conversion as publisher Focus Home Interactive seeks pastures moo.
And God said, "Let there be official Farming Simulator peripherals," and there were.
Don't pretend you didn't like that pun. It's not a racing game we're talking about here - I couldn't use an obvious pun like Arnold Koenisgsegger, could I? But I could have used Christian Bale, or there's Tom Hanks, who was in that beloved childhood film Pig. Yvette Fielding? Is she still around?
