The Last of Us Limping Towards Black Ops II Record in the UK

Posted by Sammy Barker

Sweet six

Assuming that The Last of Us can survive another week at the top of the UK sales charts, it will match a record held by Call of Duty: Black Ops II and FIFA 12. Both of the aforementioned titles managed to sit at the summit for a whopping six consecutive weeks. Naughty Dog’s critically acclaimed opus is now at five weeks, with only Dynasty Warriors 8 standing in its way. Can it manage another week? Tune in next Monday to find out.

Realistically, if the title does conquer Tecmo Koei’s historical action sequel, then there’s no real reason why Joel and Ellie’s adventure can’t maintain the top spot for some time. In terms of multiformat releases, the schedule doesn’t really pick up until the end of August with Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Saints Row IV. Regardless of what happens, it’s always nice to know that the British public has some taste – especially after years of keeping Just Dance at the top of the charts.

Maybe if people get worn out on guns and zombies theyll pick up Disney Infinity? It will make a lot of money if they count all the toys.

Quite amazing when you realise COD and FIFA are multi-platform. Have yet to crack open my copy of The Last of Us, but really looking forward to it now!
