UK Sales Charts: Minecraft Chucks a Brick at The Last of Us

Stairway to seven smashed
After an impressive six weeks at the top of the charts, The Last of Us has finally been stopped in its tracks by, er, Minecraft. The boxed version of Mojang’s indie hit did its best Clicker impression, and shuffled straight to the summit of the best-sellers list. New release Pikmin 3 was forced to settle for second, while Naughty Dog’s survival horror opus fell into third.
Elsewhere, familiar favourites FIFA 13, Far Cry 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Tomb Raider rounded out the chart. We can’t wait for the Christmas rush to bring a shake-up, because we feel like we’ve been writing the same game names in these posts for about six months now. Who doesn’t own FIFA 13 at this point?
