Not one but two The Last of Us titles cracked the UK sales charts this week, as The Last of Us Remastered rebounded on the back of its PlayStation 4 successor’s record-breaking success. Joel and Ellie’s inaugural adventure saw an 82 per cent rise in week-on-week sales in order to secure 9th place, while the sequel held on to first position.
The Last of Us: Part II’s sales did decrease 80 per cent week-on-week, although this is common for releases with enormous debuts; Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End suffered a similar decline of 78 per cent in its second week. It’s worth stressing that all of this data accounts for physical sales only; we don’t have access to digital sales, but we do know that The Last of Us: Part II is Sony’s fastest-selling game ever globally.
Elsewhere, remastered PlayStation 2 platformer SpongeBob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated debuted in third position in the British charts this week, while simulation racer Assetto Corsa Competizione entered in 12th place.
