The Last of Us: Remastered debuts at top of Ukie Games Chart

The Last of Us

‘The Last of Us: Remastered’ brings the critically acclaimed title to PS4 this week, debuting at the top of the All Formats Chart just like the PS3 original did over a year ago.  It becomes the 5th biggest launch of the year so far and the 4th biggest PS4 launch ever, sitting just behind ‘Infamous: Second Son’.  Last week’s No1 ‘Watch Dogs’ (+3%) has to settle for 2nd place and ‘FIFA 14’ (+12%) also drops one place, down to No3.  However, with the school holidays now in full swing, sales of all Top 10 titles (except GTA V) are up.  ‘The Lego Movie Videogame’ enjoys the biggest Top 10 sales jump this week, an increase of 27% pushing it up one place to No4.  Both Minecrafts are sitting pretty at No’s 5 and 6 with the Xbox 360 version (+11%) ahead of the PS3 version (+22%) by only 14 sales.  All Formats No1 four weeks ago, ‘Sniper Elite 3’ (+3%) drops from No4 to No7, while FPS big guns ‘Call of Duty: Ghosts’ (+21%) and ‘Battlefield 4’ (+24%) both climb one place to No’s 8 and 9 respectively with sales up by similar margins.  ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ (-5%) rounds off the Top 10, down 3 places to No10.
