The Last of Us Part 1 had 305% sales growth in the UK
After the adaptation of The Last of Us HBO enjoying impressive success upon its release, as evidenced by its audience numbers, the post-apocalyptic franchise of Naughty Dog he’s clearly enjoying a second wind. This success is also being reflected in the increase in game sales, with The Last of Us Part 1 and The Last of Us Remastered, both having seen significant increases in UK physical sales in the past week. Unsurprisingly, that has also been reflected in regional digital sales.
As reported by GamesIndustry’s Christopher Dring on Twitter, The Last of Us Part 1 for PS5 enjoyed strong digital sales growth in the UK last week, up 305% week-on-week, climbing to number 11 on the charts. In the same way, The Last of Us Remastered for PS4 also saw its digital sales increase by 337%, sitting at number 16 on the charts.
With The Last of Us Part 1 Also scheduled to release for PC on March 3, we’ll likely see the game continue to rack up steady sales in the weeks and months ahead. Sony recently also made a two-hour trial for the remake available to PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers, hoping to entice users to buy the full game.
Meanwhile, success from The Last of Us on TV has led HBO to officially greenlight a second season for the show.
Now the digital data is in for the UK, we can see that The Last of Us Part 1 sales actually grew 305% week-on-week and is at No.11 in the charts. Last of Us Remastered was up 337%, and is at No.16
