The Last of Us: Remastered Fifth Biggest 2014 UK Launch


This week’s UK game charts are not a repeat of the last few weeks, because of one notable release. You might’ve guessed it, but The Last of Us Remastered blasted sales once more to come in on the top spot.

This finally puts down Watch Dogs, which held the throne several weeks. It looks like the Playstation 4 version of last year’s multi-award winning title is going to be just as popular.

Watch Dogs still comes in a strong second in this week’s charts, followed by an always popular FIFA 14. Minecraft, oddly, has both the fifth and the sixth position to its name, for the Xbox 360 and PS3 version respectively.

Some interesting names to see linger in the charts are Tomodachi Life, which keeps the 3DS brand on the twelth spot and Mario Kart 8 resting on spot 16, representing the Wii U.

According to Eurogamer, The Last of Us: Remastered performed so well in its opening week that it’s currently the fifth strongest launch of 2014. It shares the honors with a lot of other PS4 games, which must be good news for Sony.

Watch Dogs, Titanfall, Wolfenstein: The New Order and Infamous: Second Son are those that managed to beat out the remake. Still, for a game that basically just came out last year, it’s not a bad show.

The Last of Us: Remastered comes with some added goodies. For instance, it has Photo Mode, also available in the new inFamous. Its launch also came with an update for SHAREfactory.

Canada is even getting a special PS4 bundle for The Last of Us: Remastered.
