Metacritic's score may be in ruins, but as many predicted, the outcry against The Last of Us: Part II did little to prevent the game from becoming an instant hit for Sony. In the UK, the sequel to Naughty Dog shot to the top of the software charts after its launch last Friday.
What is impressive is that The Last of Us: Part II is now the UK's fastest-selling PS4 game released by Sony, leaving the previous record holder Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End behind. This also does not apply to digital sales Games industry According to speculation, the start of Part II is probably even more impressive than it seems. Compared to the release of The Last of Us on PS3 in 2013, the sequel has grown a whopping 76 percent.
All of this means that The Last of Us: Part II had the biggest launch of all boxing games in Britain this year. 40 percent more copies were sold than Nintendo Switch Juggernaut Animal crossing: new horizonsthat held the record up to that point.
Elsewhere in the UK, the sales chart is more or less what you'd expect, with a mix of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto 5, and various Nintendo Switch games topping the charts.
