UK Top 40 Sales Charts: The Last of Us Remastered Finally Dethrones Watch_Dogs

by on August 4, 2014 4:42 AM 27

For the first time in several weeks, Watch_Dogs has been dethroned in the UK, with The Last of Us Remastered standing at the top of the local sales charts for the week ending on August 2nd.

Below you can read a detailed breakdown of the week’s performance for the top ranking games, courtesy of the British sales tracking firm Chart Track.

The Last of Us: Remastered’ brings the critically acclaimed title to PS4 this week.

It debuts at the top of the All Formats Chart just like the PS3 original did over a year ago. It also 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

And here are the top 40 all formats sales chart, released by the UKIE, and the individual formats charts, courtesy of NeoGAF user Bruno MB. Interestingl, the Xbox 360 version of Watch_Dogs sold more than the PS4 version this week, while the Xbox One version is now almost out of the charts.

    Thanks Naughty Dog and thanks to all the people who recommended this game to me.

  • Vrasku

  • Cassive

    Sony are on a serious kill streak this generation. Can’t lie, I pre ordered this bitch too

    • Negi Springfield

      Man , SONY is on full-force right now , PS2 Days all over again.

      • Kingdom17

        Fork over my JRPGs, then we can talk.

  • Anders

    Many xbox 360 to PlayStation 4 converts come from the UK so it’s understandable that they want to try The Last of Us.

  • rllintrllin
  • TristanPR77

    Wow, TLOU does not stop surprising me. Can’t help to think about the many articles saying that TLOU remastered shouldn’t exist and that it was a mistake to make it.

    Congratulations to ND.

  • Craig Sloan

    Well deserved indeed, Personally even though it’s a remaster it’s so far both the best game on PS4 and the best game of the year so far. Between first time buyers and re buyers like myself it’s no surprise it’s sitting at number one. The only game coming out this year that will compete imo is Dragon Age Inquisition.

    • Jhora Zakaryan

      What about Destiny? With all the crazy hype and enormous PR Destiny will easily outperform sales of both TLOU and DAI in my opinion.

      • Craig Sloan

        I was speaking from a personal opinion based on quality and not taking about sales numbers. I have destiny pre ordered and I enjoyed the Beta but it’s nowhere near TLOU quality IMO. DAI in my personal opinion is more to that standard. I don’t see Destiny being my GOTY even though it’s been pre ordered for a couple of months now and as I said I enjoyed what I played of it so far. It will be there for most people come GOTY awards time though.

        For me it’s TLOU and probably ( hopefully ) DAI.

  • Jeff Maxwell

    I find it really funny that see so many people complaining about it on here yet remained top of the charts since release and takes a game that’s bin elevated to god status by the ponies to dethrone it. Cant be that bad then!!!

    • They Call Me Senpai

      If you’re talking about Titanfall, you’re wrong on many levels; Titanfall was knocked from the number 1 spot as soon as Watch Dogs launched and has yet to regain its former spot.

      It’s not likely that you were talking about Watch Dogs because most people here have been praising it

      Troll a little harder.

      • Jeff Maxwell

        You having a laugh people ive seen saying its not that good it’s boring doesn’t live up to hype etc etc maybe your only remembering the good comments. Wouldn’t talk about titanfall anyway, even though people do enjoy I couldn’t get into it. Good as a casual shooter though, lets face it it’s not hard at the moment for anything to hit top spot because the games are so few and in between there’s time for sales to drop off. September October and November that’s when you’ll see what people want and waiting for because not many people can afford them all

    • Creed

      Who are these “ponies” you speak of?

  • MnFnGamer

    Good naughty! Well until the next call of duty, and assasins creed comes out oh wait… Batman Game. Know do uncharted 1-3 please

  • Big Boss

    Why is this article linked to the Xbox One/360, PC, and WiiU? I don’t really think this is an article they would want to read……
