GI.biz has crunched the numbers on last weekâ€™s UK physical game sales, revealing The Last of Us: Part II had a record-breaking launch.
Not only is it the fastest-selling game of 2020, beating Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but itâ€™s also the fastest-selling PS4 game this generation. This means it had a stronger first week than God of War, Marvelâ€™s Spider-Man, Horizon Zero Dawn and even Uncharted 4.
Considering the PS4 is about to enter the end of its lifecycle, itâ€™s likely this record will remain unbroken. Next monthâ€™s Ghost of Tsushima would have to be something really special.
Nintendoâ€™s Ring Fit Adventure held onto #2 while FIFA 20 remained at #3
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe â€“ last weekâ€™s surprise chart-topper â€“ fell to #4, then at #5 itâ€™s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, up one position.
GTA V does the opposite and falls to #6, Minecraft re-enters at #7, while the recent mini-game suite 51 Worldwide Games climbs to #8.
At #10 itâ€™s a re-entry for PokÃ©mon Sword, clearly benefiting from last weekâ€™s new DLC. PokÃ©mon Shield sits at #22, meanwhile.
DOOM Eternal re-surfaces at #21 â€“ now that theyâ€™ve re-opened, retailer GAME are pushing the shooter with a new promotion.
A couple of 3DS games have shown up too, including WarioWare Gold at #29 and Disney Magical World 2 at #32. Both Amazon and Argos have been clearing out their 3DS stock over the past few months, with some games available for as little as Â£1.99.
