PlayStation 4 exclusive The Last of Us Part II takes the top spot in the UK video game chart.

Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II has, unsurprisingly, debuted at No.1 in the GfK UK video game chart. The game is the only new entry in the top forty, which tracks the sales of physical software. According to reports, it’s the fasted-selling PS4 game of the generation, and the biggest physical game launch this year.

Last week’s No.1, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, falls three places to No.4. However, it’s a good week for the Nintendo Switch overall with Ring Fit Adventure holding steady in second place, 51 Worldwide Games at No.8, and Pokémon Sword returning to the upper reaches of the chart at No.9.


Elsewhere, the remaster of The Last of Us, is at No.17. (If you don’t have time to replay the game before starting Part II, read our comprehensive recap right here.) There are also re-entries for Doom Eternal, and, following some widespread 3DS software discounts, WarioWare Gold and Disney Magical World 2.

EA’s Nintendo Switch excellent port of Burnout Paradise Remastered is nowhere to be found. No surprise considering its exorbitant price.

Here’s the full UK Top 10. Visit the Ukie website for the complete chart rundown.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
