The Last Of Us Part II has sold incredibly well according to UK sales charts. This will be a huge sigh of relief for both Naughty Dog and Sony, as the game did have a rocky few weeks leading up to its launch.
The Last Of Us Part II Is The PS4’s Faster-Selling Game
We get this information from gamesindustry.biz. They have noted that The Last Of Us Part II is the fastest-selling game on Sony’s PlayStation 4 system. The game has narrowly edged out the previous record-holder, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, which was another Naughty Dog title.
It is also the highest-selling game in the UK for 2020, despite coming out just a few days ago. It seems to have beaten out Animal Crossing: New Horizons by a factor of 40%. How has The Last Of Us Part II fared compared to its prequel, though?
The Last Of Us Part II Is Handily Outselling The Original
Extremely well there, too. The Last Of Us Part II’s sales numbers are up a whopping 76% from The Last Of Us on PlayStation 3. Keep in mind that the PlayStation 3 was significantly less popular than the PlayStation 4, but this is still a huge margin.
The Last Of Us Part II Had A Lot To Live Up To
The Last Of Us is one of the most celebrated video games ever made. In fact, The Last Of Us Remastered, a graphically enhanced version of the original, is one of the PlayStation 4’s best-reviewed games on Metacritic.
So, the concept of a potential “The Last Of Us 2” was already contentious. Many people believed that the game didn’t need a sequel. However, The Last Of Us Part II’s sales data tells a different story. Keep in mind, these are just numbers for physical sales. Once we account for the digital downloads, this game’s success might be even bigger than what it appears to be.
