The Last of Us Limping Towards Black Ops II Record in the UK

Push Square: "Assuming that The Last of Us can survive another week at the top of the UK sales charts, it will match a record held by Call of Duty: Black Ops II and FIFA 12. Both of the aforementioned titles managed to sit at the summit for a whopping six consecutive weeks. Naughty Dog’s critically acclaimed opus is now at five weeks, with only Dynasty Warriors 8 standing in its way. Can it manage another week? Tune in next Monday to find out." (PS3, The Last Of Us)

If any game deserves to beat a COD record (in the uk at least) it's this.
ArchangelMike  +   434d ago
I definitely agree. But I hope gamers and the gaming media don't get bogged down in sales numbers. It only serves to mar the greatness of games, if they are judged in sales numbers.

Yes I hope TLoU keeps selling well into the PS4 launch, but even if it doesn't beat game X or Y sales record, let that not be a barrier for anybody to go out a pick up the game. It is an excellent experience.

I think with it also being a financial success it'll point out to more publishers that everything doesn't have to be a COD clone.

@camel- True, TLOU proves that it pays to be unique. If only Insomniac had stuck to their guns with Fuse *sighs*
camel_toad  +   434d ago
It sure does. Keep it up UK.

GO ND! I'm yet to finish it but the experience so far is amazing! why not break some record while they are at it, eh? c'mon UK!

Good. This deserves sales way more than CoD does...

Good to see an actual quality game managing some success in the UK.

Seems most of the people here only know about Fifa & COD

"""Seems most of the people here only know about Fifa & COD"""

sadly in my home Egypt it's the same too

but good thing it doing that good and it's new ip ...not just another sequel
it really show that there is still hope in gaming after all

EDIT:@ArchangelMike

thank you my friend
we are doing good ....the best thing is that we now don't have to deal with Mori and his lame group any more...i'm moslim my self and i hate what they have done with Egypt and good thing is that most of the ppl in Egypt make a stand about it and the military done the best thing for us because thanks to Morsi and his brotherhood Egypt with going no where but down

Hey Ezz2013, how's things down in Egypt? I hear there's unrest after the military outed Morsi. Keep yourself safe out there, and keep on gaming :)
nix  +   434d ago
nice to hear, Ezz.

take care.

but now i wonder where is America's Trahir revolution? even after the news outbreak of Prism and NSA not much people seem bothered. oh wait.. the revolution is being fought online.

and it's only exclusive
congratulations to sony
and naughty dog
masa2009  +   434d ago
But I think game sales are split by platform so if anything it helps them to be exlusive.

Also, releasing in June is much easier than in October or February.
Omran  +   434d ago
so you say if the last of us release in october
it will not sell well like now in june ?!

tell me why ?
masa2009  +   434d ago
No I'm saying it would not get to spend as much time on top of the charts because competition would be tougher.
TheFallenAngel  +   434d ago
I still don't know why call of duty sells more than quality games like this and other critically acclaimed games.
nix  +   434d ago
am just back after attending a wedding... gotta continue this game now. time to get tensed.
sGIBMBR  +   434d ago
I'm so glad to see this game doing well, it's the highlight of the generation for me. There's plenty of other games I love from this gen but just the way this game tells it's story is phenomenal!
