Unsurprisingly, The Last of Us 2 sales have reportedly broken records in the UK region, making it Sony’s fastest seller this generation.

As reported by Gameindustry.biz, The Last of Us 2 sales were more than it’s predecessor by 76%, while only inching past Uncharted 4 by 1%. UK as a whole in terms of physical retail sales, it has sold more than 40% than the previous record of this year held by Animal Crossing: New Horizon. Down below you’ll find a list of the top 10 charting titles in the UK region.

  6. Grand Theft Auto 5

Very impressive if we do say ourselves, and this isn’t even taking into account the digital sales of the game. According to the details found on gamestat gamestat, there have been at least a minimum of 2.8 million players who have earned at least one trophy in the game. That number doesn’t represent a 1:1 sales figure, but nonetheless it gives us some ballpark expectations.

The Last of Us Part 2 released this last Friday, with the reported details being data collected from just the last two days. Despite ongoing pandemics, it seems that sales remained unaffected and are going strong. It will be really interesting once Sony reveals the true figures, which we expect to see in a matter of a couple of weeks.
