The Last of Us holds off Minecraft in this week's UK charts


The Last of Us survives as the UK No. 1 this week after seeing off an attack from Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, which crept up to make a No. 2 debut. So that's three weeks in a row for the Naughty Dog gripper, making it one of only a trio of games this year to achieve the feat, the other two being Dead Island: Riptide and BioShock Infinite.

The country's welcome for a physical edition of Minecraft puts the block on Animal Crossing: New Leaf staying in second place, although the cuddly sim only has to move one door down to third. There's even more moving about going on further down the road, since Minecraft is one of four new releases in the UK top ten this week.

Putting more Simoleons into the kitty is Sims 3 expansion pack Island Paradise, which washes up in fifth. Drifting just behind in sixth is Deadpool, while strategy sequel Company of Heroes 2 forms the last line of defense in tenth spot.
