The Last of Us outlasts the rest to top UK for fourth week


The Last of Us is the first of 2013 to make it four weeks as the UK no. 1, proving that's it really clicked with the country's consumers. Naughty Dog's PS3 horror survives a week longer at the summit than both BioShock Infinite and Dead Island: Riptide did, albeit in what's been a quiet month or so.

The UK's currently consumed with its new champion of Wimbledon, the first British man to win the tennis tournament since the Stone Age. As for games, it's hardly championship stuff at UK retail, with very few new releases served up. The highest-ranking is Project X Zone, rallying to 18th. In the top ten there's barely any changeovers as Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition and Animal Crossing: New Leaf continue to be smashes, netting second and fourth.

Top 10 UK Software Sales (All Formats); week ending July 6:

  1. The Last of Us
  2. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
  3. FIFA 13
  4. Animal Crossing: New Leaf
  5. Assassin's Creed 3
  6. Tomb Raider
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
  8. The Sims 3: Island Paradise
  9. Deadpool
  10. Far Cry 3
