There are some notable surprises in the most recent UK Boxed Charts, including a significant increase in sales for The Last of Us games. Following the release of its TV series, The Last of Us 1 sales numbers have experienced substantial growth.
It goes without saying that the recent launch of the tv show that shares the same story is to credit, but the scale of this specific increase—238 percent since last week is fairly amazing. The HBO series The Last of Us has only had a few episodes, but it has already proven to be a huge success.
The Last Of Us 1 sales numbers have increased by 238%
The information was provided by the website GamesIndustry.biz, which also highlighted several other sudden increases in sales. The Last of Us Part 1 is back on the charts at No. 20 with a 238% increase in sales week-over-week, making it the highest climber of the week. Moreover, The Last of Us: Remastered, also managed to reach the rankings, appearing at position number 32. This shows a sales increase of 322 percent, which is quite astounding.
Although The Last Of Us 1’s actual sales numbers were not disclosed, judging by percentages, it is nevertheless astonishing to see an old game return to the top of the rankings. The success of the series may spark long-term enthusiasm for the game it is based on, so it will be fascinating to see if this is simply a brief spike. Only two episodes have been made available thus far, and more are likely to be released in the future.
The Last of Us TV series’ season premiere received more than 10 million views in the first two days after its release. The show already had one of the best ratings of all time. Fans of the series will undoubtedly like playing the game because it is so similar to the series. The reported The Last Of Us 1 sales numbers are really justifiable, even if we assume that at least 10% of all viewers will end up buying the game. We’ll have to watch to see how significantly the game’s sales increase once the new episodes are out.
