I think this whole Last of Us thing might be kind of popular.

It looks like The Last of Us HBO series is pulling in quite the crowd. We already know that the debut episode did exceptionally well for the network, but there was another added boon. Sales of The Last of Us Part 1 and The Last of Us: Remastered are up 322% in the UK.

According to GamesIndustry.biz, the 2022 remake for the PlayStation 5 re-entered the top sales charts in the 20th spot for the week ending January 21, 2023. This particular release saw a 238% sales jump when compared to the previous week. For the PlayStation 4 release, The Last of Us: Remastered, sales were up 322% compared to the previous week.

These figures are only taking into account the physical sales of The Last of Us during this time. There is no saying just how many digital copies were sold in the same span of time. Despite these substantial bumps in copies sold compared to the previous week, the Naughty Dog developed title just couldn't quite overcome the sales figures of newer titles. The Switch exclusive RPG, Fire Emblem Engage, took the top spot while several 2022 releases filled out the other top slots. The Last of Us originally came out almost nine years ago at this point. Just the fact that it entered the charts again at all is rather remarkable.

This indicates that the HBO show has done a great job at pulling in those who were not already fans of the games. It also drives home the fact that Sony knew exactly what they were doing when they released The Last of Us Part 1 on PlayStation 5 for $69.99 (USD). The Last of Us Part 1 is also headed to the PC and will be out on March 3, 2023.
