Sony is ecstatic about the extremely successful and raucous opening of its hit movie on glass screens. There has been a lot of interest in the game, which coincides with the extraordinarily great response that the HBO series has received. The immense success of The Last of Us Part I throughout the UK has made these last days particularly memorable.
There were some who did not believe that the Japanese producer made the correct decision when they decided to pursue a strategy that consisted of investing in films and series, but the success of “The Last of Us” should put an end to any lingering misgivings. It claims a 238% rise in sales in the physical distribution in the UK, which led to it taking 20th place in the most recent list. This boost occurred after the premiere of the first episode of HBO’s The Last of Us Part I on PS5. On the other hand, The Last of Us Remastered for the PlayStation 4 had a 322% increase in sales as compared to the previous week and moved up to the 32nd position.
Fire Emblem Engage is currently the most downloaded game, and it is also the first title to be released in 2023 to reach number one on the sales chart. The game had a start in physical distribution that was 31% lower than the previous part of the series (Fire Emblem Three Houses from 2019), but it is still the second-largest launch of this IP in the United Kingdom.
The sales of FIFA 23 were down by 21 percent, God of War Ragnarok by 26 percent, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe by 3 percent, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 by 29 percent. Games like Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (+104%), Battlefield 2042 (+117%), and The Callisto Protocol, which was on sale and priced at £11, £10, and £30 respectively, can claim increased interest.
