UK Chart: The Last of Us stays top as Minecraft enters second

Naughty Dog's PS3 exclusive holds onto first, while Animal Crossing: New Leaf falls to third.

by

Naughty Dog's PS3-exclusive The Last of Us has scored its third week at the top of the UK chart.

The retail release of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition debuted this week at number two, the best-selling title having previously been available only digitally. Minecraft pushed Animal Crossing: New Leaf down to third.

FIFA 14 drops one place to fourth, followed by the debut of The Sims 3: Island Paradise on the PC. The expansion pack finished one place ahead of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 superhero adventure Deadpool, which landed sixth.

Tomb Raider is seventh, Black Ops II eighth, and Assassin's Creed III ninth.

The World War II-themed PC RTS Company of Heroes 2 launched in 10th, although that figure excludes digital sales.

Best game of this generation, period. I was so sick of games that took control off your hands every two minutes, had no exploration or gameplay vairety, lasted only four to six hours. My PS3 broke down last year, had to get a new one, but boy was it worth every penny. Took me a couple of days to complete, was one of the most memorable gaming experiences I ever had, both from gameplay and story standpoints. Now I'm hooked on the multiplayer, I've never bought a season pass in my life, but if the DLC that comes out for this game is as good as the main game itself, this'll be my first.

@AlexFili 

That's because it is.  ND hit a home run with the MP too.  

To prove how good it is...I bought a PS3 just for TLoU.

@Karmazyn

@SadPSPAddict disc version has this unique smell, you will not get this with digital version.

@SadPSPAddict I hate buying digital because it may not be available for re-download forever. With a disc I know I have the game forever (one reason I hated  xone)

@goldmask i think nostalgia prevents me from saying TLOU is the best game i have ever played, but it's most definitely up there in that list. 

It's certainly one of the best stories i have ever experienced in a video game.

@Kryptonbornson what matters is PS3 exclusives are quality titles. not Kinect adventures, dance revolutions or dance centrals.

@Kryptonbornson I wouldn't call the 17 million units the Uncharted franchise shipped (as of April 2012) poor by any stretch of the imagination.

@roman4545 @Karmazyn AC3 def overrated but people would buy it more often as there is more to do. The world is huge filled with loads of stuff to do. I personally did not like AC3 too much. the worst in the series. If it comes to black Ops 2 it has something that linear Bioshock doesn't - online multiplayer.

@Karmazyn @SadPSPAddict Agreed, and it will be some years before I consider buying a full retail game as a download unless there is some major incentive to do so. But arcade games that usually only offer a few hours gameplay and then you are done are somewhat different. I know minecraft is a bit different in terms of re-playability but....... 

SadPSPAddict

@Atragon @SadPSPAddict Or at least until the console breaks!

I get that point of view but 1. you miss out on loads of great arcade games and 2. no-one knew minecraft was coming to disc eventually and given how well it sold from XBL that there were that many people who still wanted to buy it!

Kryptonbornson

@jophy Most are just copies of other franchises...or more fairly I should say just slotting in AAA games of familiar genres so owners of Sony consoles won't feel they are missing out.

Kryptonbornson

@19James89 I did say most. Not all. Half a million copies isn't a very good follow-up to the Uncharted franchise. God of War Ascension sold more than this, which is still poor for AAA.

Karmazyn

@roman4545 @Karmazyn yup it is more overrated than AC3 but on par with Black Ops 2. The same amount of insane marketing campaign went into this. the end result overhyped and overrated bioshock and Black ops 2.

@Karmazyn

you know it doesnt matter how many contents or gameplay there is.. once its overrated then its overrated.. you still think Bioshock is more overrated than Black Ops 2 or AC3 ?

Karmazyn

@SadPSPAddict @Karmazyn yes this is true, arcade games belong to digital distribution network. Putting minecraft on dvd and selling it in the shop is somehow strange, I think that this is the attempt to shift more copies. I would not like to see this trend evolving, it would be like taking step back. Arcade titles belong to digital distribution networks.

@shark_tsuki @Atragon @SadPSPAddict lol - no it isn't. I can play minecraft until my console breaks - don't need internet, don't need to re-download it. Also I have it on a removable hard drive so I can take it to a different console if mine does break! This is no different to a disc - once the console breaks it is no more!

@Kryptonbornson 

Yeah, Uncharted, Last of Us, God of War, LittleBigPlanet, Heavy Rain, Ratchet & Clank Future, etc. etc. are pure copies indeed....
