It's not enough to just watch The Last of Us — viewers are ready to play, too. As The Last of Us makes its television debut, the first chapter in Joel and Ellie's journey are reaping the benefits with a hefty jump in UK sales on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

According to, the game's 2022 PS5 remake, The Last of Us Part 1, reentered the UK sales charts at the No. 20 spot after a 238% jump in sales for the week of January 21, 2023.

Its PS4 predecessor, The Last of Us: Remastered, also saw a sizeable boost with a 322% sales bump that placed it at No. 32. Perhaps the least surprising detail is that those numbers coincide with the first episode of its live-action The Last of Us series, which debuted on January 15.

The UK data only reflects physical sales, so the number of viewers who rushed to play Joel and Ellie's story through PlayStation's digital storefront remain an unknown.Despite the boost, The Last of Us lost out to heavy hitters like newer PlayStation titles and the usual Nintendo staples.
