PS3 outselling Xbox 360 in the UK this summer

PlayStation 3 was the No.1 console of the summer in the UK with some help from 2013’s second best selling game.

The Last of Us has overtaken BioShock: Infinite as the UK’s No.2 game of the year so far, despite only being available on one format. It is only beaten in Chart-Track’s rankings this year by Square Enix’s Tomb Raider.

And it has had a big impact on PS3 hardware sales. Sony’s console has trended ahead of 360 throughout summer.

“The success of The Last of Us is testament to the vision and quality of Naughty Dog, plus the tremendous support we've received from retail and media partners, who helped make it one of the year’s best selling games,” said SCE UK marketing director Murray Pannell.
