Fungal infections beat mortgages on the UK software chart this week, as PlayStation 3 exclusive The Last Of Us was the new entry that made it to number one, just ahead of Animal Crossing: New Leaf which entered at 2.
The Last Of Us is the third fastest selling game of the year (behind Tomb Raider and BioShock Infinite), Sony's first all format number 1 since Uncharted: Golden Abyss on Vita and the biggest new IP launch since LA Noire. Meanwhile Animal Crossing: New Leaf is the biggest 3DS launch ever enjoyed by a non-Mario title, and a the biggest 3DS launch since Mario Kart 7.
The only other new entry was Rugby Challenge 2: The Lions Tour at 12.
Tomb Raider and Injustice: Gods Among Us both saw jumps thanks to retail promotions this week, but poor old Remember Me plummeted from 3 to 20.
