Thanks to the show, the game re-entered the charts and saw a huge increase in sales.
The Last of Us is back at No. 20, with sales up 238% week-over-week (thanks GI.biz). The jump is due to be based on the title-based HBO series, available to watch in the UK via Sky Atlantic.
“The Last of Us: Remastered Edition” also returned to the list with a sales growth of 322%, ranking 32nd.
The HBO show had one of the biggest debuts on the platform, narrowly missing the No. 1 spot from Game of Thrones spinoff House of the Dragon.
The first episode had more than 4.7 million viewers, a number that jumped to 18 million within a week of airing. Ratings for Episode 2 jumped 22 percent to 5.7 million total viewers, making it the biggest jump between episodes 1 and 2 for an HBO original series (via Variety).
Episode 3, Long Long Time, airs Sunday, January 29 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO and HBO Max. It will air on Monday 30 January at 2am on Sky Atlantic in the UK and on the NOW streaming service.
