Sony’s PlayStation 3-exclusive The Last of Us has debuted at the top of the U.K. All Format Charts.

Developed by Naughty Dog, the critically-acclaimed post-apocalyptic adventure title beat off competition from 3DS title Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and arrives in stores off the back of a tidal wave of perfect 10s.

The Last of Us is the third biggest-selling launch in the U.K. so far this year, following on from Tomb Raider and BioShock: Infinite. It also had the best debut for a new IP since L.A. Noire in 2011.

Elsewhere, GRID 2 suffers a puncture and falls to third, Tomb Raider survives at four and FIFA 13 has a kick-about at five.
