Last we checked, Metro: Last Light topped the UK charts, but it was a hollow victory as its UK retail sales didn't even match those of its much less publicised predecessor. That only tells a small part of the story, however, as both digital and US retail sales were significantly higher.
How much higher, you ask? Publisher Deep Silver didn't list exact figures, but noted that across all formats worldwide, Last Light sold more units in one week than Metro 2033 did in three months.
Additionally, in the US Last Light sold more retail copies in one week than Metro 2033 has in its over three year lifetime. Of course, Last Light was also released on PS3, whereas the first game was only available on Xbox 360 and PC.
