Naughty Dog’s The Last Of Us has shifted more than 3.4 million copies, as of last Tuesday (so it’s undoubtedly even more just now) – that makes it the fastest selling PS3 game of 2013 and the fastest selling new software title in the entire history of PlayStation.
That’s not bad numbers for a new IP in just three weeks.
“These sales figures are a testament to the blockbuster quality of The Last of Us,” said Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios.
“The teams at Naughty Dog are true visionaries and their storytelling capabilities are second to none, this title is an undisputed demonstration of that. SCE continues to be committed to delivering unique gameplay experiences that redefine the interactive entertainment industry and The Last of Us is a perfect example.”
That’s 1,000 sales for every word of my review. I think.
