The Last of Us is the ‘Fastest Selling New Software Title’ in PS3 History

Posted on July 9, 2013 AT 02:57am

Sony has announced that Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us has managed to achieve a lifetime sales total of over 3 million units since its release on June 14, making it the ”fastest selling new software title” in PlayStation 3 history.

The sales include both physical and digital copies sold between June 14 and July 3. Not only is it the fastest selling new software, but it’s also the bestselling PlayStation 3 game of 2013, according to the platform holder.

“These sales figures are a testament to the blockbuster quality of The Last of Us,” said Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida. ”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.”

Yesterday, The Last of Us became the first title in 2013 to hold the top spot in the U.K. chart for four consecutive weeks.
