The Last of Us Achieves Big Sales Numbers

by Prima Games Staff

Naughty Dog, the studio behind the Uncharted series, has proven once again that it’s a development force to be reckoned with.

The company’s latest endeavor, The Last of Us, which shipped last month for PlayStation 3 and digitally on PlayStation Network, has whipped up some incredible sales numbers. The game has exceeded 3.4 million units sold in its first three weeks of release – an impressive stat considering it’s a summertime title.  That makes it the fastest selling game in the PlayStation 3’s life span.

“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.”

Congrats to Naughty Dog for releasing such a superb title and one of the year’s best.  

The Last of Us is available now for PlayStation 3.
