The Last of Us Did Really, Really Well In Japan

Last week, Sony Computer Entertainment released The Last of Us in Japan, and the game sold 117,465 copies in its first week. Sales tracker Media Create reports that the game sold through 88.01% of its initial shipment.

 

As we reported on Wednesday, The Last of Us debuted just below the numbers of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. That said, The Last of Us is a brand new I.P. unlike Uncharted; and furthermore, the game is rated CERO Z, the highest age rating in Japan, which is usually considered a hindrance to sales.

 

All things considered, The Last of Us did very well for itself at launch indeed.
