The Last of Us Sells 3.4 Million Worldwide


Naughty Dog’s latest game, The Last of Us, is doing very well for itself—Sony announced this week that the game has sold over 3.4 million copies worldwide thus far, making it the fastest selling new game on the PlayStation 3.


“These sales figures are a testament to the blockbuster quality of The Last of Us,” said Sony 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.”


The Last of Us was released in mid-June.
