As of July 3rd, The Last of Us is officially the fastest-selling game in the history of the PS3. Sony has shipped more than 3.4 million copies of both Blu-ray discs and downloadable versions. Sony counts sales as copies shipped to retailers, while other companies often count copies that are sold to consumers. The title is also the fastest-selling PS3 game of 2013, beating out massive AAA titles such as Bioshock: Infinite and Tomb Raider.

The Last of Us is being praised as an absolute masterpiece in the gaming industry, scoring perfect 10’s across numerous websites and being a top contender as Game of the Year. The post-apocalyptic tale comes from the team behind Jak and Daxter on the PS2 and the Uncharted series on the PS3. Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios President, Shuhei Yoshida, had some choice words to share on the good news.

These sales figures are a testament to the blockbuster quality of The Last of Us. 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 is definitely in the running for my personal game of the year, so this news makes me really happy to have a game of this pedigree be noticed.
