Sony Computer Entertainment today announced that the global sales of The Last of Us exceeded 3.4 million units (including both Blu-ray disc sell-in number and download version) as of July 3rd. This sales figure was achieved in less than three weeks since the global launch on June 14th. The PlayStation 3 exclusive title released to universal critical acclaim has surpassed all sales expectations to become the fastest-selling PS3 title of 2013.

The Last of Us delivers an evocative journey of survival in a world radically transformed, twenty years after a virulent pandemic of the cordyceps fungus has ravaged the human population. The rich story provides a realistic experience that explores the depths of humanity through main characters Joel and Ellie. Their journey is rife with emotionally charged moments as the narrative centers on themes of survival, loyalty, love and redemption.

"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."
