Sony and Naughty Dog have announced The Last of Us Part II has managed to sell 4 million copies in three days, becoming the fastest selling PS4 exclusive of all time. Sony haven’t specified whether that includes physical copies and digital copies, but either way it’s an incredibly impressive statistic.
When talking about the sales figures, The Last of Us Part II’s director Neil Druckmann said the following: “We are so immensely grateful to the millions of fans around the world that have played The Last of Us Part II and shared their experiences with us over the last week. We set out to tell a new kind of story, one that deals with difficult themes and would challenge you in unexpected ways.
He goes on to say: “Hearing how the experience has resonated with so many of you and witnessing the type of thoughtful discussions it has sparked has been so incredible. We’ve also been so inspired by your creativity — whether it’s your gorgeous Photo Mode shots, jaw-dropping gameplay GIFs, or the songs you’ve recorded using Ellie’s guitar.”
