Naughty Dog's critically acclaimed The Last of Us is now the fastest selling PlayStation 3 title of 2013 with sales exceeding 3.4 million combined digital and blu-ray copies in just three weeks of release, as of July 3rd.

"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."

The Last of Us explores survival in a radically transformed world twenty years after a virulent pandemic has ravaged the human population. The game is emotionally charged as the two main characters Joel and Ellie rely on each other to survive, and they're are clickers, which are scary as hell.
