The Last Of Us Part II Is The Fastest-Selling PlayStation 4 Exclusive Ever
It has only been one week since Naughty Dog finally released one of the most highly anticipated sequels of all-time and fans have been spending quite a bit of time in the new adventure. That said, it is now been revealed that The Last of Us Part II has officially become the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive ever.
The Last of Us Part II was released on June 19th and as of the 21st, it had already sold over 4 million copies, which is truly an incredible feat, especially since we are nearing the end of this generation’s console cycle. To really break that down and put it into perspective, God of War sold 3.1 million copies within that same time frame and Marvel’s Spider-Man sold 3.3 million.

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.”
