Ever since we arrived at The Last Of Us Part II release date, the game has been the talk of the town. People have strong opinions about the game, particularly from its winding, ambitious and uncomfortable story. I’m seemingly moments away from finishing the game myself. One final push and I’ll finally grasp what all the fuss is about.
The Last Of Us Part II Becomes Faster-Selling PS4 Game
Now, Sony has announced that it has sold incredibly well. Eric Lempel, Senior Vice President, PlayStation Worldwide Marketing, made this announcement on the PlayStation Blog. ” The Last of Us Part II is now the fastest-selling first-party PS4 exclusive ever with more than 4 million copies sold through as of June 21,” he wrote.
There are only two other PS4 exclusives that come remotely close to matching these numbers. God Of War sold 3.1 million copies in its first three days, while Spider-Man sold 3.3 million copies in the same period. This according to information from gamesindustry.biz. The folks over at Naughty Dog, who developed the game, were also delighted by this.
The Last Of Us Part II Director Thanks Fans
Director Neil Druckmann, in particular, also expressed his gratefulness to the fans. “The Last of Us Part II was made possible thanks to the efforts of the hundreds of talented and passionate developers here at Naughty Dog. We can imagine no greater honor than seeing that same passion mirrored by the people playing it. Thank you for helping us reach this amazing milestone,” he wrote.
The Last Of Us Part II Will Be Playable On The PlayStation 5 Once The Console Launches
The Last Of Us Part II is, of course, the sequel to 2013’s The Last Of Us on the PlayStation 3. Naughty Dog re-released that game on the PlayStation 4 as The Last Of Us Remastered. However, The Last Of Us Part II won’t get a similar treatment.
This due to the fact that the PlayStation 5 is backwards compatible with PlayStation 4 games. In fact, we already know that The Last Of Us Part II will run on the PlayStation 5 as is. If it looks this good already, it should look even better on the PlayStation 5.
