Naughty Dog's popular PS3 exclusive action game The Last of Us, has sold six million copies to date, according to a Sony Computer Entertainment America announcement today. SCEA did not say whether those numbers represent units sold to retailers or units sold to consumers... The Last of Us sales topped 3.4 million units between the game's global release on June 14 and July 3.
Hitting that milestone officially made the game the fastest selling new franchise in the console's history and the quickest selling PS3 game of 2013, according to Sony.
The game has already been optioned to be made into a major motion picture, with creative director Neil Druckmann writing the script; Naughty Dog co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra, and game director Bruce Straley will also play major roles in the development of the film. It will be based on the story presented in the game and not a brand new storyline...
