The lights are on
The Last of Us is doing well for for Sony, quickly setting records as the fastest selling game on the PlayStation 3 for 2013, and fastest selling new software title for the console.
Naughty Dog's "grim masterpiece" released on June 14 exclusively for the PlayStation 3 and has so far sold more than 3.4 million copies. Despite being an American game that takes place in the United States, The Last of Us has seen worldwide appeal, also selling well in Japan.

Our TakeIt's always good to see a deserved game see success, especially one that didn't necessarily have everything going for it on paper. The Last of Us is a serious drama, and it's a completely new franchise appearing mere months before the release of the PlayStation 4. Starting new IPs at the end of console life cycles is dangerous, but the huge sales of the The Last of Us shows that quality can persevere. Now the question is, will there be a sequel?

Good. They completely deserve it. It's such an emotionally draining experience (in a good way), especially towards the end of the game. ND sure knows how to make a great game.
This game deserves it.
Not surprising it's a great game despite the friendly AI stupidity.
And they deserved every sale.
I need this game! Been crazy busy.
This game blew me away completely, I recommended to my friends every chance I get. I feel the game doesn't need a sequel, but I would welcome one if there is. I'm sure ND will handle the story well.
I don't want or need a sequel to this masterpiece...leave it alone Naughty Dog!!!
