Naughty Dog has struck gold with The Last of Us as it has entered into the record books as the "fastest selling new software title" ever in the history of PlayStation 3. The number crunching includes physical and digital.

Since launch on June 14th to July 3rd is has sold over 3.4 million. It's all a "testament to the blockbuster quality" of Naughty Dog's latest, hails Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida.

The Last of Us has enjoyed its fourth consecutive week atop the UK chart despite sales expectantly dropping off. People must be desperate for some reliable phone nookie.

"These sales figures are a testament to the blockbuster quality of The Last of Us," said Shuhei Yoshida.

"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."

Thanks to those four straight weeks at the top, The Last of Us became the UK chart's best chart hog for 2013.

A new IP at the end of a generation, and a horror game to boot. Shove it up your ARSE, publishers.
