Naughty Dog and Sony Computer Entertain certainly struck gold with The Last of Us. Even though the title launched late into the PS3’s lifespan, this new IP is making history in terms of sales. On July 18, sales data for The Last of Us was released and the development team at Naughty Dog should be proud of their historic achievement.

In a word, The Last of Us can be described as brilliant, and that is exactly what we thought of the title – find our full review of The Last of Us here.

As the NPD noted in their report earlier in the day, Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us was the top-selling game in the month of June. Likewise, it was posted the second highest first-month sales of a PS3 game – the top being God of War 3 from March 2010.

Furthermore, The Last of Us is the third highest game to launch during the month of June since the NPD starting tracking sales back in 1995.

Though Sony has not reported exact sale figures for The Last of Us, the ever reliable and accurate NeoGAF member, Cream Sugar, has posted the sale figures for The Last of Us and it is mighty impressive. In June, The Last of Us sold a staggering 985,000 units at retail – this does not include digital sales.

No mention of digital sales has been revealed, but you can safely assume that The Last of Us easily sold over 1 million copies during the month of June.
