What is the best-selling PlayStation exclusive ever?

From the beginning with the first, historic PlayStation to the most recent PlayStation 5, Sony consoles have always offered their fans unforgettable productions that have also been able to sell several million copies, thus achieving world fame.

But have you ever wondered what is the best-selling PlayStation exclusive of all time? The vast majority of the productions made by PlayStation Studios have managed to record great sales results, but one in particular has managed to shine more than all the others on the commercial front. This is The Last of Us, the first chapter of the adventures of Joel and Ellie traveling through a post-apocalyptic way destroyed by the plague of Cordyceps, the parasitic fungus that transformed humans into ravenous bloodthirsty monsters.

Originally released on PlayStation 3 on June 14, 2013, in July 2014 the masterpiece Naughty Dog is also re-launched on PlayStation 4 through The Last of Us Remastered, technically perfected editions including the Left Behind expansion. The combined sales of the two versions brought the total figure to 20 million copies, making it the best-selling PlayStation game ever (not counting any multi-platform titles released over time). Albeit in extremis, this result makes The Last of Us enter the list of the 50 best-selling games of all time, occupying the 49th position tied with Grand Theft Auto: Vice City by Rockstar, which in turn sold 20 million units. .

Rumors have also spread about a remake of The Last of Us for PS5, which, however, have not been confirmed for the moment. During 2020, the highly anticipated sequel was released: you can rediscover it by reading our review of The Last of Us Part 2.
