Each week we bring you two moments, one of epic success, someone who absolutely nailed it! And another of an epic failure, someone who totally failed it. This week for the Nailed It we tip our hats to Naughty Dog and the Last of Us Part 2 for it’s stellar release. The Last of Us Part Two has officially become the fastest selling PS4 game ever.
Nailed It! Last of Us Part Two
The Last of Us Part Two has officially sold more than 4 Million Copies on the PS4. It did so in just three days since it was released on June 19th. This makes it the fastest selling PlayStation 4 Exclusive ever. It out sold the previous record holder from 2018, Spider-Man. The Last of Us Part Two is a sequel to the acclaimed The Last of Us from 2013 for the PlayStation 3.
The Last of Us Part Two takes place in post-apocalyptic earth where fungal infection in humans has created zombie-like creatures. In the first game it’s revealed that Ellie is immune to the infection and her protector Joel takes her a journey to a group that can make a cure. Things don’t go as planned and eventually Joel and Ellie eventually make their way to a town called Jackson to live our their life. The Last of Us Part Two follows Ellie instead of Joel on her own quest.
The game has since receive high praise and criticism from fans and critics alike. From the violence to the game-design, it’s even been review bombed on sites such as meta-critic for it’s display of a lesbian relationship between Ellie and her love interest, Dina. Regardless of if fans love it or hate, the Last of Us Part Two is an instant classic and you can only play it on the PlayStation 4.
