On the 14th of June, the last of us, a action-adventure packed game based on the horror survival genre was launched for the PS3.
The game was developed by naughty dog and was published by Sony themselves.
The game, which was set in a post-apocalyptic United States, was one of the most successful games of the month, and was widely appreciated for its amazing gameplay as well as a sturdy story line.
And on the 29th of July, the game was remastered and was re-released for the PlayStation 4, a move which was hailed by the gamers and proved lucky for both, the developers at naughty dogs and the publishers at Sony, as the game has landed up topping the July Sales charts for games in the US markets.
The game, which has been released for the PS3 and the PS4, is hailed as one of the best games of the year and re-releasing it for the latest console by Sony, the Playstation 4 has been a great business move as that has directly impacted the performance of the sales as gamers who had not purchased this game for their PS3s got reminded about it, and the game also ventured into the markets of the PS 4 gamers who had not purchased it till now.
The gaming industry, all in all, has seen a growth of 16 percent, compared to the july of last year, while the software industry has been down by 15% than compared to that of the previous year. Also considering the sales of PS 3 and XBOX 360 in a period of nine months from their release, the XBOX One and the PS 4 have an 80% growth over the previous consoles.
The list of the top 10 games of the month of July is topped by The Last of Us, which is closely followed by Minecraft on the no. 2 spot, while FIFA 14 remains perched at the no. 3 spot, years after its release.
