  The 10 best selling games in PS3 history

  Gran Turismo 6 - 5 Million Copies Selling

  The Gran Turismo series offers an in-depth look at the world of cars and racing, and in particular we can say that Gran Turismo 6 topped that series of performances, albeit at an uncomfortable time.

  It wasn't a bad game at all, but it was introduced a month before the PS4 release, and the focus was really elsewhere.  Some even considered it a disappointment due to the developers' poor timing and high expectations.

  God of War III: 5.2 million copies sold

  God of War III was, at the time, the end of another saga of the franchises that have been accompanying us.

  With Kratos on his journey to slay the gods of ancient Greece, the title builds on previous installments in the series by providing new enemies and more techniques during battles.  It was not a revolution but it was a success.


  Gran Turismo 5 Prologue - 5.3 million copies sold

  Gran Turismo 5 Prologue will be remembered for introducing many of the elements that characterize the game.  For example, he was the first to fully enable online play, beating opponents in matches.

  Despite initial complaints about its price, it ended up winning the majority, as its numbers show.

  Batman: Arkham City - 5.4 million copies sold

  Considering it's been ranked as one of the best games of all time for Metacritic, it can't really surprise us that Batman: Arkham City is one of the best-selling PS3 games.

  In fact, the numbers on their sales are not official, but it's a lower estimate according to several sources.  Undoubtedly, its popularity leads us to believe that in practice, there is more sales than is known.

  Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots - 6 Million Copies Sold

  Metal Gear Solid 4 concludes the story of Solid Snake with classic locations, new enemies, and other traditional elements of the saga, as we are called upon to fight in a world devastated by war.

  Rarely has its level of sales been as guaranteed as all previous deliveries.

  Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - 6.5 million copies sold

  While the original Uncharted does not appear on this list, Uncharted 2 is an acknowledgment or appreciation of the original.

  In this game we find Nathan Drake wading through temples and villages and defending himself against soldiers and inhuman monsters to recover a dangerous treasure.  And all with the additional multiplayer mode.

  Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception - 6.6 million copies sold

  Released two years after its previous release, Uncharted 3 introduced a new story and new locations for fans of Nathan Drake to delve deeper into this tale, and the boy has managed to attract audiences.

  One interesting detail is that the marketing campaigns around the game have been plenty, bold and effective.


  The Last of Us - 7 Million Copies Sold

  The Last of Us has sold a total of 17 million copies if you count PS4 sales as well.  As a result, it's not hard to assume that it's one of the classic titles for the PS3.

  With the characters Joel and Ellie, who traveled to the United States during the zombie apocalypse, we are in front of a title that places great emphasis on the development of the story and character, and fully engaging in what happens to them.

  Gran Turismo 5 - 11.9 million copies sold

  Perhaps thanks to the success of its introduction, which we have already talked about, Gran Turismo 5 has been launched to stir up comments.  Once again, unknown models and a dynamic weather system were among the novelties.

  Grand Theft Auto V - 29.5 million copies sold

  We've been unanimously considered the best PS3 game ever, we have Grand Theft Auto V. Known by any player on this console, past and next, we point to one of the most successful franchises of all time, a game awaiting the promise of a GTA V version for PS5 and Xbox Series  X.

  It doesn't need an introduction more than this, sales are nearly three times that of her nearest chaser, one barely has a PS3 at home, and he doesn't put in a lot of hours for GTA V.


  Many of the exclusives on this list have been relaunched on PS4 in some way, with the exception of Gran Turismo.  This only confirms that we have been in the presence of really good titles, well finished.

  This is the reason why they are in our retina, and why they continue to have an effect today.
