The Last of Us PC

Even with its silly bugs and performance problems, The Last of Us: Part I has proven to be one of Sony's more popular PC ports. A peak of 36,496 players were all experiencing the Naughty Dog title at once on release day, and the game has consistently pulled in roughly 20,000 users in the evenings each day since. This makes it Sony's fourth most popular PC offering, and that's before the weekend hits. With a hotfix now in place, it's possible more players will jump into The Last of Us: Part I over the coming days and set an even better record.

The overwhelmingly negative word of mouth surrounding the title must surely have stopped many PC users from buying the game in the days since launch, so it's likely The Last of Us: Part I could have ranked higher in the following chart. As of 31st March 2023, Sony's PC ports have recorded the following highest concurrent number of players:
