Uncharted 4: A Thief's End just set the record for first-party PlayStation 4 sales in its first week.

Sony reported that sales for the title in its first week reached 2.7 million units worldwide, making it the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 first-party title of all time.

Sony took time to congratulate Uncharted 4 developer Naughty Dog on its blog.

"It's hard to believe that it's been nearly two weeks since we officially released Uncharted 4: A Thief's End on PS4," Sony writes. "It's one of the most beautifully crafted games I've ever played, and the great reception we've seen from the community has been amazing and humbling. Naughty Dog's exceptionally talented team has created magic once again, carefully constructing an adrenaline-pumping, thrilling, and beautifully written culmination to Nathan Drake's adventures. They truly outdid themselves."

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End released on May 10 and not only managed to garner a lot of sales, but also brought in excellent reviews from critics. Those reviews were so positive that when the only negative review got posted on Metacritic, fans moved to have that review struck from the record by starting a petition. Troy Baker, one of the game's voice actors, tweeted that petition, and as of now, it has received over 9,000 signatures.

Those fans had a point: the Washington Post review did not have a score attached to it, but Metacritic made one up, anyway: 40 out of 100. As Metacritic aggregates score-based reviews, fans aren't too happy that the site decided to attach one to a review that did not actually feature a score.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End serves as the final chapter in the Nathan Drake story. The game introduced a long-lost brother and a treasure for which Nathan's mother once searched.

"The success of the game is a testament to the caliber of the team at Naughty Dog and their unwavering commitment to their fans," Sony writes. "Most of all, we wanted to give a special thank you to all of you who joined us so far on this incredible adventure, and have embarked with us on Nathan Drake's final, wild ride."

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is available now for PlayStation 4.
