Anticipating today’s scheduled release of NPD’s June US sales data, Sony has highlighted the strong performance of PlayStation 3 exclusives.

“According to the latest NPD report, PlayStation continues to see growth in software with a strong demand for exclusive PlayStation 3 franchise titles,” SCE America’s Patrick Seybold said in a press release.

“The recently launched InFamous 2 was the number one software SKU in June.

“In addition, momentum is accelerating with the upcoming fall releases of Resistance 3 and Uncharted 3 on the horizon. This week the Uncharted 3 multiplayer beta surpassed 1.5 million unique players, demonstrating the strength of the PlayStation platform and consumers’ interest in gaming experiences that combine rich stories, challenging gameplay, and exhilarating 3D immersion.”

Naughty Dog has extended the Uncharted 3 beta by 24 hours.

The full NPD report is expected later today.
