    Dark Souls sold 2.36 million copies worldwide

    Didn't see this posted yet so I thought I'd share for anyone who hadn't heard this. Just revealed yesterday/today-ish, these are pretty impressive numbers: 2,367,000, that is a game with a very long tail, as by March 2012 copies sold was somewhere around 1.19 million. Apparently 692,000 of the sales were from AotA editions.

    Looks like FromSoft is definitely in Namco's good books at this point.

    Pat yourselves on the back, everyone!
    cheers

    Dark Souls deserves far, far more than just 2 million copies

    Skyrim, with it's metric ****-ton of bugs, bad storyline and gameplay, sold 10 million copies so far

    Personally Skyrim's numbers don't bother me compared to Dark Souls. Skyrim is the pop music of RPG's and as we all know pop music sells regardless the quality of the product because the numbers are just there. The fact that Dark Souls sold this well with no intention aiming at the lowest common denominator shows the quality of it and that's all that matters.

    I think those numbers actually compare favorably to Skyrim, Hachouma. It's a smaller number, obviously, but for a game that was much less heralded it's a figure that one shouldn't shake one's stick at.

    It also shows what great staying power/lasting appeal the game has. It is exceedingly likely that players will still be playing the game well up until the sequel's release. That's a success in my book.
