It turns out that quite a lot of you were willing to give Dark Souls a chance. Far more than I would've imagined, that's for certain. According to Namco Bandai, From Software's challenging action-RPG has sold 1.19 million units in Europe and North America.
If you're curious about how the game fared in Japan, note that Namco Bandai did not publish the title in that region. Be sure to take a look at the numbers for the company's other games, though; Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, for instance, came in at 1.07 million copies sold -- and that actually includes Japan.
As much as recent comments made about the upcoming PC version have bummed me out, hearing that Dark Souls performed so well on consoles is satisfying indeed. More of these games, please!
