In October you couldn't glance at your social media feeds and not read some sweet and sappy gamer poetry about Atlus Ltd's Demon's Souls. Unlike other small releases, it appears as if the game's sales matched with the buzz.

Atlus' parent company Index Holding's has posted current sales figures of the studio's products, and in the process, has revealed that the PS3-exclusive rogue-like has wildly outperformed sales expectations by triple.
