Dark Souls ships 1.5 million copies


From Software's Dark Souls seems to be doing pretty well, with Namco Bandai revealing that 1.5 million copies have shipped throughout the world. It's hardly Call of Duty numbers, but it's impressive for what it is!

40,000 of those copies went to Asia, 370,000 to Japan, 470,000 to Europe and 620,000 to America. Charting in Japan and the United Kingdom, Dark Souls has done a damn admirable job, demonstrating that a less mainstream Japanese titles can perform well if they get enough good buzz behind them. 

It's always encouraging to see a game like this do well, especially in North America. Other publishers would do well to observe what all types of games can accomplish with the right marketing push.
