Such a fantastic game. My second favorite game series of all time behind Elder Scrolls. There's not a single flaw in this game. Pure perfection.

well,it passed demon's souls sales by a good ten thousand right now if you also consider the xbox360 and Steam sales.I think it sold enough on the PC so that they make their next game to the PC too,which will be great because I'll probably keep on the PC instead of buying a next generation console.

Demons Souls is still king in my opinion. Dark souls should of stayed only on the ps3 instead of splitting the user base up between the 360 and PC pirates. The sales don't seem to have been worth the ports either. ps3 looks to outsells both combined.

one of the most amazing games out there.I am sure a PC release and price drop would be enough to make sales walk again.

A203D: Bethesda has been churning out bug-riddled tripe this entire gen. Regardless of excuses on downgrading, they've had more than enough time to get their stuff in order. As for From's issues, a little frame rate lag in Blightown is nothing compared to full on crashes, game save loses, frame rate issues, ect that typify a Bethesda release.

A203D posted 14/02/2012, 12:59
@vic_viper. Its dosent really work like that because Bethesda are primarily based in the PC market. they've had to downgrade Skyrim to play on consoles. so it is a luxury they've even bothered downgrading their games so we can play them. so while i agree they need to get their house in order, From Software have recently discussed the framerate issues in this game that was specifically designed for consoles. and having experienced an abundance of those issues first hand, i can say i am truly pissed with the developers who let me down because of these problems.

What? How can you compare Skrim with Dark Souls? Dark Sould will surpass Demon's Souls sales easily on PS3 alone. Thats a realistic goal for the game,they never said they competeing with Elder Scrolls.

Fantastic sales. So glad to see this "franchise" improve on popularity. To think Sony didn't want to publish Demon's Souls outside of Japan. Kinda glad really otherwise Dark Souls wouldn't be multiplat and I want as many people as possible to be able to experience this game.

@Michelasso I think the sales are awesome, it sold more on the west on 3 weaks tham Demons Soul did in 10. And Im not even counting the numbers for the 360. This game will reach 1 mil units sold across all plataforms by weak 6-7 probably, Demons Souls tokk almost 2 year to get to 1 mil. This numbers make me happy, this pretty much guarantees another Souls game. This and Demons Souls are definetly on my top 5 for games this generation, masterpieces.
