Motorstorm: Pacific Rift Racks up 1 Million in Worldwide Sales
Posted on December 9, 2008 by Nikhil

The original Motorstorm was one of the games shown at E32005 that garnered massive attention by the media. Though the trailer proved to be CGI, the final product was very close to the target trailer in graphics, and absolutely blew it away in gameplay. Motorstorm proved to be a very good seller for Sony, and eventually helped move systems when it became part of a PS3 bundle pack. Its recent successor, Motorstorm: Pacific Rift, improved on everything that the first game had to offer, and it would seem that recently released sales data would reflect that step forward.

Just a month after hitting shelves, Pacific Rift has already racked up over a million sales worldwide. This would be quite a feat in any situation, but considering that Pacific Rift is a PS3 exclusive title launching among the other holiday games, its sales are simply extraordinary. Most people probably did not expect a racer to do so well at this time of year, but the success of the previous game combined with word of mouth have undoubtedly helped boost its numbers. Let’s hope that Motorstorm 3 continues this high sales trend started by the first two games.
