EEDAR: Demon's Souls could sell 250,000 by year's end
Posted on November 17, 2009 by Nick
 

Demon's Souls took the PS3 community by storm - no one was expecting the innovative action RPG to make as big of a splash as it has.  Despite it's rocky start in the Land of the Rising Sun, the Atlus-published, From Software-developed Demon's Souls shifted over 150K copies in October - outselling the PS3 SKUs of high profile games, like Brtual Legend and Borderlands.  The 'Little Engine that Could' isn't done either - analysts are predicting the game will continue to sell well, with up to a quarter million units sold by the end of 2009.

EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich has been particularly impressed with Demon's Soul's performance, especially in the face of it's esoteric nature.  Divinch fully believes the title "can very well surpass 250,000 units by the end of the year", branding the game "a tremendous accomplishment".

News of Demon's Souls success abroad already has game director Hidetaka Miyazaki talking about a sequel, saying " I’d welcome the chance to create an even better game in the same style if the opportunity arises".  If Demon's Souls does manage another 100K copies during this crowded holiday season, I'd say that wouldn't be too outrageous of a possibility.
