Bloodborne Wanderer

Can you smell the iron? According to Sony, PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne had sold over one million copies by the 5th April, which means that the brilliantly gothic adventure hit that sales milestone after just over a week on the market. To put this feat into perspective, it took Dark Souls II, a multiplatform title, three weeks to ship – not sell – 1.2 million units.

It's an impressive statistic for sure, and there's little doubt that the Japanese giant will be over the moon with the game's success. Its popularity is also arguably a good sign as far as more original, perhaps less mainstream properties go.
