The game, developed in conjunction between Sony and From Software, has gone on to become one of Playstation's system sellers in the US - all due to favourable word of mouth. The game's sold nearly over 250,000 copies. So why did Sony pass the publishing off to Atlus then?
“That was a mistake,” said SCE localisation liaison Yeonkyung Kim. “It should have come out as a first-party title.”</blockquote>

Kim went on to state that original sales estimates for the game were no higher than 15,000. We doubt Sony will make the same mistake for Demon's Souls 2. Expect that game to get a big push.
