Demon's Souls PS5 PlayStation 5

One of the standout launch titles for PlayStation 5 was undoubtedly Demon's Souls, a stellar remake of the game that kickstarted the Souls-like formula. Developed by Bluepoint Games, the action RPG is a beautiful recreation of the PS3 original, neatening up some archaic systems while polishing the visuals to a stunning sheen. It seems that it resonated with early adopters pretty well, too, if recent sales data is anything to go by.

It's just been announced that Bluepoint Games is joining PlayStation Studios as a first-party team, and within the press release for this news is an update to the sales figure for the team's latest effort. As of 19th September 2021, Demon's Souls has sold "more than 1.4 million copies" since its initial launch. Considering PS5 has sold over 10 million units, that's not a bad attach rate for what is a pretty hardcore release.

Earlier in the year, Sony released some sales figures for other major PlayStation exclusives, such as Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. It seems all of them are doing well, which is always good to see.
