Actually, If they'd release Demon's Souls simultaneously in EU and US profits would be more balanced. Sh!tload of people imported this game from US once Asian was hard to obtain. I'm one of them, and pretty much everyone I know in Europe who played it did the same. No one wanted to wait for EU announcement.

I hope the sequel will be a worldwide release

jack_burt0n2859d ago

yeah i did, got the LE for £29.99 and supported Scamco who published it in EU but it also sold out in europe even after that long a wait.

Redempteur2859d ago

the delay for Eu release are so was the right thing to do .

Malice-Flare2859d ago

don't you feel stupid for not bringing this game out under your publisher reigns?

sikbeta2859d ago

Of course, guess they learn the lesson...

Hopefully these sales figures will prompt more games like Demon's Souls to be made.

project dark is not the real sequel to demon's

While I agree with theunleashed comment, Project Dark could wet the appetites of people looking for DS gameplay. Let us hope FROM is up to the task, and give us a good game.

Demon's Souls is a spiritual sucessor to King's Field, as Project Dark is a spiritual sucessor to Demon's Souls.
