Dark Souls is a million seller

Apparently, Western gamers weren't put off by Dark Souls' hyped-up difficulty. According to figures released by Namco Bandai today, From Software's brutal dungeon crawler has become a million seller, pushing 1.19 million units across North America and Europe. (Japanese sales are not included, as the game was published by Sony across the Pacific.)
The sales figures are even more impressive when you look at Namco Bandai's slate for the quarter. Dark Souls is actually the publisher's biggest-selling game, besting Ace Combat and Soul Calibur 5.
Sales figures are only going to go up once the PC version of the game comes out, as well. It appears Namco Bandai has a winning franchise on its hands--assuming the Dark Souls team wants to work on another Souls game.
