We love Journey, and it seems like you guys do too, as the fantastic download-only title has broken PSN sales records in the US.
The information comes courtesy of thatgamecompany co-founder Jenova Chen (via the PlayStation Blog), who stated the following:
“It has been an exciting two weeks for us since we launched Journey on the PlayStation Store. We see the personal connection between our work and the players, which is the most real and priceless reward for us. For that, we thank you so much for your support, for spending time and money to play our game, and for spreading the word about Journey to your dear friends and family. Thanks to you all, Journey has officially broken PlayStation Network and PlayStation Store sales records, surpassing all games ever released on the PlayStation Network to become the fastest-selling game ever released in the SCEA region on the PlayStation Network.”
Chen didn’t reveal any exact numbers, but did state that the game’s soundtrack will be available for download via the PlayStation Store and iTunes on April 11th. There will be a limited CD release as well sometime in the future as well.
We’re certainly happy that Journey has sold well, are you? Let us know via the comments section below.
