    dark souls more popular than demon's souls

    just saw an article on ign that dark souls has shipped over 1.5 million in its first month. already past what demon's souls sold-about 1.2 million. is a third installment in the franchise a no brainer or what? any ideas of what you would want in a possible third game?

    I know the lack of it is part of the appeal, but voice chat! It seriously slowed things down in Demon's Souls, and it probably slows Dark Souls down too, but I haven't done too much multiplayer to confirm.

    Thanks to Thunder for the platbar!!!

    It probably has something to do with being Multi-platform and the fact that Demon's Souls spread pretty well.

    ...and that Namco Bandai has more in the way of advertising resources and name recognition than Atlus. Plus, after Demons Souls, we were all very ready to die again :-P

    I'm not surprised. Demon's Souls didn't start to get 'popular' until later on. It wasn't advertised anywhere near what Dark Souls was.

    Not sure how this is big news; Dark Souls in multi-platform, and fans of the Demon's Souls games will also want to get this. Add in the fact that the advertising for Dark Souls was some of the best I've seen, and there you go.

    Lol Hitman and Jack said pretty much what I wanted . Another thing that helped DArk Souls is NOT being Japanese exclusive through Sony for first almost year. Then the publishing issues and only coming to like NA and such rather than a world release. Namco helped get DS in UK and really got rolling with it.

    I still prefer playing Demon's Souls myself, but LOVE DKS just as much thanks to advancements and new environments and fresh ideas with it.. Sif ..
