Journey Becomes the Fastest Selling U.S. PSN Game Ever

THE BUZZ: Journey has officially become the fastest selling U.S. PSN game ever released.

“Thanks to you, Journey has officially broken PlayStation Network and PlayStation Store sales records, surpassing all first- and third-party games to become the fastest-selling game ever released in the SCEA region on the PlayStation Network,” wrote Journey creator Jenova Chen on the PlayStation Blog. “We have received more letters from fans in the two weeks since Journey’s launch than we did for Flower over the past three years!”

Chen didn’t offer specific numbers, but he did share this lovely image below as a thankyou.

EGM’s TAKE: This is honestly no surprise. The amount of hype that this game has received in the months leading up to launch, coupled with the success of the beta, could only mean one thing: massive sales numbers. It just shows that a game doesn’t have to adhere to mainstream rules to be a success. Hopefully Journey’s success will inspire other developers to experiment and try out new game design techniques. We need more games like this one.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
