NPD: Darksiders 2 sold 247K copies in August

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1841 days, 14 hours, 30 minutes ago
Saturday, September 08, 2012 8:53:10 AM GMT
Darksiders 2 brought Death to top of the NPD charts for the month of August, having launched on August 14 in North America. In close to two weeks – the cut-off for NPD's August period was August 25 – the Vigil Games sequel managed to move 247,000 copies at retail, GI.biz reports. This figure doesn't account for international sales or Steam, and is perhaps a muted victory in a month that saw software sales go down year-over-year. (more)
