Sony has announced that Bloodborne sales have surpassed one million since launch. These one million copies have been sold-to consumers either through retailers, or through the PlayStation Store. This is big news for Bloodborne, a new IP, and even more applause-worthy considering it took less than a month to reach one million.
“Bloodborne was a new challenge for us, and our goal was to create a title that took full advantage of the power of PS4,” SCE Worldwdie Studios president Shuhei Yoshida told Gematsu. “I am thrilled that so many users have been enjoying the extremely rich and detailed world, beautiful melancholic atmosphere and palpable tension of Bloodborne. SCE WWS will continue to bring exciting software titles that offer entertainment experiences only possible on PS4.”
Over on the PS Blog, new details were revealed for Patch 1.03. As promised, 1.03 will reduce load times and provide certain performance optimizations. Bloodborne is a fantastic game, but its abhorrently long load times and occasional framerate dip do become annoying. From Software and Sony hope to have the patch out before the end of the month.
