Journey Sets PSN Sales Record, Official Soundtrack Coming
No title deserves this more.
Journey is arguably one of the best games of the entire generation, and the PlayStation users have responded: As revealed at the PlayStation Blog, Thatgamecompany's latest has broken records, "surpassing all first and third-party games to become the fastest-selling game ever released in the SCEA region on the PlayStation Network."
Studio boss Jenova Chen talks about how many positive emails they got about their last title, Flower (ranging from a 9-year-old girl to a soldier returning from Iraq), and he says this was a great part of the team's inspiration. Now, more letters are pouring in for Journey...in fact, they've received more letters in two weeks than they did in three years for Flower. And in celebration of the developer's success, they will be providing fans with the official Journey soundtrack, available both on the PSN and iTunes on April 10, along with a CD release "in the near future."
I don't think anyone will begrudge Chen and Co. the success they've had. Their games are pretty damn amazing.
