More Demon's Souls Copies Incoming
It's one of the best PlayStation 3 exclusives available and arguably the best RPG of the generation to date, so of course, demand is going to be high.
Therefore, if you can't find Demon's Souls anywhere, you shouldn't be too surprised. Historically, Atlus has usually underestimated the appeal of their excellent titles; they desperately needed to release more of the original Disgaea back in the PS2 days after it started pulling down super high review scores. The same thing is happening here but this time, Atlus is on top of things and in their latest Twitter update, they say they're currently in the process of shipping more copies to stores nationwide. So don't freak out just yet because the copies are indeed coming. For our part, this is a game that's going to require your utmost attention and patience, as the difficulty can really smack you upside the head if you're not prepared. So if you're pining for some hardcore RPG action and you haven't yet scored a copy of Demon's Souls, I suggest you take a deep breath and compose yourself...if you go into this game annoyed or aggravated, you are so gonna die. Fast and frequently.
What we really need is From Software to step up and announce a sequel. Yeah, that's what the loyalists are lookin' for!
