Journey has become the fastest-selling game ever released in the Sony Computer Entertainment America region on the PlayStation Network, thatgamecompany co-founder Jenova Chen has announced.
"Journey has officially broken PlayStation Network and PlayStation Store sales records, surpassing all games ever released on the PlayStation Network to become the fastest-selling game ever released in the SCEA region on the PlayStation Network," wrote Chen on the US PlayStation Blog.
And the response from fans has been overwhelming adds Chen: "After we released Flower in 2009, players sent hundreds of emails about their experience with the game. They varied from a 9-year-old girl to a 65-year-old man, from a marine serving duty overseas, to a soldier returning from Iraq. There were even stories about a mother's memory of her two children in the wheat fields, a surreal butterfly fantasy from someone's grandmother who passed away, and a young man who spoke about his brother who has Down syndrome. Those kinds of letters are what drive us at TGC to keep working.
"And now, the reaction to Journey has been even more overwhelming. 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!"
In related news, Chen announced that the Journey soundtrack will be available April 11 on iTunes and PS Store.
Journey scored a wonderful 9/10 when reviewed by VideoGamer.com.
