Demon's Souls has only just come out in Europe, after an agonising delay. If you thought the wait would mean most of the target audience would have imported and passed on the local release, though, you're dead wrong.

It seems people were willing to wait (or were convinced to buy it a second time because of the PAL version's fancy box), as the game has debuted on the British charts in seventh place, an incredible achievement considering its niche appeal.

So well done, Namco Bandai, for having the guts to publish the game in the Old World, and well done to everyone that picked it up, because it'll send a message that stuff like this can happen more often.
