Dark Souls shipments at 1.5 million

From Software and Namco Bandai’s hard as nails RPG Dark Souls has shipped 1.5 million copies worldwide, the pair’s announced.

They’ve also broken it down by region, revealing that 370,000 units went to Japan (where only the PS3 version was released), 620,000 to North America, 470,000 to Europe, and finally 40,000 to Asia.

How many of those copies have actually reached the hands of consumers is unknown, but we’re sure the hair-per-person averages in the group are down dramatically.
