Alien: Isolation passes 1 million sales

Alien Isolation Tweet

Just announced via the Alien: Isolation twitter account, SEGA’s survival horror title has managed to break the 1 million sales barrier. It’s interesting to note that they announced this figure prior to their full year report, perhaps an indication that the management were happy enough with the figure to announce it. A massive congratulations is in order for the team being able to pull off a true survival horror title in this age and being able to sell it to the masses, hopefully the sales for the title continues over the coming months before we’re updated with a new figure in March to see just how long this game’s tail is.

UPDATE: SEGA has clarified that Aliens: Colonial Marines‘ 1.31m figure represents units sold-in to retailers. Alien: Isolation‘s 1 million milestone represents units sold through to consumers.

After the break, read SEGA’s official press release.

SEGA announces that Hatsune Miku: Project Diva series has shipped over 1 million units

SEGA has announced that the Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA series on PSP has shipped over 1 million units. That would mean this is counting sales for Hatsune Miku Project DIVA, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA 2nd, and Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Extend. To celebrate this milestone SEGA has announced they will be distributing commemorative pins to 390 randomly chosen fans that fill out the survey on the game’s site. The survey will run from April 12th to April 27th.

I guess that new Hatsune Miku game being teased as “Next Hatsune Miku Project Diva” shouldn’t come as a shock seeing how the series did over a million in Japan. Some might argue and say it’s three different titles. Actually that is rather good for the series being a niche Japan only series. Not to mention the Extend game is just a re-release of Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA 2nd.
