Sony Is Pleased with Bloodborne’s Sales Figures

Bloodborne turned out to be a great success for both From Software and Sony Entertainment. They say that PS4 sales figures went through the roof, despite the title’s new IP. If you played the title, then you might not be surprised that a lot of people enjoyed it as you did.

Sony’s UK director, Fergak Gara, said that they had plans to surpass the Soul series in terms of sales, which they did, and they even did more than that. It looks like their expectations have been met and even their ambitions proved to be ‘conservative’. The figures show Bloodborne sold more than 1 million copies since it was launched, but recent unconfirmed figures show that we are talking about even more copies than that.

However, the title’s success was achieved by having it released in a relatively quiet timeframe in terms of game releases and providing a sizeable demand for users looking for something new to try out.

Once players had a taste for it, word got out and it finally became as big as it is today. But what are your thoughts about it? Do you like Bloodborne? Are you waiting for a sequel or something similar? Let us now!

Twitch Streamer Uses Xbox Rock Band Guitar on Bloodborn

What do you get when you mix a Xbox 360 Rock Band 1 Guitar controller with a PS4 version of Bloodborne? Well, a bit of a headache getting it to work at first, but eventually an epic ‘Guitarborne’ gameplay video, as Twitch streamer bearzly names it.

It looks like the guy really has some crazy ideas up his sleeves, but at the same time, they are most entertaining to watch. Also, the Guitarborne stream is not his first, according to his Twitch profile. He has performed many ‘terrible controllers’ runs of different games, but mostly Dark Souls, as he states he is a huge fan of the Souls series.

Aside from his latest Guitarborne video, he appears to have made a Drum Borne (drum controller), piano controller, one finger, Wiimote & Nunchucks and Bongo Souls (bongo controller) videos. Other videos he has in the planning stages include controllers such as the DDR Pad, Maracas, Katana, N64, SNES, Powerglove and Kinect.

Twitch users can also suggest him other crazy controllers and have him try to make an epic video out of them. At present, the hardest controller he used to play on and stream with is the piano Rock Band 3 controller, experiencing a lot of problems with running straight on the thing. Still, the videos are epic!

Watch some of his videos, including the Guitarborne one, below:

PS4 Exclusive Bloodborne Delayed to March 2015

As for why it was delayed, he explains “We need a few more weeks to deliver you the best possible final experience. We were really grateful for all the player data and feedback we received from those who took part in our recent limited alpha test, and this extra development time will allow us to better integrate these learnings into the game.”
