In a post from Thatgamecompany’s Creative Director Jenova Chen on the Playstation Blog, it appears that Journey is now the fastest selling game on the Playstation Network Store.
“Journey has officially brokenPlayStation Network and PlayStation Store sales records, surpassing all first and third-party games to become the fastest-selling game ever released in the SCEA region on the PlayStation Network.”
It seems, just like when they released Flower, they are getting an overwhelmingly positive response from fans all across the world – indeed just a glance at their Twitter account shows the numerous submissions of fan art and messages of love sent by fans.
This is completely understandable though a Journey is just an absolutely sublime piece of work – so much so it gained a stunning 5/5 from us in our review.
It also appears that Thatgamecompany will be releasing the games soundtrack – composed by Austin Wintory – on PS Store and iTunes on April 10th, as well as a limited CD release.
“A lot of you have seemed to really enjoy the music in the game, which was composed by Austin Wintory. And we’ve received a lot of requests to release the soundtrack of the game. Well, I’m happy to announce that the soundtrack will be hitting the PS Store and iTunes on April 10, and there will be a limited CD release in the near future as well.”
