Armored Core V Sold Through 90% Of Its First Shipment Upon Release


    As reported earlier in the week, Armored Core V was quite the success story in Japan for From Software. The game sold close to 164,000 copies on the PlayStation 3 in its first week on store shelves.


    That’s about 5 times the amount Armored Core IV on PlayStation 3 sold in its own opening week in 2006, and over twice the amount Armored Core: For Answer sold across PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in it first week in 2008. 


    On Xbox 360, Armored Core V sold another 24,700 copies in its first week. 


    Media-Create weigh in as usual with their weekly supplementary information, and say that Armored Core V sold through 90% of its first shipment across both platforms. That is undoubtedly a resounding success.
