Dragon's Dogma, a Japanese role-playing game with western sensibilities, seems to be doing just fine in its home country. Much better than fine, as it turns out: Dragon's Dogma has moved 302,000 units on the PS3 in Japan, while the Xbox 360 version has sold 29,000, according to Media Create.
The company notes that Dark Souls, to which Dragon's Dogma has been compared, sold a combined total of 280,000 during its launch week.
