Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Ships 1 Million

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is the first 'Vania to make a successful jump into 3D space. It's also the first non-DS entry in the series to get any kind of critical acclaim in a while- I'm actually still playing through the game, moving at a snails pace, but it is a quite enjoyable time.

Now Lords has another milestone in it's scabbard: it's shipped a million copies across Europe and the US. And to celebrate this feat, Konami has announced that the PS3 version has been patched and the 360 will be coming along shortly.

The patch covers some save game issues and add a few minor visual flourishes- nothing major.
KONAMI today announced that a patch for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is now available on PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. The patch will help resolve the "save game" issues related to user interaction with controller buttons (PlayStation button and SELECT), or disconnection of the controller while the auto-save icon is on-screen. The patch will also offer cosmetic upgrades such as ability for the loading screen text to scroll improving user readability. KONAMI will be sending details for a new patch for the Xbox 360® version of the game shortly.
 So if there was anyone out there who was waiting for the band-aid before plunging back into the world of the undead...
