Bandai Namco's fighting game hits new milestone just three weeks after launch.

Bandai Namco's fighting game Dragon Ball Xenoverse has shipped over 1.5 milllion copies worldwide, the publisher announced today. The figure makes sense, given that the game was the second most-sold PlayStation 4 title on the PlayStation Network last month, despite being released on February 24.

On the success of the game, producer Masayuki Hirano said, "I would like to thank everyone for their support on this new challenge. We decided to take a risk and create a completely new concept to entertain our fans and Dragon Ball lovers and we are quite proud of the successful result!"

The first downloadable content pack for Dragon Ball Xenoverse is now available on Steam and the Xbox Market Place, and will be available on the PlayStation Network on March 18. The game's launch wasn't all smooth sailing however, with servers woes causing multiplayer issues early on.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse is not the only game to have breached new milestones as of late. Simulation game Cities: Skylines shifted more than half a million copies a week after it launched, as did Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask.

At first I said screw this game, but after a couple hours of it and I was hooked. Its a pretty solid dbz game that gives up the major flashy super move for fast and intense dbz action! On the lobby the amount of people online in a lobby can be overwhelming to say the least. Best dbz game I've played to date!

Spamming one button for the majority of the time while every character is carbon copies of each other does not mean it's a good game.

I watched Dragonball Z every day after school when I was a kid. As I got older and exposed to more anime, comic books, etc. I realized it wasn't anything special, and in fact kind of tedious and repetitive. And yet it is still ridiculously popular and well regarded, I guess I just don't see the appeal anymore that is, until I watch DBZ: Battle of Gods and guess what, I'm back into DBZ.

I heard lot of great things on Xenoverse for it's customization characters and I seen lots of fans were making female Saiyans which I can understand.

<< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >><< LINK REMOVED >> wow, you are trying too hard to be funny and it's not working. Also, battle of gods was a failure, it lacked story, pointless characters except for goku, lacked character development for every character, especially vegeta, and again ridiculous story and the dbz universe and rules within it were out of place completely.

I am not a fan of fighting games but i checked it out because of the dragon ball theme from my childhood (like many others) and maybe its not goty game but its a good game, and if you dont like it, its doesnt mean its a bad game, just not your style. If you want a list of games that can be called bad games without a doubt honestly go check the low scores on gamespot ( by low i mean below 5, yes there are many games on that range as well which people dont take into consideration) and then compare...
I had to write this because the young folks keep calling those games "shit" etc.. and those games had alot of effort put into them, i am fine with naming on bad products but this one just aint it.

It has some bad design choices and two layers of RNG mechanics in almost everything, but damn it's so fun to play it, I spent a lot of time on it and I'm still playing it, tweaking my characters and stuff. And it could have been easily a great game but sadly I'm sure it won't get many improvements, best case they will make another game in like 5 years then patch the current one cuz this is the trend nowadays.

That sure helps those overworked servers.....


To be fair they did improve the stability and overall state but it's still far from good. Random disconnects and not being able to get to the multi-lobby are still a daily thing.

Also considering the fact that the newly released DLC is way overpriced for what little content it delivers and was also falsely advertised to deliver more content than wthat we really ended up with I'd say they are doing a piss poor job to cater to their customers.
