Rare sales hit 100 million mark

According to this article on its official site, Rare can now boast 100 million software sales since the company launched in 1985.

"The result of releasing more than 100 titles across systems ranging from NES to Xbox 360 does seem like something worth mentioning, even if a couple of those titles were Taboo and Sesame Street 123 (everyone has to eat, you know)," says the article.

"Recent assistance in achieving the 100 million figure has come from the likes of Perfect Dark Zero (over 1.5m units to date), Kameo: Elements of Power and Viva Piñata (approaching 1m apiece).

"With Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts and two new Viva Piñata titles on Xbox 360 and DS set to launch in the coming months, plus of course all the other intriguing projects further down the line that we're too wicked and calculating to tell you about, we don't anticipate a dramatic sales downturn any time soon. Does that sound a bit pompous? Sorry, us Brits struggle to 'do' PR sometimes.

Congratulations to Rare from all of us at VG247!
