Sega has revealed that Platinum Games' Vanquish has managed to sell 820,000 units since it was launched towards the end of 2010. Figures which were below their estimates, according to a statement.

Vanquish was Sega's second biggest selling title of the fiscal year, behind Sonic Colours, and Sega blamed the slow sales on "sluggish personal consumption."

Vanquish should top one million sales at some point, and it would certainly be deserved. We reviewed the game last year and it received a 9/10. It was also nominated in our Game of the Year awards.
