Dead Island Ships 1M in North America, Approaches 2M Worldwide

IndustryGamers has word from publisher Deep Silver that Dead Island shipments in North America have passed the one million mark in less than a week, and they expect Techland's new zombie game's shipments to surpass two million units worldwide by the end of the week. "We’re thrilled at the retail reception Dead Island has achieved in its first few days," said Geoff Mulligan, Chief Operating Officer at Deep Silver, "The critical ‘first week’ of game sales has been an enormous sales success for Deep Silver. We’re working quickly with our distribution partner in North America, Square Enix, to restock shelves as quickly as we can." Update: Clarified these reported numbers reflect shipments, not sales.

This is starting to remind me of the 360.

Problems out the ass yet it still sells.

Makes me ashamed to be associated with these people.

Except for the part where it got fixed up reasonably quickly and "ashamed to be associated with these people", really? Wow I thought I took this stuff too seriously, you're in a whole other universe there.
The 360 issues were fixed up reasonably quickly? I know people who had to fight with MS to get their systems replaced in the beginning only to get more bum systems. One of them went through 4. Hardly respectable.

Dead Island is the same way. Still need to hack up files to fix or change options that should be in the menu's.
