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.

The public says they don't like them but sales show they can't get enough of crappy ports.

Yea, I guess we all forgot to look in our crystal balls to find out before the release just how buggy it was going to be and that they would accidentally release the wrong build launch night.
