Ships Ahoy - Dead Island; Patch Coming; Steam has an Xbox Build?

The Windows edition of Dead Island is now available in North America, offering Techland's zombie-themed action/RPG. The game is available in stores and also via digital distribution on GamersGate, Impulse, and Steam. Apparently a day-on patch is on the way, Destructoid has word on that along with a lengthy list of changes the patch will include. There's also a thread on the Steam Users' Forums stating the version available on Steam is actually an Xbox 360 build of the game based on header information calling this an "Xbox Live Submission Project Version." Eurogamer has word from Techland that they are looking into this: "Techland is currently investigating this information and we'll do everything we can to make sure everyone can enjoy playing their copy of Dead Island," a spokesperson told them. "Deep Silver is a part of every release process and any further updates will come from the game's publisher."

I don't want to sidetrack this conversation, but I seriously don't get how DX:HR was a great port. I have recently played Witcher 2, Red Faction Armageddon, and a few others all without incident (I don't recall a single crash in Witcher 2), but DX:HR is the buggiest piece of junk I've ever seen. I'm about halfway through and I'm seriously considering dropping it because I just can't enjoy myself when it crashes so much. If I get though 30 minutes without a crash, it's something to celebrate. I WANT to enjoy this game, but crash! Crash! CRASH! ugggg, maybe I'll go watch some TV...
I would definitely look at your setup, as the game is rock solid here - great performance, clearly optimised for PC (DX11 features, etc), no obvious gameplay bugs. The patch notes mention an issue with older drivers, so could that be part of your problem? Your experience does not seem to be representative, as everyone I know that has it has said it runs fine. Don't forget, just because other games don't crash doesn't mean it's not an issue with your system. Is your processor or graphics card overclocked?
