DayZ Sells 1M in One Month

Bohemia Interactive's Dean Hall tweets another sales milestone for DayZ following word last week that the standalone zombie survival/horror game had sold 875K copies in three weeks of early access. Word is the game passed the one million unit milestone within a month: "Well, 1 million copies in 4 weeks. So much for the death of PC Gaming." Thanks Blend Games. Hall also made an interesting comment recently on Twitter: "The best part about DayZ's success, for me, is that I can now make all the games I've always wanted but that everyone said was too niche."

I guess we are solidly in the era of paying $30 for beta access (they say the beta period still has a year to go before the game is ready).

I want this company to survive and do well, but this should cost about $15. As long as people pay for alpha/beta/ideas for games that don't exist, we will be trapped in that ideal.

We have transitioned from the gamer who was exotic/cutting edge/elite (the early days of gaming, where you built your P/C and games pushed the envelope for computer design) to the console generation.

I think it is a "dumber" generation that seems to accept almost anything pushed out there, from buggy games to insane prices, to 8 year old hardware. They don't realize they have real power to shape the face of gaming based on how they spend their money.
