- Most of those copies have actually been sold to consumers
- GameSpot report Dead Island as one of their best sellers for July-Sept quarter
Dead Island was met with mixed responses from gamers and critics alike. Despite the wishy-washy feeling of most people, Game Informer has announced that the survival horror RPG has shipped 3 million units since September this year.
According to Deep Silver, most of those 3 million copies have actually been sold to consumers.
As a policy, we actively work with retail to maintain stock levels so that we aren't flooding the market with product just to claim high sell-in numbers," - Deep Silver Representative
Dead Island proved to be a fast mover from launch date; many stores across Australia were sold out after the first week. GameSpot in the US also reported that it was one of the best selling games during the July-September quarter.
Not bad for a game that had the worst Australian accents ever. Check out MMGN's review if you missed out on this fun title.
