  • Dead Island has shipped 3 million copies since September 2011
  • 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.

This is great news, I love this game.
I really don't think they were supposed to be Aussie voices.
Some were Kiwi, and some kinda sounded like South Africans.
I was actually just talking to one of the guys (@M4cr0bat) who I did the campaign with on our live stream. It was a hell of a ride, but I've never touched it since. I'd happily play a sequel however, and with sales like that I think we'll see one.
