Kane & Lynch Sales Top One Million

It's been a difficult year for Eidos parent company SCi, but it appears as though the company finally has something to celebrate: IO Interactive's Kane & Lynch: Dead Men (PC, PS3, X360) has sold over a million copies since its launch in mid-November, according to Next Gen.

Though rooted in a great deal of controversy, Kane & Lynch's commercial success is clearly the result of the hearty endorsement of the game in a Shackblog editorial by Steve Gaynor. As professional movers and shakers of the gaming industry, Shacknews is no stranger to shifting the commercial fate of even the most dismally rated games.
