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.

        The vast majority of gamers do not read reviews or are aware of the critical reception. This is why the Shack never properly reflects the gaming mainstream. The quality of games are debated endlessly in the comments but in the end, it doesn't matter. The average kid doesn't look at Remo's reviews; he sees the big flashy television ads or sees the game that features his favorite sport.
