Insanity. Did not expect so many sales so quickly.

It will keep selling, too. The price is low and the game is fun as hell.



I was expecting 1m through the end of December, far exceeded my expectations by doing 1m in 48 hours. Truly a hugely popular game.



«Console launch exclusive»

So all that «Only on Xbox» was a lie?

what else could it be, the game isn't released yet.  Also on the box in the post above it says console exclusive which could mean only the Preview Edition but you know how marketing loves to twist things to their advantage.
