Despite the skepticism when Left 4 Dead 2 was announced at E3, gamers flooded to their wallets like a brain-hungry horde to purchase Left 4 Dead 2. Valve announced today the zombie sequel has sold more than two million copies in its first two weeks of release.
At last count, Left 4 Dead, developed by Valve and published by Electronic Arts, had sold more than 3 million copies. Both games were published on Xbox 360 and the PC. Based on the sales data so far, it's looking like the sequel is actually on track to surpass the original.
According to Valve, more than a million players have logged into Xbox Live to play online and promised news on the first wave of downloadable content for Left 4 Dead 2 is "coming very soon."
I liked Left 4 Dead 2 quite a bit. With the game in the hands of everyone now, however, I really need to hop online and see what amazing strategies people have devised to make my life a living hell.
