Dead Space sales top 1.4 million globally

Electronic Arts has announced that critically acclaimed Survival Horror outing Dead Space has sold roughly 1.4 million copies worldwide since its launch in October 2008.

Speaking to Gamespot, Glen Schofield, vice president of EA and Visceral Games general manager, commented, "I'm happy with that, based on the economy," adding, Last year could've been one of the greatest launch years in the history of video games around October time, but it was a year where people bought less games than they normally would."

Schofield conceded that while he would have liked the game to sell abit more, the fact the game was met rapturous applause by the gaming press and received numerous awards more than made up for it.

"Do I wish it sold more? Absolutely," he said. "But the critical acclaim and the number of awards - we're at 75 and counting now - have made [Dead Space] bigger than just the number of sales. If you look at used sales and rentals, we're looking at probably 3 or 4 million people who have played the game."
