State of Decay, the open-world zombie survival adventure from Undead Labs, has sold more than 500,000 copies on XBLA, as Microsoft announced yesterday. This makes the game the platform's fastest-selling original game in the Xbox 360's near-8-year history (the only faster seller, Minecraft, was an adaptation of a PC game).
When asked about the success of State of Decay, Undead Studios founder Jeff Strain stated “We're thrilled and humbled that gamers are embracing the game. Record breaking sales are great, but the thing we're proudest of is that people who bought the game are having a great time playing it. That's why we do what we do, and what keeps us going back in to do it again.”
As for the future of State of Decay, Strain hinted at some interesting features, saying “There's an incredibly sophisticated simulation engine driving the world of "State of Decay" — we call it FateEngine — and it gives us a platform to do much more with the game. For a start, I can tell you we're working on a sandbox mode designed to be a pure survival simulation.”
The developer will also be dropping the first title update for State of Decay this weekend, with the second already well on its way.http://www.oxmonline.com/state-decay...00-copies-xbla

They are in on going talks with MS to do a State Of Decay MMO!!"We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"

I have it downloaded but haven't played it yet
I wonder how the MMO will compare to Day Z?

My son bought it and he loves it. Says its a great game.
Played this for about an hour last night, very fun.
I have been playing it for about 4 days or so and I'm really enjoying it. I have heard complaints about the game but you need to enjoy it for what it is. It's not Left4Dead or Dead Rising. It's an RPG first.
Very nice numbers.
uuummmmm...Fried Beer iis a reality.
