Dead Rising 3 ships 1 million

Dead Rising 3 shipped one million by the end of 2013, and looks on course to chainsaw through Capcom's initial targets. According to figures revealed by the publisher, the Xbox One launch game took total shipments for the zombicial series past the 7 million mark.

As Capcom announced today, Dead Rising 3 smashed the million mark on December 20, 2013, around a month after the Xbox One launched. While shipments don't necessarily translate into sales to consumers, Capcom will be encouraged given the target it set of 1.2 million shipped by the end of March 2014.

Like a well lopped zombie cranium, the news drops neatly alongside the arrival of the game's first DLC, the single-player prequel Operation Broken Eagle. According to Xbox's Larry Hyrb you can grab the DLC now, either for $10 on its own or as part of the $30 season pass that also covers the next three major add-ons.
