MK: Armageddon sells a million

Midway's gory fighter hits 1 million shipped across both PS2, Xbox; Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks also hits milestone.


Ripping heads off torsos and dismembering bodies may not make good substitutes for parenting, but it sure does sell a lot of games. Midway Games today announced that Mortal Kombat: Armageddon has shipped 1 million units worldwide.

The game was released in October on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox and is allegedly the final Mortal Kombat game for current-generation consoles. The finale packed in dozens of characters from previous MK games and was met with generally positive reviews. The game is also headed to the Wii in April.

Midway also revealed that the 2005 game Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks has also shipped more than 1 million units. Shaolin Monks was released on the Xbox and PS2.
