Obviously, the prospect of pulling off dozens of virtual heists is appealing to a great many people.
According to developer Starbreeze (as cited by PlayStation LifeStyle ), the recently released Payday 2 has sold. 1.58 million copies worldwide in just its first month of availability. 80% of those copies were sold digitally, and the title has topped the monthly PSN charts in Europe (it was in the #2 slot in North America).
This is after we learned that the game had actually turned a profit before it even went up for sale. Starbreeze CEO Bo Andresson-Klint confirmed back in August that the pre-orders alone allowed the developer to turn a profit, so the rest is just gravy. As for the future, we know a bunch of downloadable content is headed our way soon, including five total DLC packs. The first one will be called Armored Transport, but we don't have any specific details at this time.
Have you had your payday yet?
