Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe Nears 2M ShippedS

Midway shipped more than 1.8 million copies of Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe worldwide for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, the company announced today.

And the people who have purchased the game for the Playstation 3 (no number there) have played more than 3.6 million matches online, according to GameSpy tech, which hosts the games.

"Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe was the result of countless hours of hard work by many people, and seeing the game surpass the million-seller plateau makes it worth all the effort," said Ed Boon, Mortal Kombat co-founder and creative director, Midway. "We're already hard at work on our next version of Mortal Kombat, and look forward to being able to reveal more details in the future."

By January of 2007, Mortal Kombat: Armageddon had shipped just 1 million copies. Of course, shipped isn't sold, but apples to apples, that's not bad.
