6.3 Million Worldwide Sales for Diablo III

Source: http://fav.me/d1hqfau

In recent news, Diablo III has reached 6.3 million sales since the game's May 15th release date. Blizzard announced that in the first 24 hours of the release alone, 3.5 million copies were sold. Also, through Blizzard's "Annual Pass", 1.2 million bought the game through the pass. To top everything off, an additional 1.6 million copies were sold since the week of the game's launch last Tuesday.

A PC sales record was broken, as Diablo III now holds the record for the fastest selling PC gaming of all time! Although, the mass amounts of people who bought the game were met with various issues regarding the battle.net service, as roughly around 4.7 million users tried to log in.

If you have Diablo III, have you successfully logged in so far? And, tell me if I should get this game, as I heard many good things about it. Also, if you would like to buy the game

  1. Wow, records are being smashed all over the place. I haven't had a chance to play it yet but considering how much time I spent on Diablo 2 back in the good old days, I'm sure I'll give D3 a spin sometime.

  2. Well, that definitely explains their server issues. I'm not a fan of the Diablo series, but I have to give them props for D3.
