Diablo III – Record Breaking Sales
Blizzard said that they sold more than 4.7 million copy’s of the highly anticipated RPG on day one alone, thereby setting the record for the fastest selling PC game in history. It was reported that there were many server slow downs on the games debut day and it seemed that Blizzard was very sorry in their statement:
“We’re definitely thrilled that so many people around the world were excited to pick up their copy of Diablo III and jump in the moment it went live,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We also regret that our preparations were not enough to ensure everyone had a seamless experience when they did so. I want to reaffirm our commitment to make sure the millions of Diablo III players out there have a great experience with the game moving forward, and I also want to thank them for their ongoing support.”
The game is an “Always Online” game even when just playing the single player campaign.
Diablo III is rated M, and is available on Blizzard’s website or wherever video games are sold.
