Ever since the launch date, Diablo 3 has been a hot shelf item in any game store across the globe. Proof of which is that the game broke sales record and has become the fastest selling pc game.
Within the first 24 hour on the release date of Diablo 3, the title has sold more than 3.5 million copies. By the end of the week, the said amount reached 6.4 million and the said values as stated by Blizzard do not include the digital purchase of the game in Korea Internet gaming kiosks wherein Diablo 3 was the top-rated game in an instant.
To me this is just too obvious. I mean, we waited for years and years and Blizzard teased us right down to the bone-marrow. Of course anyone would want to play it especially with 3 guest passes that have not failed to entice any PC gamer out in the woods.
Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment has a few words to say about the said phenomena.
“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”.
“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.”
