I’m impressed, D3 has sold 6.3 million copies in approx 1 week. Fark.
RockPaperShotGun reports – Blizzard send word that Diablo III sold 3.5 million copies in the first 24 hours on sale.
The upshot of that was 4.7 million people had the game on day one, and after a week that as grown to 6.3 million.
Launching for 4 million concurrent passionate players is difficult at the best of times andt here was a lot of people angry and ranting about how poor D3’s launch was. To my experience I installed and then was straight in and playing. I don’t play in huge blocks of time, and being an Australian I play at odd times – but I still think they did a darn good job. Even 200,000 people being upset out of 3-4 million is a significant but small proportion.
I’m not even close to completed as yet, and really enjoying it. It is better than the beta now, as the story can unfold without restriction.
