Diablo III Becomes the Fastest Selling PC Game in History

According to The Verge, "'Diablo 3' becomes fastest selling PC game in history"

In the first 24 hours of release, Diablo 3 sold more than 3.5 million copies setting a new record for PC games sales and that excludes the 1 million+ people who signed up for the World of Warcraft annual pass + Diablo III promotion.

Co-founder and CEO of Blizzard Entertainment, Mike Morhaime said: "We're definitely thrilled that so many people around the world were excited to pick up their copy of Diablo 3 and jump in the moment it went live,".

He added, "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 3 players out there have a great experience with the game moving forward, and I also want to thank them for their ongoing support."
