Activision/Blizzard announced on Wednesday that it’s new Diablo title has reached platinum status in a matter of one week! With over 3.5 million copies being sold in the first 24 hours of being released it is no wonder why this title has become the fastest PC title EVER! Below is the sales numbers from Irvine’s very own Blizzard Wizard himself!
Blizzard Entertainment, Inc very own Lisa Jensen states:
“As of the first week of the game’s availability, that number had already grown to more than 6.3 million.* The above figures also do not include players in Korean Internet game rooms, where Diablo III has become the top-played game, achieving a record share of more than 39% as of May 22.”
Those are pretty big numbers and will continue to grow over the course of the games life cycle. So did you pick up Diablo III this week? Being a hardcore Diablo gamer I know the wait for this one was long and excruciating but definitely worth the wait. If your still up in arms about the title I have also included a TV promo to help guide you to the sanctuary!
