Diablo III Breaks PC Sales Records
Connection errors didn't seem to deter a lot of people.
05.24.12 - 12:21 AM

Considering how highly anticipated the game was, it shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that last week's release of Activision-Blizzard's Diablo III broke PC sales records of all kinds. At the end of day one, the game already had more than 4.7 million subscribers, and 6.3 million in its first week of being on sale. Retailers such as Amazon and GameStop also saw record sales.

(Naturally, with the game being so popular on day one, Diablo III wasn't without its connection and other server problems.. which still seem to exist somewhat, but not quite as bad as they were on day one.)

Diablo III is available now on PC and Mac for $59.99 US, although players in a few countries, such as parts of Latin America and Russia, won't be able to purchase the game until June 7th. Check back soon with RPGFan for a review!
