Blizzard says StarCraft II broke all records

Written by Nick Farell

And joysticks
Blizzard Entertainment has released sales information for StarCraft II: Wings Of Liberty and you probably would not be surprised to discover that it is breaking most records.

Blizzard told us that it sold one million copies on PC and Mac in its first day of sale, and over 1.5 million within 48 hours. This makes it the biggest PC launch of the year and the fastest-selling strategy game of all time.

The game was launched in 11 different languages and on five different continents because Blizzard wanted to make sure as many players as possible were able to log on and play on day one.

The game community is positively buzzing about the thing. Apparently releasing it in the middle of summer when players should be out on a beach somewhere didn't hurt one bit.

Got the game myself and it simply rocks, it's finished... and there aren't a lot of games which feel as they're completely finished @ release...

To be honest I am a little suprised, looks like all of the rumours of (it will sell millions day one in South Korea) were wrong. It's still very good news though.
Hopefully we will see an upsurge in rts (proper rts) being released.
People like EA and relic must surely look at the original dow and C&C3 and see why they were far more popular than the watered down successors.
*prays for dow3* (dow1 with better graphics :)

I guess now people will stop complaining its only "a third of the game". as I said before it has just as many missions in SP, so the quality is much better focusing on one race each. It's a good game.

I'm still waiting for it to drop the price, but I guess I'll be waiting til next year because it's so dang popular.
