Diablo III Puts up the Numbers, Sells 6.3 Million Copies in First Week

You all know that PC gaming is dead right? Well tell that to the 6.3 Million people who bought Diablo III in the first week with 3.5 Million being sold in the first 24 hours! Not bad for a game that’s seeped in controversy regarding the always-online requirement, not to mention the server errors at launch and other various small problems along the way.

It just goes to show that the vocal majority isn’t always the overall majority and as usual the numbers speak for themselves. Now if you’ll excuse me I need to go level my Monk up some more.
