We knew it would happen, but it won't stop Blizzard from gloating. StarCraft II has become the fastest selling RTS of all time, and is currently the fastest selling PC title of 2010. Day one sales of the game put it in more than one million consumers' hands within the first 24 hours of release worldwide, with 1.5 million pushed out the door within 48 hours.
"We launched StarCraft II in 11 different languages and on 5 different continents because we wanted to make sure as many players as possible were able to log on and play on day one," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment (via press release). "We're pleased that so many people around the world have already picked up a copy of the game, and we look forward to welcoming even more players to Battle.net in the weeks and months ahead."
Just once I wish a post-release press release said something like "told ya so" or "we're number one, you're number two!" For more StarCraft II on AusGamers, click here
