Who’s surprised by this news? 6.3 million units sold already and the month isn’t done yet. I did my part and ordered two copies (one for my brother).
I’ve been trying to play more Diablo III. Not because I really enjoy it, but so I can give it a fair shake. The Diablo III beta didn’t ignite a craving for loot that most fans of this game, franchise or sub-genre have.
I can see why it sold so many units — it’s ridiculously polished when the servers are up and running — but it takes a lot more than just loot lust to keep me playing a game so I hope Act II and beyond kick it into high gear.
