It should come as no surprise that Starcraft 2 sold extremely well upon release. With a loyal fan base of one of the most highly acclaimed RTS games ever, and a 12 year wait since the original, it was guaranteed to be a hit. Within the first 48 hours, the game sold 1.5 million copies, with 1 million being sold on release day. The game was released worldwide in 11 different languages. It was the fastest selling PC game since World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King at GameStop. The game is available for both PC and Mac, and should sell plenty more copies before the year is over.

Hmm imagine if this is the fastest selling strategy game ever then D3 will probably be the fastest selling RPG ever.
