Regardless of how people feel about it, it's sold like hell.

Diablo 3 may have had some post-launch problems, but it has also become the fastest-selling PC game ever.

The game sold 3.5 million copies in its first 24 hours of availability, according to Activision Blizzard's internal records and reports from key distribution partners.
The sales total doesn't include 1.2 million copies given to players who signed up for the World of Warcraft Annual Pass promotion.

6.3 million players had their hands on a copy of Diablo 3 at the end of its first week of availability, so it sold another 1.6 million copies in the six days following launch day.

Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime said: "We're definitely thrilled that so many people around the world were excited to pick up their copy of Diablo 3 and jump in the moment it went live.

"We also regret that our preparations were not enough to ensure everyone had a seamless experience when they did so. I want to reaffirm our commitment to make sure the millions of Diablo 3 players out there have a great experience with the game moving forward, and I also want to thank them for their ongoing support."

For a PC and Mac only game them be some impressive numbers, and I know in the UK at least there was tonnes of stock shortages with most stores running out of copies on Day 1.
