#1 PC game of 2012, 12 million copies sold worldwide.

Pretty good for a dying game. See you all at the expac!
I'm having fun.

I can't wait to get home from work each day to play, even if I only play for an hour or two (it's usually longer).

That's all a game requires for me to feel it's "successful". I don't care how well it sold, I don't care how much money its publisher made (or makes).

Is Diablo 3 fun? For me, yes.

Thus, it's a success.
Sales figures are nice and all, but I want to see exactly how much they're making from the RMAH.

Memory's a bit hazy, but I think it was like 6 million. ~3 million the first week.

I didn't find anything about 12 million, but back in November, they topped 10 million, so it's entirely feasible. http://www.computerandvideogames.com/377434/diablo-3-tops-10-million-sales/

ignorance is bliss.

People bought diablo 3 out of blind faith because diablo 2 was good

Diablo 3 would not be anywhere near 12 million if it was marketed as a different title
Now, does that statistic include banned or returned copies? Just curious to see how accurate it is. I mean a certain percentage of banned copies were botters who of course bought more copies. Several claimed they returned the game, I don't know how wide spread that was.
12 million copies sold due to good marketing, a good reputation and the success of the previous game. In sales, its a great success. But i doubt the amount of players still playing is looking too awesome.

Most of all this launch reminded me of SW:TOR and we all know how that turned out. The defenders screaming out and protecting the game, player numbers were not dwindling, game was doing great. And support? wtf is that?
Yus.

Gratz Blizzard! Easily my overall GOTY 2012!

The forums certainly don't reflect it but this is a great game.
Game still sucks!!
Just goes to show the remarkable short-term financial success you can acieve when you take the fun out of making games. Congratz Bob K
