Yes, Diablo III sold like gangbusters

So  how much did Diablo III sell in 24 hours? How about 3.5 million copies? That's a demon load of copies moved in 24 hours for a PC only game. For the first week, a total of 6.3 million copies were in the hands of nephalems.

Now, this doesn't come close to say Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which sold 6.5 million copies in 24 hours, but the feat by Diablo III is pretty impressive nevertheless.

I've already ran through the normal level of the game and have enjoyed it. We'll have to see how my second run though as Nightmare level holds up, as thats what set Diablo II apart. The need to keep coming back for loot and kills was really great with Diablo II, and I hope it continues with Diablo III
