More StarCraft II Sales Figures

With StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty sitting atop the UK multi-format sales charts, the first PC-only title to top that list so far this year, MCV points out that Blizzard's real-time strategy sequel has sold more copies in the UK in five days that the original StarCraft has sold over its 12-year lifespan. This is all the more impressive when knowing this is purely based on physical copies, and does not account for digital distribution.

Steam seems to be the de facto standard for DD, but I think that as publishers start to put in place their competing systems, there will be increased pressure to separate Valve from Steam, to avoid any conflict of interest. These companies are giving money to their competition, and if Valve was doing more full-blown publishing rather than putting out a game every 18 months (and only entering the console market recently), this would probably have happened already. It may still be a smart move, although I don't know how interconnected their teams and business structure are.

Also, SC2 is pretty awesome. It's got more polish than the Turtle Wax factory, and my console-playing friends are just blown away by all the visuals, but the character models in particular. After years of staring at shiny shrink-wrapped Unreal engine faces, I'm inclined to agree.
