Cataclysm Sells 3.3m in 24 Hours

Blizzard announces sales figures for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, saying the third expansion for their MMORPG sold through more than 3.3 million copies during its first 24 hours of availability. They say this makes the add-on the fastest-selling PC game of all time (including digital pre-sales), "based on internal company records and reports from key distribution partners." They say: "This milestone eclipses the previous record of more than 2.8 million copies sold in 24 hours, set in November 2008 by Blizzard’s second World of Warcraft expansion, Wrath of the Lich King." On a semi-related note, the new UK game sales chart from GFK Chart-Track is online, where Cataclysm is number three in a chart that's still dominated by Call of Duty: Black Ops.

JoeNapalm...why are you so concerned about what others make? Stop focusing on the negative and go after success yourself. Unless you are an alien, I believe anyone can be successful if they have the right mindset. Btw, I am not nerding out on you. I am trying to open your eyes to the truth. I have started my own business and I am my own boss. There is also a flip side of having your own business. You have to get out there and bring the money in because no one will cut you check for just showing up.

Call up your local internet provider and ask them how much it was cost to host for 3million plus people. Once you get that number, let me know if you think running a business is all fun and games.

Well said, TJ.
