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.

I think that Indies may throw a spanner at these plans, Indies are right now the wild card. Whether or not they become a force in the industry however is a guess, it'll depend if more people buy more Indie games and less mainstream ones.

To be honest, if the industry all went Indie, with only Indie developers and no publishers, I for one would love to see that.

With digital distribution systems like steam and battle.net indie developers are going to have a tough time getting noticed. With so much of a gamers time being forced behind these walls it's going to be harder than ever for most indie projects to get a gamers attention. (unless they pay these services to advertise them, which is basically paying your competition...)

I think it's exactly because of the rise of digital distribution systems that Indies may triumph, because it's easy for them to put a game on sale and get it noticed. Example: Steam. They often publicize a lot of Indie games on the front page.

If there weren't so many digital distribution systems I don't think Indies would even stand a chance.
