More On StarCraft II Sales

IndustryGamers has another tidbit on the hot sales of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty since the launch of the real-time strategy sequel. They cite NPD statistics showing that the game not only topped all game sales, but all software sales, saying: "The all categories software PC chart sent to IndustryGamers by NPD reveals that StarCraft II dominated the PC industry for the month, ahead of eight-dollar software like Kaspersky Antivirus 2010, Webroot Antivirus with Spy Sweeper and big name, more expensive software like MS Office. The $100 collector's edition of StarCraft II also placed sixth on the all categories PC chart."

Given the Blizzard name, the ratings and the advertising I have to say 1.5 million during the first 48 hours wasn't especially many copies. So I'd really be interested in sales numbers afterward.

I didn't buy the game, but did played the beta. I still prefer old Command & Conquer (C&C) games (not Red Alert 3 (RA3) and C&C4).

They were trying to give us the numbers but when they were trying to add all the $ the calculator blew up.
