Diablo III Tops U.S. Charts

The Seattle Times has the NPD's latest U.S. sales figures, showing game sales fell 28% in May (to $516.5 million), with hardware sales down 39% from 2011 ($138.9 million). The good news is this does not include digital sales, downloads, and microtransactions, and they say: "NPD estimates that digital sales were around $420 million, which would boost overall U.S. game spending to $1.17 billion." They also have a sales chart showing Diablo III at number one, and say: "A bright spot was PC game sales, which rose 230 percent, driven by the release of 'Diablo III.' It was the top-selling game in May, the first time a PC game topped the charts since July 2010, NPD said in its release."

As an aside for D3, game is now fully cracked with the use of a server emulator. Anyone using the piracy excuse to justify the always online requirement can now stuff it.
I wouldn't say it's been fully cracked. From what I've read, the server emulator is buggy as all hell and still pretty much unplayable. Unless there's been major improvement in the past few days. I'm just wondering if the guys doing the emulator can fix the game to be better than the real one
