I am curious to know how many 'non-sales' of Torchlight 2 there currently are.

You know, those very same things that Ubi-Soft, EA and other DRM-snorting Sara-Lee snacking vampires bemoan more greedily than Gollum did about his precious.

Kudos, Runic, I love the soundtrack and pets.

Also there's a chunk of the market out there that looks down on anything that comes out under $50, as if it were for the Hoi polloi only (which they themselves of course aren't

Their loss, great game, good replay value, lots of mods now too. Troll haters can suck it down

Cheap, fun, temporary game.

Horrible longevity, don't even try.
Sounds like a description of D3 to me.

Except D3 was expensive and not fun
It was quite expensive. But it was actually fun... for like the first playthrough on normal, and when decent gear for low levels was cheap in the auction house. And when they try to suck you in with that explosion of yellow drops from bosses on the first time you kill them with the forced boosted drop rates for first time kills.
After that, ugh it got boring fast, and the crappy drop rates started to sink in, and the auction house got to be boring fast (unless you wanted to waste real money on it), and then blizzard went and raised repair costs by 6 times forcing one to farm for gold as well as farming for items.

And Torchlight got plenty of notoriety among the arpg crowd years ago.

Yeah pretty interesting it can only sell one million at a 3rd D3's cost.

A million units for something without the brand or marketing power of Blizzard is pretty incredible. Torchlight isn't exactly a household name in entertainment.

Congrats to them! Glad that a small company trying to right by pc gamers is having such good success! I really enjoy playing it and appreciate that I can do coop over Steam with my nephew or play SP offline by myself. I will keep on supporting whatever Runic does.

They deserve to sell 3x as many copies as Diablo 3 for making a better game at 1/3 the pricetag.

This x3

It hasn't been on deep sales until today either, so they likely made around 15 million. Good for them. Not my kind of game but I respect it.

Good game! I hope it made them lots of $$$. Now, where is the expansion? What's the release date for TL3? C'mooooon, I need my fix!  
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.
