StarCraft II fastest-selling strategy ever

And biggest PC game this year.

StarCraft II has become the fastest-selling strategy game ever.

Blizzard's latest sold more than 1 million copies in 24 hours, and over 1.5 million copies in 48 hours.

That also makes StarCraft II the best selling PC game of 2010 already.

Those numbers are based on "internal company records, public data, and/or reports from key distribution partners".

Blizzard attributed launch success to a simultaneous worldwide launch in 11 different languages on 5 different continents.

Of course, having an incredible product doesn't hurt. How incredible? Eurogamer's just-this-minute-published StarCraft II review can tell you.
