Blizzard has announced that pristine PC and Mac game StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty sold three million copies worldwide during its first month on sale.

That accolade adds to those already announced: that SCII is the fastest-selling real-time strategy game ever, and the best-selling PC game so far this year.

To achieve this, Blizzard launched simultaneously in North America, Europe, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines and the regions of Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau.
