Despite reports swirling around on the Internet that Max Payne 3 outsold Diablo III in the United Kingdom, a little further investigating reveals that this is not the case at all.
from my understanding console games always outsell PC
99% of the time your right, but this is blizzard were talkin about.
what a stupid way to think "this is blizzard were talkin about",wow so if its Blizzard what???,last time i checked people were buying games,not Blizzard
I wouldn't of thought that tbh
I live in the U.S. and all copies of Diablo 3 are sold out at my local Bestbuy...while there are plenty of copies of Max Payne 3 on the shelves. It's to the point that if you call certain Bestbuy's, before even asking you what your calling about, theres a voice message that says "All Collector's Edition copies of Diablo 3 are sold out".
Uh, yes it did. The report said specifically that digital downloads WERE NOT taken into account and that if they were, Diablo 3 would have easily outsold Max Payne 3. That UK chart shows only retail sales and they stated so in the latest UK chart. So, yes the original report is 100% accurate.
1) Digital downloads weren't included on the list. (Remember those 2 million people who pre-ordered D3?) 2) The list only happens on UK charts alone 3) MP3 = X360 / PS3 while D3 = PC Only. Those three reasons would suggest Diablo easily trounces MP3 in terms of sales in Europe and worldwide per platform division.
