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.
