Starcraft II Sales

Photobucket

The official sales numbers are in following the initial million (1,000,000) sales on day one; Starcraft II sold over three million (3,000,000) copies in the first month. Looks like Bobby Kotick and Activision-Blizzard will be sleeping on a bed of $100 bills tonight.

Are you displeased with the $60 price of Starcraft II? Was the game worth it if you bought it? Let us know in the comments!

  3. Hardly, It's a cool game, but nothing that i couldn't do in its prequel.

    Improved graphics are not that important for a RTS in my book.

  4. Its a good game and worth it if you think about how much gameplay there is compared to most other games released at the moment. Online play will keep you going for ages

  7. I don't think that a lot of players were disapointed about the price because a lot of them were waiting for Starcraft II since a lot of time. (It's difficult for me to give a objective opinion because I am not very aware about the Starcraft serie...)

  11. The game is not worth it unless you are into the multiplayer aspect of the game. However activision does benefit from the profits of blizzard games since they joined together, starcraft has nothing to do with activision. It is entirely a blizzard game and every decision about the game was decided by blizzard. Whether or not that is good or bad is up to you because that could just mean that blizzard is making poor decisions now.

  29. I think $60 is a little steep for a video game.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think it was worth it for these reasons.


    1. Great Single player which you be playing multiple times to get all the achievements.

    2. Achievements that make game play even more fun by adding a "gotta catch them all" feel, a more competative outside the game.

    3. Sweet icons online to show your Status

    4. Custom maps made by other players which can be played online or with a PC

    5. The game

  31. 60$ is a sum but for WC2 it's worth it.

  32. bought the game and it's not worth it! i want my money back!

  33. A lot of people were hyped up for SC2 for a couple of years waiting for its release. A million sales on first day is impressive; I wonder how many Diablo 3 will have.
