Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty Becomes the Biggest PC Game Launch of the Year

Starcraft Starcraft Starcraft. This is basically what you are hearing all over the internet. So much rave, so much hype over an RTS called Starcraft 2. Why? You ask. Why is this game so big. It is so big because it is one of the most anticipated, most well done, most taken care of games in the history of the universe. And all this hype has resulted in Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty to be the best selling RTS and the biggest PC launch of the year. Find out why after the jump.

You could say that there has not really been much PC launches that were extraordinary, so that’s why SC2 has been named the best. Personally, I think it would have won even if Halo 16 came out of PC. In a recent investors release, Activision announced that SC2 sold 1.5 million copies in the first 48 hours! The worlds fastest selling, nor only RTS but, strategy game of all time. More than 8000 stores opened up for a midnight release, now that is a bunch of nerds and geeks packed in one little Gamestop. A few other things mentioned in the investor’s release was: Gamestop had over 3000 stores open for midnight release. And SC2 is oficially Gamestop’s fastest selling PC game since Blizzard’s WOW: The Wrath of the Lich King.
