The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

Diablo III Breaks PC Pre-Order Records For Amazon and Blizzard

Posted on Thursday, May 10 @ 19:19:55 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

When Blizzard Entertainment has a new game coming out you can bet your house on it selling like water during a dry summer. Even with that in mind, few would have guessed just how many Diablo III pre-orders there are.

GameSpot has been told by a representative at Amazon that Diablo III is now the most pre-ordered PC game in their 18-year history beating out games such as World of Warcraft—including its over 9,000 expansions—Battlefield 3, StarCraft II, and all of the other PC gaming juggernauts. This has come on the heels of the announcement that it is also the most pre-ordered game in Blizzard's history, a fact that was announced during Activision Blizzard's quartery earnings report.

What makes this announcement so meaningful is that this isn't another mainstream FPS game that inheritably picks up over a million pre-orders merely by existing, this is a deep action role-playing game with classic roots. Granted, Blizzard has a prolific fan base, but Diablo and Diablo II are considered by many to be hardcore games that have a more niche market than Blizzard's other IPs. That said, Diablo III is one badass game, and if there's one thing I've learned about games and sales it's that word of mouth is everything, and the recent beta was met with a lot of praise.

Are you as excited as I am for this game? No? Don't worry, it'll come to consoles soon. Heck, your PC might even be able to play it. Check out our latest guide to see if your specs can run this demonic beast.
