When we say big we really mean it. Before we plunge into the numbers lets dive into history tell you something exciting. StarCraft I took over one year to sell around 1.5 million copies since its launch. The game was a hit but took speed slowly in the market once critics as well as the users started to fall in love with it. The StarCraft madness took over the public but it didn’t set any happening records. On the other hand StarCraft II has sold 1.5 million copies in just 48 hours! So will you call this just a hit? We would call it a world record.
Yes, Starcraft 2, the game by Blizzard that I was looking forward to so much has been delayed. Here’s what they had to say…
The original Starcraft was built on a 2D engine, in spite of the competition having largely switched over to 3D engines. The savings in processing were applied to larger, more epic battles with dozens of units being rendered on the screen at the same time.
Meanwhile, we wait, not sure until when though, but for now check out these screenshots, they’ll keep you addicted!
