    I am fairly certain the 30 million firgure includes the base game as well as RoS and all versions for various consoles. In this manner you can put me down for 2 copies - collector's edition for both D3 vanilla and RoS. How many units have you bought?

    I have 2 copy of D3 and 1 RoS. I got the WoW pass but also bought a copy. I wonder how many of that number was through the free WoW pass?

    I've never played D3. I think it's given me a fresh perspective on moderating a forum dedicated to the game. In a related note, I'm available to offer free advice on how to fly a plane, if anyone's interested.

    If I recall correctly the WoW give away did not count towards sales figures.

    That's a lot! Bobby Kotick loves you ;)

    Meanwhile an artile over at Forbes.com claims Blizzard had confirmed the 30 miillion does include RoS and all console versions.

    The article also reports that D3 is now the10th best selling video game off all time on Wikipedia. The writer does note that sales figures are not as black and white as one might think. Interesting read!

    I bought D3 (but not CE, since I didn't order it in advance and no nearby stores had it on launch day) but didn't buy RoS. Nice perk of attending the RoS launch party; they gave us all RoSCE copies we get signed right there. Hope that happens again for D3X2!

    I was laughing at all you fools, but then I realized I have the PS3 version, the PS4 (UE edition), and the base game+RoS for the PC. Well played, Blizzard.

    LOL, thats funny.

    Any predictions for D4 in terms of sales? More or less than D3? I bought D3 because of D2. Did you? I believe that fewer people will buy D4 because of D3. Thoughts?

    2 copies each of base game and RoS for PC; one copy of Xbox One UEE. So put me down for 5 (so far).

    Just the vanilla Diablo 3 and the Reaper of Souls expansion (PC, I only have a PS2).

    I'd guess less sales as well unless they do something completely revolutionary, otherwise they'll just go the way of WoW, just slapping up another coat of paint.

    I am not too sure about that. The RMAH was revolutionary but it was universally loathed. Many other changes made to D2's mechanics were not well received. A lot of fans really wanted D3 to be D2 with better graphics, a new coat of paint as you put it.

    D4 may sell 50 million copies on release day in 2030 thanks to gamers' nostalgia for D3 ;)
