Anticipation for Diablo 3
is at its peak right now, with fans feverishly wringing their hands as they wait until launch on May 15. Just look at this one guy's computer
– no joke! That anticipation translates into a lot of pre-orders; however, not all of those pre-orders are through Blizzard's Battle.net service. Amazon
is apparently another popular pre-purchase destination.
A representative for Amazon told Joystiq that Diablo 3
is Amazon's most pre-ordered PC title ever. "Today, it became the most pre-ordered PC game of all-time on Amazon.com – even exceeding pre-orders for Blizzard's own StarCraft II
and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm
," the rep said.
It's been a pretty good month for pre-orders on Amazon. Earlier this month, day-one pre-orders for Black Ops 2
managed to top pre-orders for the first Black Ops
and even last year's Modern Warfare 3
