PC Diablo III Sales Boosted by $19.99 Sale
The pre-orders for the 'Ultimate Evil Edition' are also ramping up
A sale on the price of the base PC version of Diablo III has boosted its sales, and it is once again the #1 best-selling PC game on Amazon.com. The upcoming console Ultimate Evil Edition is also being pre-ordered at a solid rate on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. Here is a look at how the game is faring across the platforms.
The release of the base Diablo III game was a solid hit on the PS3 and Xbox 360, when it came out last year. We will see if the Ultimate Evil Edition can surpass that, when it arrives in a few weeks across all four consoles.
- The Diablo III on PC base game is on sale for $19.99, and that has propelled it back to the top of the sales charts. It's a great time to get a friend started playing the game, or if you want to try out multiboxing in Diablo III, as recently discussed by developer Travis Day.
- Gamers on the PlayStation 4 are looking forward to the Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition (UEE) release on August 19. The PlayStation 4 UEE pre-order is currently ranked #7 on Amazon's list of PlayStation 4 games.
- The pre-sales for the UEE on the Xbox One aren't quite as big; it is at #18 in the Xbox One game sales list.
- The Ultimate Evil Edition pre-sales have been slower for the last-generation consoles. The PS3 UEE is currently at #61 on the PlayStation 3 games charts, while the Xbox 360 UEE is ranked #57 on its charts.
