World of Warcraft Shatters Day-One Sales Records for PC Games
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 12/03/2004 11:28:00 PM.

Blizzard Entertainment today confirmed that World of Warcraft has broken day-one sales records in North America, making it the most successful PC game launch ever. The subscription-based MMORPG sold through to over 240,000 customers at retailers in North America on Tuesday, November 23, selling more than any other PC game in history. In addition, major retailers such as Wal-Mart, Best Buy, EB and Gamestop reported that hundreds of their stores sold out of World of Warcraft on the first day.

The game also broke peak concurrency and account creation records for a MMORPG. Over 200,000 players created World of Warcraft accounts, and by 5:00 p.m. PST, over 100,000 were playing the game concurrently--making the game the fastest-growing MMORPG in history. Due to large number of users, Blizzard doubled the number of servers from 40 to 80, causing slight downtimes that have been mostly resolved.
