Blizzard's StarCraft II will go down in history as one of the most successful game launches of all time. The company reports (via Fudzilla) that their new title sold over 1 million copies for Mac and PC on launch day. It broke 1.5 million in just 48 hours. So far, this makes the highly-anticipated sequel the largest game launch of the year.

StarCraft II will also go down as the fastest-selling RTS in history. It launched in 11 different languages and on five continents on the first day. Blizzard's steadfast dedication to making their game available to as many different customers as possible has proved to be quite wise.

I've spent a fair chunk of the last few days playing through the campaign. StarCraft II doesn't bring anything wildly new to the table, but it presents a more polished and intuitive gaming experience than any other title in the genre. Only time will tell if this sequel will gain the legendary popularity of the original (which has attained status as a major sport in South Korea), but so far the prognosis is good.
