I was actually going by the Wikepedia list of best selling computer game numbers


However, it appears that they got their own numbers from the press release you were talking about.

Though they only shipped 2million to retailers, so perhaps they were expecting it to slow down and actually hit about 50% at most.

I don't think the expansion to D3 will rival the sales of the original game, largely because we're in a different game market now, but I could be wrong, I do expect them to be at least as good as sales of the LOD expansion though.
