Almost 2 million copies, that's freakin fantastic for a pc game. Heck, that's really good even on console. Nice to see Pc gaming getting alittle recognition.

especially when you consider the somewhat steep system requirements of today's PC games.

I think valve is still that they finally got HL2 out the door. Give them a few more months to get over it.

LOL. I think it's one of those things-where teens saw how nice it looked, knew they had a computer " and just had to give it a shot" hoping they could achieve the screens on the back of the box.

Now is this retail sales or retail sales + Steam downloads?

TBH thats not really all too impressive considering the "best game ever" hype.

The Sims 2 (PC) sold a million copies in 10 days.

Halo 2 (XBX) sold over 5 million in 3 weeks.

Doom 3 (PC) sold about a million copies in two months.

I really think HL2 is going to be a big seller over the long term, HL and CS was this way and they've now sold around 10million copies. While 1.7 mill is not that impressive (halo 2 has sold like 6 mill?) for such a big game it is still a very good number. At $50 a pop that is $85million.
