Over 9 million people still subscribed to WoW before the expansion came out, so I would assume those numbers are now higher. WoW was also said to be about 30% of Activision Blizzards profit in the second (maybe first) quarter of this year.

Sadly, yes. My brother ONLY plays it. It's like a sickness. Won't even touch any great games I try getting him into (Bioshock, Borderlands 2, Uncharted...etc.)
