Who the hell wants a CD version anyway?
DVD is the future GG last gen cd players.Only with the power of DVD can WOLTK be released into an addicted public.
Good. Nobody wants to go through 10 CDs to install a game.
just goes to show you, sooner or later 3-4 years from now, the new standard for game installing via disc is going to be on BLu-ray, Heck just look, installs are taking on average 2 DVD 5's now, and its going to multiply soon.
Unless they come out with a faster format of similar size before then.
"3-4 years from now, the new standard for game installing via disc is going to be on BLu-ray" Yea cause after over 20 years they are just starting to make dvd standard so ya go SDF
If DVDs are just now becoming standard after all these years then Blu-Ray still has quite a ways to go before it's adopted.
What's a CD?
This is sort of disappointing. Some WOW gamers still only have a CD drive. I personally only know one of them, but they are out there and I would consider this a poor decision on Blizzard's part.
There's a point in every machine's life where it's just time to move on.
theres a lot of smaller developers who still release games on CD's (The Adventure Company publishes quite a few CD based games). Cd's have been in decline with developers making bigger and more complex games that require a lot more storage space, but that is not always the case as shown by the smaller devs. CD based games will probably be rarer to find in future but I doubt they'll stop existing completely
Just buy a DVD drive, they're like £10.
What is this CD you Speak of??????????
Are you kidding me? There is no excuse to not having a dvd drive in your pc especially when you are paying 15 bucks a month to play WoW and its 2008. You can get a brand new dvd drive for 20 bucks now.
