Analyst Predicts 5 Million Units In First Month For Lich King

Wrath of the Lich King is due out in ... approximately 4 days 10 hours, according to WoW Insider's countdown. That's exciting news for World of Warcraft players, and even more exciting news for Activision/Blizzard. The company, which relies on WoW's income for a noteworthy part of its profits, is expected to sell some 5 million copies of the MMO's second expansion just in the game's first month. Gamasutra reports on this speculation, which comes from Janco Partners analyst Mike Hickey.

Hickey thinks that the flagged US economy will ultimately not have an impact on Blizzard's numbers this holiday season, and is impressed by WoW's continued success in the face of competition like Age of Conan and Warhammer Online.

"there only meaning is to suck your life and wallet dry"

That's true for every game, but we still buy them because we enjoy them.

grinding, grinding, grinding, grinding, *falls asleep....

Thats what my last MMO experience was like, and i played for 10 minutes or so.

mmos are not fun to play at all.

all you do is grind. WoW is the worse mmo for grinding. after max level all you do is grind for armor.

grinding is not fun!

spending hours and days to finish a raid to get epic gloves. rejoice for 2 min and back to grinding.

i think its fun if you play them with your real life friends, especially in WoW I'm enjoying it mainly beacuse my freinds are in it and we having alot of laughs and fun memories.. but I'm with you if you play an mmos without knowing anyone kinda sucks.
