Blizzard has announced that World of Warcraft's second expasnsion Wrath of the Lich King has sold more than 4 million copies in the first month, smashing previous sales records.
Only? Disappointing! (haha)
Isn't it strange that some people can think that only 4 million sales in a month is poor. That's the trouble with WoW's success, it sets the bar too high for everything that comes after it, even it's own products.
Wow! That's twice what they sold for Burning Crusade. That shows there is high interest in this new expansion.
It's amazing how the game's popularity is still growing.
are they even selling it in china yet?
They really know their stuff, they held the last record.
With 4 million subscribers outside of China (China having 7 million) that means that the vast majority of existing players bought the XPack which is pretty phenomenal. Unless of course that includes China in which case it's pish.
There's no stopping the growth. you have to wonder if anything can snag away some of the subscibers.
I don't think it can, WoW's largest contender to date - Warhammer Online - didn't make a dent.
Those are impresive numbers!
That's quite a lot. I used to sell my self on several platforms, but even in my heyday I was never that good. That's almost three months work for me.
LOL at Tamer
people know they are chasing dangling carrots and they continue to pay and play and get divorced .... addictions a b*tch.
Very impressive numbers indeed.
They could sell crap and people would eat it like chocolate. Oh wait, that's exactly what they did with WotLK...
so true! WoW is an insult to old school mmos
I wonder what the bandwidth usage has been for this game ever since it went online
