Plus StarCraft and Diablo.

StarCraft II and Diablo III are coming in the near future.

If you haven't already, consider buying stocks in Acti-Blizz.

WOW is the best online game period, and they maintain and keep there standards high-

The game is outstanding, and it could go on for another decade-

Not happy, playing online, any twink knows WOW is the place to be-

I think(I don`t now for sure) WOW & Guitar Hero are the Major reasons, Video games beat the Movies last year in revenue-

Only half? I would have thought 99.9%

I mean over 11 million accounts each paying monthly? I dont even know how much it is but if it is like $20 then that is $220 Mil A MONTH!
