WoW Hits 10 Million Subscribers

WoW

By Luke Anderson

If you’re having a really bad day, doesn’t it help for someone to stop by your desk and tell them how fabulous and wonderful their life is? I know that I enjoy having someone else’s good day rubbed in my face makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. If you’re needing that special pick-me-up, you can be sure that Blizzard will be more than happy to let you know that they’ve just hit over 10 million paying subscribers for World of Warcraft.

If you imagine that each one of those people are paying $15 per month, that would be $150 million dollars coming in each and every month. If that doesn’t make you feel great, I don’t know what will. For those wondering, yes, I would be one of those 10 million and no I’m not proud of the amount of time I’ve spent in Azeroth that I’ll never get back.

    I would check out Tobold’s blog entry today about this topic (http://tobolds.blogspot.com/2008/01/wow-hits-10-million-on-rebound.html) since he explains that not every person is giving out $15 a month. But still it is a large chunk of change just for the NA and EU pieces.

    You know what’s worse? I have to read gadgets news sites for my job. And then I have to work. And work some more. And I just hit level 60 and got my epic mount. It’s so frustrating to read about WoW and not being able to play! Aargh :(

    Probably not 10 mill, I’m sure some people have more than one account… /cry

    10 million, I don’t feel so bad now even though I am still the oldest person in my guild of over a hundred people (except for redwinerobe who is 39) . I am 34.

    Why would anyone pay for 2 account when you can have multiple characters on the single account?
