    Is it known if SuperData only compared MMOs ? I only ask because it would be interesting to know how those revenue numbers compare to other game genres.

    Over a billion US for WoW. All I can say is.. there are too many people out there with vitamin D issues...

    Why does it not come with a warning on the box? :D

    This is a surprise. I honestly thought they'd pull the plug on this one ages ago.

    Remember that the majority of WoW players are casual. Sure there was a time when I was bordering the 'hardcore' player, but for the most part (7 years) I've been casual. In this time I've almost always stayed subscribed, even if I haven't played for a month. It's a monthly outgoing that I tend to forget about until it's already gone out. This is how they make their money. Sucker.

    More importantly than anything else Blizzard actually cares for their customers. I've waited, beta tested, was one of the first players to login and bought a SWTOR collector's package and leaving the game wasn't really that painful after 6 months because of the bugs and their pretty much ridicule customer support.

    I must confess I'm quite surprised they're actually making any revenue out of the game.
