  • Oh boy... a million copies, you said?
    • Ok, 600k as of two weeks ago with 200k people online during peek holiday times.

      And Korea just came online.

      Yeah, do the math. $50 * 600k == 30 MILLION DOLLARS in the first couple months just from people buying the game. If even a third stay to play a 2nd month that's another 10 MILLION DOLLARS I wonder what the "break even" point is. How many user months do they need before dev costs
      • While I imagine Blizzard isn't seeing too much of the retail sales, I do imagine they are making a healthy share of the $10 million or so a month they are drawing in. I'm trying to be patient with regards to server stability, but $10 million a month should be able to buy whatever hardware and networking expertise they need to fix that aspect of things ;-)
