World of Warcraft has hit eight million players: congratulations to those of you who have the free time to spend so much effort on reality avoidance.
Seriously though, this is interesting, especially because of the apparent “stickiness” of WoW. The people that I know who play are die-hard– and there are a lot of them. So truly, congratulations Blizzard: this is definitely a huge feat in the frequently fickle world of gaming.
Therefore, it is important to note that the Burning Crusade expansion pack will be hitting store shelves tomorrow January 16th. If you can’t wait that long, head on down to Gamestop tonight for their midnight launch.
