The third expansion pack to the popular on line gaming series ‘World of Warcraft’ has broken the record for most game units sold in a 24 hours. What’s not included is the $15 monthly fee users have to pay in order to play the game.
The new World of Warcraft add-on “Wrath of the Lich King” sold a whopping 2.8 million units in its first 24 hours. That’s at $40 a pop, for more than $100 million in first-day sales.
I wonder which version my cousin got, the $40 no thrills add-on or the $70 ‘collectors edition’ version with useless trading cards that were added to boost the price? Guess I won’t be seeing him over the Thanksgiving holidays!
