Just saw this on massively . I did think sales would be down but this is lot lower than I'd anticipated . To be honest I think its way too low to be accurate even if its doesn't include digital sales . Still it will be intersting to see the offical sales figures when they come out .

Or you know, the game is just getting old and people are moving on. Low sales isn't an automatic indication that the interwebz has suddenly come to some conclusion that WoW is a terribad game.

expresso commented in a different thread

when D3 sold 3.5m its first day -- 2.5million of those sales were digital

I don't know anyone who bought a box version of the expansion instead of the digital version. The expansion is already downloaded. You wouldn't even have to insert the discs into the computer.

 

Yet they discount the relevence of the digital sales...yeah...ok...

 

So this little "story" is completely useless.

Have to agree here. The shear number of digital delux/CE mounts that were running around when the MoP patch dropped a month ago says this could be their first expansion to have digitals outsell boxed copies.

I think WoW is far from  terrible . Its not something I would want to play like I once did as its content has been watered down so much its not worth spending a lot of time in anymore . The problem is this is an indication of not just a smalll decline (if true) . This is something Blizzard as a company will have to take notice of . If I was a shareholder in Bliz I would be extemly concerned about this . I would want answers as to why this had happened and I would want heads to roll . I would also question whether the game was going in the right direction and how to bring back people to it .

This may all be for the best eventually . Its a wake up call maybe . But lets wait and see what digital sales are like .

If you watch a game, it’s fun. If you play it, it’s recreation. If you work at it, it’s FF-XIV.

 Unlike other MMOs zone design still favours solo play.  Mob density was nerfed to the ground, 'Elite' mobs are no longer elite, resource nodes are not sharable and this being WoW PvP players have set up NPC death squads to keep questgivers dead.  Also mobs are not sharable, first to tag gets credit, xp and loot.  Furthermore PvP players were let off the leash on RP and PvE realms as initially realm type was ignored in crossing. 

They took part of a good idea and ignored the rest resulting in a Massively Miserable Online Roleplayer Ganking game.

Quote from EccentricaJones from http://massively.joystiq.com

 

Seems like they had a Illum moment that hurt pve-rp players experience by letting pvp exclusive players go on a griefing farm. This usually ends up being a turn off from people waiting to play the game after bugs are worked out since it becomes A focus point at bad development. However Amazon and Gamestop are retail stores that offer digital download. So regardless some digital download sales were in the initial count.

There's a couple of things.  I think the majority of sales this time was from digital download...There were probably more than 2 million pre-orders of digital download alone hehe.  Also, just from what i've noticed, I have characters on 3 different servers, and all of them have had queues during primetime, and that hasn't happened since TBC on one of them.  So there has to be some there.  One of my servers has had a 10-100 player queue since MoP has launched no matter what time of day.  I logged in last night at 2am to say good night to some friends, and it has a 22 player queue...at 2am central :)

Most definitely, there isnt any evidence to suggest the game didnt sell well at all, and 'retail' sales could well represent less than 10 percent of overall sales, although some people do prefer boxed/physical discs vs digital, fewer retailers stock PC games now, its often the case that the only real choice is mail order or digital, and mail order sometimes means additional costs for postage etc.  At some point hopefully we'll get more data on sales figures that include digital, it would be interesting in itself, just for the information on what percentage each category represented.

Let the digital count come out. Hold on to your pants a little bit longer. In my guess MOP has easily sold around 2 to 2.5 million in digital alone.

Ive bought it  but havent logged in for more than 10 mins. Wow doesnt interest me as much as it once did, but  ive invested too much time in it to ignore the expansion.

there are no digital download offered for MOP - at either amazon or gamestop

 its an irrelevant assumption

I wouldn't be surprised if Digital Sales do outsell Boxed copies this time around, but there are two things I find "troubling" for Blizzard:

1) The very large number of Low and Medium Pop Servers - even on Launch Day in "Primetime" (every Server I used to play on stayed pegged at Medium)

2) X-Fire Number of Players - Last I checked it still hadn't broken 10k. That number is way down from where WoW used to be.

I'm sure the expansion will turn a profit for Blizzard and sell millions of copies. Internally though I wouldn't be surprised if Blizzard considers MoP a disappointment (at least initially) - people just aren't coming back to the game in close to the numbers that they wanted to see.

Your math doesn't add up . If the retail sold 700 thousand boxed games then that would mean digital downloads would account for 6 million +  by your estimates which far exceeds Cataclysm which is unlikly . As someone else said the game isnt released in China yet so every single person playing WoW in the west would have had to have brought a digital download on day one .

I do. Any game that comes out, if it has a boxed version, I get it. Yes, I'm a freakin' dinosaur. Get over it. lol
