WOW subscription numbers give a misrepresentation of how many people are truly currently playing due to the way Asian countries track their accounts. I figure about a 3rd of that number might be more accurate for actual  current people logging in to play.

Concurrent players (total number of players logged in at any one time) is probably a little over a million, yes about a 3rd of that 9.6 million are pay monthly subscribers this is backed up by MOP sales of 2.7 million in the first week of release that has likey gone up to 3-3.5 million sales by now, also remember those that dont pay monthly also dont need to buy MOP so blizzrad does not need to sell 9.6million copies of MOP to justify their figures.

 

So we're to believe what... there are over 6 million active subscribers to WoW that didn't buy MoP yet still play, even though the latest content is walled off to them? Please allow me a smidge of skepticism here.

No there are not 6 million who did not buy the expansions those 6 million got it free becuase of a different play model in that region, what I was trying to show was that western (well monthly sub) players still amount at several millions based on the number of expansion boxes sold.

Ah, so there are/were some 3-odd million non-Chinese based subscribers.

Oderint, dum metuant.

Plus, no one says all the 9.6M players are all old timers with max level characters. A lot of people quit WOW because they play too long and it got boring. May be many are new comers and they don't need MOP yet.

LOL .. so much hate.

D3 is still top 10 on xfire, and certainly way more people are playing it, than something like Eve. Want to be the expansion is going to sell millions?

They are different genres, why compare D3 to EvE, why not compare it to Fifa13 or CoD.

I am looking forward to SC 2 HoS as well as Diablo III expansion.

This forum is funny...Anet sells 3m copies and they are perceived as the most successful company in the history of PC gaming. Blizz sells 12m copies of ARPG, maintains +- 10m subscribers in 8 year old MMO, yet they suck according to many people here.

That guy above even claimed that there are 11m+ disappointed people who will never buy Blizz product again...are you serious?

Many people on this site have absolultely no grasp of reality.

Starcraft Expansion + D3 Expansion will each sell millions... probably 10's of millions combined.

And the next WoW expansion whenever and whatever that may be will sell millions more.

Blizzard isn't going anywhere.

It's not like they are EVER going to release a product and sell less than a few millions copies of it.

Seriously people...

Let's compare it to other games. And i did say top 10 in xfire .. that is in comparison to all online games, right.

D3 is way ahead of FIFA 13 on xfire.

D3 is behind COD4, but ahead of COD BO2 (the newer COD) on xfire.

In terms of sales, BO2 sold 7.4M in its first month.

http://www.egmnow.com/articles/news/black-ops-2-sales-down-14-percent-year-on-year-in-u-s/

I think D3 sold 6M in its first week, and 10M in its first 3 months. So i guess they are comparable.

So i guess D3, in terms of sales, and play-time, stacks up well with the best FPS franchise.

As much as I think Blizzard are money grubbers and some of their design choices are questionable, I still enjoy their games.

I played SC2 single player to completion, I put 300 hours into D3, I've played and quit every WoW expansion.

I've enjoyed my time with all 3, but no longer play any of them.

I mean is it because people expect more? They expect perfection, a game that will sustain them for years and when they don't get it they rage?

I spent full box copy for Farcry 3 and finished it in 20 hours, i'll never be playing it again. I put 300 hours into D3, which game would I say is better? They were both good and neither perfect.

No doubt. Because Blizz made fun games. I will be buying D3 expansion, and probably BOTH D3 & SC heart of the swarm. Heck, i enjoy SC2 single campaign very much even when i am not a big RTS fan.

that cuts both ways

despite D3 selling 4x as well as GW2,  GW2 has higher gameplay than D3 on Xfire

Sure .. because lots of people are playing D3 single player. And no one says GW2 is not a success. And both are MUCH higher than Eve in terms of sales and xfire numbers.

Good perspective.

Same argument with WOW. I quit WOW last Dec but before that i played for years, and probably put in 2000 hours. So how is that not a fun game?

Games does not have to last forever to be fun. In fact, i put much less into Dead Space, or Dishonor, or Deus Ex and these three are great games in my books.

D3 singleplay does not lower Xfire stats - single player is still online play

Single player will have less reason to use xfire because xfire is for MP functionalities. There is self-selection here.
