World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Sells Nearly 5 Million Copies

You can understand why so many developers want a piece of the MMO market when Blizzard sells 4.7 million units of an expansion onto the market in only a month (a stat that includes retail and digital sales). Most titles have trouble breaking that number from the base software itself, and Blizzard still has seven million more World of Warcraft players out there who didn’t even pick up Cataclysm (not including multi-accounts). That’s a lot of potential sales still left out there, but when you’re sapping $15 a month from them, does it even matter?

The latest updated shattered the previous record for PC sales, as if that shocks, well, anyone.
