블리자드에서 서비스는 하는 월드오브워크래프트!

일명 WOW

나도 한때 재미있게 플레이 했고 실제로 내가 해본 MMORPG에서 가장 재미있게 한 게임이다

사실 처음 나올때 일부에서는 과연 성공이 가능하겠냐?!

했지만 지금은 지구에서 가장 성공한 케이스가 되어버렸다..ㅎㅎㅎ

어찌하였든 블리자드에서는 WOW 서비스후 현재 유료가입자 천만명을 돌파했다고 한다

그 통계를 간단히 살펴보면

유럽 200만, 북아메리카 250만, 아시아 550만 이라고 한다

북미가 게임시장에서 성공해야 진정한 성공이라고 하지만 어찌보면 아시아에서 50%이상을 하고 있으니...

하기야 스타크래프트도 아시아에서 그것도 한국에서 엄청나게 팔아주었으니..ㅋ

WOW는 진짜 잘만들긴 잘만든 게임이기는 하다~!
