A drop in china... wonder if the gold farmers got defeated :)

But I guess it is only natural that people don't keep playing the same thing once it starts to get boring.
I do what I think is right. But I don't think that what I think is right can not be wrong.

Still, 10 million down from a peak of 12... I'd have expected the numbers to have been much worse than that... That's still like 80 million quid a month anyway for only a bit of server maintenance!

Apparently MW3 and Skyrim have had record-breaking sales, and the new Zelda and Mario games are about to hit the market.

That's where all the worlds' money is going... :roll:

The portion of it that is now not being spent on WoW subs, I mean. :P

Well Skyrim is .... played it for like 30 hours and got bored with it and after hearing a friend of mine who finished it i was like a few hours away of finishing the main quest(game)

As for MW3 like all shooters i think its like 75% of the players dont play RPGs and the otherway arround. Its hard to be the best in both games you need to put time in it.

And i even see nintendo dying cause the gameboy/nds was really the money income for nintendo and with smart phones and pads they gonna lose players also.

What i want to know is, Titan for example or any other new sick MMORPGs are they continue to use monthly payments or like most free games to have a marketplace where you buy ingame stuff for real money.

Think we have to wait and see what the future brings us. :lol:

BTW i was looking at the game blade and soul, releases dates are ridiculous.
Korea Q4 2011 europe/us Q4 2012 I dont know but keeping a game a year long away from other countries seems just not worth it.
And this game had gameplay vids like 3 years ago lol well i guess the gaming industry have a hard time
Don't micromanage my psychodamage.
