Wow, Layoffs? No Blizzcon? what could be next?
expanison's are cash cows, nothing more. 10 mill+? sure show me where?time to take the rose tinted goggles off.
Just to jump into this real quick....it's not exactly 10 million subscribers. The Asian market which account for approx. half that number are on a pre-pay method because many of those players play internet cafe's. Thus a person could buy a card...play only 5 minutes and be considered as one of those 10 million.The numbers for those of us who are US/EU monthly subscribers have never been officially released to the best of my knowledge.
I dunno if it was mentioned, but I think it's funny they let 600 people go - 10% of whom are assumed to be development staff - and they said that none of their games were going to be affected. To me, this means that all the games have already been completed, essentially.Then, they announced that they were cutting Diablo 3 PvP. Looooooooooooool.
