Of course WoW isn't pulling in the kind of scratch it was in it's heyday, its what, a 5 year old game? Pulling in 100 mill a month that many years on later still makes it a god damn titan of the gaming world, and one so far which no one has managed to equal, let alone topple.

Heck, you would think given how much tech improves in 5 years that brand new mmo's can't even match it is some achievement.

I'm thinking it is actually more like seven years old now... Didn't it come out in Fall/Winter of 2005?

Sounds like something he found in his phone's SMS templates.

I got to thinking about this and I came to the conclusion that they're starting localization way before the game is complete since the series is arguably more popular in the US than Japan.

That does make sense, and it kind of reminds me of how Atlus is localizing some of their games for the US before they hit Japan too.

Kingdom Hearts huh? I'm leaning towards a 3DS but can't pull the trigger until the redesign.
