@James: "Blizzard won't see many *new* subscriptions, they'll just see people drop WoW for the new game they release."Even if people shift their $15/month from WoW to WoW2 , they will also see 8 million people pony up $50 for the WoW2 install discs ($70 for the collector's edition). Plus some portion of those would probably keep their WoW1 subscription up, especially if Blizzard releases another expansion for it, and starts offering some sort of bundle, $25/month gets you access to both. There's definitely a way to make this a profitable exercise.@A lot of people about upgrading WoWs engine - have you compared WoW to LoTR or EQ2 or anything else out there? It's already got them all beat, technically. Now, if you don't like the cartoony aesthetic that's another thing. But technically speaking, their engine is pretty damned good.I agree that World of Diablo would be way too close to WoW and I am crossing my fingers for a World of Starcraft that appears sometime in the next five years.That said, I agree
