Why shouldn't he be a celebrity? 10 million people have, at least once, paid $30 or more to be witness to a genre he helped to flourish. Thats $300 million USD- Steven Spielberg's last incarnation of the Indiana Jones series made about the same money- $350 million domestically. If you count in the $15/month fee thats another $150 million USD (per month) which means that in one year the income from WoW is 1.8 billion- 1.05 billion more than the entire foreign and domestic take for Indy (~750 million worldwide). That number will also eclipse all the DVD sales for the film- ANY film. WoW, as a product of fiction has outsold every movie ever made and thats just WoW "classic". Add in tBC and the upcoming WoTLK and I guarantee their numbers have surpassed 5 billion in earnings. As a comparison, annually Albania only earns 20 billion GDP. Yup, he's a celebrity.
