No, 5 million in US alone? There are "only" 2.5 Million WoW players in USA, a little more than 2 Million in Europe. The rest is in China or other countries."Bliz will make millions" is a little bit wrong. First the sales of the package alone isn't counted into profit as the money is being spend in marketing, paying the bandwidth of the first 4 weeks (which are free usually) and support.The money of the retail box usually stays with the distributor Vivendi (or Activision)

You don't get a free month in an expansion...But considering the profit Blizz will make on the months of time people will be buying to play it (New and Old Players alike), they will indeed make millions. But not off the box, as you said. That's why the game is being sold pretty cheaply in most places.
