I expect random idiots on forums to go "oh 11.5 million subscribers x $15 a month revenue = $172 million," but it's pathetic and embarrassing that WoW Insider would make the same mistake. 5-6 million of those subscribers are in Asia where they don't use the same monthly subscription payment plan (and pay a lot less). You even say that you know the charge isn't the same worldwide - so why did you print that number??If I recall correctly, Vivendi's last annual report (prior to the Activision deal) listed something like $900 million for Blizzard, which would be $75 million per month.
