"so we can presume Blizzard has spent at least $500 million on their staff,"no, we can't. He isn't saying that's what Blizzard spent, he is just hypothesizing what it would take to compete. Which could be more than Blizzard spent due to marketing or inflation, or less (there is research to say it costs 75% of original R&D to steal an idea from another company)This article is full of wild claims about numbers. I know you are not actually claiming real knowledge just hypothesizing, but it exhibits a painful lack of understanding of costs of business, and even moreso a scientific approach to understanding what people are saying and then judging what you can know based on that.
