Wrath of the Lich King sold 4.000.000 in its first month. So Cata raised that with 700.000 more.Also:China doesn't have expansion sales - just hourly pay to play mechanism.About the guy above who said lies: Blizzard can't because it is a stock rated company with audited and controlled financial reports. They risk sentences up to life emprisonnement if they would do that.A new player is not even into buying Cata as it is only needed for level 80-85.These are only the first month sales. As Wotlk is still in the top 15 of PC games sold, it is odd that people think Cata will only sell in its first month.Conclusions: Cata has clearly out sold Wrath by 15%The non Chinese market is probably around 6.000.000+ today. That's taking into account that Cata will sell a lot of new boxes in the coming weeks/months.That's awesome. Other western MMO's never came above the 350K sustained subs after 6 months.After 6 years WOW not only grew but shattered every record in the western PC game market.
