You didn't sum up the true cost of WoW, you summed up the total cost. What you should look at is how many hours you play. If you only play 1 hour a week then you'd probably be better off going to the movies or buying that X-Box. If you play 20 hours a week, then your cost/hour for WoW is certainly the most effective option.And of course cost doesn't factor fun or enjoyment into it either, which is obviously subjective but since this is all talking about differing ways of paying for entertainment, its a big factor. I like FPS games, and I'd enjoy playing Halo both single and multi-player. But I could never play it as much as I do WoW without getting bored. I've played WoW regularly for years and have not gotten bored with it yet, so its clearly worth it to me and by now the amount I pay per hour is really cheap compared to other options. Someone else who doesn't play WoW as much or has just as much fun playing other games would have to evaluate whether its worth it for them.
