Op Ed

Frictionless Insight - On the Drop in World of Warcraft Subscriber Numbers.
That leaves us assuming that World of Warcraft related GAAP Net revenues (including "subscriptions, boxed products, expansion packs, licensing royalties, and value-added services") were $181 million in the latest quarter compared to $359 million in the comparable quarter a year earlier. That's a 50% drop.

There are substantial assumptions in the above calculations, but there's no question that Activision Blizzard's cash WoW-cow is floundering. Clearly, the company hopes that Mists of Pandaria, coming out on September 25 will fix things. Can anthropomorphic pandas fix the problem?

Negative posting FTW... Simply, post low numbers now, show high numbers later and MoP up the cash
