Dear WoW, please call again once you're free to play. I might consider dating you then, but don't count on it.
Here's an idea, ActiBlizz: give away the base game for free and make that part (and ONLY that part) free to play. I'm sure a lot of people will bite and give you money for the dozen (or so) of add-ons.
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.
