League of Legends Soars

Over 70 million players are now registered to play League of Legends, announces Riot Games, saying this is more than double the number of users the game boasted as of November 2011, adding that the number of monthly active users has nearly tripled in that time. Here are the impressive numbers: "Riot Games have now amassed 70 million registered summoner names more than double compared to November 2011. The volume of monthly active players is almost triple the amount of 2011 coming in at 32 million and 3 million daily peak concurrency. The total amount of hours played a month reaches 1 billion." Since a player population that would qualify as the 19th largest country in the world is hard to put into perspective (though that bit about the countries helps), they have created an infographic to help us comprehend the implications of this.

I played the heck out of LoL - it is a good game with a pretty awful community.

Business Insider has their yearly revenue estimated at $25 Million for 2010. They released in 2009. There is no way in hell that they are now pulling in $5 Million per day.

My guess: "Ngmoco GM and free-to-play expert Ben Cousins" is notsomuch of an expert afterall. I found an article where he says consoles are dying.

Why can't people realize that PC gaming, console gaming, and mobile gaming can and will co-exist together?
