WoW: Burning Crusade on Fire

World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Shatters Day-1 Sales Record is a press release that wows us with word that the new WoW expansion sold more copies in its first 24 hours than many games will sell in a lifetime, with more that 2.4 million copies sold:
Day-one sales totals on both continents were similar, with an estimated total of nearly 1.2 million copies sold on the first day in North America and an estimated total of more than 1.1 million copies sold in Europe within the first 24 hours of launch(a). By the end of the first day of availability on both continents, a total of more than 1.7 million players had already logged in and upgraded World of Warcraft to play The Burning Crusade.

I don't mean to be sour grapes, but the success of WoW really depresses me. I just don't see Blizzard ever really paying much attention to single player or non-persistent multiplayer with success like this.

I have always hated MMO games, and probably always will. I'm sure WoW is a great game to those who are into the genre, but I worry about the effect of such unprecedented success on PC Gaming. It really bothers me that MMO's will pretty much define PC gaming in the not-too-distant future.

Prez, go buy World of Warcraft, install it on your computer and join the online sensation before we all murder you.
