9 miilion accounts, that's (roughly) $450 million in box sales, plus (let's average) 4.5 million * $15/month * 12 months/year * 3 full years = another $810 million in monthly fees
Numerical proof that you're all fuckin idiots.
First of all, I don't ever pay retail for a game, EVER. I purchase used from ebay, mostly less than 1/2 price. Sure it takes a few months for the game price to drop, but so what... It's not like my life revolves around a stupid, saturday morning cartoony game. Maybe that's what you're all so pissed off about. I'm better than you because I'm not addicted.
Secondly, you fuckin morons keep paying these guys by the month!!!!! So say that you've played since the start of the game 3 years ago. That's almost $600 for a fuckin' video game. And you call me a tool????? LMFAO!!!!!
