ajgeek: WoW? That's a soccer mom game now. Still, 2.3m for a bunch of digital kittens is quite a haul.

Indeed. WoW is more of a social network grafted into a 3D world, where players can chat while playing "Plants vs. Zombies", "Farmville" and "Pokemon", than it is anything resembling a 'violent video game' anymore. It is built to entertain children and parents without being offensive.

Also, Pandas.

They probably raised it by beating up and stealing from old ladies who would have protected themselves had they been allowed to carry fully automatic AR-15s with extended mag clips, armor piercing bullets, and ACOG scopes
