#17 – Gamer Lounge Episode – E3 and More!

8 06 2009

It has been FOREVER since we’ve put out a new episode, but now we finally did.  Considering the fact that tonight’s episode went so well, the chances of us staying consistent are really good now.  Since we had 6 months worth of stuff to cover, this was an extra long show. Topics included E3, UP, and pretty much everything else that’s in the below mountain of tags. At a little over an hour and a half, the show should keep you busy until next Sunday!  🙂

At long last we have an episode again!  In this episode we talk about the delay, a car accident, Wrath of the Lich King, Quantum of Solace, Left4Dead, the iTunes app store, Thanksgiving festivities, and so much more!

In the show, we shared a few links with you that would allow you to keep tabs on what we’re doing.  They will be found below.  (But hey, you’ve already found my main site!  🙂 )

Can WoW Be Free Now?

17 09 2008

I found THIS ARTICLE to be interesting indeed.  The juicy part of this article is that Blizzard announced that over the last five years it has only cost them $200 million in upkeep.  Now at first glance this looks like a lot, but let’s put things into perspective.  5 years is 60 months.  World of Warcraft currently has something like 10 million subscribers (I think it’s actually about 12 mil now) paying about $15 a month.  (They can pay $1 or $2 less if they pay for multiple months at a time)

So this is about $150 million they are making a month.  150*60=9000.  So they’ve made $9 billion dollars from monthly fees alone.  So in other words, only about 1% goes to upkeep.  Interesting.

Update: Let’s look at something else, shall we?  How many subscribers, paying $15 a month, would they need to break even after five years?  Well, $200 million divided by the 60 months is about $3, 333, 333.33.  Not divide this by $15 (for the monthly fee), and you get 222,222.22 which would round to 222,223 subscribers.  They currently have more than 10 million.  I’d say they did Ok.

Now let’s look at one final thing.  What if they took a method like Guild Wars did and only charged for the main game and expansions.  Well, $50*$10 million gives you $500 million.  Then you can pretty much double that considering the Burning Crusade expansion pack.  Again, looks like they would be Ok.  Hmmm…it does seem like the subscription model isn’t necessary.

#7 – The Gamer Lounge Episode – Oversea Journey!

9 07 2008

This is one of those times where I just could not think of a good image to search for. Instead I just searched for “fat bulldog.” This is the result! 😀

In this episode Johan (From Sweden!) joins us and we talk about everything from EVE Online to Hancock to gas prices. It’s worth a peek! Just to warn you though, you might have to turn up your computer/.mp3 player’s volume to hear Larry at certain points.
