WoW's Burning Crusade sells 3.5 million


Released in Europe, Canada, and the United States on January 16, World of Warcraft expansion pack The Burning Crusade has topped the 3.5 million sales mark. That's one copy for every man, woman, and child in Casablanca and is half a million more than the population of Armenia. Over 2.4 million of those sales took place on release day alone. Nearly 8.5 million people in the world (and it's safe to assume the galaxy) are subscribed to the MMORPG, and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Blizzard officials were unavailable for comment, but were spotted sunning on their private yachts, Speedos stuffed with cash.
