My Crusade is Burning

January 16, 2007

As I’m sure many of you know, today marked the official release of World of Warcraft: Burning Crusade. With seven million subscribers (yes, seven!) I expected that a good quarter of the current subscribers would have bought their copies. Perhaps all the fans are just not in my area. I went into my local Target (had a gift card) after work today, waltzed up to the PC gaming section praying that they still had some copies (my local Target is notorious for running out of stuff) and there rests a mountain of WoW. I’m not kidding here. There had to be a good four to five dozen of this game. I was surprised.

I know it’s not a new console or anything, and it’s just an expansion pack, and arguably, not that special (I bought it, but I’m not even sure why). Even so, with how everyone online was talking last night, I thought for sure I’d have trouble finding a copy. Either Blizzard pumped out too many, or not that many people really care enough to get it.

Did any of you get a copy? Was your local store in plentiful supply of the game? Perhaps my area was unique… or is that just how it was all over?
