Yup, you read the title right. Raptr a gaming community app that is able to track hours played on the PC, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Steam, and Xfire reports that the top World of Warcraft: Catacylsm player logged 149 hours during the initial launch week. That's six days straight. I mean, is his/her schedule completely empty? Either that person just likes the game that much, or insane. You decide.
Also in this Raptr Report, the company said the top 11% of all WoW players generated 50% of all playtime hours. It also said that these WoW players stole the most playtime hours from Starcraft 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and League of Legends, which are all top notch games. You can read the rest of the WoW:Cataclysm Raptr Report here.
Now I'm a true believer that World of Warcraft is one of the most addictive games out there.
And if you didn't know, according to IGN, first day sales of World of Warcraft: Catacylsm set new records for Blizzard. The expansion sold more than 3.3 million copies world wide in the first 24 hours of its release (approx. $39.99 a piece). The previous WoW expansion Wrath of the Lich King sold a record 2.8 million in 2008. It's been a good year for Blizzard. -.-
Has anyone here even TRIED a feat of strength like this one? Thoughts?? Who plans to clear out next week's schedule and game for 150 hours?
