It is a well known fact that most individuals like statistics, and when it comes to your favorite video game, wouldn’t you like to know the demographic, economic, sociographic, psychographic and other such statistics based on the usage? Here is an interesting bit of statistics about World of Warcraft, which is one of the most played MMORPGs in the world.
In fact the game is still growing by leaps and bounds. The statistics reveal that 48% of the players are located in Asia and 22% in North America and 17% in Europe. If you just counted the players in North America and Europe, an astounding $800 million is produced in revenue per year.
Only one in 5 players is a woman and 22.7 hours in a week is spent playing World of Warcraft while only 35 hours are spent in working.
Some of the celebrity players include Dave Chapelle, Mila Kunis, MacCauley Culkin, Jessica Simpson and others.
The total number of subscribers to the game is 11.5 million which is more than the population of both Cuba or New York City. It costs up to $136,986 alone to bear the server costs which is enough to buy a brand new Audi R8 every day.
