Now, you cannot take every sale, promotion, or other offer as a sign of something wrong. Coke goes on sale at the supermarket practically every third week where I live, and I don’t start wondering if they, or the store, are in trouble because of it.
Still, when a WoW expansion goes half price just two months after launch, it is something that makes you go “hmmm…”
I recall, back in the day, Burning Crusade going for full price until just before Wrath of the Lich King.
Yes, it is the high holiday shopping season, a time for deals. And this offer appears to be directed to former subscribers. (Offer ends November 29th) And, of course, the market has changed since 2006 and Burning Crusade.
Then again, Amazon.com had the Pandaria Collector’s edition for half price as well, and that is generally a sign of excess stock.
I still have no burning desire to go back to Azeroth. Well, post-Cataclysm Azeroth in any case. But I am sure this will get a few more people back in the game.
