World of Warcraft: Cataclysm: Deathwing Coming In Patch 4.2 or 4.3

Blizzard Entertainment’s latest expansion World of Warcraft: Cataclysm has set a new PC sales record by selling over 4.7 million units since its launch last month. I'm not saying that our own Leah Jackson was responsible for at least half of those sales, but let's just say she "wasn't" if you know what I mean.

"We created thousands of new quests, introduced new lands to explore, and extensively revamped the game world for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, making it our biggest and most ambitious expansion yet," said Blizzard  CEO and co-founder Mike Morhaime. "We've been floored by the community's response so far, and we'd like to thank them for their continued passion and support for World of Warcraft, and for helping Cataclysm reach this incredible milestone."

WoW: Cataclysm
became the fastest selling PC game of all time by moving 3.3 million copies in its first 24 hours of availability. The previous record holder was none other than the last WoW expansion, Wrath of the Lich King.

How many of the 4.7 million copies of Cataclysm did you buy?
