1.5 MILLION World of Warcraft Subscribers

"...Blizzard Entertainment is now focused on preparing the game for launch in additional regions in Asia and firming up service support in existing data centers. World of Warcraft is scheduled to launch in China in 2005, where excitement for the game has already reached a fevered pitch, as evidenced by the 100,000 applications for the limited open beta in just the first hour of signups on February 28, 2005. Launches in Taiwan and other regions are scheduled to follow closely thereafter..."

I got my fingers crossed that World of Warcraft Philippines is just around the corner. Oh wait, World of Warcraft Philippines abbreviated is WoW Philippines...
