Blue: No WoW on shelves for now...

In regards to a query about an inability to find World of Warcraft on store shelves, the following appeared from Caydiem:

We will release more copies when we're confident that all players, old and new, will have a stable, enjoyable experience on our realms.

My theory had been that they were waiting for a future (large) patch before pressing new CDs, to avoid massive downloads after a fresh install. This is more deeply fundamental. Looks like they're trying to put long-term user experience ahead of immediate profits - because Bog knows they could sell a load more boxes...
