WoW is wow. Since its release back in November 24th, World of Warcraft has farmed its way to 8.6 million copies sold in US retail alone, with 800,000 of those coming in its first month. This figure includes sales from World of Warcraft, the collector's edition version, Battle Chest, and the two standalone expansions: The Burning Crusade and Wrath of The Lich King.
There wasn't any breakdown on the average sales price and which version sold the most, but Gamasutra is pegging total revenues at around US 258 million from US retail alone. Surprising? Hell no. 11.5 million subscribers paying US 15 a month to play really says something about how great this game is.
