Proving that geeks are the same no matter what side of the pond you are on, fans looking to be among the first to get their hands on WoW's second expansion Wrath of the Lich King queued up on Oxford Street in London to buy the game. The first expansion of the game called The Burning Crusade sold 2.4 million copies on the first day of release.

The new expansion pack is selling for £24.99 and the player needs the original game, the other expansion pack, and a monthly subscription to play. WoW now has 11 million subscribers worldwide and is by far the most popular MMORPG ever.

As fans know, WoW can be a bit addicting for some players. John Lagrave, a senior product producer at Blizzard told the AFP that he is concerned with indulgence and overuse. Blizzard has added parental controls and rest bonuses that reward players for not playing.
