December 7th is a great day for them to release this. I thought the strategy was normally for companies to avoid launching titles on the same day as games that are considered the biggest titles of the year. Maybe they don't really share a target market with the WoW crowd, but a lot of people are going to be buying Cataclysm and nothing else for the next week or two. It is a movie tie in and those games tend to fall off the charts within the first two or three weeks of a films release.
Awesome choice for a release date
