"Whether or not World of Warcraft ever goes the direction of, I guess like Anarchy Online has gone the direction of going free-to-play with micro-transactions. Whether we ever shift to a free-to-play model is really too hard to say at this point.

"Anything I say now could easily five years from now end up seeming like, oh my gosh, that was an incredibly dumb thing to say."
