Diablo 3: To say that Diablo 3 had an impact on the gaming world last week is an understatement. Not only did the number of hours the Xfire community played MMORPGs drop 16.8%, but the Xfire community played Diablo 3 over 40,000 hours more than it did all MMORPGs combined. The big losers were Aion (-28%), World of Warcraft (-21.2%) and Star Wars: The Old Republic (-21.1%).
One Ring To Rule Them All: Only one game in The Digital Dozen managed to buck the trend and actually see playtime rise. Lord of the Rings Online, on the strength of the release of Update 7: Shades of the Past, last Monday, managed to pull of a 3.6% gain over the previous Sunday. That gives hope for games like Eve Online, with Inferno launching today, and SW:TOR with patch 1.3 due out in June/July, that Diablo 3 will not bury all games for months to come.
