The tsunami most game executives didn't see coming was the rise in subscription-based online PC gaming, which wasn't reflected in the retail sales charts that dominate big screens in boardrooms. Online PC games like Lineage II and World of Warcraft are on pace to take in more than $2 billion this year worldwide."
