Part one of an interesting interview with Itzik Ben Bassat (Blizzard's vice president of business development) was posted today over at talking about the release of the Burning Crusade. It deals with the expansion rate of WoW, Consoles, Fees and much more. How important is The Burning Crusade in terms of Blizzard's overall strategy for World of Warcraft?

Itzik Ben Bassat: It's very important because it's the first expansion for WOW, so it's a milestone - and it's also important because, like any Blizzard game, we put so much time and effort into every little detail.

We've been working on it so hard for so long that it's really like giving birth to a new baby. We all feel like this is a great moment where we're doing something really big for players.
