I was reading my local newspaper this week and found an article about World Of Warcraft. I don’t play the game and have no thoughts of playing it any time soon but thought others would find it interesting.

Also here’s a quote that mentions Second Life at the end of the article:
“The virtual gaming universe is not, however, limited to World of Warcraft; it’s fast growing competitor, Second Life, recently added a branch of Sears where gamers can buy real merchandise.”
I wouldn’t classify Second Life as a direct competitor to WOW. They are two different style of Virtual Worlds. WOW is mainly for gaming where Second Life can be for gaming but used for many other stuff too.
