First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
D&D Online: Eberron Unlimited reaches 1 million subscribers

In a world dominated by Warcraft, it's a rare sight to see another MMO make its mark in the marketplace. Aion has managed moderate success in the US to match its dominance in Asia, and it looks like Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited could join them as a standout MMORPG star. Turbine Inc. sent out an announcement today stating that it's five month old MMO has already amassed over a million members, though it's tough to discern how many players are paying the publisher.
Turbine does tout a handful of stats regarding revenue and paid subscribers, like the fact that the "paid subscriber base has more than doubled" since launch, that players are making purchases "at three times the industry average," and that the game's revenue has jumped over 500 percent since September. It feels like we're one variable away from figuring out the equation. Of course, there's a chance that Turbine might reveal to us how many paid subscribers there are in Dungeons & Dragons Online -- that's why we sent a query to Turbine -- but trying to figure it out seems like a pretty fun exercise in and of itself.
