Isn't it the same with MW2? It's motivating players to play longer by giving them better equipment the longer they play. Then you prestige and it all starts again. I guess this is a way nearly all genres will bind players in the future, to give them better/nicer stuff the longer they play. People expect some form of incentive for their spent time, fun alone is not enough.
Actually I'm really considering playing WoW again. I didn't play since 2008 before WotLK came out. Being lvl 70 and doing f$ck all but raid content and farming money to pay flasks wasn't too much fun but now I'd have 10 lvl to catch up (and another 5 in December when Cataclysm rolls out), new classes to play and a lot of new content.
I mean, it's 13 EUR a month. That's appr. 1 ticket for the cinema or a bit more than half of a BluRay movie.
