Why is the max amount of accounts the eighth Mersenne prime?

What is so special about this [url=http://www.bungie.net/Account/Profile.aspx?memberID=2147483647]specific number[/url]? Why not 2147483648 maximum accounts? EDIT: Apparently [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2147483647#2147483647_in_computing]this is why[/url]. Also, it would take approximately 1956 years and 202 days at the current rate to reach the current maximum accounts. The limit will be reached at 3967 with the current rate of new accounts. [b]Extra info[/b] The daily average accounts made has dropped (become more accurate) to 596.7875 users per day. [Edited on 11.22.2012 7:05 AM PST]
