No World of Warcraft for Xbox 360

Blizzard Entertainment has slammed the door shut on any possibility that World of Warcraft will appear on the Xbox 360. In an interview with MCV UK, Blizzard’s COO Paul Sams said the company has no plans to take WoW to the Xbox 360. Sams explained that it is very important that WoW players be able to interact with each other throughout all platforms and that the Xbox Live architecture is, “very protected from all sorts of outside influence” which makes shared game play tough.

Some online role-playing games have been ported to consoles in the past, but more complicated ones require players to navigate dozens of menus and map hot-buttons for numerous commands and spells – something that is easy on a keyboard, but difficult on a gamepad.
