WoW on XBOX 360...ASA!

With a subscriber base of 6 million, World of Warcraft is the caliber of franchise that Microsoft is after. Well, maybe not anymore. Blizzard COO Paul Sams has made his company's stance clear, stating today, "We do not have any plans to take WoW to Xbox 360."

Sams criticized the Xbox Live architecture for being too protected from outside influence. As such, he had his doubts about the prospect of Xbox 360 and PC gamers being able to share their experiences if a console version of WoW was ever released. However, Sams did admit that Blizzard isn't entirely opposed to developing for the Xbox 360 and believes that the MMO genre will blossom on consoles once developers overcome the limitations of the joypad.
