Mar 15th 2007 11:53AM When talking about costs/profits it should also be taken into consideration that in addition to the XBL subscription fee you pay for that service...MS would also probably charge a monthly fee just for the WoW game itself. They did the same thing with Phantasy Star Online when it came out. The monthly fee was $9 if I remember correctly and that game was pretty lame IMO. There were still alot of people playing it though. For a great game like WoW...not only would people pay their XBL fee..but I'm sure they'd be willing to pay $15/month for WoW also. If MS lets Blizz get a cut of that subscription fee then you're talking alot of money. Even if Blizz kept the whole fee..MS would still make a ton of cash of the peripherals and new subscribers they'd steal from Sony and Nintendo.
Keep in mind...that moving WoW to 360 and XBL has been rumored before 360 was even heard of. So dont let this new batch of rumors trick you into believing it will happen any time soon.
I personally wouldnt mind it though. I play WoW and 360 games...so it wouldnt bother me one bit. If anything it might help lessen the idiotic tension between console and PC gamers. Neither group is better than the other.

Mar 9th 2007 6:41PM I know that I love tanking as a Warrior myself. My new Warrior is only at lvl 45 right now..but I've been focusing on speccing him for Protection and working hard and becoming an Armorsmith to help myself in this area. That being said...it's been extremely hard for me to hold the aggro in parties because of poorly managed AoE's my party members are casting.
My point being...that even when you get what you want out of the Warrior in your party...90% of the time somebody is refusing to let us do the job...so what difference does it make in the end?
