This past summer in a Daily Grind, we were discussing the issue of “dumbing down” in MMORPGs, specifically in World of Warcraft, when a couple of our readers pointed out that Legion’s “streamlining” might not be so much about game design as it is about console preparation.
I know there are folks out there who’ve been playing World of Warcraft on a tricked-out tablet setup for years; I’ve even streamed it to my TV to play on my sofa a few times just for kicks. But a presence on a real console? That would be an interesting day — and interesting competition for the MMORPGs that already exist on console, like The Elder Scrolls Online, Neverwinter, and Final Fantasy XIV (just to name a few).
So what do you think: Will Blizzard ever port World of Warcraft to console? To the pollmobile!
