I mean flocks of gamers would be running to buy the console at launch solely for WOW, which would then probably cause them to get into console systems then in which they would purchase more games.

Even if this rumour were true, why would they do this exactly? WoW came out in 2004 - even with expansions, it runs on 5 year old computers. I just can't see why WoW players would fork out the cash for a brand new console to play a game they can already play perfectly well. I used to play a lot of WoW, and there would be no way I'd buy a Wii U just to play it.

In any case, Activision Blizzard aren't going to spend resources porting WoW over, especially since the graphics are so old. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but a game with an 8 year old engine isn't exactly going to draw in the crowds, and if they were going to do any graphical updates it would have happened on the PC already.

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.

There is also a rumor that Halo Wii U is coming at launch too. My uncle knows someone who works for Nintendo that said it might be true! :O

Out of the three games that Blizzard pretty much exclusively does (WoW, Diablo and Starcraft) WoW is by far the least likely to be a Wii U title. Personally I'd be less surprised if they announced that the Wii U was getting Diablo, Starcraft and The Lost Vikings than WoW for the Wii U's launch. Hell, I'd be less surprised if Reggie came on stage at E3 and said Nintendo were going to build a robotic panda mounted doom canon and was dragged of stage by a couple of security guards dressed up as Storm Troopers.

edit: If Reggie does do that.... I totally called it ;)

If so it probably just would be the same old game with the same outdated graphics! Isn't it the highest of time to finally release a true sequel to World of warcraft, instead of yet another add-on?!

Would it be more believable if he said "I heard this from my insider source"? :D

No but seriously if blizzard were to make a better version of the game offering better graphics and fine tuning the gameplay a lot of gamers would go and buy the game. It is simply common sense, We are talking about the biggest game franchise on the planet with i think around 8 million players. Out of the 8 million players i would say 1 million of those are hardcore gamers. Then i would say that roughly 80% of those hardcore gamers that would mean around 800,000 console sold for one game, this is not including those would would jump to the franchise. This game would sell in the millions and i think it is pretty guaranteed. So i do not really understand the hate here, it's like saying the the new COD is coming to wii u.

Actually sorry there are over 12,000,000 accounts. That is tremendous. At least 2 million would buy this console solely for WOW.

This logic is absolutely unassailable.

i do that with famous faces like 1D,its what i call a smear campaign.I have to agree tactically it would sell consoles,and with its massive options it would be cool if the 3DS could talk to the wii u pad,for side scrolling options.

Wii U StarFox in Dx11.Yes please.

That's under the impression that there are 12,000,000 current players of WoW.

Stupid rumour is still stupid.

And those 2 (sic) million would throw the console out a day later on the basis of how crap MMOs transfer to consoles.

I know I am. There is no way even as much as I enjoy WoW would I trade playing WoW on my PC for a playing it on the Wii U. Even if WoW was a launch title for the Wii U I would still by a Wii U but I wouldnt by WoW on it.

And also that 12 million account thing isnt an accurate account for the number of people playing. Some people have multiple accounts.
