If Diablo 3 does well do you see WOW in the future for console?

Even if they worked out a good control scheme for a controller, or allowed m&k, trying to play WoW without addons is pretty hardcore. I would be very surprised, first if it even got released, and even more if they allowed addons.

You pretty much need a damage meter to know if you're doing things right or wrong, as either a damage class or a healer. There are other mods that are almost essential, but they largely depend on what you do after leveling up.

There's just no way WoW would work on consoles. I've played it a LOT on PC and to do it properly you need some pretty good reflexes and have to have a fairly large amount of hotkeys available at any given time. As a Mage just in my "normal" rotation I had about 5 spells, 2-3 evasive moves, and another 3 or so things I would have to keep applying to myself. That's all in pretty rapid fire...

I can see a game set in Warcraft's world on XB1/PS4, but it would really have to be completely redone.

All the hotkeys you could ever want right at the tips of your thumbs.

Just require the chatpad for the game, it wouldn't be the first time that a game came with a requirement to buy a piece of hardware separately.

That's another issue, while WoW has come a long way with it's default HUD there's still the issue of even having it all there. On the PC you have quick access with a mouse to hover over it all or click things, etc etc.

If that could be done (not sure if you can use it to access anything in-game...doesn't it always bring up a new window within the game?) then it would certainly help. There still the issue though of needing to fly anywhere on the screen at any given time, while at the same time spamming hotkeys. I was also more of a "clicker" where I'd use hotkeys but for a lot of my stuff I'd just move the mouse around and click on spells.
