How World of Tanks Is Revolutionizing Xbox

World of Tanks has become a stunning success, with over 60 million players registered worldwide. Wargaming has grown, too, and now has 1,600 employees, with 15 offices around the world (recently opening a Tokyo office). The company's World of Warplanes has just entered open beta, and World of Warships is on the way as well. The Xbox 360, and potentially other consoles, represents new territory for Wargaming to conquer. The [a]list daily caught up with Victor Kislyi to ask him about this surprising announcement.

I watched a stream of this, it appears there is no bullet drop on the tanks? I will try it on my 360 never the less, just seems odd.

PC version has bullet drop and more "realistic". More tactics than drive and gun too.

I tried it on the PC a long time ago, played it once and never went back, it's too slow and if you get killed early in a match you sit there for an hour waiting othe match to end!
Clearly a lot of people love it, I personally don't, and I don't think it will find much of an audience on consoles.

You just exit the battle and enter a new one with a different tank dumb ass!

The game has improved a lot over the year, you should try it again.

I never understand the appeal of this game, I hope it doesn't seem like I'm bashing it or anything if you like that's cool. I watched a few streams of it, constantly seeing the commercial on tv it doesn't seem like I could get into it. I do want to try it because I'm curious if anyone here is a World of Tanks nut please tell me a few things about it why you enjoy it :)

Because tanks with big guns are cool. Its a surprisingly deep game with lots of unlocks & customisation.

If you try to be a lone wolf you will not last long, teamwork is the key.

If you are into COD, WOT is not for you.

I play it and like the game for what it is, It is surprisingly deep taking into account penetration values of guns, armour angling, camo rating etc

You also need to know what your tank can and cannot do and the same also goes for the enemies tank.

Basically It is not a pick up and play game and requires you do to some homework on your tank. It is not the most inviting or forgiving game and the grind is long but if you have patience and appreciate tactical knowledge based gameplay then this is right up your alley.

If you want something casual to jump onto, this is not for you.

On a side note I can't wait for warthunder to release its tank combat for some competition between the two as War Thunder already trounces world of warplanes so it is going to be very interesting.
