Microsoft Made Xbox Live Concessions To Bring World Of Tanks To Xbox 360 [Closed Beta Codes Inside]

GR: "At their PAX Prime 2013 booth, Wargaming laid out the way Microsoft has allowed them to redefine Xbox Live's rules and restrictions to bring the massive free-to-play sensation World of Tanks to Xbox 360." (PAX Prime 2013, World of Tanks, Xbox 360)

I see this on a lot of banner ads and oddly, it has driven me more away from the game than TO it. Am I wrong for thinking this way?

Not at all, I don't know who plays this game, but apparently it's somewhere around 70 million accounts.

This has to be one of the worst FTP games out. I would not want to be associated with this game if I was XBOX. They should try to get LOL its FTP, and its audience is still young enough to be effected by the constant bombardments of add placements.

Try to download the beta on xbox live, as soon as you hit that button it brings you to xbl payment page :P (if you have a silver account) so not really F2P

No game at the end of the day is free to play. You have to purchase the hardware you are playing it on as well as the electricity to run it etc.

Xbox live is just a service you pay for. If you don't like it there are other options available.

I quit enjoy WOT but it plays a little bit different to the PC version. Especially with the zooming. Need to give it some more play time to see if I can adjust properly for the controls

I'm with you there. I use AdBlockPlus now but before I did those ads pissed me off to no end. The game looks quite fun but I will never play it because those ads made me hate it.

So basically all they're did was give a free month of Gold access?

Is that in addition to the free month they already give out for buy a 360 which will likely carry over to the xB1?

"With World of Tanks at version 8.7 on PC, Microsoft had to allow the new Wargaming West based in Chicago the freedom to iterate on their port to Xbox 360. That's why Microsoft has announced that it's rolling back expensive fees for certification and patching for developers on Xbox."

I guess you missed that paragraph, so I posted it for you.

All I got from that is that MS cut them the same deal on patching and updating they later applied to all indie developers.

Defiance 360 has been doing this for a while. They send out patches for that game 2 or 3 times a week.
dbjj12088  +   600d ago
Yes, in addition to the month you get when you buy a 360. Plus what malokevi said.
