Start/Select - Wii U out for Christmas, no BlizzCon in 2012

If you were hoping for a tablet-based Nintendo console in time for Christmas this year, you're in luck. If you were hoping to attend Blizzard's annual fan gathering, not so much.

Hm... so trying to push out expansions more quickly is straining the WoW devs, trying to finish Diablo 3 is straining those devs, and the Starcraft devs are behind on "part 2" of Starcraft II. Perhaps this means that Diablo III and MoP will be pushed mid summer, leaving a Blizzcon event no ammunition for release information. As to the Wii U, I'm eager to see a launch line up. Based on how long it is taking Nintendo to pump out Zelda titles, we probably won't see a Wii U Zelda until late in the Wii U's life span.. probably 2016. That's a rather depressing thought, as I'm thoroughly enjoying Skyward Sword.

Since they joined Activision they haven't done anything. The golden age is over, guys. Now all they'll do is 6hr story mode and big multiplayer just like Activision wants it.

Wtf are you people talking about? Blizzard are once again trying to make the best game possible and you hate that? dont you remember the failure of some of the most expected games this year like Rage? .. They are perfecting the game so people can play without bugs from the moment they install the game till they are sick of it (5 years into the future :D) Off cause they care about profits, same with every other company that make make games, the only difference is you are mad that they don't release a game sooner, why weren't you mad on the ppl behind Skyrim? How are they greedy all of a sudden? Diablo 3 crew have been working for years to bring you this, Wow expansions have been comming out every 2 years the past 7 years and the SC expansion is a warm welcome to the millions of SC2 fans out there ..

omfg where is D3 already screw it I'm having too much fun playing skyrim and MW to care..... Blizzard you know there is a line where greed starts to "prepare" you for losing everything in the end right??!!! you do know that one should always balance things out, one should make sure that profit does not end up reducing quality and all that!!!! cause that will end badly, money wise and on every other level. Blizz!!! we used to have faith in you and that my friends no amount of profit is gonna bring back...

Once my Favorite company Blizzard fell to low. They became to greedy to stomach. And they are not even trying to hide it.

If the Wii U is "twice as powerful" as the Xbox 360, that may inspire me to get one, but it needs good third party support. If the Battlefield franchise won't bring out games on the Wii U, I can safely say I will never buy it.
