Daily Blogg: WoW on ipod touch and iphone

As an ipod touch user and massive warcraft geek i gotta say i thought this had to be a fake...

...i may however be very very wrong

There were early rumours about the World of Warcraft (WOW) coming to iPhone but then nothing happened. This time, we have a video that seems more like a beta version of WOW running on the iPhone.

A combination of 11 million WOW gamers and more than 20 million iPhone units could mean that it could be quickly become one of the hottest iPhone games.

I was happily winding my way through Touch Arcade when I stumbled upon a video that shows the WOW game running on the iPhone. I am a huge fan of the game and have spent months behind this amazing game. The news that it’s coming on iPhone and iPod touch is enough to revive my damned sole and to go look for another worthy quest! To Arms!

The credible part to this story comes from the fact that the game is shown to be running on the Vollee client application.

Vollee develops software that enables PC game to be played on mobile devices; it does so by using the VolleeX engine, which converts the audio and video output into streaming video format. Hopefully meaning the bulk of the client will be on your home PC or on there server whith a minimal client package on your iphone or ipod touch.

The fact that Vollee is in partnership with Activision Blizzard, Makers of WOW who have announced support for iPhone and iPod touch makes this story even more convincing.
