Maybe there’s method in Wizards’ madness after all

File this one under “Well, that’s interesting”.

I just read about the new direction Microsoft is taking Silverlight (previously decried as being their Flash-wannabe system that never really took off), and it’s heading….. onto the Xbox 360. You can read it here too, folks.

This could, maybe, possibly open the door for Wizards of the Coast’s web-based Character Builder to find its way onto that platform as well, perhaps as a fully-fledged front end for a whole console-based uber-epic D&D game.


All pure speculation on my part, of course. A mere flight of fancy. Nothing more.

But still……

It could happen. Couldn’t it?

(also note the sideways mention of Silverlight on the iPad. Also interesting, no?)

    It’d be great if this was what WotC knew would happen all along.

    If they were thinking ahead, and add to this that the VT will be web-based too, then you may be able to play D&D through Xbox Live. That would make ME happy, at least :).

    I also heard that Silverlight is the basis of the new Windows 7 Phone OS.

    I didn’t notice a sideways mention of Silverlight on the iPad. Must have missed it.

      Microsoft announced that the next version of Silverlight will have “IIS Media Services 4.0 for smoother streaming to WP7 and iPad” – implying that Silverlight will make it onto the iPad.

      Maybe :)
