Play WoW with your Xbox 360 controller

360WowWorld of Warcraft is synonymous with the PC and the typical keyboard and mouse interface is the standard fare for playing this MMORPG. But have you ever wished that you could use a really good game controller to play this game?

Blue Orb, Inc announced that it is releasing a software package called SwitchBlade that will do just that. Switchblade will enable the use of an Xbox 360 controller to play WoW. The additional good news is that the software is free and can be downloaded from

Aaron Levin, Vice President of Business Development at Blue Orb said, "We all know that World of Warcraft is popular, but a lot of gamers are just hooked on the console controller experience. With SwitchBlade, they can relax on the couch with a gamepad instead of hunching over a keyboard and mouse."

According to the official press release, "In addition to its ‘plug and play’ pre-configured options, SwitchBlade is a highly customizable application. Experienced World of Warcraft players get extensive opportunities to reconfigure button mappings to match their unique style of play."

At the moment, only World of Warcraft is supported by the SwitchBlade software, but additional PC games will be added to the list in the near future.
