The Xbox 360 has received some of the most successful PC titles lately and the beat goes on today with yet another widely popular PC game set to hit the console, World of Tanks.

In an exclusive interview, had the chance to sit down with TJ Wagner, who is the executive producer and creative director of World of Tanks, to talk about the journey he and Wargaming have been through since they made the decision to bring the game to the Xbox 360.

"On a whim, we developed an 8v8 tank demo in our Despair engine in Chicago in just three days with only a few developers to show the Wargaming group.

"It blew them away and started the whole deal that led to us becoming part of the Wargaming family.

"We kind of had the feeling at the time that the demo was about to change everything. That feeling still exists today for the 100+ of us at the Wargaming Chicago-Baltimore offices now that we are on the brink of release," Wagner said.

PC games releasing to the Xbox 360, like Diablo III and Minecraft, have enjoyed very strong success and World of Tanks looks to make a similar, if not more profound impact on the system. It's one of the most noticeable trends of late, PC games moving over into the console world, and consoles players are the ones reaping the benefits of games that have been perfected on PC before they even hit their own console.

If you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, you get World of Tanks for free and if you are a regular Xbox Live member, you receive a free seven-day trial.
