The answer is yes, but it depends on the MMORPG, and what it offers to the player.

PS2 has had mmorpgs as well in the past with games such as Everquest Online Adventures and Final Fantasy 11, all great successes.

PS3 blew me away with DC universe online.

I honestly can't wait what deveoplers have in store for us with the PS4. Especially SOE, which is one of the flew people to actually launch successful mmo games the past few years.
