Can the PS4 Be Great for MMOs?

The PlayStation 4 is set to launch by the end of this year, and it's going to be quite the piece of hardware. But is it going to be a good fit for MMOs? Larry Liberty, executive producer of DC Universe Online, certainly thinks so. He recently told NowGamer: "I would expect that, with all of the amazing features that have been announced for the next PlayStation, that it will be a great platform for MMOs."

Some MMO's sure but not all. Just imagine trying to play something like WoW on a controller. Yes I'm aware PS4 probably supports mouse and KB but then that is more things the consumer has to buy (assuming they don't own them).

I saw last night the demo of Final Fantasy XIV Online for PS3, it have a redesigned UI compared to the PC.

The interaction with the NPC's and other stuff in the game are not complicated, but is a MMO done right in a console.

It could be done there would be a way and if you are coding a game with the PS4 in mind then you would try to get round having a massive amount of keys to bind. I don't think you would want to attempt to put WoW on PS4 but future MMO's definatly

i for one wish for Marvel Heroes on PS4. that game needs a controller support more than microsoft needs new decision makers.

I'm pretty sure it will be a great machine for MMO next gen since sony's policy is more appealing for MMO developers.
