What does Blizzard have to do with a console MMo? Sony had one on the PS2 last gen and will ahve one onPS3 this gen.Sorry but just because Blizzard makes the most successful so far does not mean that nobody else can make one. No decent MMO is free. They all cost money. Sony charges for everyone of theirs just like Blizzard does. Blizzard isnt evil and trying to steal your money. If you had played Wow you would already know this. Sure they charge for their games but I got more free stuff my first year playing WoW then I ever did in 5 years of playing EQ.

...both Phantasy Star Online for Dreamcast as well as FFXI for PC and definitely see MMO's being successful on consoles eventually. It will be a matter of preparation with a few sprinkles of luck when the first REALLY big console MMO takes off.
