No way! They're doing another MMO?!

I'm kind of sceptical against if it's possible to make a good MMO on console...

Dorjan3619d ago

I would disagree.

Final Fantasy XI really did a good job for a console. YOu should try it out!

just remember that gamepads CAN have more buttons than they actually seem to have, lets use the 360 pad for an example pressing A does action 1, holding left trigger and pressing A does action 2, holding right trigger and pressing A does action 3, holding left and right trigger and pressing A does action 4, might sound a little fiddly but its just like a shift key. And now both consoles have a mini keyboard attachment thing for typing I don't really see any reasons not to make a good mmo for consoles.

It is always hard. FFXI I think still to this day had the best console / PC midground UI.

It's all about the UI. There's so much information to convey.

I like the way Lotro is going and their approach. I do look forward to seeing what Turbine do on the consoles.
