BioWare: Cross platform MMOs not likely to take off

Cross platform MMOs are not likely to take off, according to Star Wars: The Old Republic writer Daniel Erickson.

Speaking to about the future of cross-platform MMOs, Erickson explained: "While there's always been a push for cross-platform gaming, I don't really see MMOs being the place that it takes off as a pure implementation. In a community where a one point difference in DPS per character classes can cause major outcries, it's hard to imagine accepting wholly different input devices.

"So until consoles have keyboard/mouse setups standard and enough users willing to find a way to use them in the living room, I imagine we keep the core game to one type of platform each."

it could take off in time but currently I can't see it working either, MMO's are still very much PC gamer territory. the console market need a solid MMO first then they can look into cross-platforming.

Bioware need to make a successful, long lasting MMO first before they can make any kind of comments.

Tell that to FFXI, which has been chugging along as a cross platform title for nearly 10 years.
