Can't There Be a Good Xbox MMO?

VGU.TV's Andrew Nino explores the sad legacy of MMO attempts on the Xbox and Xbox 360, and why massively multiplayer gameplay has had such a hard time getting by on Microsoft consoles.

MMOs and consoles aren't good friends.

kratos1234128d ago

DCUO is pretty good in my opinion and you can see that the devolpers are quit happy with what they have build on the ps3.

ab5olut10n4128d ago

i think it's just difficult to do mmo's on consoles in general

wwm0nkey4128d ago

PSO2, TERA, Defiance(is coming to 360) and maybe Elder Scrolls Online will work since it only has 5 action buttons.

Seriously though PSO2 and TERA need to come to PS3/360 or next gen systems at least.

InMyOpinion4128d ago

I have been wondering that all this gen.

Still amazed why they didn't create an MMO game where you play as your avatar. Give the accessories you can buy attributes etc.

theWB274128d ago

Dammit I was looking forward to True Fantasy Online back with the old box. Shed a tear when it got cancelled. It was to be my jump into the MMO arena. Sigh : (

Why is there no mention of Diablo 3?

kirbyu4168d ago

The only thing I don't like about SMB2 is the controls for picking up stuff is confusing.

kirbyu4168d ago

Also, Doki Doki Panic is a Nintendo game. So SMB2 isn't a copy, it's a localization.

Goodbye to a game that gave me quite a few memories. I met some people on PSU that I still play with today. Always sad to see a game go..... Thank you Phantasy Star Universe.

Griffin48714283d ago

Was a good game, and it should have been treated much better than Sega did.

Never played any phantasy star game but it seems as though I'm missing out.

How is the DS game ?
