Funcom: Wii U Could Be the First Console to Run MMORPGs "Without Compromise"

03 Apr 2012

Funcom lead content designer Joel Bylos, speaking to Official Nintendo Magazine, has stated that the Wii U could be the first console to run games in the MMORPG genre "without compromise":
"Wii U could be the first real console on which running an MMORPG without compromise is plausible," said Bylos. "The controller is perfect for lining up those rows of hotbars that are essential in most MMOs. A customisable touchscreen interface combined with the 3D spatial movement of a console controller could be a winner."

I suppose I can see how the point of view makes sense, but I'm doubtful Nintendo will manage to attract MMO developers unless they manage to offer an actually solid network for once.
