'The controller is perfect' for most MMO interfaces, says Joel Bylos
Funcom's Joel Bylos has weighed in on Nintendo's Wii U, claiming it might be the first console to play MMORPGs well.
"Wii U could be the first real console on which running an MMORPG without compromise is plausible," Bylos told Official Nintendo Magazine.
"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."
Funcom is currently developing MMO The Secret World, and has a great deal of experience in the medium, having produced titles like Anarchy Online and Age of Conan.
