Another console MMORPG bites the dust?

Problem is, consoles and MMOs are just not a good fit. I mean, server side alone is a nightmare. Forget about patches. Client side you're looking at making the game have a lot less depth to accommodate console control schemes, and making your PC users roll their eyeballs.

It'll be interesting to see if DCUO crashes and burns or sets the new MMO console standard.

I think the reason for the console speculation was due to the control system, which appears to be very hand-controller friendly from the info known thus far.

I think in addition to alot of the technical problems, a huge deference is the control scheme. The companies don't want to re-invent a control scheme and they don't want to require players to go spend $30 on a usb keyboard and mouse.

Sad thing is, alot of people have a usb keyboard and a mouse they could use to just plug in and go.
