It's interesting that this should be brought up because I've heard in the past year or so various articles questioning whether console's are dead due to the ever growing app games industry. It is nonsense.
Yes, consoles are more viable for the masses due to the fact that there is not a concern about system requirements and paying large sums of money for upgrades until the next console generation.
As for MMO's, well yes they are naturally best on PC. However, MMO's can be possibly even more system orientated than the offline games, and these MMO's are subject to change and their system requirements can change because of it.
I don't think there will be a mass migration of MMO's to console anytime soon but if FFXIV is a success on PS3, where both PS3 and PC users share the same servers (unlike DCUO) then we may well see more developer interest in bringing MMO's to consoles. Because after all, if everybody's systems run the same and have the same requirements then you're going to attract a larger audience for your game.
