 Now those fans wanting to get in on MMO's will do so from the Console and due their limited nature, especially the lack of a proper communication tool (the keyboard and chat system) it becomes a boring game.  That's my 2c though and I could be wrong but I seriously doubt it.

Since people are confused about what i replying to. This makes no mention of actual game play and this is the statement i was replying to with the keyboard accessory post.

I get it.  A console wont allow gamer's to key bind and macro their way to elite status. Trust me i understand. We aren't talking about the ability to use keyboard/mouse for combat and movement. He specifically brought up communication and chat..

First off, if you or anyone is playing Skyrim on a PS3 when there is a computer handy to take into account mods, well then you are playing the game wrong.  Even the little mods make dramatic improvements to Skyrim.  I cannot imagine playing vanilla Skyrim....and I sure cannot imagine playing it on PS3 with the issues that system has with that game.

 

Bethesda clearly designed Skyrim on a console.  The UI tells you that, plus the inability to remap certain keys on a keyboard will also reinforce that idea.

 

PCs are better than consoles because the top end PCs are more powerful.  Right now, with the newer consoles coming out the gap is closer, but eight months after the consoles are released will come the next generation of powerful PC hardware.  And in case you did not notice, you cannot upgrade a console.  Two years down the line, those consoles are woefully obsolete.  I am not talking about people with 400$ PCs, I am talking about the large PC market who have medium range systems to ultra high end systems.  We like to upgrade.  We like to get better stuff as time goes on.

 

When you design a MMO on a console, you have to design to the lowest specification.  And that never can change because the console, by definition, never can change.

 

And if you have ever played a MMO you know one thing.  They all change.  If a game is good it will last three plus years and the changes come.  They take into account new graphics upgrades.  LOTRO went from DX9, to DX10 to DX11 and it shows in many ways.  Cannot do that on a console.

 

Also, MMOs that have consoles do no share the same servers with PCs.  Why should PC people get shafted with a subpar design AND not even play on the same servers with console people.  Talk about totally alienating a massive gaming market, especially since the vast majority of MMO players play them on PCs.

 

You can also add mods, or UI changes.  Is there a MMO out there that does NOT let you change the UI?  If there is one, nobody plays it.  Even SWTOR had to implement UI chang-a-bility.

 

Try as they like, the game developers cannot get rid of PC systems.  Why?  Because this is America and this is land where it's down right a God given right to have something better than the guy sitting next to you.  There will always be PCs, and they will always be superior to consoles because they represent the American way of doing business.  Competition, change, and the ability to do better than someone else.

You are aware that consoles have had keyboard/mouse support since playstation 2 right?

They have usb ports. as long as your controller is charged you can chat and play with keyboard/mouse all you want. Hell ps3 even had a nice nifty little Qwerty keyboard attachment to make typing while playing a lot easier. Anyone who has used a mobile phone with a Qwerty keyboard can type as much as they like in any game.

Also most of these new mmos from videos i have seen(games like The Division and Destiny) will feature voice chat.

Qwerty Keyboard accessory http://www.amazon.com/PS3-Wireless-Keypad-Playstation-3/dp/B001ENPDJA

but any usb keyboard will work on them most likely.

Your point is moot because the vast majority of console users use controllers, not mouse and keyboard. So the gameplay and it's future developement will be severely handicapped because of controllers.

My point isnt moot. I addressed his statement that without a keyboard you cannot socialize like you can in other mmo's. Clearly console's have had keyboard support for 10 years+. Nice try disproving what i proved tho. On second thought maybe i should have underlined/highlighted the part i was relying to or just quote that area of his post :). 

I understand your point. The problem is pc gamers are under the misconception that all mmo's require huge ui's and a ton of abilities. EQOA had a limited UI and was more then playable. DCUO has a UI that works well with controllers. GW2 would easily be playable on a controller for either console. The games have and can succeed on a controller. 

Most people complaining about console mmo';s have no idea what they are talking about. There have only been 3-4 console mmo's. If the game is based off controls of a single player rpg(TESO) or the game is based off action combat and not standing around alt tabbing and hitting 0-9 with a few ctrl's and shifts here and there they have all the need to be good on consoles.

"Edited because i didn't wanna to seem like i was just trolling"

you are missing the point of needing the kb+m

its not for chatting in game.

 

its a more complex and robust set of possibilities while playing

i map all 16 buttons on my mouse... and still use 1-6 on my keys as well as qweasd

 

no game designed for a console will support that... because I would have a clear advantage over a console controller player.

 

even fps games have better control and accuracy on KB+M over console versions

Your post would make sense if the newest MMOs still needed 6 hot-bars with 72 abilities like WOW, Rift, etc.. They don't. The Secret World, GW2, Neverwinter, to name just soe recent ones, as well as ESO--right from the first time they talked about their interface several months ago--are not like that.

The modern trend for a couple of years now has been to give you a ton of abilities to choose from but only let you slot 8 or so as active at any given time. Sort of like the way action RPGs like Diablo, Torchlight, etc. have always been. From the first moment they revealed how the ESO UI would work, long before any console announcement, the interface was going to work like this:

1. mouse click: weapon/shield ability

2. mouse hold and release: powered up version of above

3. hot-bar (that auto-hides when not in use:) 7 other abilities/potions of your choosing

4. a modifier to switch to a second set of 7 abilities on the fly

That's it.

Now you may not like this modern trend in MMOs (I happen to like it) but it's happening in MMOs with no console presence also like the other 3 I mentioned above.

Like you, I also use a programmable mouse (Cyborg MMO 7) and I routinely bind up to 14 things on it also. Since I started doing that, I actually find MMOs where those 14 binds + the usual Q, E, R binds are not enough (WOW) are a pain when I actually have to click on a hot-bar ability. I'm lucky in that my mouse makes using all 14 binds quite easy. But that spoils me to the point where I find needing more than 14 a royal PITA.

TSW, GW2, NW and ESO can all easily be controlled with a game controller. Anyone who knows that will naturally wonder about using the KB to chat since that is actually the one and only disadvantage of playing (on a console or PC) with a gamepad. In MMOs I have played on PC where I've had friends using gamepads (all of the above + Tera) they all also prefer to chat in Vent for obvious reasons. Vent usage in MMOs is not just for groups, raids and PVP any longer. Many guilds do most of their casual socializing in Vent also with other channels for groups. I expect voice communication will be pretty well a requirement for any serious console MMO play. It's actually the PC version that needs extra things (the KB) because there are still many old fuddy-duddys who won't use vent at all. It's the PC players who require the old-fashioned legacy KB control.

And if the above isn't enough, Zmax has also said that the XB1, the PS4 and the PC/Mac players will all play in their own separate megaserver - there will be 3 of them. So... sorry OP, you and your brother won't be able to play together unless you're using the same platform.

PSU was on PS2 and PC on the same server. Also TESO will have PC , Mac and Xbox One on the same server.

Wrong. Go on over to the official forums and catch-up on news: 3 separate megaservers.

IMO, the console is like the kids table at Thanksgiving dinner.  It's not hate but pecking order.

Well isn't your brother in for a surprise if he buys a XBOX One... Has to be connected to the internet... and its watching.... always watching. 

As for why the PC Gamer doesn't like consoles. Well for one Console ports are always horribly done since they are dumbed down for the controller. 

Another reason being MMO's in particular are held back because of the low tech that gets put in them. 

Sorry but the CPU is built for tablets and the GPU is like a 100$ card... and it isn't even on the same level as the card it is modeled after. Anyone saying the PS4 and XBOX One are medium line PCs don't know anything about tech or pricing of tech. 

You could build a medium line PC for about 500-600$ that would crush the PS4 and XBOX One. 

"In the immediate future, we have this one, and then we’ve got another one that is actually going to be – so we’re going to have, what we want to do, is in January, what we’re targeting to do, this may or may not happen, so you can’t hold me to it. But what we’re targeting to do, is have a fun anniversary to the Ilum shenanigans that happened. An alien race might invade, and they might crash into Ilum and there might be some new activities that happen on the planet." ~Gabe Amatangelo

The more fans from Skyrim, Oblivion and Morrowind that can play ESO, the better, in my opinion.

My thoughts exactly.

As someone stated above, and from what I have been reading (posts, forums,thread). The big fear is that the game will suffer do to the port to console because of how lacking game controllers are of buttons compaired to a Keyboard and mouse. But from everything I read/heard, they are porting it from PC to console, so the UI issue should not be a problem. And really we dont need 32 keys to make a game engaging and fun! Look at Torch Light 2, D1-3, games like that those are hella fun and have a minmal UI.
