I'm trying to grasp your comment.

How is it designed for console controls when the only platforms mentioned are:
Launching on PC first
Followed by Android/iOS released 6 months later
Followed by Vita released another 6 months later

And PC 2012, Vita 2013 are literally the only platforms announced. At least according to the games wiki.

It probably will be designed with a gamepad in mind. That really isn't a stretch given the series lineage and the Vita announcement. I mean, I certainly expect the Vita version to use the sticks and buttons mainly rather then depending on the touch screen, as the iOS version would obviously have to do.

That said, I don't have any idea why that would be a bad thing. DC Universe plays great with a gamepad, as does TERA. If the game sucks, well...I doubt whether or not it can use a controller will be the cause.

I am more mystified by the implication that there are somehow many console controller MMOs. Are there a bunch hiding somewhere that I have never heard of? I can think of like 7(?) MMOs that have support for controllers. I am sure there is more, but hardly a huge number.
