KOTOR MMORPG?

KOTOR MMO in development? has speculation from the rumors section of the new print issue of EGM Magazine suggesting BioWare may be at work on an MMORPG based on Knights of the Old Republic, their much-loved Star Wars RPG. The reason for drawing this inference is not provided, nor are any other details, though the sub-headline calls this a console title, even though MMOGs more typically reside on PCs.

Of course it will be one HELL of a game. It's bioware. Their shit is gold. But I flat out REFUSE to buy a console. My favorite game company leaving PC gaming, and as I said, leaving PC Gamers, those that made them what they are now, after such a legacy. Pissed me off good.

Bioware released the original KOTOR on Xbox well before it was released for PC. This isn't something new for them.

And in all fairness, it's a good move. The MMO market has been huge for PC gaming, and is relatively untapped in console games... a AAA MMO title for a console could be huge (although I'd prefer cross-platform, since that worked with FFXI).

I've been curious how Xbox Live would affect game companies and their efforts at putting MMO's out for the the 360; without the same front end I wonder if they'll favor the PS3 for that kind of online content.

I prefer my PC to my consoles, but don't sell them short. A good game is a good game regardless of what you use to play it, and the PS3 already supports USB keyboards and mice... it's a good setup for an MMO.
