And that's one of Planetside flaws. I love the idea of Planetside, but the execution was/is horrible.
And I don't see them going for the console with a MMO. Reason for this is alot of people in the Asian markets play at cyber cafes. Now I have no clue about home internet access in that market, but I'd be willing to guess it's not as good as other countries.
As for a RTS MMO..... it's an interesting idea but as someone else said there are alot of gameplay issues I could cropping up, but who knows.
