Funcom: Wii U perfect for MMO genre

Funcom, the studio behind upcoming MMO Secret World, has suggested that the Wii U system with its unique controller would be perfect for an MMO.

"Wii U could be the first real console on which running an MMORPG without compromise is plausible," Funcom’s lead content designer Joel Bylos told Official Nintendo Magazine.

"The controller is perfect for lining up those rows of hotbars that are essential in most MMOs. A customizable touchscreen interface combined with the 3D spatial movement of a console controller could be a winner."

Bylos seemed to just be speculating on the prospect, with no confirmation that the developer/publisher would actually consider putting the hardware to the test in such a manner.

That said, with most attempts at console MMOs falling flat on their faces, the thought is certainly intriguing.
