When this game was announced, I said, why can’t this be for the PS3. I had already decided that I will get it for the PC, but there was part of me that was longing to enjoy it on my favorite console. Luckily for me, and probably many of you, Eurogamer asked about just that. EA purchased Bioware and we all know EA releases everything for every platform imaginable. In order to prevent any misquotes or causing too much or too little hope for this idea coming to fruition, here is a direct quote:

“We’ve got this product, and we’ve got Warhammer at play,” he continued, “So we’re trying to look at the primary research required to understand how would you deploy it, what the client size looks like, how big is the back-end, what the play experience looks like… Once we’ve got some of those questions answered, we’ll be able to decide which is the right play to go after.”

When asked if he was specifically referring to SWTOR and Warhammer Online, Gibeau replied, “They’re both under consideration.” However, he added, “We’re not really in a place to commit or announce anything specific with regards to those.”

The crafty ninjas in the room likely picked up that they are considering Warhammer on consoles as well. That is definitely good news. Bring on the MMOs publishers, the console fanbase awaits.
