No Cross-Platform MMOs for Nintendo
Wouldn’t it be nice for all console players to be able to come together under the name of one mmorpg? If you don’t have a Nintendo Wii, it might be a possibility.
But Nintendo just isn’t okay with the co-mingling of consoles.
“It will be pretty difficult if you were to cross-platform [with the Wii] for a couple reasons,” Hiromichi Tanaka, Senior Vice President for Enix, said. “One is that Nintendo’s currently not allowing different cross-platform titles, and as you know, the resolution differences make it harder for us to make cross-platform games. Currently we’re not looking at Nintendo Wii as a platform.”
Open your arms Nintendo. Keep up with the innovation. But the good news for everyone else is that Square has something up its sleeve that is sure to surprise and delight.
