Guild Wars, Among Other MMORPG's, Could Find Themselves On Consoles

Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPGs for short) have recently gained a lot of momentum. Games such as World of Warcraft and Guild Wars continue to suck in subscribers, who enjoy the games so much they sometimes lose almost all traces of a social life to play these games. The maker of Guild Wars has shown interest in getting their MMORPG onto consoles, which would greatly expand their market. However, one of the makers of Guild Wars also says that their current focus is for the PC platform, and they currently have no plans on getting the original Guild Wars onto a console. Perhaps the sequel will find it's way onto Microsoft and Sony gaming consoles.

Regardless of whether or not Guild Wars actually follows through, they do show a market trend of moving games towards consoles to tap their rather large market share.Source: 1Up

if guildwars comes to console on the same basis of being subscription free i can see that game being no.1 for a very long time, i can see it appearing on console sooner or later.

I would definitely buy Guild Wars if it comes to consoles, I love it on the PC, now I wonder how it'll look on my Xbox 360.

Guild Wars 2 is supposed to have a fully open environment like WoW, not just some select areas where people converge.

For some reason I keep thinking there's a Guild Wars 1, 2, & 3 already, but it's only Guild Wars, Factions, and Nightfall.

That'd be awesome. Is that actually confirmed ?

Yep, I read it in an interview in some gaming magazine. Guild Wars 2 is a whole new engine (or at least the first one revamped).
