The Old Republic "under consideration" for console, says Gibeau

Speaking to Eurogamer at today's Star Wars: The Old Republic reveal in San Francisco, EA online boss Frank Gibeau said that both the BioWare MMO and Warhammer Online may make the move to console.

"They're both under consideration," he said, although he added: "We're not really in a place to commit or announce anything specific with regards to those."

The exec explained that many factors needed to be assessed before making a concrete decision.

"We've got this product, and we've got Warhammer at play," he said.

"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."
