It may seem like publisher Electronic Arts is giving all the MMORPG love to PCs lately with Mythic's Warhammer Online and the upcoming BioWare MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic. However, EA executive Frank Gibeau said that both titles are "under consideration" for home console versions.

In Gibeau's interview with EuroGamer, he said:

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

Considering the home console roots of the Knights of the Old Republic titles, the universe of BioWare's upcoming MMO, a console version of the title could be possible. As for Warhammer, it would be an interesting take if console owners could play with the PC community online. But, let's say, if EA goes forward with bringing these two MMO titles to consoles, what will happen to the 360's Champion's Online or the PS3's DC Universe Online? Hmm...

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is now available for the PC.
