    What will be the first major MMO on a tablet device?

    So what MMO will bring their franchise to tablet computing first? I always thought the first one to do so will have a huge advantage as they would be the first to venture out that way. I know their are some lesser known mmo's available but they just don't have an established franchise to pull it off.

    Making a good MMO on a tablet is hard. The touch screen can make controls feel bad and if you use a keyboard for it than why even use the tablet?

    Maybe at some point in the future it will happen but it would have to over come a lot of difficulties first.

    It is 'possible' if for example you use a Windows 8 tablet with the keyboard, then just maybe some wireless mouse or something may work, and you can just use whatever internet is on the tablet.
    Mouse wouldn't be completely necessary I suppose.

    However, there is a hardware restrictions, as there is no 'actual VGA card' on mobile devices yet.
    There is also RAM (1GB is not enough).
    HDD space can be supported via a micro or normal SD card.
    Then there's your fun battery life, which I suppose can be be prolonged via battery packs or newer battery tech.

    Wow is playable on a tablet i think. And with the new windows 8 tablets every mmorpg i theory could be played on one.
    Only thing i am now waiting for is to see how titan would deal with this.

    I never understood how the idea of a lobby + instanced playing area = MMO.
    It was what caused Guild Wars 1 to be questionable as an MMO.

    ORder and Chaos is an mmo that I recently downloaded, I liked it, but its still clunky, plays really nice on my galaxy note though. http://orderchaosonline.com/


    Only reason I havent been playing it so much is because of MoP and Ive been loving a dungeon crawler called Heroes call.http://toucharcade.com/2012/06/15/heroes-call-review/

    RuneScape if you consider that a major MMO. They're already working on it

    I wouldn't really call 4 people massively multiplayer, by that categorization every game that has online play and a lobby is an mmo.
    Her hall is called Eljudnir,
    her dish is Hunger,
    her knife is Famine,
    her slave is Lazy,
    and Slothful is her woman servant.

    There is a keyboard set up for Windows 8 that can be used. It's one of the few things they did from the start for their new tablets. It's also really not all that bulky from the looks of it.
    As for mouse, /shrug. Maybe some bluetooth would work?
