Runescape on Game Consoles, in the Horizon?

Jagex CEO, Mark Gerhard, believes that free-to-play games like Runescape will make its appearance on gaming consoles in the future.

Jagex CEO, Mark Gerhard, recently talked about the possibility of their famous free-to-play RPG – Runescape – to appear on video game consoles. Looking optimistic, the CEO hopes that the “Big 3″ console manufacturers – Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo – will open their systems to accommodate games that rely on large community and free-to-play payment schemes.

According to Mark Gerhard, there is a reason such free-to-play games like Runescape has not yet been accommodated by console manufacturers. That is because the companies are unwilling to enable their gamers to play with another user on a different hardware. Nevertheless, Nintendo confirmed in the past that their new console – the Wii U – will feature a more robust and developer-friendly online system.

With Runescape still growing and becoming popular, and cross-hardware interactions are being seen on number of PC and PS3 games, a free-to-play game in a console might come to reality in just a matter of time.
