Hello all,

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, just move if needed. :)

So I don't want to open a can of worms specially if it been opened before, I am a long standing player although yes I have taken breaks. I have always played with mouse and keyboard, even when I play on xbox/playstation (they are connected just in case ;))

My question is we hsve HTML support within the game unless my client is that old or it has updated without me knowing!! but now that xbox and playstation are supporting HTML without major issues why can't we allow access to connect to the server via a media download straight from Jagex or use a "3rd Party Supplier" for example "Playboxie". Playing via there support and authorisation from your account linked via main website for console support would disable many problems with botting and as the console buttons are set via the devoloper of the game within the code meaning the one input one output would be followed.

Give me your ideas and lets see if it could happen without major work to game code meaning multiple years of development for something which ends in separation. Want to keep the community together i offer a solution

You are being blind sided it could be a possibility think how much is your personal home all connected? most people dont even need to stand up to turn there lights on for them or even sort the heating.

My day job is being a chef why would i not want to play the odd time now and again while sitting on the xbox or playstation. You may say your "you have to much money so you can have what you want" yes maybe I do earn alot of money for what i do but most families whille have at least one console in there homes think about how families could come together?

Your right i don't know enough about devopling in able to do this myself but it must be possible.

let me know when you would like to talk without abuse ;)

Microsoft and Sony. Cross platform? Never going to happen and unless it's possible for both console versions to access to same servers as the PC and mobile versions this is a stupid idea.

Runescape would likely experience a boom in the existing playerbase if that was possible, but not if both console versions would be their own segregated communities - just like it is for any other MMO which originated on PC that's also on consoles.

Why does everyone want to play RuneScape on a console? It doesn't have enough buttons to be practical. The RS Wiki needs a hand, and Bwian's will gladly take the rest of your body!
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

The lack of buttons isn't a problem: Jagex would just have to be really creative and design a brand new control scheme exclusive to consoles. That might result in a version of the game that is more clunky and menu-driven than on PC, but given that RuneScape isn't the fastest paced game in the world it's doable. Jagex have even shown interest in doing it in the past.

The only reason we've not seen RuneScape on console already come down to the console ecosystem problems already raised in this thread. The day Sony and Microsoft agree to let developers put games on their platform which allow for a singular cross-platform community rather than a bunch of seperate isolated ones, is the day it will be possible and viable for Jagex to actually do.

There has been *significant* progress on that front recently, but it is still early days. Jagex have their hands full right now, and probably aren't in a good position to be looking at other systems they can port RuneScape to. Console RuneScape quite easily could happen, maybe during the next console generation, but not for some considerable time yet at least.

Final Fantasy XIV requires more input than RuneScape. It has a control scheme for controllers, although isn't great, is good enough to be a viable option for people. So Jagex are definitely able to make it practical, if they are capable enough.

I would be all for console versions of RuneScape, as the more people that are able to play it, the better. However, only if it was feasible/possible for Jagex to do so.
