Okay, so, rambling run-on sentence aside, there's a few problems with RS on console. If you think simply using a left stick for cursor and right stick for camera is enough, you're sadly mistaken. You'll also need a keyboard. Otherwise, good luck chatting, and using abilities efficiently is out of the question. On PC, even if you don't use keybinds for action bar(for example, I certainly don't), you can get away with using the mouse just fine in most situations because it's quick and responsive. Even making selections from the bank, inventory, worn equipment will be difficult. An analog stick won't be precise in the same way. You would constantly struggle with the controls, then you'd whine and moan about how it doesn't work.

I know from experience that this is a bad idea. For fun, I actually slapped Runescape onto my Steam Library a while back, and mapped inputs to my Steam Controller. I tried using the analog stick as the mouse, camera controlled by one of the trackpads. Was horrible. I switched them around, and the camera was easier to control, but cursor was still painfully imprecise. Runescape is NOT good for console. There is literally no way to make it so. Jagex would have to re-make the game entirely from scratch to make that happen, and even then, I have a feeling it would be sub-optimal.

Edit: Also, Mobile will definitely bring in more players than a hypothetical PS4 version of the game. Mobile games are WAY more popular than console games, mostly due to the fact that many more people have smartphones than home video game systems. So, your assertion that a PS4 release will bring in more players is quite false. Who would want to play Runescape on PS4 when they can already play FFXIV, a graphically and mechanically superior MMORPG?
Why RS Mobile is a stupid idea

This is not a future game update, and it is a duplicate thread. As such, I am locking it.
