Would League of Legends have worked on home consoles?

Generally, when it comes down to MMORPG titles many people believe that they are much better suited for computers and laptops that utilize Microsoft Windows or the macOS.  The League of Legends game which was released back in 2009 is one of the most well known MMORPG titles of today.  If League of Legends was released for PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 it would have never achieved the level of success that it did during the early 10’s.


Also, when it comes down to gaming the first person shooter and the RPG genre had started to become very popular during eat 10’s.  MMORPG titles such as League of Legends could have easily been overshadowed if they were released on home consoles.  In terms of sales Riot Games had managed to make over $624 million in 2013 which was not short of impressive.  It’s also known that League of Legends had managed make $1.6 billion in revenue in 2015 while continuing to be one of the world’s highest grossing video games of the 10’s.  In theory having League of Legends on home consoles probably would have sounded like a great idea in theory.  But in practice League of Legends most likely would not have had the success that it did since 2009.
