If you want to play a MOBA on a console in North America or Europe, your choices are pretty much confined to Smite and the beta version of Paragon, and that's about it.
But wait! League of Legends, the biggest MOBA in the world, is coming to consoles!
Well, console, as in one. In China.
Tencent Games, which is Riot Games' primary shareholder, recently showed off the TGP Box. Similar to a Steam box, it will run Tencent games, including League of Legends. At $549, it's a bit pricy, but it comes with Windows 10 and so could likely double as a PC. And it's not scheduled to head west any time soon.
It's interesting to consider, though. World of Tanks has a comparable total user base and has done quite well for itself on consoles, so it might not be that far-fetched to imagine League of Legends making that leap in the not-too-distant future.
