More PS3 MMOs in development than currently announced

In an interview with Edge Online, Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley has revealed some interesting plans that fans of gold-farming and raiding might be interested in.

Asked about SOE's plans to make all future MMOs available on both PC and the PS3, John declared that "[Sony] believe very strongly that the future of our MMOs will be taking the titles in development--and we have more in development than we have announced, I will say that--and doing them across PC and PlayStation 3."

Apart from these unannounced games, the SOE president confirms that PS3/PC joint-play in upcoming spy game The Agency is "pretty unlikely" though your core character can be played on either system.

With the theory that the PS3 may be better suited for the MMO genre than its closest rivals (guaranteed hard-drive, official USB keyboard and Mouse support - though this can also be obtained on a 360) and a (questionably) more mature user-base (traditionally the MMO demographic) we would like to ask: Would you play a PS3 based MMO in your living room? Are you looking forward to the likes of The Agency and/or DC Universe Online? Let us know in the comments.

I see the mind-meld is coming along nicely ...

I read your article and I agree completely. I used to do a lot of gaming on my PC but, since the PS3, I don't think I've spent more than a couple of hours gaming on my old rig.

And don't get me started on the piracy thing ...

MMOs on consoles can work. EQOA had a good user base on the PS2. In fact, when the european servers were shut down, a lot of folk migrated to the american servers, which I'm told, were still quite full.

FFXI is another good example. When playing there was a good chance that out of the six people I was hunting with, at least two were on the 360. Heck, a few of the people in my clan were still playing in in the PS2!

Of all the up and coming MMOs Free Realms interests me the most. I can see the Agency being like an 8 million player Socom Deathmatch.. and I suck at Socom.
