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.

The Agency gets some colourful characters

We've been keeping a close eye on The Agency from Sony Online Entertainment (SOE), simply because the premise looks too good to miss.

Imagine an MMO universe where you get to play as a Bond-like special agent every day, with all the gadgets, weapons and tricked-up cars that job requires.

The Agency doesn't yet have a release date, but we've heard on the grapevine that there will be an announcement at E3 and that the title will hit around November.

Check out this 'Colourful Characters' trailer and let us know what you think in the comments...

The Agency; want to know more?

Over at The Agency HQ fansite they scored a great interview with one of the creators of this forthcoming multiplayer online game.

Part one of the interview concentrates on how abilities and attributes work, what skills the player has, how aliases work, what types of intel you can gain and how to get the best goods.

PS3 Attitude is pretty hyped about The Agency and we've been waiting for something new to report. Go read this interview with Hal Milton now and then check back with them in a few days for the second part.
