When most people think of MMOs and MMORPGs, they usually envision a lone PC player sitting hunched over his or her desktop, anchored in their seats for hours of gaming running on nothing but Red Bull and Cheetos. Sony however, sees it differently.
In a recent interview with Games Industry.biz, Sony of Europe’s John Smedley sought to reconstruct the perceptions of the MMO by labelling the NGP as the perfect destination for the massively multiplayer online games market.
With the console, we’re selling to an audience that already has the PS3 obviously – and by the way not the just the PS3, but in the future I can [see] other devices. Sony’s announced the NGP, and if that isn’t a perfect machine for doing MMOs on, then I don’t know what is.
Sony’s own free-to-play MMO Free Realms recently launched on the PS3 and has been available on PC for even longer. Thus it seems likely that we’ll see Free Realms hit the NGP when the online store rolls around.
What we’d really like to see though is Dungeon Fighter Online. How about you guys and gals? Any MMOs you’d like to delve into with your NGP on the go?
