In an interview with the Seattle Times
, Sony Online Entertainment head, John Smedley, sees a future for MMOs on the PS3. He tells the paper that MMOs are going to be a "real strong selling point for the PS3" and uses The Agency
as an example. More collaboration between the online and console divisions makes sense now that SOE reports to Sony Computer Entertainment Inc
Smedley believes that MMOs will reach a 50/50 ratio between men and women over the next decade. He believes some of these games will be "as big as hit movies." Funny thing is that there's already a few out there, like World of Warcraft
-- too bad that one only belongs to Blizzard.
