Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley spoke to MTV Multiplayer
in a post-New York Games conference interview to talk about their plans for future MMOs under their wing. Smedley clarifies a few things; the PlayStation 3 versions of The Agency
and DC Universe Online
will arrive the same day as the PC version, there's "a chance, maybe" Sony will use a non-subscription-based model for their upcoming MMOs, and finally, the Smedley confirms that "all of SOE's MMOs will appear on consoles from now on."
Smedley has stated beforehand that MMOs will become a selling point
on the PS3, so this doesn't come as a surprise. However, it looks like SOE is leaning against having PS3-PC cross-platform play for upcoming titles The Agency
due to their potential inability to provide simultaneous content updates
. Will this lack of cross-platform play spell the end of MMOs on the PS3 or can console owners sustain their own community?
