NCSoft North America president Chris Chung has confirmed that the company are planning to port some of their major PC franchises across to the PS3, in addition to launching a brand new IP that will showcased later this year.
It's then or never. It's the year of Console MMO. it's make or break. but whatever. lol. I love MMO's. As long as it supports Keyboard/mouse for console I'll be a happy person.
I think at GDC the steam would be ignited by Smashbros /mgs4/Resistance 2 revelation since europe is pro-sony/pro-nintendo.
I seriously doubt whether Gears would be unveiled at GDC since xbox 360 doesnt sell in europe.
I am betting rather on a e3 unveiling where it could gain lot of hype since xbox 360 has a decent fanbase in north america
It's not then or never at GDC there are future events where they can show them off/reveal them.
PS3 Era 2008
I didn't know that NCSoft had an exclusive deal with Sony for the PS3 and PSN. That was news to me!
How did I miss that?
Anyway, thanks for linking to the story -- I'll be keen to see what makes it to the PS3 in the coming months.
just don`t give me such a hardtime about approval. lol
They announced it at E3. At firstI did'nt know what the heck was happening.
Nice, Now the ps3 can get some mmos too, yipeeeee i love mmos
They did? Dang, how did I miss that, huh?
I'm pretty excited to see what they come up with now -- I could do with some MMO goodness on my PS3.
If this were the case then the PS3 would be the definite MMO console, considering that The Agency is also being released this year.
this is why SONY bought them.
Is there anymore reason to drop 400 dollar on a video card upgrade every few years? along with problems of incompatibility and viruses and ram upgrade~ just get a PS3 IMO much better deal, alwyas compatible
its awesome that the sony will focus developing MMO's on PS3. they really did it right, start with the agency. this is a great news for all MMO players
this is the BEST news possible for MMO players.
since SONY and NCSoft said their gonna have NO MONTHLY charges for MMOs.
would make me come crawling back to tabula rasa.
That's definitely nice news.
i only wish i can use my pc account of gw on my ps3 if its true,.
no monthly bill would be so nice on these mmo's, the ps3 is really getting games in now.
we will be able to play vs pc ppl
Not a good idea, PC gamers can get bots and hacks, while we have to work hard! :P
Time to throw my 360 in garbage.
rumors and speculation but the ps3 fandriods feed into any ray of hope and hold it like it was fact delusional bunch next it will be that world of war craft is coming to the ps3
how is it speculation when NCsoft said they are porting some of there games???
Read poos3 or your just trolling?
and poos3 no1 mention WoW.
WOW ON LINUX + DEDUCTIVE REASONING =
C'MON YOU CAN FIGURE IT OUT.
no monthly charges? Did u just type that?
Oh I'm definetly in.
Yes, Sony and NCSoft has stated multiple time that ALL MMOs on the ps3 will be free to play.
Home along w/ FREE MMOs, is a dangerous combo.
There really are ALOT of good games coming on PS3.... its like they've all built up and are getting ready. The PS3 is coming.
I'm really excited by the all the MMOs coming to PS3 (was into WOW until just recently) but I'm worried that players will be spread over too many different games including Home. The best part of an MMO IMO is having a lively community so I hope they stagger these releases and/or sponsor community building events to get people into these games.
this shouldn't be surprising we already knew that they was going to bring some games to ps3 cause of the exclusive deal. but never thought they would port tabula rasa over hope this turns out to be true.
the more games the better.
more games. more systems sold. more people.
it`ll balance itself out.
what do you think the user base isn`t gonna grow?
cause it will and fast, nearing mid 08.
even when the PC crowd hears the FREE mmo news, some WILL buy a PS3 just for the FREE MMOs, it`s way cheaper in the end.
i wouldn`t worry about any of that.
well if we can cross play with pc users then it should play out all right but if its just with ps3 users well the worlds might be kinda empty.
have about 25 people on my friends list and they never seem to play the same game for more than an hour. when it comes to mmo most of the time you want to put a lot of time into it so you can do the cool stuff with other people.
BUT... When you play an MMO ESPECIALLY if you have just one friend it gets so addicting then any other game out their you loose your life to them. I personally tried over like 30 mmos...(sounds sad..) and after the last one I decided to give them up, which was 2Moons good mmo but too competitive for me.
I hope they put some free to dl also not just free to play. Put some of those up their and could open the MMO market on console.
oh great fcuking MMO's- time to cancel those party and COD4 invites then
i will try to avoid these as i get easily addicted to such games, but i might not be able to resist- great news for ps3 anyway
No monthly charges? no that's very intresting
Guild Wars is a very good game. Better then WoW. I played both.
It does not have grind feast and leveling bullcrap and hunt for leet armor. there is leet armor but different in looks not stats.
Its more competitive game. Guilds VS Guilds and Nations VS Nations.
Also its more skill based. in fact you can only use 8 skills at once not have like 32542353245 skills and you are god mode like rest of mmos.
Awesome. PS3 is looking to completely hands down dominate online console gaming next year. Hopefully all the Xbots won't be so blind to ignore it...
Oh, and you can have City of Heroes - Cryptic is writing a new game called Marvel Universe Online, published by Microsoft Game Studios.
So, uhm, enjoy your rumours... we're getting the only Marvel MMORPG. HEhehe, enjoy your knock-off.
DC Universe is the only one alive now and that's for PS3. Sorry.
The story was posted here on n4g, I'm surprised you missed it.
And that my friends is what we call Ownage.
Have fun feeling like an idiot. Cheers!
wageslave... sorry bud. you got owned hardcore old school style
city of heroes was a very cool game. needed more depth and balance on pvp however...
Those are some serious exclusives!
I would really like to see City Of Heroes if they do decide to make it free to play on console. Another benefit of having games on console no lag spikes and things that mess you up when grinding or pvping. If done right this could be revolutionary to the MMO world.
Also keyboard and mouse support is a must!.
Then you should buy a Xbox 360 and get ready for Cryptic Studio's Marvel Universe Online.
Buy a 360 for a game that got canned? ROFL!
Guild Wars II on the PS3. That will be awesome! 360 Can't do that lol.
Looks like there are tons of games on the ps3 which are gonna be coming out in 2009 as WELL.
But, I think the 360 will have quite a few games planned for 2009 as well. MAybe it will be.
2007 = 360 year
2009= ps3/360 year or even maybe someone might tap into the Wii's hidden power and destroy the competition.
city of hero!!!!!!!
omg!!! Deadpool!!! or spell it with a c....DeadCool~
City of Heroes?
Written by Cryptic Studios. The same Cryptic Studios that is writing the the brand new, Marvel Universe Online to be published by Microsoft
Enjoy your old game...
AHAHAHAHAHAHA. FAIL TO THE MAX!
It will be great to have city of heroes i will be waiting for this lol
