Sony Looks to Playstation 3 for MMOs

If you want to play MMOs on a game console now, the options are limited.

Square released Final Fantasy XI to North America in 2004 for Playstation 2 and 2006 for Xbox 360. Everquest Online Adventures for PS2, a watered-down version of its PC counterpart, launched in 2003. Then there was 2006′s Phantasy Star Universe for PS2 and Xbox 360. And I suppose you grant MMO status to MAG, a large-scale shooter with ever-evolving factions that launched for PS3 this year.

But the games Sony Online Entertainment is working on now break the tired fantasy genre mold, and they should all be up and running in 2011.

Console MMOs have their naysayers, but the PS3 may find success by seeking a broader audience than the World of Warcraft crowd.

PS3 is the best platform for MMORPGs, because psn is free and so when developers decide to add a subscription for these games it won't be as bad compared to the mmorpg players on the xbox 360 that have to pay $50 a year + subscriptions fees.

lol so true and psn+ will be optional and not necessary to play online, not like x-live gold

I remembered the deal with NCSoft and all of that, all the promises but i didn't see anything yet O_o i think i can forget about a Guild Wars version for PS3 or Aion...
I'll pass about DCU, unless it shows me something never seen and a long-lasting funny experience. I hope other companies (Blizzard who? ;) ) will do something like that too, to bring the MMORPG on consoles etc.
