NCsoft On the Future, Worldwide Hits and PS3 MMOs

GameDaily recently spoke with NCsoft North America President Chris Chung about NCsoft's growth direction for the next year. He believes the shift of MMOs to consoles is "inevitable."

GameDaily queried him on the exclusive deal that NCsoft recently signed with Sony for the PS3. We've yet to see an MMO game take off on consoles, so how will NCsoft approach this challenge? "I think there are a lot of causes that factor into good MMOs on a console," Chang ventured. "These are elements like 'does the person have a standard definition TV or an HDTV?' You don't have a good a resolution on regular TV, and a lot of games were hurting for that. Ultimately, we have to really optimize for consoles; we have to create an experience that's suited for the [PS3] and supports the MMO element. I think the shift is inevitable; real-time strategy is one of the last PC genres moving onto consoles, and I think we'll see a similar trend for online games as well."

Something to be excited about...... in 3 years. All this talk of these games coming is absurd. We won't see an NCsoft game for 2 years at the very least.

The Agency, made by Sony, won't even be hear until 09... Wait and see. Everyone likes to tell me to shut up... but when you look at logistic's and how many times I've been right about everything I've said... I have a way better record than idiot surfer girl.

As I said...

The Agency won't come out until 09
We won't see anything from NCsoft until 2 or 3 years down the road
Alan Wake for the xbox 360 was axed
I broke the news about the ghostbuster game befor anyone (documented on my website)

and tons of other $#it yet everyone tells me how wrong I always am. Please.

heyheyhey4325d ago

No. He's Gamesblow. One of the Sony Snipers who gives a fair and unbiased opinion about what goes on in the gaming industry. Check any game related message boards (NeoGaf, Gamefaqs, and you will see that Gamesblow has a 98% approval rate.

When the rare occassion occurs that Dark Sniper has a question or needs research on something, he goes to Gamesblow as his source. Dark Sniper encourages all of his fellow Sony Snipers to award Gamesblow with bubbles every chance you get.

man all those fools i used to blast on COD4 are going to be playing some crappy MMO's, although that exteel game looks interesting

i get easily addicted to things so i learned from my mistakes and now i never even come close to a MMO game, you spend hours and hours on it and for what? some sh!tty piece of armour and 100 gold.....pffft

playing rewarding, challenging and engaging games like Unhcharted and COD is so much better
