MMORPG coming to the PS3?

1 min read

Okay so it is early days still but NCSoft, the guys who only really make massively multiplayer online role playing games (MMORPG), has announced that they are developing a new game for the PS3 that will be demonstrated later this year.

When they were asked if they where just going to port one of their current titles they answered

that’s the wrong way to do it.

Chris Chung goes on to say

You have to create a gameplay that’s really suitable for the console space, the console experience. I mean, it’s very different from PC. I think the key is whether the development team really buys into the console. I think we have a couple of development teams that the title that they’re making could be a hit in the console space as well as the PC.

Now I have never gotten into the MMORPG genre but if it lands on a console where I can sit on my couch and go on missions across the world, I could see more of an appeal to it. I could actually see the wife being totally addicted so maybe it’s not the best idea after all.

    @ocelot, it was first announced last year yes but with very few details. While we still have very few details we now have a vague timeline and confirmation that it will be an original IP….

    Yay, WOW was the only pc game that I ever found interesting, even if it was only for two hours. This sounds good!

  • doobiwan

    The Company that made Guild Wars, should be interesting.

    It’s going to be interesting to see if it’s something different or they’re toe to toe with Warhammer online and Age of Conan on the 360.

    Rumours have it that Blizzard is actively engaging in the Diablo game again. Which platform they are targeting (if they are at all) is still to be seen. Maybe even the PS3, who knows?

    emp’s last blog post..Diablo 3 – rumors, rumors and more rumors..

  • Knowing Blizzard, it’ll probably be PC exclusive.
