's swanky E3 press room, we noticed a trend while chatting up various developers: the PlayStation 3
. Though up to this point, console MMOs haven't been the norm, Sony seems to be pushing hard in that direction. The three major titles SOE is showing off this week -- DC Universe Online
, Free Realms
, and The Agency
-- are all planned for release on the PlayStation 3 as well as the PC. DCUO
and The Agency
are both currently planned for a simultaneous PC/PS3 release (though that may change) while the Free Realms
team is planning to make sure they have a smooth PC release before making the jump to PS3. Everyone we talked to seemed to recognize there are some hurdles to overcome to bring an MMO to a console market -- but they were also confident about overcoming them.
