SOE President Shares Feelings Regarding MMOs on the PS3

MCVuk recently held an interview with John Smedley (President, Sony Online Entertainment), regarding the connections SOE has with the PlayStation Network, and the possibility of Massively Multiplayer Online Games on the PlayStation 3.

It’s a very interesting read, and I will say that once the install base grows a little more, I believe the PS3 could handle large-scale MMOs just fine. With out-of-the-box USB Keyboard, Mouse, and Headset support, chat-intensive and communication-heavy games would seem to be a no-brainer fit, right? Also, with the advent of Firmware 2.40, the structure needed to fully support such communicative games will be laid in place.

What do you think?
