Smed Interview: PS3 and SOE

smed

GameDaily recently interviewed John Smedley, SOE god, and he had this to say about SOE games on ps3

I think PS3 will be close to half our business. There’s an audience now waiting for online games on the PS3. I believe PSN has over 15 million users today. It’s growing so quickly, we see a great user base potential there.

I think a lot of the people who play PS3 games right now aren’t the same people playing MMOs right now. I think it’s going to bring in a lot of new players. There are certainly people who have consoles and PCs in their house. The difference is what they actively play. PS3 gamers are used to playing Resistance 2 instead of a shooter on the PC. I think we can bring this kind of gaming to this audience and I think it’s going to be huge.

Read the whole interview for more tidbits about SOE’s future. Things are looking up for SOE, should be a good year as long as there are no delays. Free Realms + The Agency = I’m intrigued. DC Universe Online? Not so much, but that’s another blog.
