MMO company NCSoft has just recently revealed its game plan for PS3 and PSP, promising that the titles it creates for the platforms will be unique, and not "pure unadulterated ports".
when CVG caught up with NCSoft executive producer Richard Garriott, at this week's developers conference in Brighton, he had this to say "We haven't announced any of the titles we might be bringing out, but whatever we bring out, the one thing I can tell you is that, even if they're some intellectual property we already have, they'll be things that'll be very carefully created for the console experience, not merely a straight port",
"We found even back in my Origin days that direct, unadulterated ports weren't very successful compared to games that you make sure are really crafted correctly for the console experience", he added.
He continued, by explaining that business models along with technology have previously prevented most console companies and online game companies really getting together.
Garriott conclude by saying, "But that's where NCSoft and Sony have shown the vision that, 'Look, none of those issues have anything to do with the customers. The customer just wants to play these games so you guys need to figure it out. Technically the hurdles are now solved, you guys figure out the business and let's get on with making games'".

I'd actually like to see ports of games like Guild Wars and the expansions. New games are cool too though. :)

I would like GW for ps3, but i think if they make it just for ps3, altho u cannot interact with PC gamers, i do think it will be better, and more intense.

Can anyone say "New & Improved Guild Wars for the PS3!!!" I sure hope so. Never played it on pc, but always wanted to. A must buy if it makes it to the ps3.

Good, I don't want to see just ports. I want them to make it more console friendly.
