SOE: PS3 MMO could rival World of Warcraft

John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment (SOE), has said that the company’s PlayStation 3 console may one day boost a Massively Online Multiplayer Game (MMOG) that could rival the success of Blizzard’s World of Warcraft series.

When asked on whether or not a home console may host a MMOG that could compete with the popular series, Smedley told GameDaily, "I absolutely do [think we'll see that], and in fact I think by having a stable platform where every customer has an online capable box is a huge, huge potential advantage in building an MMO because you've already got an online userbase.”

“It's a massive advantage over the PC and we don't have to worry about graphics cards or things like that,” he continued.

“It's going to be very big. Console online gaming in general I think is going to be one of the next huge phases of growth in the online gaming space."
