PS3 MMO Could Rival Warcraft, Says Sony >
2008/03/17 9:18:40: Posted by DM
John Smedley, president of SOE, revealed that the PS3 will someday soon have an MMO that will rival the popularity of the phenomenon called World of Warcraft. This statement comes after SOE's move into the SCE facilities during Sony's massive restructuring plan. A bold claim, for sure, but can Sony deliver?

World Of Warcraft has more subscribers than PS3 has sales as far as I'm aware so it's not like there's a chance of this happening any time soon.

Hello Fellow Gamers. I just have to comment on this one. First off, Matt is right. There are more WOW subscribers than all of the PS3 sold worldwide. That's a fact. There are Millions more PCs than all of the consoles combined including PS2. That's another fact.

There's nothing wrong with dreaming, but that's SONY talking CRAP again. It's best if you (SONY) stick with the consoles & concentrate in that area. There's currently no SONY PS3 game that has even come close to selling more than HALO3, WiiSports, SSBM, MADDEN 08, etc.. so why even attempt to venture & compete in the PC world against WOW? Heck the PSN doesn't even have 10 Million plus people on their network, but Xbox Live does.

SO in closing. SONY stop right now with the boasting about something that might not ever happen. Deal with the Wii & X360 in the here & now. Otherwise you might end up with you head up you butt again.

OH BTW @ BlackTiger - is Everquest running on the PS3 as of right now? UUhhmmmnnooo. So why even bring that up. They're talking about a new ip that's supposed (keep dreaming) to Rival WOW. Besides Everquest is a PC game.

Currently WOW is kicking Butt, including your beloved Everquest. That's a FACT.
