We have yet to see if MMORPGs take off on the PlayStation 3 the same way they did on the PC, but games like DC Universe Online are capable of raking in millions of fans.
And let's not forget that Sony Online Entertainment has plenty in the hopper, and it has been confirmed they're working on EverQuest III . As we've learned , SOE will keep cranking on the third iteration in the legendary MMO franchise, and studio president John Smedley also hinted that it could come to the PS3. When asked about the possibility of EQIII coming to Sony's console, Smedley replied:
"Can’t comment on that, all I can say is we are a Sony company, and we are very, very proud of the work we’ve done on DC Universe Online, which is multi-platform; and we are very, very proud of the work we have done on The Agency, which is multi-platform."
That's sort of a hint, yes? The question is, does the PS3 have enough fans to make EQIII a smash hit…? We know PlayStation is a beloved platform for many RPG followers worldwide, but it has always been a very different world; most role-playing experiences on PlayStation platforms haven't been anything like MMOs. But these days, what with the fresh capabilities of consoles, it sorta makes anything possible.
