Planetside 2 dev feels it can bring its games to the PS3

John Smedley, one of the people who developed PlanetSide 2, feels his studio Sony Online Entertainment can develop games for the PS3 very easily, quoting DC Universe and Free Realms as live examples, while also teasing future projects.

“We’re in a unique position,” he told OPM. “We have two operating free-to-play games on PS3 right now – DC Universe and Free Realms. Actually, 70% of our revenue comes from PS3. So we’re uniquely placed having helped to build the PlayStation Network in the first place. PSN has the ability right now to handle free-to-play games, and it does so very well.”

“The way I see it in the future,” he continued, moving on to the topic of whether or not consoles are here to stay. “There seems to be this argument going round that we’re going to see the last of consoles – and to me there’s this very simple delineation. For me my computer is in my office at home, and my TV is in my living room.

“Consoles are a different type of gaming for me, and I play different games on different devices – but I think the free-to-play model works awesomly on consoles and I think you’re going to see more of it as time goes on. It’s going to be much more prevalent on consoles.”

When asked if PlanetSide 2 would ever hit the PS3, he said: “What I’d say is – SOE has proven that we can bring our games to the PS3, and it’s fair to say that we’ve got some other stuff out there cooking. I can’t tell you what platforms it’s for, but we’re really excited about it.”

Man, what would I not give to play PlanetSide 2 on the PS3.
