Speaking here, Sony online entertainment president John Smedley said that consoles are the perfect platform on which to release MMOs.

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

When talking of future titles he said, “If you look at The Agency, our DC universe MMO, and even our Free Realms title, we’re doing PS3 versions of all of those games.”
