In an interview with GameDaily, Sony Online Entertainment Chief John Smedley placed his hopes for the future atop the bank accounts of PSN’s virgin masses, voicing his belief that SOE’s formerly PC-centric business will successfully open up shop in the console market.

“I think PS3 will be close to half our business,” he said. “There’s an audience now waiting for online games on the PS3. I believe PSN has over 15 million users today. It’s growing so quickly, we see a great user-base potential there.”

“I think a lot of the people who play PS3 games right now aren’t the same people playing MMOs right now. I think it’s going to bring in a lot of new players,” he added.
