Sony PSP: Open To MMO World


Posted September 29, 2008 - By jmanalang

Have you ever considered an MMO title hitting a portable gaming platform? It's certainly addicting enough to just have it available via a home console, but Sony Online's considering the idea on the Playstation Portable. Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley said to MTV:

“And as we’ve kind of got our heads up looking around the world within Sony Computer Entertainment, we’re really starting to see a big push for PSP. We think it’s a world-class device… In the future, we see full MMOs that are designed for the PSP.”

Smedley added that possible MMO applications to the PSP could be linked to their upcoming subscription-free MMO title, Free Realms, where they could utilize the portable console for a "pet-training system" that links to the game. "Another way to do it might be to give them mini-games that they can do [on the PSP] when sitting at a bus stop,” said Smedley.

With the PSP's ailing third party support, an MMO application could be an interesting attempt in boosting the system's credibility with third-party developers. What do you think?
