PS3 games MIA.


 

Two years ago at Sony’s E3 conference, it was announced that Sony had secured an exclusive deal with the Korean MMO developer NCSoft to create games for the PS3. NCSoft is known for games such as Lineage and the soon to be released Aion.

While Aion was never confirmed as one of the games being developed for the PS3, I wish it was. The game looks gorgeous and instead of investing money into upgrading my PC to play it I’d rather play it on my PS3.

The other game mia is Wardevil from Digi-Guys.

This game was announced waaay back at the TGS ’05 with a tech demo shown at E3 ’06. It was originally announced for both the PS3 and 360 but the 360 version was canceled.  Since then there has been little to no news, footage, or even a hint at this game releasing anytime this century . In  December ’08 it was revealed that WarDevil: Chronicles ( a 2D animation film? ) will be a companion piece to the WarDevil game project.

As an on-and-off Lineage 2 player, I would love to see something like Aion available for the PS3.I hope we’ll hear something soon from NCSoft.  As for Wardevil, maybe Digi-Guys is  pushing for a PS4 release.

    Great post. Forgot about these.

    NCSoft laid off large numbers of people and shrunk their operations. I’d imagine the PS3 projects got canned during that.

    WarDevil: sounds like a smaller new studio that put out an awesome tech demo and then fell apart. That’s not uncommon.

    I didn’t know about the layoffs @ NCSoft. Guess I’ll just have to upgrade my PC. :(

    NCSoft is supposed to be bringing a few MMO’s to the PS3.

    Not too crazy about MMOs for consoles. As much as I love the PS3, I think the genre should stay on PCs.

    If a MMO comes out on PS3, are they naturally going to support keyboard and mouse?

    They will at least support keyboard I’m sure. FFXI on the 360 worlds wonderfully and there is no reason the PS3 can’t do it as well.

    and Mike…people said that about FPS games not so long ago.

    I welcome MMO’s to consoles…perhaps by making them cross platform we can have some really live and vivacious communities/economies that very few MMO’s share these days.
