PlayStation 3 For Me (And You)

By Jim Rossignol on August 29th, 2007.

GamesIndustry.biz have an interview up with NCSoft (Guild Wars, City of Heroes) boss Geoff Heath. In it Geoff explains that he believes PC users will end up buying a PS3:

I think there is a difference between PC and console players but there’s overlap as well. Our view long term is that people who have traditionally only played on PC will actually now start transitioning to PS3. Once they figure out what PS3 does, I think that take-up will get greater and greater.

It’s a fair bet – did anyone not own a PS2 at some point?

Geoff is also rather keen on getting more PC gamers playing NCSoft games, hinting that they might not just be bringing out more of that fantasy elf-tweaking stuff:

We’re going to have all sorts of stuff. I’m sure some of them will fail, but we can’t keep recycling the goblins and the swords.

I think that will grow the market. There’s 2 million people playing Guild Wars, but there are 198 million people in Europe with PCs and broadband who aren’t playing Guild Wars. So I say, let’s go get them.

Go get ‘em! Yes.
