Sony will be holding a PlayStation Business Summit in Korea on the 24th of July.

 

In a press release, Sony notes the main goal for this business summit is for PC and mobile game developers to attend and learn, as well as for them to hear more about what Sony’s been up to, including Project Morpheus.

 

This is the first time such a conference will be held for Korean developers.

 

Also expected to be showcased will be Blueside’s Kingdom Under Fire II, which is finally heading to release on Sony’s PlayStation 4. Epic Game’s Unreal Engine, as well as Unity Korea, will also be on hand to demonstrate.

    Korean MMOs for the PS3, PS4 and Vita. The only thing I am biased enough to believe that would come from this conference. /jk

      So more MapleStory?

        MapleStory 2, maybe.

      Well, a PS4 Vindictus doesn’t sound so bad… XD

    • Niceneasy92

      I would absolutely love to play vindictus on my ps4. Considering my laptop has issues from time to time running everything on low…..

    I like to imagine a day where Sony open up a PlayStation Network for the PC like a competitor to Steam where I can buy and play all of my PlayStation Network games.

    But that sadly seems a little unlikely with the PlayStation 4 selling so well in North America.

      To a certain extent they’re doing that with the Vita and Playstation Mobile. It would be a natural extension to take that and expand it into their other platforms, though I’m guessing it’d only be PS4 going forward.

  • WatchGintama

    If they bring Korean MMOs to the PS4, I will buy one.

  • TheNobody

    A press conference in Korea to get a Korean MMO when I’m pretty sure there are many decent MMO in Japan. They should just have the conference in Japan for Japanese developer since the PS4 is not selling so hot there in Japan, well, that’s just me anyway.

    Def gotta get more Korean (and Chinese) games on the Playstation this generation. With a lot of Japanese devs raking in awful sales, they’re just gonna keep retreating further and further into their niches while only a few of them will support the console (alot of the little guys love the Vita though). That means, it’s time for some other Eastern devs to step up to the plate!

    I tell you what. If Soul Worker, Archeblade or Blade & Soul showed up on PS4, I’d be a very happy gamer ( ^ – ^ )

    … though I’d be far happier if Phantasy Star Online 2 came to PS4. In English. In the West. *gives a DEATHSTARE to Sega*

  • Armageddon

    I wonder if they are interested in korean devs?(korean mmo are cool Elsword and GC are some I like)

  • Nerroth

    I was thinking that Lee Seha might do with replacing that “off-brand” handheld of his with an official model:

      If this game ends up on PS4 I would love that….a DFO kinda game on consoles. :D

    sure, some MMOs are horrible, but there are some good ones out there. Look at Tree of Savior.

  • darke

    I see your other comments in response to WatchGintama; so it’s probably just Disqus screwing up again. I’ve seen way too many of my comments disappear into nowhere, to sometimes reappear again later. :(

  • CirnoLakes

    I don’t think that being biased against entire countries and their video games is very good.
