Sony Partners With MMO Studio For An Online PlayStation 3 Game

Sony Computer Entertainment Taiwan is funding first party titles and they commissioned Yeck Entertainment for PSP and PlayStation 3 work.

Specific details about the titles are scarce, but an interview with Impress Watch reveals the genres. The PSP game is a casual title and the PS3 title is an online game.

 

Yeck Entertainment’s work includes Legends of Glory (pictured), a MMO with player vs. monster and player vs. player combat for PCs, and Cubee Cubee, a tilt controlled iPhone puzzle game.

 

Gaming in Taiwan is quite different from Japan and North America where PCs and free online RPGs dominate the market. There is a console scene, but its much smaller — even smaller than South Korea. While a local PSP or PS3 game could expand Sony’s market share in Taiwan, I think this project will expand beyond Sony Computer Entertainment Asia even though SCEJ and SCEA are not involved with its development. Taiwan’s console market just isn’t big enough to justify localized games yet.
