John Smedley, Sony Online Entertainment President, delivered a spark of good hope for those awaiting the arrival of their free-to-play MMO, Free Realms, on the PS3. Speaking at the Q&A session earlier today at the GDC in Austin, Smedley pointed to "next year."
When asked when the game will land on the consoles, "I'm wondering, too!" was his reply. He quickly added, "It's next year sometime, toward the middle of the year." Well, that's still quite a vast window, but a more narrowed down window as opposed to TBA, nonetheless, I suppose.
He also talked about the functions that have been made tailor-fit for the console version of the game, indicating that the PlayStation Eye might be providing some support for Free Realms. Hopefully we'll hear more about this soon.
