E3: NCsoft's PSN games for PC

"Very likely," says CEO.

NCsoft Europe CEO Geoff Heath has told GamesIndustry.biz that the games the company plans to release for PlayStation platforms are also likely to be released for PC.

Heath's comments followed the Sony conference announcement that NCsoft has signed a development deal to produce titles for PS3 and PSP. He told GI.biz, "We've got a load of stuff in development, primarily for PC, and we will with Sony select the ones that are applicable to do on PS3.

"Those are the ones we will do for PS3, and they will be exclusive to PS3, but they will also very likely be on PC."

Heath confirmed the games will not appear on any other console, stating that there are "no plans" to develop games exclusively for Wii or Xbox 360. However, he added, "We'll continue to talk to all the other console people, we're not cutting off anything with anybody.

"But in terms of what Sony's vision is and our vision is for online gaming on console, I think it's a good fit."

No details of game titles or release dates were announced at Sony's conference today. Heath said there is "no minimum and no maximum" to the number of NCsoft games which will eventually appear on PlayStation platforms, but that the first batch will be comprised of several titles.

"Our nice problem is to try and distill down to three or four titles initially that will do for PS3, and working out with Sony which ones they are," he explained
