76% of DC Universe Online players play on a PlayStation console

GameZone: "76 percent of DC Universe Online's playerbase is playing the MMORPG on a PlayStation platform. Of that number, 57 percent on playing on PS4." (DC Universe Online, PC, PS3, PS4)

I think we will see the same trend with Planetside 2 and Everquest.

I agree since they are older games and the lack of MMOs for the console. However brand new game will be higher on PC, for a bit anyway.

True. I played for quite awhile until FF14. I just think that merging w/ PC would be cool. I know issues exist, especially for PvP, but it could b worked out. And I think PC players would get over the changes when they saw how populated the world became.

Sometimes, I forget Everquest Next is going to happen. Those are the dark periods in my life. Thank you for reminding me. :D I can't wait!

It's a sweet game. I played it for ps3. It looks pretty good on the ps4 as well.

Good. Now its time to make a Marvel Universe Online.
joab777  +   543d ago
Isn't city of heroes 2 being made using unreal engine 4?

SOE wanted to make Marvel Universe Online, but were turned down. So, they went with DC Universe Online. Marvel had other ideas for what they wanted to do.

Hence, Marvel Heroes... Go ahead. Play Marvel Heroes. Nowhere near as fun as DC Universe Online. It's a shame, too. I prefer Marvel's stories.

Not really , you forget that microsoft was already doing a Marvel MMO for xbox 360 with Cryptic studios . Wich MS cancelled like all their planned xbox mmos . And cryptic salvaged the work for the insipid Champions Online anyway

The plans for the diablo like Marvel heroes only came later . Wth Sony already having a relationship anyway with DC (on top of DCUO , they were the publisher for Sony games based comics such as God of War , While Marvel was even doing the Halo comic books)

I tried to play it too and it sucks. Marvel Heros is just a pathetic attempt to get gamers to waste money.

Time to stop development on the PS3.
joab777  +   543d ago
That would help a ton, but how much revenue still flows from the ps3? Quite a bit. FF14 manages to do whatever they want despite the ps3, but I think their PC base is bigger. Also UE3 is a much different animal.

Considering only around 100 people actually play it. That really isn't saying much. :)
Corpser  +   543d ago
Well, How many MMO games are there on playstation? 3?

How many are on pc? 100?

They threw them a bone. Now people giving credit to everquest too. Funny how that works before eq and wow use to get downplayed to no end

Also they're a ton of mmos that's not on steam.

I actually went back to the game for a 6-9 month period (sub) but got burnt out by the grind. When i hit tier 5 content I was so burnt out that i didnt even play it anymore. I spent more time on forums trying to learn game mechanics only to have said mechanics be changed. The lore is what kept me in the universe.

Its a great game and I am sure I will throw down money on a 3 month sub when they put it on sale but just read before you plunge into end game content. I wasted so much time and marks and shit i didnt even need.

I was playing it on PC a bit, never played it on PS3 before. Just went back to SWTOR though.
