GCO: "DC Universe Online creative director Jens Andersen took to Twitter to question fans about bringing the popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game to Xbox."
Wow, this is pretty awesome! Always good to hear about more games being available.
Indeed, I really how they indeed bring it over to Xbox.
It's a fun MMO, the different playstyles make it a bit fresh from the typical WoW copies.
Not sure why they're asking fans when they should be asking Microsoft. Microsoft hates MMOs on their console for the most part (especially when it comes to cross-platform play).
where do you make that correlation? Isnt crackdown a sort of MMO or shadowrun?
MS hates MMO's? Do you have a link where MS stated this? And from the recent announcements it seems MS is going to fully embrace cross platform play in a lot of their upcoming titles. This all comes from their new direction of a unified eco-system of the Xbox brand.
You do know that an MMO called Smite is coming to Xbox One right? Plus at their Windows 10 conference they show their interest for cross play between PC and X1
Smite is a MOBA not an MMO.
Considering last year Microsoft had a panel with Riot Games about the importance of Multiplayer games... That statement couldn't be further from the truth. And Xbox already did Cross plat but they noticed a massive gap between players on console & PC back in 2007. Shadowrun/Unreal Tournament proved it for shooters and being a PC MMO player I can tell you it'd be no different. My Razer Naga with keybindings vs your controller... You're pretty much playing handicapped if we go 1v1 PvP. Why do you people keep making it sound like MS isn't RIGHT when they say certain genres shouldn't do Cross play with PC.
Final Fantasy 11 says hello.
Its not that Microsoft hates MMOs is that some MMOs demand things that go against Microsoft's Xbox Live policies. For example, with FF14 the creator wanted full cross platform play across all systems. Due to the current state of Microsofts policies they can't achieve that with Xbox which is why it's only available on PC, PS4 and PS3. Once Microsoft's gets rid of that or makes an exception for FF14 the game will come to Microsoft's platform. Also some FTP games are not coming to the XB1 because the creators want their games to be 100% FTP. Something that isn't possible on Xbox because all online multiplayer requires a subscription to Xbox Live Gold.
Played DCOU on the PC...didn't like the paywall they had set up. If they change that maybe I'll give it another whirl for the Xbox One.
Its F2P now. I say for those looking for a good super hero mmo, dc universe online is the best mmo out there. to the comment underneath, alot of ppl still play dc universe online.
Yep like what itachi said. It is the by far the best mmo out there!! and its f2p is actually better than most F2P mmos. try it out!!
I know nothing is confirmed but his responses on Twitter more or less make it sound like its already a done deal.
I think we can be quite certain that it will be coming to xbox at some point, the new owners will want to make maximum profit so makes no sense anymore to leave any of their IPs as a console exclusive. Microsoft have probably already opened up a dialog with them by now.
do people even play this game anymore ?!
Honestly, if they brought it to Xbox. I'll be playing it almost all the time.
Oh yeah. It's a great game and lots of people are always on when I log in.
An mmo with no players is an offline mmo. Basically you aren't able to play it anymore cause the servers will be down due to lack of funds. So yes it is still very alive with new content added monthly
I dont think its a possibility lol. He straight up posted, and i quote "So excited to make Xbox One games". Then he also answered questions from people pretty much saying they will get ports to X1 as well.
They weren't worth keeping for Sony IMO. They could use the money they made on the deal to bolster their current studios or buy another. I mean they only had two games on PS3 and one on PS4. It is taking them forever just to get Planetside on PS4. They never really did much for PlayStation anyway they always were PC by and large and I doubt that'll change now. I shudder at them becoming a mobile developer... Just do us a favor and stay PC.
I dont think the money they got from this sale will go anywhere near a game studio. This cash is going into core business to keep them afloat and away from debtors...
Possibly not who knows but it really doesn't hurt their game division any.
Man super excited that this bad ass mmo is coming to x1, i must be dreaming. I wonder if they would let your characters transfer form your ps3 or ps4 to x1.
While I like that SOE is now independent and multi-platform, I am not sure their games are much of a gamer changer. They aren't at all bad games, but they aren't AAA masterpieces neither.
Been playing DCUO or almost 2 years and the game is still a WIP. While enjoyable, it still feels incomplete. Half assed crafting system, laggy counter mechanics, unbalanced powers, and players not knowing how to play their roles even in the end game content because they were never thought in game. PS players have been beta testing DCUO the last 3-4 for Xbox players. :D
*taught, not thought
What about the parity clause?
If you read the announcement that they made, I'm sure they said Sony games are going nowhere :/
