A representative from Sony Computer Entertainment has informed IncGamers that the images which were circulated around the internet of the upcoming MMO DC Universe Online recently are unofficial and unapproved.
Shame, they're gorgeous images!
If this is fan made, it's very good fan made!
That's what they always say :P
It would be easier if they just released their own, official stuff.
Oh really? Well I guess it was for the best, it is a bit "bloom"y
Pity. Wonder how they came to be though? was it from them and accidentally released, or a hoax?
Always lots of hoaxes around popular brands. This would be a VERY good one, however.
is this one of those free mmos on the ps3?
I dont think it's been confirmed whether it will be free or subscription based.
but i think they ultimately decided to do a free to play model, like Guild Wars and Free Realms, with players potentially buying new stuff. or maybe i saw it in an interview. i've been following the game for a while now, but i wish i could point you to it. i'm not a big DC fan, but i LOVE super-heroes, and i played City of Heroes for YEARS, but it really isn't a fun game to PLAY. i loved the character creation, but the mission structure and game play elements are weak. DCUO actually looks like a fun action game, and i get to make my own super-hero! if the game isn't free to play, however, i may pass. i just don't have it in my budget to play an MMO. my wife canceled her WoW subscription for the same reason. there are a lot of other games out there that don't force you play to play online (well, at least on the PS3, PC, DS, Wii, and PSP), so DCUO isn't free to play, they aren't getting my money anytime soon.
yet another ps3 exclusive. i'd almost forgot about this one theres so many.
I can usual spot a 'fake' a mile off, the telltale photoshop signs, but if these were fan made they're excellently done and perhaps this dude should be on the payroll. That's if, they're fan made.
it would be a dream come true to travel around in home with easy access to dc universe with its owned theme space. when i play socom and Mag i go into the tactical operations center and try to recruit before i go online. I like that. too bad it really dont work right with socom. maybe im doing something wrong. i guess they have to be on my friends list to party... anywho, im betting sony makes dc universe a home event.
cant wait for this and free realms lol
they also look like concept of potential start screens, and web page screens for the official site. working in the gaming industry, i've seen games go through quite a few different iterations of things like main screens. i just think someone at SOE "leaked" them. or maybe it's their clever way of doing a "focus test" with their potential fanbase, and seeing which images the fans respond to. you know how picky folks on the internet can be. i wouldn't be surprised if people on the net didn't buy a game because of poor cover art. people have even MORE absurd reasons than that to not buy a game (ie, it's on a console they "hate.").
