CVG: Sony Online Entertainment has confirmed that PS3 MMO DC Universe Online is on course for an end-of-2010 release - but that its developers "still have a lot of work ahead of them".
I thought it might be late 2010, it seems like the same can probably be applied to Final Fantasy XIV just as well... /sigh. Well I guess one can't really complain if they pour their heart and soul into the game to make it the best damn DC Universe MMO that they can possibly make.
don't be surprised if the title gets pushed to 2011
wouldn't be surprised to see it in fall 2011.
I'm patient, but really hope I at least get into the beta.
I'm honestly interested in this game but because of FF14 i'm not sure if i'll join it. I'd like to see if they issue an open beta and then i'll try out both and see which one I like better. I hope this succeeds but i'm not sure, there seems to be a decent amount of MMO's coming out on PS3/PC this fall and early 2011. Hopefully DC Universe will find it's own audience and the comic book crowd joins and it can flourish.
I think that out of the 4 or 5 frontrunners for superheroes mmo , DC and Marvel definitively got an easy advantage . All they've got to do is release a better city of heroes without the numerous possible screw ups . And it looks like it's happening , at least with DC . being a wolverine or batman clone in the DCU or MU is definitively much more appealing that watered down clone universes .
Except for the fact that you CAN'T be a clone of them. In this game you can only fight along side the heroes and/or villains. You can't become them
But you can create your own hero with nigh on identical powers. If you want to create a guy who flys and shoots lazers out of his eyes you can do that - Superman If you want to create a tank character who specialize in close combat you can do that – Wolverine There’s plenty of customization options for appearance so making a guy in a blue costume with a red cape, or a guy in a yellow catsuit with a black pointy mask shouldn’t be too hard.
@lodossrage Like said above , of course you can be clones , with various degree of accuracy . That's the whole point . Not everyone is going to be that original and creative , and pretty much much every powers and fighting style will be stuff that's already used in comics
i thought at least the summer,but woteve,just look forward to playn it when it hits.
Well first it was supposed to drop this month, them late summer, now end ot the year, oh well I'm not complaining, gives them more time to get things right. Because as you can see, other superhero mmos aint all that, some were hyped to the heavens and became a big letdown. Ok F the sublyminals, Champions Online I'm talking about you!
Well i'd rather wait a little longer for a good game than buy a game that just isnt polished enough, so take as long as you need sony. Hope it lives up to the hype :)
i understand the constant delays, after all, being a MMO if its not good off the bat people wont stick around for the updates they will just move on but saying that, it does feel like this game has been delayed for years and years since this is getting delayed again, all i have to look forward to this year is a PSPhone and even that has not been confirmed, heres hoping sonys E3 comes with megaton announcements
Many games are coming out this year, or already have been released. We're gona need some games for next year. And this looks like itd be a great online experience.
