The heroes of DC face seemingly insurmountable odds against threats both physical and mental in this 5 minute CG trailer for DC Universe Online!
looks amazing, but the subscription...
It's an MMO... 9 times out of 10 there will be a subscription fee. On topic: Nice twist. Too bad I'll be playing Star Wars: The Old Repubilc. Maybe I'll pick this up down the road.
mu online is a free mmo, but if i get more dough coming in, ill buy this game, it really is on my wish list.
Mu is free to play, but micro transactions in it like many other free to play MMOs. I hate micro transactions more than monthly fees. If someone feels like $100 on items, they can get better geared or level faster than others that aren't that crazy (I've seen people do it...). At least with monthly fees, everyone's on equal footing, and the money the developers get from either way goes towards creating new content for free / improving the game. Guild Wars was a pretty good Free to play MMO (if you ignore the exapansion packs, though those added a nice deal of content), but not much of a community when you had like 50 instances of a town. Hoping Guild Wars 2 turns out good. As for DC UO,hoping PS+ members might get a price reduction / early beta invites (signed up for the beta from their site already).
I'll be playing this until the release of The Old Republic.
thats my plan to but i'm hoping DC might be good enough for me to stay long term who noes...
.. have been nice but the story setup seems epic
Most MMOs have subscriptions. Not many free to play ones that are great. As long as they bring new content, provide great service, and fine tune the game / listen to the players, it shouldn't be too bad. $15 a month is a new game every 4 months. If you have trouble with cash, get a job or learn to save on sh!t you don't need. Only problem I can see the game facing is being in the same month as LB2 and GT5, with both having collectors editions (LBP2 being $99 and GT5 $99). As for the trailer, loving the story to it. Was amazed when I saw it on Spike and can't wait till I can get to try it. p.s. Hoping any discounts for the game associated with PS+...
I'll buy this if i can buy the subscription by topping up through the PSN. IF its credit card only , then it can stay on the shelf gathering dust.
WOW! what an Intense Trailer, this game is going to Rock!
NO WHERE in ANY of the previews for the last two years have they mentioned a subscription. In fact, they mentioned that they were considering a non-subscription model similar to Guild Wars. So, as of right now... there is no subscription fee. It's possible that they just have not announced it yet though. Either way, day one purchase for me. I'm pre-ordering this weekend!
THAT IS AWESOME!
This is an awesome story that fits right into the DC universe. I really want to get it but yeah, that fee.
I want to see the guys who made this make an entire movie. Sweetest 6 minutes ever.
it had the same cinematic quality as the old republic trailers it would be awesome for this to be turned into a movie but i think the production cost would be really high
not to mention i liked the gameplay I saw awhile back. Yeah I hate having to pay the sub fee....but I SERIOUSLY just might
Great that they got Mark Hamil to voice the Joker. I guess SOE wanted to show that not only Bioware and Blizzard can make good cinematic trailers.
the starcraftII trailer was amazing...its right up there with some cinematic movies, and even puts some to shame
this is crazy. this is like batman AA meets justice league unlimited! DC is so better than marvel. everything from tv shows and movies even games now. Oh i forgot to say! I dunno if theres DC fans in here but the game concept is kind of like The justice leauge crisis of two earth movie. Where lutho from earth 2 comes to ask help from the justigue from the other universe. complicated stuff but GOOD!
But at the heart of it all, the comics, Marvel has always outdone DC without question. And DC has an advantage on those that you said because where marvel does their OWN work, DC gets companies like Warner Bros to do theirs
Now DC fanboys? LOL. Marvel > DC everyday in everything except Batman. LOL. No, I'm looking forward to this game...subscription fees or not. That is the best trailer I've seen since Killzone 2.
DC has ALWAYS been better than Marvel. Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, & Wonderwoman pretty much trump the entire Marvel catalog!!! Spiderman and Wolverine are really the only characters that were really interesting in the Marvel books imo. Superman and Dark Knight books are the best hands down though!
Why marvel has more market share than dc now right? Not to mention why general consensus continually say Marvel's story arcs make DC's look weak (which they do). The only decent storyline DC has put together in recent years is blackest night. Whereas Marvel has been able to put together a string of strong story lines in succession (house of M, civil war, annihilation, world war hulk, secret invasion, dark reign, seige) And the BIGGEST factor of all as to Why Marvel does better in the comic scene than DC is the fact that their characters aren't made out to be uber like DC's are. Marvel's characters have human elements and flaws where DC's characters are all made out to be almost perfect beings. Thus making them less connected to the general reader.
Looks great, but i wont play cause of the montly payments. that sucks.
Aaaand, where did you read that there is a monthly fee exactly??? They have not stated one.
Difficult to decide on buying this as a DC fan.
when this game is going to launch?
I Like this Trailer a Lot .Its like a Small Movie and if the Game looked like that i would Buy a PS3 right now.Best Trailer ive seen in a Long While.
But ... the monthly fee! It's killing me! So I'm refusing to purchase it until it's free. Sorry Sony :(
Epic trailer, but it shows nothing about actual gameplay. Monthly fees keep this game out of my list though...
I Keep watching it OVER and OVER Again and Again Just #$%@ AMAZING !
I totally agree! This would make an awesome movie!!
i think everybody who watches it would love to see a feature length version. i know i bloody would.
I am getting this game.
I must say that this is probably the best trailer I have ever seen and I was already super hyped for this game. The fee is another story though. Decisions, decisions.
The game looks fantastic and the fee would be worth it.
that was cool. only if they had a few movies with the cgi graphics,cant wait for the game tho
Wow, if I ever needed a reason beyong Twisted Metal to buy a PS3......But like everyone said, I think a fee is asking a bit much even for something this epic.
EPIC . Worth it .
I'm pretty sure you get the first month free. How many of you bought GoW 3, Alan Wake, and countless other titles for $60 that you beat in 1 or 2 days? You get to play it for 1 month and decide if you want to keep playing.
I'll only pay the m monthly fee if i can pay it with the PSN cards, I dont want to use a credit card to pay for monthly fees, the Trailer had me in awwww, i even DVR'd it so i can watch it in HD whenever i want
yeah, i'm hoping you can use the psn cards, because i got to play this game.
its good thats its a subscription mmo so that they can improve, update, patch and fix whatever problem the game have. I want this game to be the next mmo that will take up most of my time.
