Kotaku: At Comic-Con yesterday, after showing that epic six-minute trailer setting up the game's story, the eminent artist and writer Jim Lee said that DC Universe Online will launch on Nov. 2.
GT5 release date as well....wonder which one will overshadow which...
Two different types of games though
wow, so GT5 and DC Universe on my birthday, lucky me! :)
add LBP 2 with PS Move Support to that, great finish to the year for sony
as much as i'm amazed by GT5, i'm not a big racing game fan, so i won't be buying GT5. i AM a big comic book fan, and i need my superhero fix while i eagerly await inFAMOUS 2. i'm not too big on the monthly fee for DCUO, but i did really enjoy what i played at E3, and if i get in the Beta, at least i'll be able to see more of the game and if it warrants a full on purchase in November. not every game is meant for every gamer. doesn't mean the quality of games like GT5 is poor because i'm not interested. i never got how some people on forums can get so irate with another gamer for not liking the same exact games that they do. hell, i think Final Fantasy XIII is a very good RPG. others don't agree. that's perfectly fine. GT5 will more than likely outshine DCUO when it comes to sales, but not everybody buying GT5 were interested in DCUO, and vice versa.
have they confirmed a subscription price for this yet? this fall looks pretty dead for me so far so i'll probably check it out, if only to support console mmos.
its $15 a month confirmed and actually this fall has some great games(depending on what you like) but this is definitely one to look out for.
The first month is free I think
Well, first month is included in the price of the game, as with all subscription MMOs. Heh, I wonder how pissed off people would be if they made you pay the $60 for the game, then another $15 on top of that just to try the game out.
GT5, LBP2 and now this.. They are really trying to cram in everthing for xmas. Fine with me that xmas break will be put to good use.
God, the price of GT5 and LBP2 collector editions and then DC... My wallet will cry, but I'll be happy :P
Those damn fees. I'd rather them just charge for extra costumes or something rather than be obligated to pay $15 a month. That's going to add up quickly to one expensive game and during a time when there's going to be a ton of other options.
micro transaction can be worse depending on what is for sales im going buy what someone else said not long ago, at least with a monthly fee everyone is equal
Micro transactions are worse. At least 15 a month is 1 game every 4 months. PC gamers who have played MMOs understand the costs (how many millions of people play wow and spend 15 a month on it?). Micro transactions I find can ruin the experience. They wouldn't charge for just costumes, and if they did, that's gear with sweet stats (no one would but crappy gear with sub par stats on it) that you'd collect as you play through. So the crazy people who want to spend more money to get gear faster or level up faster (many free-to-play games with micro transactions in it sell experience boost items) would be at an advantage over others, and seeing how it'll have PvP in it, who do you think would be winning games? At least with a monthly fee, everyone is on equal footing. I'm just hoping that they use the money to provide constant updates / fine tuning and that PS+ might reduce the monthly fee a bit (5 off a month?).
GT5, LBP, Call of Duty Black Ops, Crysis 2, Assassins Creed Brotherhood, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Max Payne 3 and Driver sceduled for the same month as DCUO. Not that they're in direct competition, just an observation. ^_^ I'ma get DCUO, and all those aside Max Payne. Incase anyone missed it, you can sign up for the beta here. http://www.dcuniverseonline... If you wana make sure you get in, sign up with lots of accounts, but make sure if you get multiple codes - you give the extra codes you get away.
Yeah out of that list, I'm grabbing Black Ops, NFS:HP, and I might snag Driver in the months after its release. I've never played the first LBP, so I'll buy that before I get the 2ns. As for GT5 and Driver, I don't usually buy driving/racing games until a while after release.
alot of console owners want mmos but complain about the monthly fee
well PC MMO gamers are used to it while console gamers have a very limited supply of MMOs to play and all this paying for a game you already purchased stuff might seems like to much for those unaware the fee is for almost 24 hour support, continuous updates, servers and some other stuff, dont think that the monthly fees are just going to the publishers pockets
Yep, and 15 a month is only 1 game every 4 months. For people who have played WoW, between expansions there have been a ton of dungeons / raids put out with new factions and quests, good support for the most part, server fixes (though maintenance is brutal at times), and the developers listened to comments / criticisms that players made and fine tuned different areas (some adjustments were quick, others took a bit). If the DC developers provide good support, the monthly fees won't be too bad. And on the other bright side, with the PS3, your account won't get hacked :P
Hmmm hand in hand with GT5? Interesting.
I don't have a problem paying for fees if the content is worth it and looks like a good value to me (see SWTOR or WOW) but I just don't see it with this game. I'll have Reach and probably either LBP2 or Assassins Creed Brotherhood instead
the one's complaining arent mmo players.. i wish it were $9.99 but still, i've paid for World of Warcraft, still paying for final fantasy XI , etc etc.. its the nature of mmo's.. i prefer a balanced mmorpg with subscriptions than an unbalanced free mmorpg with micro transactions
If the fees were only $3.99 a month, now were talking. But I doubt a lot of people would continue to pay $15 per month. What about using that $15 on something far more important like a gym membership, food, clothes, save up for another PS3 game like Twisted Metal.. I'm not downplaying DC Online... I was so into the game until my heart was crushed with the monthly fees.
Heart crushed by monthly fees... you were naive to get 'into' an MMORPG not expecting montly fees. I do agree though. Should be cheaper, and sub fees for MMOs are essentially one big unjustifiable ripoff. Like 90% of the sub fees go to net profit, the rest hosting and maintenance. Further developments typically pay for themselves as expansions are usually charged for.
"But I doubt a lot of people would continue to pay $15 per month. What about using that $15 on something far more important like a gym membership, food, clothes," stupid remark because you can say that about anything, "instead of buying a game, what about using on something more inportant gyn,food,cloth...etc" see what i did there The game is actually $45 and , $60n for the game and a month free, every game is $60 these days, and It's a MMO of course the developers need some money to improve the game throughout the life span instead of them asking sony every time
@Genesis2oo9 "But I doubt a lot of people would continue to pay $15 per month." really tell that to the millions who play World of warcraft at $15 a month...just because you may not pay it doesn't mean noone will. DC has huge fan base for comics, movies, tv shows etc. This from what I have seen will greatly interest the fans of the DC universe. It will all fall back on how well it plays, how much playtime you can get from it and how they support and evolve the game in the future.
i paid a monthly fee for a certain MMO for more then a year and dont regret anything, if the content/community is good i dont mind paying
When beta starts ???!!!
Noone knows yet.
I'll be buying this and Gran Turismo 5. Probably won't be needing another game after that. :P
Your birthday is the same as mine. Lucky us!
Nice. To be honest though ill be playing FFXIV. xD
