I really hope I get into the PS3 beta when it launches, was my most anticipated game this year, now its Up there for next year.

This is going to fail. A lot of PS3 owners complain about paying fees, I can't see them paying for an MMORPG

I'll get my superhero fix from Infamous 2 and Arkham Asylum 2..I ain't payin no damn fees. I was actually ready to buy DC Universe Online Day 1...but when I heard about the fees, I was dissapointed. I hope they change their minds.

And yet people pay money for unlock keys to content already on the disc, as well as $15 COD map packs. As for the monthly fee, if they keep adding content for free and keeping the servers running good, the $15 a month is 1 game every 4 months.

Get a job. 15 a month is nothing.

Im 24 and just bought my 1st house in February with only a Highschool education. If I can do it anyone can.

Hey hey hey hey smoke weed everyday.

Really dude?


you wont play a game because of fees?

What about your precious 360? I guess your not gonna play that and the incoming "flood" of games its bringing, huh.

No Way2860d ago

Well.. a lot of people did sign up for Playstation Plus.
So, I'm sure there will be quite a bit to pay for this, if it turns out good.

HolyOrangeCows2860d ago (Edited 2860d ago )

It's also on PC, btw...

evrfighter2860d ago

same monthly fee. just that you get more for your buck.

SpitFireAce852860d ago

Well it depends of how much it is $$$ and how good
the game is that's why i would like to participate

DCUO is a hard one to predict when it comes to how well it will do.

Firstly its DC and very well done DC at that, its action based with less emphasis on the classic MMO style gameplay and more one to one action combat with a very dynamic, interactive world and great character creation and customization and a very strong looking story. These will draw in the MMO fans, non MMO fans and the DC fans

On the other hand it cost $15.00 a month on top of retail copy of the game which is something console gamers especially PS3 gamers might find hard to swallow, they also promised monthly updated content and full support but how well that is implemented is yet to be seen, also its not like most MMOs and can be considered simpler that many and that will drive away some people and finally its going up against big names like WOW cataclysm and Guild Wars 2 so PC sales might not be as good as they hope.

Its a difficult one to predict on success or not but for me its day one and from the 2 hour beta gameplay IGN had for their charity event it sold me on it even more.

This game is going to fail.

Not only will people not want to pay monthly for this... but have you seen the gameplay? far too boring in my opinion. I just cant see this game doing well at all.

silvacrest2860d ago

actually, combat does not look bad, you must remember that this is a MMO not a action adventure game where there is just you and the AI

compare this gameplay to something like WOW where you click on an icon then your character attacks, DCUO is more action based but still confined in a MMO enviroment

just watch gameplay of both the games i mentioned side by side and you will see what im talking about

so far from what i've seen, and i'm not claiming to have a very accurate opinion, it seems like the games a little choppy, and high chance of balance issues

ECM0NEY2860d ago

You just described every MMORPG at launch...

UltimateIdiot9112860d ago

As much as I want this I can't afford to pay the monthly fee and justify it with enough play time.
