Sony Online Entertainment's superhero MMO DC Universe Online makes its chart debut at No.2 on this week's UKIE/GfK-ChartTrack PS3 chart.
Wow that's fantastic news!Hope this game keeps selling. Seems like it could have a nice community too.
This game doesn't have a lot of advertising, but every one of my friends who were in the beta say that it's one of the most-fun MMO's they've played in a long time. I'm glad that Sony Online Entertainment got this to work, because it could have easily fallen flat on its face in terms of execution.
Yeah it's amazing what word of mouth and a beta can do!Well done SOE, sure free realms is coming to ps3 too for free!
Word of mouth is marketing and cannot be beat marketing at that. Recommendation is the best marketing from one person to another.
Yea i was in the beta with my brother as well. The game is super addictive and the pvp is fun. The game just need tweeks and balancing but that usual for MMOs. The only reason i haven't bought a copy yet is because i am waiting for them to release the lifetime subscription for the ps3 version
i would love to pick this up as $15 month is nothing to me; but i can't allow myself to get sucked back into MMOs. FF11 almost ruined my life until i was snapped out of my addiction to it lol.
wow, this game is doing much better then i would have expected
Wow, haven't seen one advert for it or anything in the media, doing well, awesome game
wow, that seems a successful launch given that its a MMO
another massive exclusive ... unless ur dumb go buy a ps3 ... heck go buy two lol
Or just... you know.. get it for the PC if you prefer mouse and keyboard for an MMO. And yes before everyone goes in cahoots, I also own a PS3 :|
Trust me this is one game where a gamepad controller is better than a keyboard and mouse. A lot of people in the beta complained that the controls were built with the ps3 in mind over the pc
Dude. Its on PC as well. I am tron weather to get it for PC or PS3.
Get it on PS3 so Sony will continue to give us MMOs on our console. Support it like we did.
wow, 5 posts that start with "wow". On topic, glad DCUO is a hit, debut at number two only behind the beast that is GT5.
I guess everyone was shocked that it did that well, a console mmo was a gamble that not too many thought would succeed. I was the beta and loved it.
hahaha look at black ops LOL. Glad different games are getting to the top other than call of duty. GT5 is awesome. Dunno if I should get DC I dotn know the charge.
i'm glad it's a success, not many console MMO's have had a good launch plus these guys did make the everquest games.
does anyone have anyone on their friends list playing this game? and of course I'm speaking to ps3 pwners, not pc. out of the 20-25 people on my list I see that only one has it. Just trying to get an accurate number by real people, not what the media is saying...
I know people that play it, people that do have the PS3 but are playing this on PC. I played the beta on PS3 and it was pretty cool but if I bought it, I'd buy the PC version as the people I normally play MMO's with are playing it on there.
i have about 5 people so far on my friends list who's playing to great game. i wish i was there with them :(
I've got I think 30 people on my list and I've seen 3 people play it. I think 2 of them are european (one UK, the other I dunno) and the other is canadian.
I'm confused, how can ANYONE disagree with a question? is this site riddled with idiots? for all that answered the question, many thanks. I asked to find out which version to get. now I understand the meaning of fanbois. you people suck and ruin gaming, go kill yourselves you fucking wankers and leave the gaming to real gamers. losers
The individual format chart's top 3 is horrible... Just Dance 2, Wii Fit Plus and Kinect Sports... then you get a real game, Gran Turismo 5.
who could disagree with what you said? is this what gaming has come to cheering that shovelware leads our favorite hobby? the shame. @PT not in my world of gaming the day it fully takes over i quit for good. i will never support what M$ is doing with kinect, and i hate the fact that nintendo allowed it to happen on the wii. they use to have a standard of quality before you could release a game on their consoles. now if it doesnt come from them there's no point in buying most of the games on their system. i hope its limited on the ps3 but i dont see that lasting very long. as long move is working great with core games then im alright with that.
Apparently, shovelware is acceptable as chart topping software... on some consoles.
and yet the irony is (or hypocrisy from some) , a year ago , some people were moaning about that same type of situation in japanese charts . With of course the unwarranted "japaneses folks got no taste" kind of crap
unfortunately spendind more on adverts than game developement seems a better business plan these days
Go to Amazon.co and you have Just Dance 1 and 2 in the top three. And yes, Gran Turismo is a real game/ way of life.
This game need more alerts and contents. People are starting to reach the level cap already.
Level cap means nothing when there are 6 different mentors to hit level 30 under (see platinum trophy) and completely separate campaigns for villains and heroes. Mentors each have exclusive missions. You won't do the Scarecrow story under Superman, the Metallo one under Batman, and you won't beat the snot out of Batman and Supergirl if you're being trained by WonderWoman. That requires the Joker. No one should complain about content until they've at least capped off one or two villains and heroes. It's not a sprint to 30, more a marathon to 180.
I'm almost @ twenty a week later. I bet lots of gamers will reach the level cap for all mentors in one or two months time.
There is a monthly fee for this game and the 30 day free trial is ticking. People are not going to pay $15 a month to grind mentor content and sit around waiting for alerts to pop up. In order to retain their subs there must be compelling content beyond that at the level cap be it raids or whatever. Hopefully Sony is working on such content as we speak.
if you lot are on lvl 30 already you must be on it like 24/7 or something i only got to level 8 on the beta as i did not want to spoil the game for myself
nice to see that its doing well
That is awesome
excellent dcuo deserves sales!!
