Couldn't agree more. They did a great job with this game. I can't stop playing.

The game is a quality game for what it is. If you're used to and want a typical fantasy MMO, this may not be for you.

Nice game... but you have to pay money each month to play? Lame.

Then most quality MMOs just aren't for you. It's a given that it will have some sort of cost or some hefty limitations if you don't pay with MMOs.

Most disappointing about the PS3 version is that it's not covered by the Station Pass, only the PC version seems to be covered as such.

Although quality MMO's require a subscription like Eve Online, EverQuest II, and WoW, I still wonder why DCUO did not follow in the footsteps of Guild Wars. The game sells for normal retail price, while incorporating micro-transactions and semi-full retail price for any expansions. At the moment, the community is still going strong with 6+ Million copies sold. It is something that has really puzzled me, but I suppose there are certain costs and restrictions that cannot be covered by GW's model.

@Chaos Striker: I think development costs got away from them (it's been 4 years of strong development) and they are pushing forward initially with the typical subscription model. It's likely they might do a F2P model once monthly subs fall below a certain number.

I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't already began development on a F2P model and code logic for handling microtransactions for accessing certain parts of the game.

Chaos Striker2741d ago

Indeed. We shall certainly see!
