Don't think I ever played any of their MMO games. Hope it works out

Really? EverQuest and PlanetSide are classics.

Planetside with platoons - so neat. Wish that would have had half the momentum that Fortnite has had

DC Universe? Is this the same company that left Sony, not PlayStation? If so, maybe PlayStation should have snatched them uo and fully integrate them into the fold.

porkChop93d ago

Yeah, they used to be called Sony Online Entertainment.

Abnor_Mal93d ago

Yes, I dont think they ever had anything to do with PlayStation. For some reason my mind is saying under Sony Music umbrella.

Sony sold them off years ago, it doesn't make sense to buy them again

Abnor_Mal93d ago

I thought they wanted a break from Sony to reach a bigger audience, not that Sony sold them. Well in any case I hope them future success.

Also, I know its the same company but I did try to differentiate between the two, Sony and PlayStation. Whereas Sony outside of PlayStation was not a good fit for whatever reason, I'll look it up later, PlayStation would be a better fit because is their gaming division which I believe runs somewhat separate from Sony, or what I've been led to believe some time ago.

Finally, sometimes we do things not truly seeing the depths of our actions, and may end up regretting the decision. Have you ever sold a game, only to rebuy it later.

They were under SCE Sony Computer Entertainment, same umbrella that housed PlayStation. They were separate businesses.

I believe Sony has almost always had gaming businesses outside of PlayStation. If I'm remembering right, they currently have a separate publisher focused on small indie games. Can't remember what it's called though.

Sony Music published their own games outside of PlayStation

I’m still grumpy they canceled EverQuest Next and Landmark.

porkChop93d ago

Yeah that sucked. Was a lot of potential there. I don't normally like MMOs but I was really intrigued by Next and Landmark.

_LarZen_92d ago

I was a Trailblazer in Landmark and it was so fun building things. The tools and possibilities is not something I’ve seen in a game since...

And I was so ready for a new EverQuest mmo... Makes me sad just writing this :(

Hope this means they’ll get the resources to keep improving. The DCUO broker economy has been broken for over a year. Can no longer share my millions between toons, meanwhile everything is overpriced. Worked hard trading legit. Bummer.
