In early 2005, Sony Online Entertainment's and Warner Bros.' interests in the online gaming business were very far apart.
This game looks pretty fun. I hope SOE + Warner make their money back.
they will make their money back on subscription fees alone easily.
There's a subscription fee? :(
Interesting article. Always did prefer DC to Marvel anywho :)
the game is fun..... Only thing that bothers me is the level cap of 30.
Dont forget the BUGS.. grrr.. .. other then that... :D
yea i bet in 2 months they will raise it to 40 and so on. i love this game im not for the lvl 30 but it makes it easier for me to try every class while i wait. Great game so far
.....pretty much DC is owning marvel in animated films. marvel hasnt even bring nothing decent since PLANET HULK. on the other hand DC came out with batman under the red hood and the up and coming ALL STAR SUPERMAN. even though im OT, marvel is meh while DC is !!!
but Marvel owns them in Live Action film i.e. Iron man, Spiderman + Wolverine Origins. I am hoping the new green Latern movie does well, but the last superman movie stunk worse than Xmen 3.
thats true, marvel has more live action films out there. but SAM RAIMI spiderman films were utter crap. i hope this reboot can do justice.
problem with marvel Movies and Cartoon movies is the plot is always so cheesy written the character arn't well explained and everything seem slike a mash up. I own most of them DC and Marvel and marvel only has afew i even would watch a 2nd time where in DC. Justice League was good the red hood was good wonder woman was good etc. Avengers was pretty lame Doctor strange was cool but the rest were way to simpel and mashed up. All opinion feel free to disagree.
Superman:Doomsday is still my favorite one to date.
It maybe targeted towards hardcore, but I being a casual one was really looking forward to it. But ever since they stated that it'll be subscription based, I had to back-out. It's just too much to spend on one game, especially considering that in MMOs it takes a good amount of months (providing you have that much time) to reach a level where you can really begin having some fun. Maybe if they charged a little less. The game is already $60, but for what? Only one month free play which is hardly enough on MMOs. But good luck to Sony on this one. It'll be interesting to see how it fares, especially with WOW being it's biggest competition.
u have to put it in perspective. If you bought this game and loved it and only played it for the next couple of months $15 is much cheaper then bbuying the next best game to come out. I can see it being a problem if you stopped playing to play other games but if this is a game you like and continue to only play this game for the next 3-6 months then 15 is really cheap. if you continue to buy new games that expensive.
You got a point. But as I said, 6 months is less for something like this, but I guess good enough for someone like me. But yeah, you really have to be into this game to continue playing for worthwhile period.
I want to play this game so bad. I hope it works well.
DC/Warner game developers could not manage to make an MMO, and once the negotiations between Sony and Marvel fell apart Warner decided that it would be best to get Sony online, the makers of the popular Everquest, on board. So that's how DC online came about, if the talks between Sony and marvel had gone well then we would have had a marvel online MMO. Apparently Sony had a plan all along to make an MMO that took place in either DC or Marvel universe, being that marvel was doing so good in the box office at the time Sony naturally wanted to do a marvel MMO, no one expected DC to come outta no where with the Dark Knight and Batman AA. Sony and Warner must be very happy right now. I have 15 people on my friends list and 8 of them are playing DC online, I think this game is going to do very well, because it's a great game.
alot people will miss out on this awesome mmo. this game has become crack to me, I haven't played gt5 sense tuesday morning. I have been playing dc universe online for 13hrs.
I've never got into a MMO before but I might even have a pop at this one- think Sony might have a bit of a hit on their hands. Who knows it might really take off cos some of the comments you see are very much like those from the early days of other very big MMOs with regard to how addictive it is.
