LEGO Universe Closing In 2012

Legos, targeted at children and you expect paying customers?

"Could the same happen to DC Universe Online? "

The article never mentions DC Universe, lol. Anyway, it's to be expected. It's too core of a franchise to expect customers to continuously pay for it.

Lol and not only that, DCUO just went F2P and apparently has gained quite a few people. Hell, i dont think i have seen a single game go from P2P to F2P and NOT go in a profitable direction. Somehow i doubt DCUO will get canceled anytime soon.

Funny I get a reply for this because I was just reading an article stating that DC Universe servers usage was up 600% after it went F2P. I guess this makes this article even more silly, lol.

Yep, seems like they randomly threw in DCUO for no reason what so ever.

Why must every company try to chase the MMO dollars. Not everyone can make a game like WoW. In fact there has not been a game like it since it's release. Only everquest (which pre-dated WoW).

I have a feeling the same thing is going to happen to the new Star Wars MMO. They should just have made it a single player game and it would have made bank. Instead they wanted to chase the MMO money.

We will see.
