DC Universe Online Launches Today

January 11th is launch day for SOE’s massively multiplayer super hero game DC Universe Online, at least here in the United States.

It will go live Friday in Europe.  Something about Tuesdays being launch days in the US and Fridays in Europe.

Everybody is always going on about console MMOs… well, a few people do talk it up once in a while… when they are bored…

But now somebody has done something about it.

Well, done something about it again.  And with super heroes this time.  That could be a winning combo.

This is the second console MMO title for SOE, the first being EverQuest Online Adventures which came out on the PlayStation 2 back in 2003.  It is their first, and maybe the first, PlayStation 3 MMO title.

Being part of the larger Sony corporation, you would think that SOE would have the inside track with the PS3.  Instead, SOE managed to get a Mac OS version of Free Realms out while the promised PS3 version is still somewhere out in the future.  March 11?  We’ll see.

DC Universe Online is also available on Windows.

Of course, if you were in the beta and don’t think you’re going to end up playing DCUO on your PC, SOE might have the last laugh on you.

The uninstaller is broken!

Well, it is for some people.  I must have wandered into the beta after they fixed it, as it cleaned up okay for me.  Or maybe the problem does not manifest itself Windows 7?

No, the shame of it is the  tech support response.  May you also get a personal note from the community manager if the uninstall doesn’t work for you.

Anyway, congratulations to SOE for finally getting another console MMO out the door.

    As I said in a previous post, it looked nice and was very… action oriented, but super hero games really just are not my thing. That and the controls are clearly console oriented even on the PC. You really have to hook a console controller up to your PC to play well I imagine.

    Still, here we have a console MMO. Let’s see what it does.

    DC Universe is a big title for an MMO and Sony is clearly capitalizing on it but i don’t think I’ll be jumping into the DCUO bandwagon. As much as I want to become a sidekick to Superman and Batman, getting another superhero mmo is not practical anymore.


Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
