IGN.com DCU and PS2 going to PS4


Linkage

When Sony announced that the PlayStation 4 wasn't going to be backwards compatible or allow you to download current PlayStation Network titles, DC Universe Online players freaked out. Had the hours spent creating heroes and villains in the MMO been a waste?

Today, Sony Online Entertainment has an answer: no. DC Universe Online is coming to the PlayStation 4 -- and so is Planetside 2, the first-person shooter MMO currently available for PC.
Here's the vid

I feel maniacal laughter swelling inside of me... Let the console slaughter begin.

Bring fourth my white horse... so I can run people down with it.

Time to settle the gamepad v mouse&keyboard debate . . . and by 'settle' I mean destroy the gamepad users and make them cry.

Not sure how you got that, it's pure speculation really. But I am also very interested in learning the answer, if it's a cross platform system (as in everyone plays on the same servers) it'll be a huge breakthrough

The odds of the PC and PS4 sharing servers is incredibly low. The PS4 version is most likely going to lag behind the PC version as the dev team works on the PC version and then another internal team ports the changes to the PS4 version.

They are already set up as a PC development shop. The core of the game is there.

More players equals more money for SOE.
More money for SOE equals bigger and better updates for the game.

This is really what it comes down too.

They aren't going to abandon the PC version and just start developing the console version, that makes absolutely no sense with over 2 years of dev time on the PC version. They probably have an internal team that has been working on a the Forgelight engine on the PS4 and another small internal team doing the port. Given the hardware of the PS4, if they can get the engine running smoothly it should port well.

Does anyone else recognize that beeping sound when the video types the text?

I think it's the exact same sound file as the PS1 lock on beep lol

We knew it was going to happen. SOE weren't particular subtle about it. Why wouldn't SOE release their own title on the new Sony console?
Only things I'll be interested in is how they are going to change PS2 to work with a gamepad (Unless they are just going to go for mouse+keyboard) and what kind of effect the console version will have on the PC version, both directly and indirectly.
I don't see it going cross platform, but anything is possible and it is F2P.

The future of this game got seriously better, great news! I assume though that PS4 players will be on a separate server.

Awesome video btw, using real player voices is a great way to promote the game.
