    This game (for both PC and PS3) hits stores on Tuesday, 1/11/11.

    The cinematic trailer (which was created before the game's release date was changed from November 2010) can be viewed here.

    I checked the starting rates to play this. Dear me it's dear for a game that is basically nothing but a DC clone of "City of Heroes"...

    I opted for Rift as my next MMO - should keep me going until SWTOR or GW2 comes out.

    Yeah at $15 a month, I find myself no longer interested.

    Good luck to DC & Sony.

    Not quite a clone, as word has it that this game will play more like Marvel: Ultimate Alliance than City of Heroes and most other MMO's.

    The fact that this game will be on the PS3 (as well as on the PC) helps those of us whose PC's are way too old and underpowered to handle most current games. ;)

    The livestream I'm watching of this has peaked my interest, and with $15 off at Direct2Drive, I'm strongly considering jumping in - even if its only for a month.

    On the other hand, I just got done with Cataclsym, and returned to the real world - I'm not sure it would be wise to jump straight back into another MMO.

    The character creation stuff looks great but just like City of Heroes the actual game looks pretty dull

    The "Fight for the Light" DLC pack is now available. :cool:

    Actually, it's more of an unlock than it is a download, since the content was already included in the last update download.


    For PS3 players, simply go to the PSN Store, then in this order:

    • Choose Add-Ons
    • Choose Disc-Based Game Add-Ons
    • Choose A-L
    • Choose DC Universe Online Add-ons
    • Choose Download Now


    And you're good to go. :)
