DC Universe Online - Monthly Subsciption Fee: Yay or Nay?!
WERE YOU EXCITED WHEN DCU Online CAME OUT ONLY TO HAVE THIS EXCITEMENT DESTROYED WHEN YOU LEARNED THERE WOULD BE A MONTHLY SUB FEE?
I wanted to write something about the recent release of DCU Online and my frustration over the monthly subscription fee that has also been tagged with it.
Firstly I was part of the masses that was really looking forward to this game arriving on our shevles (and mine) only to have this excitement dashed on sharp rocks when I learned that as well as paying £34.99 for the initial cost of the game I would also have to pay a monthly subscription fee to maintain my account.
After having previously played on City of Heroes on my PC the reality of having a game similar to this but set in the DC universe where I can react with superheroes from this world I thought was brilliant and to also have it on a console was even better as I am not an avid PC gamer.
My only frustration with City of Heroes was the monthly sub fee which I could not afford. I thought DCU online was the answer to my prayers, but alas it was not to be. (obviously the sub fee was for the upkeep of the servers and network required to run the game, I got that)
But as DCUO was on the PS3 which already has dedicated servers & network (albeit free ones) why are we being forced to pay this?!
The fact that this game is only on PS3 is a major annoyance as I am sure many of you are aware the PS network is no way near as smooth or efficiently run as the XBOX live community, therefore why should we pay a monthly sub fee for a game we have already paid for and a rubbish networking service that has many lag and crash issues. (I also understand that this game was developed by Sony by the way, so this is why its only on PS3)
Ok so rant over....this is just my personal opinion on the matter, nothing more. But I would like to open the floor up to your thoughts too...DCUO monthly sub fee - YAY or NAY?!
Thanks for reading.
