Did you watch Sony’s Playstation 4 reveal event? If not, you may not be aware that the PS4 shall not be backwards compatible (Play PS2/PS3 games) or allow you to download current Playstation Network titls. DC Universe Online players went ballistic at this news, the thought of all the hours spent creating heroes and villains going to waste seemed to be too much for the fans.
Today, it has been announced that despite the backwards compatible/Playstation Network issues, they will make sure that there is a way for users to play DC Universe Online for the PS4. That’s obviously amazing news for any gaming fan. However, it got even better! Alongside the announcement of DC Universe Online for the PS4, they also announced that Planet Side 2 (a first-person shooter MMO) is also coming to the next generation console!
Due to the mystery around when the PS4 is set for initial release, it’s also leaving us to wonder when the release dates will be for DCUO and Planetside 2. All we know about the two games is that they’ll be available this year as free-to-play digital downloads for the PS4.
Okay, so this is awesome! Wouldn’t you agree? Two of the best games available right now are coming to the PS4, the favorited of the next generation console. If them coming to PS4 wasn’t good enough, they will be F2P? Wow, thanks Sony! This has made the PS4 that extra bit better in my opinion, it shows that they are all about their customers and when someone is unhappy, they try to appeal and fix it. Great news from Sony!
