Sony Delays 'DC Universe Online'

By all indications, DC Universe Online looks downright awesome. I’ve always been more of a Marvel man myself, but as infrequently as good comic book games are made, I’m hopeful that maybe they’ll get this one right. Sony Online Entertainment has a solid track record, so the odds are good for DC Comics.

You’ll have to judge for yourself if this news is good or bad: SOE just announced that DC Universe Online is being delayed from its planned November 2nd release date to Q1 2011. DCUO is set to be the first-of-its-kind MMO on the PlayStation 3, and the first-ever MMO set in the DC Universe. The game is moving into beta testing, and Sony has decided to take extra time to fine-tune the game, based on beta-player feedback.

Access to the beta game will start being rolled out next week to players with VIP key cards or players who have registered at the game’s site. Pre-order the game by November 15th, and you’ll be guaranteed beta access by November 30th.

A PS3 Collector’s Edition has also been announced, which will include a DCUO Batman statue, an Art of DC Universe Online book, a DCUO Legends issue #0 comic book with a variant cover by Jim Lee, a limited edition poster of Lee’s variant cover, and a Prestige comic book that details the DCUO backstory.
