No second hand sales of DC Universe

Posted By | On 14th, Feb. 2011 Under Industry News, News | Follow This Author @GNReith

It seems that DC Universe Online subscriptions are locked to the game discs, so don’t bother picking up a used copy of the game. Sony Online Entertainment stated to Lazy Gamer that “once the PSN key has been consumed with a disc it cannot be resold/replayed with the second user adding a sub – only the original consumer can use that account.”

“Disk and account are one,” SOE confirmed.

Thanks to Lazy Gamer for the info.

    this is a lot like most of the PC games out there this was a smart move by sony but i don’t know how long the game will last in the numbers wise. i played the beta but don’t really have that kind of time to sink into the full version plus the time that you have to put into it and the monthly subscription.

    oh man that sucks. i played the beta/demo, whatever it was. it took overnight for everything to download. then i spent an hr creating a hot green arrow type woman, then played for an hr, then never got back to it and the beta/demo period ended. it’s getting good reviews, but it’s not my thing.

    This is a game that i will not be picking up because of all of the issues that it has. meaning the sounds, connections, lag, and framerate. I appreciate what they’ve done, and im sure that if they make future DCOs they’ll be better.

      Only level 30 cap too. I can see the appeal with it being a superhero MMO and all, but I’ll be playing Arkham City for that kind of fix. Which also means there will be DLC to pay for along with the monthly fee. Add that to what you pointed out, and it’s a waste in my eyes.

      That’s a really good point Bone, i didnt even think about the DLC on top of the monthly subscription which BY THE WAY will take YOUR money out of your PS fund wallet if you have any there and you forget to cancel your subscription before your free month is up. so you need to be careful, i hear it’s a pain in the ass to unsubscribe! Aqua Out!!!

    That’s pretty standard really. Not to be a ball-buster but this isn’t revealing.

    i don’t know my past experience with sonly online has been the games are buggy. they really don’t seem to have a plan or road map for their games and then they break them with patch after patch.

    Starwars galaxies …the beta test that you pay to play.

    Planetside …started as one of the best games with big potential to grow …lets put in tons of limitations and then release thoughtless expansion packs

    Yeah i really don’t feel like doing that again

    Wow thats ridicules but i guess its a way for them to keep selling brand new copies instead of used and damn so the disc n n account are linked hmmm lets not give other companies ideas next thing u know no more used games ..

  • jbg0623

    I was really excited for this game to come out but once it did it was a major let down. I don’t want to pay to play a game I already bought. Now they reveal that once you buy it, you can never get rid of it? This game is the herpes of the Playstation Universe…………but the game is pretty good so I guess it’s like the kind of herpes you get from a really hot chick who’s totally into you………just sayin.
