DC Universe Online: PC / PS3 Problems?

By Peter Chubb - Jan 12, 2011

DC Universe Online had been in the development stage for a little over two years, but was finally released on January 11, 2011. The game is a joint venture with Warner Bros and Sony Online Entertainment, and is not only available for the PS3 but for the PC as well. Now you will be able to control not only the heroes but the villains of the DC comics as well.

As the game has only been available for a day we do not expect much in the way of problems, but that has not stopped a few reports coming in. The first issue that we came across on the GameSpot Forum was the fact that the redeem code did not work for one user, we wonder if this has happened for anyone else?

Also another users on the same forum had a problem with launching the game. This was also another code issue, but there is a detailed way in how to get he game to load, which you can read for yourself here.

We have noticed a few more issues that have been posted on GameFAQS, again this is the PS3 version, we have no details if these problems that we will list bellow affect the PC version at all. The first is the ‘No ground glitch’. What happens here is when the ground has not fully rendered, then there is a small chance that you can fall through it.

The most worrying glitch is how the game can wipe all your saved data on your PS3 – now if true that is one to worry about. These are just some of the problems that people have been experiencing with DC Universe Online, we do not have any issues with PC issues just yet – maybe you know of one or two?

    i have recently put this game on my partners laptop and it keeps coming up with XINPUT1_3.dll missing from computer… and tells us to reinstall the game when it tooks us almost 3 days to install in the first place, i have this game on my laptop and am also having problems that everytime i log on it needs to update which takes forever… having had this game previously i WAS happy with it but now after the problems since re installing im verrrryyyy unhappy with this game and have been forced to make a new account since it takes 24hours before i can get my old password… MAJOR thumbs down from me and im verry disappointed with what has been done to the game.

    Rant over!

    Deleting the game and will not recommend it to anyone!

    Bought the PS3 version and ended up returning it. It took 2 1/2 hour for PS3 to do all updates for game and whaen it was done, it wouldn't launch. Tried 10 times and nothing. Got fustrated and returned back to Amazon for a refund.

    DC Universe is a great idea. But, the execution is horrible. 3 long downloads which all total more than 3 hours before actual gameplay. I get the qued message im line waiting as number 437, then after the wait for that they disconnect me and I try all over again for 8 times. When in gameplay, there is some bugs with regenerating your health when getting beat up and running away. You hide on a roof or in a corner but still no health coming back. Acrobatic power is hit or miss on the controls. When you try your flight power to escape from death it makes you hover in the air till your dead. Being in a group with people to do missions sucks because if you choose one of your mission the other person cant see where to go. Leveling up is easy till lvl 10, then you just want to start another character because you die too easy for your lvl 10, 9 or 8 missions. YOU CAN MAKE WOMAN characters nipples be seen by having skin as glow the decrease brightness took look like flesh. No, I wasnt doing this on purpose the $h!t just happen.

    ive had plenty of problems. for starters my redeem code wouldn't work. then when it finally did i had too do 3 seperate updates. i've had the game since release on friday, around 3pm. and i still haven't played it. the 3 and hopefully last update is still going. it's up too 61% and has been going for 41 hours 37 min's. i've contacted playstation and they said they've had no reports of this problem and theirs nothing they can do. ive to just let it run its course. so it looks like ive had my pants pulled down.
