, Creative Director at SOE-Austin, has said that they want DC Universe Online to allow PS3-PC cross-platform play. Chris added that the problem is that when it comes to updating them it is much more troublesome when updating through the PlayStation Network.
To quote: He explained that with PCs, itââ‚¬™s easy to have players download enormous files, whereas on consoles, there are different requirements as to how much space the file can take.
Cao also said it was partly a production process issue. To allow for cross-platform play, the company has to make sure to get updates out for both platforms simultaneously.
ââ‚¬śWe donââ‚¬™t want the console guys to get [updates] earlier or later or either way,ââ‚¬ť he said. ââ‚¬śAnd since theyââ‚¬™re two such different systems, we really need to work on our side to make sure that [simultaneous updates] happen.
But I think if anybody is going to do it and make it simultaneously seamless for people, itââ‚¬™s going to be us. Itââ‚¬™s just that we havenââ‚¬™t done it yet, so we donââ‚¬™t like to promise what we havenââ‚¬™t delivered yet.ââ‚¬ť
