SOE: Patching Concerns May Prevent DC Universe Online PS3-PC


290w ago - Chris Cao, 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, it€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.

€We don€t want the console guys to get [updates] earlier or later or either way,€ he said. €And since they€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, it€s going to be us. It€s just that we haven€t done it yet, so we don€t like to promise what we haven€t delivered yet.€
