To quote: Hello, everyone. My name is Jens Andersen, aka @Spytle, and I'm the Senior Creative Director on DC Universe Online. When PlayStation first put a callout for DCUO PS4 questions on Twitter, I was excited to see them roll in; it was hard to keep myself from answering them right away, but I managed to restrain myself.
Thanks to everyone that submitted questions - it's great to see so much interest in DC Universe Online on PS4. I'm excited to finally start answering them, so without further adieu, let's get started.
@Arkham_InmateJH: What exactly is changing with DC Universe Online? (source)
Jens Andersen: There are a ton of things changing in DCUO right around the time of the PS4 launch - many of these will be available on all platforms.
First of all, players will see the amazing power of PS4 popping off the screen thanks to the art enhancements we made to the PS3 assets. The game looks and runs amazingly smooth - performance has really improved. We're targeting 1080p at 60 frames per second.
110w ago - Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) Executive Director of Development Lorin Jameson has shared details today on DC Online Universe, which he states is now free to play your way on PS3!
To quote: Remember back in September when we announced that DC Universe Online was going to be Free-To-Play? Well, it's here!
Starting today you can download DCUO from the PlayStation Store for free, and play all you want with no monthly fee required.

Now, you can see for yourself how DCUO offers the best of both worlds. Fight, fly, speed, battle with friends, pummel your enemies, explore the amazing locales of the DC Universe, hobnob with Wonder Woman... all for free!
We're really excited about this transition because you all have been asking us to make this change, and now we've done it - we're making DCUO accessible to so many more players.
We heard all of you out there who told us at conventions, on Facebook and elsewhere that you'd love to jump in to the game, if only it didn't have that pesky monthly fee. Well, now's your chance. With our three...
117w ago - Sony Online Entertainment Executive Director of Development Lorin Jameson has announced today that DC Universe Online for PS3 is going free-to-play!
To quote: What could possibly be better than battling with thousands of other players online in the first, and only, action MMO on the PS? How about battling FOR FREE?
That's right, DC Universe Online will soon be free to download from the PlayStation Store, and free-to-play with no monthly fees required.
So what's the catch? There is none. The entire game will be open for you to play for free. We have gotten a lot of feedback from gamers asking for an opportunity to play without a subscription requirement. So, that got us thinking about how to offer access to the game in a way that allows gamers to play their way.
We wanted something that would give players options. We know different types of gamers are playing - and want to play - DCUO, and we want each person to be able to play in a way that best fits their style. That's why we've created three levels of access to the game:
• Free Access - Just like it sounds. Download and play the game for free. You also get all ongoing game updates (except DLC packs).
• Premium Access - This next level of access opens up to you if you spend...
148w ago - Update: Dutch site PS3Clan.nl has now confirmed that it is indeed possible to share your DC Universe Online PS3 disc with a friend and play the game for free, noting simply that both users will need to pay the subscription fee.
While not as bad as previous rumors, today LazyGamer.net (linked above) reports that Sony has confirmed DC Universe Online PS3 discs are locked to a single PSN account connected to their first player.
Essentially what this means is when you buy and play DC Universe Online, your PSN account will be automatically tied with that specific PlayStation 3 game disc.
If other PSN accounts try to play the game using that disc, they will be denied. Only you, the first player, will be able to play it.
To quote: "We discovered that DC Universe becomes linked to your account when you activate it, destroying your ability to sell it, trade it or rent it.
The folks at SOE were very quick to respond to our enquiry, and they had the following to say:
"Once the PSN key has been consumed with a disk it cannot be resold/replayed with the second user adding...
