DC Universe Online Articles
I’ve been an avid player of Daybreak’s DC Universe Online MMO since the PC beta. The Windows and PlayStation 3 release happened way back in January of 2011. Back then it was owned by Sony Online Entertainment. Call me crazy but I bought the collector’s edition being an avid DC Comics reader, even today, and I also spent money in-game on the PC version. Then the move to Next-Gen consoles happened and I jumped on the PlayStation 4 (PS4) bandwagon as playing with a controller there seemed more natural to me. I also spent money there as well. Now the same 8-year-old game arrives on Nintendo Switch and for some reason I feel invigorated again.
