DC Universe online freezing problems

106 Replies 6,915 Views Created 19-01-2011

I bought it yesterday (a day early). Installed it, all 15gb worth... Watched a cool cutscene, customised a character, played it for 2 mins and it froze. I tried playing about half a dozen times, and it didn't work for me.

 

I uninstalled and re-installed and it's the same problem. I am now unable to do it again because I have almost used all of my download for the month. I tried again this morning and it freezes in the same spot every time.

 

I phoned tech support at Sony and they said they had read nothing on the fourms of this so here you go guys.

 

Hopefully it's just a server issue but I am extremely dissappointed. You'd think after all that Beta testing they'd get it right.

 

If it's down to the game shop for selling it to me before the embargo was lifted then shame on you guys, I bought the last copy in the store yesterday and they have been selling it all week prior to official release.

 

It's a lot of money to pay for something that is unplayable at the moment.

The EU servers will be locked at 00:30 CET and brought offline at 01:00 CET for server maintenance. Downtime is anticipated to be one hour and the servers should be available at 03:00 CET
someone explain to me how offline at 1:00 then they say downtime expected to be 1 hour but servers online at 3:00 does that make sense LOL

Just thought I would also mention that I managed to get a refund after a bit of a struggle (not much but a bit). They kept saying its the servers fault, and I kept telling them the issue was around since Beta, and I didn't purchase a game to spend the next 4 weeks as their beta tester whilst my refund opportunity diminishes.

 

the way I see it, I can purchase the game again down the track when it actually works. So go get your refunds before Sony calls up the retailers and tells them not to refund anyone.

Im not happy. Bought DC on release, freezes after 2mins. Got *****, then got over it. Got home at 1:30pm  aest the next day, the game played perfectly for an hour or so. I assumed they fixed the problem. Got a msg saying world was shutting down in 30 mins. It did. The servers rebooted after an hour or so. Now im stuck with the same problem i had on day of release, freezes after 2 mins.

This is not acceptable. I bought it in adelaide yesterday for its launch. Waited all day for it to download created a character and can't get through two minutes of the game without it freezing. Just a couple hours ago tried again and it said that servers were down for maintanance so i assumed they were working on this problem but yep it's still freezing for me.Is there anyone in Australia on the PS3 who can actually play this game? I don't want to re-install it because the first one smashed my downloads for the month. Should i just wait it out and hope for a patch or return this crap?
