Jim Lee, Tech Support For DC Universe Online

If you’re wondering if you have to uninstall your DCU Online beta program before installing the new version – and exactly how to do that, or if you’re wondering about subscriptions, or what the practical difference between PVP and PVE are, you could call Sony tech support.

Or you could just ask Jim Lee.

The_Joey: DCUO looks great. Will it ever come out for Xbox360?

Jim Lee: Nope–its a SONY game and they want to keep it that way

The_Joey: I understand. I was just surprised that it was avail for Windows and not the Xbox360. I guess I’ll be buying a PS3 perhaps .

Jim Lee: To delete DCUO beta from PC–run DCUO installer. Choose reinstall. As it boots up, kill process. Rerun Installer, now uninstall #DCUO

Blogofoa: Should PS3 users delete the beta from their consoles?

Jim Lee: Yes

Matthewpetz: If #DCUO was available on a mac, I think i might actually care about video games.

Jim Lee: Run Bootcamp on mac then u can run @DCUO

SatelliteFeed: Quick question. With DCUO on two platforms, which had the easier controls for you? PC or PS3?

Jim Lee: I was fine with both

Blanemather: Will PS3 owners get to keep their Beta characters or do we have to start over?

Jim Lee: In beta, characters are always wiped

lancesells: I heard the cut scenes are amazing! Really looking forward to them. :0

Jim Lee: Yeah Motherland and Powerhouse were amazing :)

jlr_1969: But wouldn’t that make it easier for hackers to invade them if they know that?…I’m just saying.

Jim Lee: Not sure what you mean. It’s the naming convention to differentiate the servers

BlurUpdates: Is it true I’m gonna have to pay $15 per month for it?

Jim Lee: Yes, per most MMOs, it is Pay to Play (P2P)

Jim Lee: thanks :) @DCUO down in Austin did an AMAZIN JOB

BlurUpdates: Is it worth $15 per month?

Jim Lee: of course–the first month is free too. But don’t take my word for it, you can make your own choice then

D3wizl: is that across the board; or different depending on your jursidiction (ie i live in Aus is it $15A or the equivalent of $15US?)

Jim Lee: Not in my wheelhouse of decision making. Keep checkin www.DCUNIVERSEONLINE.com and their Facebook pg for new news and updates

marcdonaldkelly: My inner geek is terrified by how much time I could waste on a new MMO video game featuring super heroes. My wife would divorce me.
