Patching will be a problem
While the creative minds at DC Universe Online would very much like to have cross-platform play between PCs and PS3's, it's going to be a tall order to fill. The main problem seems to be simultaneous patching - a whole different beast on consoles than on PCs.
We've heard about this problem before, of course. Funcom is facing something similar as it works to port Age of Conan to the Xbox 360. SOE is in a good position to deal with it though, since it is actually a part of the company that's responsible for the PlayStation Network authentication process. "I think if anybody is going to do it and make it simultaneously seamless for people it's going to be us," said Cao. "It's just that we haven't done it yet, so we don't like to promise what we haven't delivered yet."
