DC Universe Online producer, Wes Yangai, has told CVG that PS3 has given the MMO a completely new audience.

“The PS3 opens up an entirely new player base for us, and it’s one that we’re incredibly excited about. They may not be familiar with the persistent online side of our game, but they will get the action part immediately,” said Yangai.

“Bridging the gap between these two game genres is something we’re very confident we can pull off. And to your broader point, the current console generation is the first one to fully embrace online functionality across the board, including all of the pieces required for an MMO, such as a mass storage device and broadband Internet access.

“MMOs take a long time to build, so I’m sure there are others coming to the consoles as well.”
