SOE To Compensate Affected DCUO and Free Realms Users

April 27, 2011Written by Cameron Teague

The PlayStation Network being down has affected users all over the world but has possibly been felt the most by DC Universe Online and Free Realms players. Both of these MMO’s are online only of course and both have monthly charges to play. Sony Online Entertainment knows the pain of paying for something you can’t play and they plan to make it up to players.

In a statement found on the forums for DC Universe Online & Free Realms, SOE said the following:

We apologize for any inconvenience players may have experienced as a result of the recent service interruption. As a global leader in online gaming, SOE is committed to delivering stable and entertaining games for players of all ages.

To thank players for their patience, we will be hosting special events this weekend across our game portfolio, including a Double Station Cash day on Saturday, April 30th.

We are also working on a “make good” plan for players of the PS3 versions of DC Universe Online and Free Realms. Details will be available soon on the individual game websites and forums.

No word yet on what people can expect from this “make good” plan that SOE has but we are sure they will do their best to take care of people. While it is not their fault for the PSN being down, it is still a classy move to try and help out where they can.

If you are a subscriber to either game, let us know in the comments what you think Sony Online Entertainment should do.
