When Sony announced that the PlayStation 4 wasn't going to be backwards compatible or allow you to download current PlayStation Network titles, DC Universe Online players freaked out. Had the hours spent creating heroes and villains in the MMO been a waste?

Today, Sony Online Entertainment has an answer: no. DC Universe Online is coming to the PlayStation 4 -- and so is Planetside 2, the first-person shooter MMO currently available for PC.

What's up with the sudden wave of Sony news? Riding dat postive tLoU wave, I guess.

I expect Everquest Next also go appear on the system. Actually it will probably be the case for all SOE games.

With cross-platform play in tow, I wonder?
I see no reason to separate PS3 and PS4 players in DCUO, at the very least.

Planetside 2 needs a wayyy better tutorial/introduction to be console friendly. Or perhaps some sort of matchmaking system that's better than the "instant action" thing they have now.

Okay, I would make fun of it being too obvious, but I wouldn't have guessed DCUO at all, so the joke's on me.

PS2 is a nice get I think, especially if it's launch.

Happy about Planetside 2. Was pretty hyped about the game but my PC sucks. Hope it plays well on the PS4.

With the right marketing it coulld be a big exclusive for Sony.

I'm happy about both. DCUO is a really fun MMO that can be enjoyed for many hours for free. It is like Crackdown meets Everquest.

Unsurprising but good news. Confirmed for this year too so that is nice.

Sweet! My PC can't even handle Planetside 2 on low-medium settings. I can finally play it.

PS2 is great, I really wanted to play it on PC but it was a bit too choppy for me.

Awesome!

Are these the first "real" big F2P games to come to consoles?

I mean, I can imagine spending hours and hours playing Planetside 2 on PS4 without even paying a single cent. That's fucking awesome and pretty unique for consoles.

Good news for Planetside and PS4 fans. Will be interesting to see if they show it off at the E3 presser.
