Sony Online Entertainment was recently compromised through another web attack. The hacker group posted information claiming it had been taken from an SOE server. TEAM ORBIT almost ran that story last week, but decided to wait and see if DC Universe Online servers were going to go down. Fortunately, Sony's response was to release Update 3. We tip our collective hats to Sony, for weathering this most recent crisis in a heroic manner.
Unfortunately their HUD Alpha Slider is a weak effort that does not help with the making of machinima. Sony does not seem to understand that machinima videos drastically increase mmo communities, by providing free viral advertising, something SOE desperately needs right now.
TEAM ORBIT is fully capable of modding this game with impunity, and making it possible to shoot these videos with or without Sony's blessing. That being said, we are still dedicated the success of DCUO, and hope in earnest that Sony Online Entertainment will soon fill the gaps in their content.
