DC Universe PS3 outsells PC version

MMO is SOE's fastest selling game ever.

The PlayStation 3 version of DC Universe Online has outsold its PC counterpart, helping the title become Sony Online Entertainment's fastest selling game ever.

SOE president John Smedley broke the news on his Twitter feed, revealing that PlayStation 3 sales of the game made up 52 per cent of the total, compared to 48 per cent on PC.

Commenting on complaints that the game was out of stock in many stores, another Tweet read, "Working on out-of-stock problems for DCUO. It's our fastest selling game ever. Should have more inventory in Monday."

The superhero MMO debuted at number 10 in the UK charts last week, but was the most downloaded title on Steam.

Eurogamer's John Bedford awarded it a decidedly unheroic 6/10 last week complaining "PC gamers accustomed to feasts of content and polish will likely feel short-changed from their subscription fee once the initial 30 day rush is over. And while it may be the best implementation of a console MMO to date, PS3 owners should still ask for more."

All might not be lost though - Sony announced this morning that it's working on a raft of new features and improvements for the game based on early feedback from players.
