DC Universe revenue up 700% post free-to-play

Player numbers growing 6% every day.

Daily revenue from superhero MMO DC Universe Online is up 700 per cent since it adopted the free-to-play model on 1st November, according to Sony Online Entertainment boss John Smedley.

Smedley Tweeted the figure earlier today, along with a number of other stats.

Apparently, revenue is split 47 per cent from the PC version and 53 per cent from the PlayStation 3 version.

The game's userbase is growing by six per cent a day, while 85 per cent of daily log-ins are returning players.

The most popular in-game purchases are additional character slots and the Vanguard of the Heavens character skins.

Earlier this month, SOE announced that the game has attracted a million new users since the shift to free-to-play.
