F2P DC Universe Online welcomes 1 million new players
Half of them are on PS3.
One million new players have flocked to DC Universe Online since the MMO turned free-to-play, Sony Online Entertainment has announced.
They are apparently split evenly between PC and PS3.
"DCUO now joins the ranks of SOE's other successful free-to-play titles, including Free Realms and Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures," commented SOE bigwig Lorin Jameson.
Was it considered unsuccessful before?
The impact 1 million new players has had on money made wasn't mentioned. Other free-to-play games, however, operate on the assumption that 20 per cent of players will pay something. RuneScape is one of these.
DC Universe Online turned free-to-play on 1st November.
