Free-to-play DC Universe picks up 120,000 new users
Concurrent player numbers up 400 per cent.
Superhero MMO DC Universe Online has picked up 120,000 new users since going free-to-play on Monday, according to Sony Online Entertainment boss John Smedley.
According to a post on Smedley's Twitter feed, concurrent users are up 400 per cent.
Of course, the trick will be keeping hold of all those new players, a cause that might not be helped by reports of server stability issues and long queues to log-in to the game.
