The lights are on
It appears going Free-to-Play is the best way if you have a struggling MMO game on your hands.
Since removing the monthly subscription costs earlier this month, DC Universe Online continues to see growth in its revenue and active players. Sony Online Entertainment recently announced it gained one million users in just a matter of days since going free-to-play.
The company passed along additional statistics today:
I love this game sadly it eats my broadband too fast lol.
I feel sorry for Robin....
I would love to play this when I'm done with Skyward Sword.
This game is really solid and absolutely free. No wonder people are checking it out now. I wonder if this lead to bigger MMO releases taking up a free-to-play model. I still don't mind paying a fee if the developers make it worth it through extra game content and great servers, but this might be where MMOs are going.
Games are always better when they are free.99
I've always wanted to play this game, just never got the opportunity to. Now that Skyrim is out, and then Kingdoms of Amalur afterward, I might not have time right now to play it. In the future though, I might consider it.
I was one of the ones who jumped right into this game after it went free-to-play. Took a really long time to download to my PS3 but it's been a real entertaining game so far. I've only tried it for a few hours, and while I'm no fan of grinding, this game did make me wanna fight bad guys and roam around Gotham City doing missions. I'll definitely be buying some of the DLCs and character slots so I can take advantage of its brevity, and even though I really wish there were some easy-to-earn Trophies for it, it still is a pretty cool game for me.
700%, there's your sign. hahaha. And yeah, I wish I had time for it
World of warcraft could learn something from this.
The only problem I had with my one month game card for it was that there wasn't a lot of content to even cover one month worth of play. Other than that the MMO was great.
If only I had unlimited internet..
I plan on starting mine tomorrow. I still need to install it. I sure hope it's worth the horrendous amount of Gigabytes it takes on my PlayStation 3. I do have high expectations for this game because of what I have been reading and hearing.
