Sony Online's DC Universe garnered generally strong reviews, but failed to achieve success as a subscription-driven massively multiplayer game. To jumpstart  the game's player base, Sony made a decision to change DCUO to a free-to-play business model. So far, it looks like the move is a success.

Today, Sony Online revealed that one million new players have signed up to play since the game went free-to-play.

"DC Universe Online's transition to free-to-play has been welcomed by the community and gamers with heroic enthusiasm. In just one week alone, 1 million new players have joined DCUO with a 50/50 split between PC and PS3."
