Sony Online Claims DC Universe MMO is its “Fastest Selling Game Ever”
Ah, the wonder of Twitter. In a recent post, SEO President John Smedley claims that the recently released superhero MMO is “Working on out-of-stock problems for DCUO. It’s out fastest selling game ever. Should have more inventory in Monday.”
Smedley also claimed the game was the best seller on Steam last week and continues to chart highly in the US and UK retail sales figures for PS3 and PC.
I’m not sure if it’ll have legs, at least on the PC, but having played hours during the beta I can attest that the game is fundamentally fun to play. The mix of DC heavy hitters like Batman & Superman next to user created heroes is a lot more enjoyable than the artificial Marvel & DC archetype clones in other MMOs.
