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.

SOE should learn to advertise theres games !!!!
I found out about star wars galaxies 4 years after it was out… i wouldnt even know about dc universe if it wasnt for the fact the guild i was in talked about it… My point being all soe games suffer because of the failure of there ability to market there games…

If they was to market games such as swg , even at 7 yrs old, it would make a huge diffrence in new players, and maybe new decent content to game like new plannets to play on ..

Dc uninvers is a well polished game and amazing gameplay , but it lacks playerr…. theres 6 servers and none are full :S

ADVERTISE SOE YOU GET ENOUGH MONEY TO DO IT …INVEST IN YOUR GAMES .
