SOE president John Smedley announced on Twitter today that 120,000 new players signed up for DC Universe Online on PC since going free-to-play on November 1. Smedley also revealed that the game’s number of concurrent users increased 400% during that time. Numbers for the PS3 version were not provided. The game has seen a few server issues since Tuesday due to the influx of new players, but hopefully Sony will get things sorted soon.

    I saw this on steam as I was mucking about with teh Humble Bundle games so set the install going last night. It had to download about 9GB so I left it going overnight.

    I get back home from work tonight and decide to give it a go, run the game and it prompts me to do a 6GB update. Why didn’t steam just install the correct version or update it afterwards?

    Steam is bogged down they are suspending downloads to control the amount of traffic so when the game was probably finished, the system was so overloaded it never added you to the que.
