DC Universe Online SOE's fastest-selling game ever
President of Sony Online Entertainment announces superhero MMORPG is an instant hit; tops the Steam software sales leaderboards; PS3 sales not announced.
Sony Online Entertainment's massively multiplayer online role-playing game DC Universe Online is proving to be a massive success for its maker. According to the publisher, the title has used its superhuman strength to become SOE's fastest-selling game ever.
The news comes via the Twitter post of SOE president John Smedley, who said the game is evaporating from store shelves.
"Working on out-of-stock problems for DCUO," he said. "It's out [sic] fastest selling game ever. Should have more inventory in Monday."
Smedley also used the social networking space to tout Steam sales figures. Smedley said DC Universe Online was #1 in sales on Steam last week. He did not offer further specifics as to how well the PS3 iteration is selling.
Set within the DC Comics world, DC Universe Online lets players create a superhero or villain and fight alongside or against iconic comic book characters, such as the Joker, Batman, Superman, and others. It was developed under the creative direction of famed comic book artist Jim Lee.
