DC Universe Online picks up 120k new players

Since adopting the free-to-play model earlier this week, DC Universe Online has welcomed 120,000 new PC users to the game.

So says Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley who also points out that concurrent users figures are up by a factor of four. And that’s before the company’s planned “big TV and online campaign” advertising the F2P switch kicks off. Color us impressed.

No word on what kind of growth the PS3 version has seen though.
