DCUO is completely free-to-play with cash shop items. 75% of the active playerbase are from consoles with the majority leading with hours played. DCUO released last year on ps4 and 40% of new registered characters from it.
To put the market in perspective. There are 80 million ps3 consoles worldwide, with ps4 selling 20 million up to date. Not to mention the Xbox market.
EQNext is confirmed, for now atleast, for a pc release first. But they are definitely in the interest to make console versions.
Is this the future of mmo's? Will action combat be redeemable? Will cartoon graphics be vindicated?
