Raptr Report reveals the type of gamers who play DC Universe Online

Mountain View, CA - February 4, 2011 - Raptr, a popular game tracking application, has released some new playtime stats for DC Universe Online. For gamers using the Raptr PC client to track their gameplay hours with the new MMORPG, we’ve uncovered some interesting data comparing the game with other popular titles.

The full data shows that there seems to be a lot less connection with the theme of the game (superheroes) than with the type of games that these specific gamers play. The stats show that DCUO players predominantly play MMORPGs specifically and multiplayer games in general. World of Warcraft, the number two most played game on Raptr in the last month, was also the top game that DCUO players played and stole the most playtime from. Also, 6 of the top 10 other games that DCUO players played were MMORPGs. Other multiplayer games included Call of Duty: Black Ops and League of Legends. The two other prominent superhero-themed games, Champions and City of Heroes, while ranked in the top 10, were not in the top spots.

The data pulled from the DC Universe Online gametime statistics include:

- Top 10 other games that DCUO players play

- Top 10 games that DCUO stole playtime from

- Top 9 other MMOs that DCUO players played
