DC Universe Online new microtransaction market opens

Sony Online Entertainment has introduced microtransactions to the world of DC Universe Online, allowing users to purchase items such as repair bots for a small fee.

The DCUO Marketplace is online from immediate effect, though it clearly needs to be populated with more swag to gather interest. Currently users can pick up repair bots that allow you to fix yourself up while on the move, and Vault Tickets which give you access to a variety of premium items.

Currently, SOE charges a monthly subscription for DCUO but with signs that the population is dwindling in-game could the arrival of microtransactions suggest that the superhero MMO will move to a free to play model sooner than SOE would have liked?
