[Walmart] DC Universe Online (PS3/PC) - Wal-Mart - $0.05

Was just at Wal-Mart and saw this behind the glass case for 5 cents. I know it's going to be free next week but it's not a bad deal for a replacement PS3 case and a coaster

^ its only going to be FREE TO PLAY.. its not going to be free to have the game... usually their is a subscription to play but now u can play the barebones game for free.. you still need the game..

btw, this is sold out in all of the GTA for anyone looking..

So why is WM selling it for 5 cents?

no idea.. they told me that they think it is a head office error because its not under their clearance pricing but that the actual price dropped to 5 cents.. maybe they thought that it was going to be free from now on so they did that.. but its definitely not free.. just free to play instead of paying for a subscription...

btw, i am not sure about the PC version...

was able to get one copy today from the stouffville location around 5:30pm... lady checked on her gun and said basically all of the GTA has no copies left anymore...

According to my DCU:O newsletter it will be free to download on PSN. However, this is really worth getting because if you ever spend money on this game you get an elevated level of F2P.

Because the Developer is stopping all physical copies from here on out. That has become a dead SKU taking up valuable inventory/stock space, so they want to get rid of it.

Confirmed at my location. My store had 3 copies of the PC version, I sold 2. Lego Harry Potter for the PS3 was another title that dropped to 5 cents the other day. Not clearance, just a hard markdown.

Every important gaming news source says it will be free in addition to being free to play. It's going to be downloadable free from the marketplace... also it's not really barebones, seeing as you get access to everything except you have to pay for DLC's. You just get less in terms of storage space and less character slots. You don't really know what your talking about.

Free, but somewhat limited.

If you're looking for more perks or the ability to earn trophies, a subscription will be required. If none of the aforementioned matter to you, then the Free-To-Play version will suffice.
