'Metro: Last Light' current $.01 on Best Buy's website

Examiner: "If you act now, and head on over to Best Buy's website, you can nab yourself a copy of Metro: Last Light for only a penny. In what's surely an error, many are capitalizing on the mistake and purchasing the title which released just two months ago." (Metro: Last Light, PC)

Update We're getting reports that Best Buy has ran out of codes and is now refunding people's orders, for what it's worth. The web page is still up if you want to attempt to purchase one. Congratulations if you managed to snag yourself a code!

Worked for me, though they give you a code to enter on their website to get the code. Kinda stupid, but I'll take it for a penny.
Snookies12  +   624d ago
Seriously appreciate the heads up on this! :]

I really wanted to check this game out, and if I do like it I'll definitely try and buy the game again to support the devs.

Guys, if i want to get this game and i don't live in US, how can i get this offer from Bestbuy?

PM me if you'd be kind enough to buy this to me.
PLASTICA-MAN  +   624d ago
Does it work on steam? I want achievements !
BluEx610  +   624d ago
Holy shit it's still active for .01 cent lol. I'm ordering like 50 of these. I just bought a Graphic Card and a day later they started a promotion for free Metro Last Light with it. I was bummed, but now I'm happy. =)

adorie  +   624d ago

That game wasn't even worth a cent. It sucked
NeXXXuS  +   623d ago
Still better than CoD
GuyThatPlaysGames  +   623d ago
This game has nothing to do with CoD
NeXXXuS  +   623d ago
It's an FPS.

Why thank you Examiner!!! This is a crazy deal!

Edit: Ah, it's the PC version! Still good, but I was hoping for the console version of the game. Still a steal!

Why would you want the console version of a pc graphical powerhouse?
Xaphy  +   624d ago
because not everyone has a monster pc?
No Way  +   623d ago
Cause I have a laptop that freezes up with too many internet tabs open! :S

@Xaphy
I actually agree with you. Sadly I would say that PC is better, but in all honesty, it better be because it costed me a ton of money to upgrade it to EVGA GTX 760 and even more with a power supply, but got to say, the Console version looks fabulous as well.
EcoSos3  +   624d ago
Nice deal...lol
animegamingnerd  +   624d ago
i am tempted to do it but i am worried they would fix this and charge 60$
Snookies12  +   624d ago
I don't think they could do that. The product is labeled as such on the website, and it is giving you confirmation before purchase that the price is $0.01. Which means you are buying it from them at THAT set price. They can't charge you anything over that, because it was their mistake. For all we know, it could have been a promotional sale or something... (Sure, it's not lol) but you get my point.
Testfire  +   624d ago
The price is legit, but it was only supposed to be a promo price for those who bought certain graphic cards, it wasn't supposed to be available to everyone. And they can't charge you any more that .01 without your consent, you consented to .01 any further charges would be illegal.
Kamikaze8  +   624d ago
Yeah, they can't that would be illegal.
InTheLab  +   624d ago
It's their error,not yours. It's illegal to advertise a price and adjust it after money is exchanged...
konnerbllb  +   624d ago
In addition to what others have said above me, the most they could do is cancel the order.
InTheLab  +   624d ago
Must have fixed it :/ Guess I'll wait for the Steam sale...

edit....never mind. If you go through Bestbuy.com it wont work, but if you click the link on Examiner, it will...

Kamikaze8  +   624d ago
Still up, try again.
jdktech2010  +   624d ago
I would feel bad for doing this. I might end up waiting for the steam sale since this is obviously a mistake and would be robbing the developers money and Best Buy (don't care as much on this one)
InTheLab  +   624d ago
Gonna buy it on Steam now. I feel terrible. Like I just walked out with a game...

Edit: So I'm on Steam and the purchase option is missing. It's only letting me pre order...wth?
#5.2.1 (Edited 624d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report
jdktech2010  +   624d ago
If you're really purchasing it on steam, wait for the daily deal. I've got a hunch it'll go for 50% of or maybe more. I think 24.99 is the sale price that will happen.
InTheLab  +   624d ago
Best Buy canceled the order after the purchase so I feel good now about waiting for an actual sale. I'm sure day 5 of Steam's sale will give me a sweet deal...
Axecution  +   624d ago
Stupid Canada. I want a code Dx

lol oh well...
Bonerboy  +   624d ago
Oh well indeed. I'll find solace in that when I do buy it the devs will see a few pennies of it.
Axecution  +   624d ago
yeah i bought it for 50 last week haha. Wouldn't have minded getting a one or two to gift to people though lol

at the same time i mean considering the amount of work that they clearly put into it i would definitely feel bad stealing it for a penny. Though maybe Best Buy would have to pay for the mistake?
Shadow Man  +   624d ago
Didn't Canada got rid of the penny
SilentNegotiator  +   624d ago
Are they minting a new 1 cent coin, or are they going by multiples of 5 cents now?
Mini0510  +   624d ago
yeah but online purchases or credit card purchases don't round.
danny818  +   624d ago
Only for pc :/
ifritAlkhemyst  +   624d ago
It's $0.01. Just buy it and sell the code.
ifritAlkhemyst  +   624d ago
Hahahahahaha. I was just about to spend 30 on Bioshock Infinite too. Many thanks, Examiner.
ThatEnglishDude  +   624d ago
No longer works. I got an email saying my order was cancelled due to not being able to verify quantities. Oh well! I already own the game anyway. It's pretty damn good!
AlexanderNevermind  +   624d ago
How could they not have copies of a digital download? I would send a complaint. They advertised it and should honor their price. Personally I have it already so it does me no good. But If they accepted payment then they need to deliver.
ThatEnglishDude  +   624d ago
Well as I understand it, it was supposed to 'ship' when you buy a graphics card, so I guess they just see no other items on the invoice, therefore being impossible to buy the code, resulting in your order being cancelled.

I'm certainly not going to make a scene by complaining to corporate about not being able to get a game that, by rights - I shouldn't have access to anyway.
Convas  +   624d ago
Good luck with that. This was an exploit, pure and simple. People took advantage and it got noticed.

You'll be laughed to scorn if you try to bring a complaint for something like this.
NoobJobz  +   624d ago
No more keys.
Kratos_1986  +   624d ago
is it possible to buy it if im out of the USA ?
TheNocturnus  +   624d ago
Nice, my order just went through. Just got to wait for the code. I also plan on selling my code on ebay.
ThatEnglishDude  +   624d ago
You will not get your code. The order will take, and you'll get a confirmation, but it won't send the follow up email with the code in.
brich233  +   624d ago
Mine went through also, just waiting for code, i wonder if they will send it.
brich233  +   624d ago
Its sold out now.
darkness625  +   624d ago
T_T y is it sold out? I wanna buy it. Not to mention it's digital copy.

hesoyam888  +   624d ago
ooo its sold out !!
Relientk77  +   624d ago
Totally missed this

:(
Orionsangel  +   624d ago
I never got a code. Because greedy mofos started buying 20 copies or more. Ruining it for everyone.
GentlemenRUs  +   624d ago
Now lets hope that all the Codes get deactivated :D

That should stop the greedy people putting them on Ebay...
danga-boy  +   624d ago
So, I am too ordered and haven't got my code yet. Stupid losers ruin it for everyone. Thanks d-bags!
Roper316  +   624d ago
Great game people should jump on this. I'm currently playing my 2nd play trough trying to get through with no kills / alarms.
Xristo  +   624d ago
Everybody should see this concerning Metro:LL and Best Buy:

http://en.reddit.com/r/Stea...
NoobJobz  +   624d ago
That means you cant sell or trade them on that site. The codes weren't actually banned. I thought the same thing when I read it last night.
#21.1 (Edited 624d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
Xristo  +   623d ago
If that is true, great. This is what got me to think it may be every code bought from Best Buy:

http://img401.imageshack.us...

Again, I have no clue what BB will actually do. I just want to warn people if they plan on buying a code from Ebay or receiving one for a trade.
NoobJobz  +   624d ago
I'll wait for a bigger discount.
Orionsangel  +   624d ago
Best Buy cancelled my order.
GamePeace  +   623d ago
A game designed from the ground up for PC Hardware is only 1$ worth, like this shit of a game...
GamePeace  +   623d ago
But hey, you can have it for 0$, if you think of the pirating Scene especially on PC, many, many developers will stick to the PC as lead with this wonderful Scene in the future, so they can make a shitload of Money...
Dagobert  +   623d ago
Screw Shit Buy, I rather spend more money and buy it somewhere else. A manager from the store called me a filthy nigger for buying a Garth Brooks CD from them.
Tzuno  +   623d ago
now if games would cost even 10$ piratery will come down and they will sell more than a accumulated 60$ price
