'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."

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!

It's not there for me...

EDIT: Never mind it worked lol! That is so awesome... Hopefully it goes through...

Kamikaze81029d ago

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.

Snookies121029d ago (Edited 1029d 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.

Testfire1029d ago

Lol, my PC can't even dream to run this and I'm not upgrading anytime soon. Gonna sell the code on Ebay.

aCasualGamer1029d ago

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-MAN1029d ago

Does it work on steam? I want achievements !

BluEx6101029d ago (Edited 1029d 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. =)

aCasualGamer1029d ago

Guess i'm not getting this fine deal as i don't live in US and i don't have a valid adress >=/

adorie1029d ago

That game wasn't even worth a cent. It sucked

GuyThatPlaysGames1028d ago

This game has nothing to do with CoD

NeXXXuS1028d ago (Edited 1028d 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!

ginsunuva1029d ago

Why would you want the console version of a pc graphical powerhouse?

Xaphy1029d ago

because not everyone has a monster pc?

No Way1028d ago (Edited 1028d ago )

Cause I have a laptop that freezes up with too many internet tabs open! :S

Murad1028d ago

@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.

animegamingnerd1029d ago

i am tempted to do it but i am worried they would fix this and charge 60$

Snookies121029d 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.

Testfire1029d 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.

Kamikaze81029d ago

Yeah, they can't that would be illegal.

InTheLab1029d ago

It's their error,not yours. It's illegal to advertise a price and adjust it after money is exchanged...

konnerbllb1029d ago

In addition to what others have said above me, the most they could do is cancel the order.

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...

jdktech20101029d 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)

InTheLab1029d ago (Edited 1029d 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?

jdktech20101029d 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.

InTheLab1029d 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...
