DC Universe Online Going Free To Play - But Is It Really Still Worth The Play

One thing that turned many gamers off in the choice of purchasing the MMO, DC Universe Online, was the fact that it required a recurring monthly fee to play it. This is coming to an end very soon... (DC Universe Online, PC, PS3)

You mean it's free after paying $60. The same price as Uncharted 3, Batman Arkham City, Skyrim and Battlefield 3 I might add. So "Is It Really Still Worth The Play?"

I don't think so. I believe it's gonna be a free download like Battalstar Gallactica online, champoins online, etc.. Apparently this is the way to go for mmo's cuz the devs end up making more money n the long run cuz they hav a bigger fanbase.

You can only make ONE account per disc. Read that again, ONE, only, and then its locked forever. Meaning no resale, no lending, no renting.

The longer they delay this change the lesser it will be played. Too many great games incoming: Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3, Skyrim, Batman Arkham City, ...

go on a pvp server with tons of players flying around Gotham n metropolis dcuo becomes straight up crack. most fun I've had in gaming this year.
quote from the dcuo home page

"Beginning late October, players will be able to download and access DCUO for free on both the Playstation®3 computer entertainment system and PC. As part of this transition, SOE is introducing three new access levels to the game: Free, Premium and Legendary. All three levels will provide access to open world game play and missions, general game updates and fixes to the game, with each level offering different game options and benefits."
sure sounds like its totally free to me.
