DC Universe Online here in less than a month, pricing announced too

Jump in the Batmobile and put on that cape; DC Universe Online is almost with us. January 11th 2011 is when the game hits stores in the US, with EU following on Jan 14th. And yes, that’s both the PS3 and PC versions.

Exciting news, but will SOE’s MMO give your wallet money saving powers? It certainly will for the first 30 days; the game comes with a free subscription for that length of time. After that it’ll set you back $15/€13 a month if you want to keep playing, or you can buy a lifetime subscription for a whopping $199/€180. The game itself costs $49.99 on PC, $59.99 on PS3.

We’ve done the math; you’d have to play for over a whole year for that lifetime subscription to be worth it. See what you think after the first free month, right?
