Tabula Rasa is Going Cheap

Posted Wed, Nov 05, 2008 by Morvelaira

One dolla, one dolla - do I hear one dolla?

Tabula Rasa, the seemingly troubled sci-fi shooter MMO, can now be yours for $0.96. That's right. Less than a dollar. Even the World of Warcraft 14 day trial sells for more money than that.

We knows that McDonald's, Wendy's, and other popular fast food restaurants are offering amazing deals on crappy food these days, but how much gaming can you get for a dollar? How about an entire MMO, filled with aliens, and guns, and lasers, complete with a free month of gameplay? Despite NCsoft's plans to tighten up the graphics on level three, Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa hasn't done all that well at retail. GameStop.com has stopped selling it, but if you act now you can snag it from Amazon.com for a mere $.96. Note the decimal point there. That's 96 cents. That's extremely sad.

If you do decided to purchase it, I'd opt for the free super saver shipping. They make excellent stocking stuffers.

For a game that has so much cool stuff coming in these days, it's overwhelmingly depressing to see it being treated like this in the retail world. If you ever doubted how hard it was to make a successful MMO, let Tabula Rasa be your guide.
