Well, the beta testing of DC Universe Online must be doing extremely well because Sony Online Entertainment has announced the game has officially gone gold. Future superheros and evil geniuses can expect to have the game in hand on January 11 (January 14th in the UK) for both the PlayStation 3 and PC. The first month will be free to play, but subsequent months are priced at $14.99, with the option of lifetime membership at $199 (though this offer is PC only). Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on who you ask), console and PC players will still not be able to play together.
The open beta for the PlayStation 3 version can still be exclusively played by PlayStation Plus members, and the developers promise an epic end to the current beta saga as thanks to its adopters.
