Tabula Rasa is Now Worth $1
You may be reading that title up there and thinking that’s a typo; like I must’ve forgotten a zero or something. And you’d be right, I did forget something: not to round up.
Richard Garriot’s Tabula Rasa has fallen on hard times lately — what with other high-profile MMOs like Age of Conan and Warhammer Online stealing away their thunder — but I don’t think we realized quite how far the game has been sinking. Many retailers, including Gamestop, have stopped carrying the game altogether; but the clearest indicator that all is not well with NCSoft’s space MMO probably comes from Amazon.com. Right now, the online retailer has dropped the price of Tabula Rasa to $0.96 (once again, no, that’s not a typo).
I never thought I’d see the day where I could have a single dollar in my hand and either get a double cheeseburger at McDonald’s or a high-profile MMO, but here we are. Just another example of how difficult it is to top the mighty empire that is WoW.
