Sony DC Universe Online goes freemium

For those of you that have never heard of this game before, it's called DC Universe Online, created and run by Sony, and it functions as a MMORPG or massively multiplayer online role-playing game and it was released in January of this year to throngs of ravenous comic book hero fans.
