    Icon11 Free realms "free" ????

    Hey since the jobs for new players can only go up to lvl 4.... is this kinda slowly going onto the "wow" road where its going to be p2p???and only have a 10 day trial??? or will this be all the free restrictions?

    Well, we don't know much of SOE's future plans. Most people define the Free in FreeRealms to mean liberty more than inexpensiveness, anyway.

    We don't know if SOE will be placing more restrictions on the "freeness" of the game anytime in the future. Some people think that trial jobs are more liberating, too.

    Industry news I've been reading suggests that more and more games will probably be set up like Free Realms. The trend for many games is to allow free play with restricted content (which is much the same a trial) with a fee for full content access.

    Also, it should be noted that while Microsoft's X-box Live has long required payment, Sony's Playstation platform has continued to provide free multiplayer through the console. This ultimately means that Sony has sacrificed some potential profit here and may seek ways to provide content for a fee, though a recent Sony statement says they will continue to support multiplayer functions for free.

    It means FREE as in exploring not no money.

    There is a very slim chance Free Realms will become P2P. Many people will be mad at SOE. But what they mean by 'free' in Free Realms is that you're free to be whoever you want to be. Remember, in the song "It's your World" they say "Go for the dreams that you have!"

    It is sad the way SOE treats noobs, but without money SOE would go out of buisness and that would mean no more FR!!!

    I wouldn't worry too much about Sony making Free Realms P2P.

    You know how they have coupons in the paper for the grocery store where you can get a few cents off an item? They can do this because they know that the coupon will bring in more money. Some people will only buy the item and leave, but others will spend awhile shopping for other things.

    If Free Realms only has a half a million subscribers - that comes out to about $3 million per month. SOE has provided a lot of content for free that many have fun and are creative with. A subscription just allows you to do more things.

    If you're enjoying Free Realms that's really all that matters.

    Not to mention the SC spent every month, as well as some players that subscribe and never play.
