Massively has been covering the Free to Play movement in MMORPGS extensively.
Here’s some of what they had to say about the reality of the MMORPG payment model.
f you follow MMO news at all, you probably caught the fact that Star Wars: The Old Republic is going free-to-play this fall. This is news only in the most abstract sense of the word. Seriously, it’s been three years since Dungeons & Dragons Online made the switch. Basically every title in the world has now converted over and found out that F2P is more or less a license to print money. Free-to-play is not the future of MMOs; free-to-play is the right now and has been for a while.
This week’s installment of Ask Massively does not cover free-to-play conversions, but as you all know, I’ve never been a fan of strongly linking the opener to the rest of the article. No, this week we’re talking about Blade & Soul. If you’ve got a question for a future installment of the column, leave it in the comments below or mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions may be edited slightly for clarity and/or brevity.
