Mmh. I don't see a great trakc record of Sony for making stunning MMOs. But even if that were the case: I won't start to play a 'free' game that suddenly starts to cost something.
And it will suddenly start to cost something. Those 'free' MMOs always do. It the same old trick, agqain and again and agan. If they want money from me, they should say so clearly. If the product is really good I might even donate some money.
@Nils - I watch lots of TV for free that multibillion dollar corporations spend hundreds of millions of dollars to produce.
Nor do i think I would enjoy this blog more if Tobold started charging for it.
In fact, advertising/product placement supported games might get around the problem that uncapitalists have that perhaps someone who spent more money might have something better. NVM, many of the people most offended by RMT also are not big fans of multinationals. Still, your F2P could allow you to get a brown sparkley pony by grinding for 100 hours, a green one for RMT or a red BMW M3 pony with a code from the BMW web site.
