    DC Universe Online Goes Free-to-Play

    We've noticed that monthly subscription fees aren't terribly popular with the RPGamer community, so this announcement should be appreciated by our readers. Now, who wants to be Batman?

    WoW killed the subscription MMO. Companies need to stop wasting their time with a model that doesn't work and re-educate players on why F2P isn't just for Korea any more.

    lets see:

    Final Fantasy XI
    Final Fantasy 14 (if they ever fix it)
    Everquest
    Everquest 2 (may have gone free to play I can't remember)
    Ultmia Online
    World of Warcraft
    *Phantasy Star Online 2 (not finalized yet)

    That's all the ones I can think of that aren't free to play...heck even Star Trek online went free to play not long ago...
    FFXI Character name: Shadowneko Server: Quetzalcoatl Main Jobs: lvl 76 THF, lvl 95 Summoner, lvl 39 Dragoon

    City of Heroes is in the process of going F2P, I was planning to put a story up about it, but it's still in "VIP Only" mode for a little while, so it's only open to people who subscribe or were subscribed before the update was pushed out.
