This Is Why Games Are Going Free To Play

Wondering why going “free to play” is so trendy right now? Consider MMO Age of Conan. In May, it launched a F2P version. It’s since doubled its revenues and increased subscriber numbers.


  • Ergh!!! I’m sick of these one sentence posts.
    Please provide actual information, I thought this was a gaming news blog not an emulation of Twitter.

    • I don’t come to kotaku to read other websites articles, that extra click should be there only as a source link for an article written by a Kotaku journalist, not what it’s being used for in alot of these posts; i.e. Write a headline and link someone else’s work…not cool.

  • The whole network (well at least Kotaku, Lifehacker and Gizmodo) are going way downhill. I reckon the only reason I’m still reading these blogs is for the AU stories. If it was just the US ones I would have stopped reading already.

  • @Kotaku,

    I’d like to report a website error. Many of your articles keep getting chopped off after 1-2 sentences. There’s not even graphics or anything. It’s like the page is just repeating the headline page blurb as the article itself.
