Leah posted a article in Industry NewsOut of nowhere, just like Phantom R, it appears that Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure will be ported to iOS sometime this winter. The announcement comes from Sega's Japanese website under the upcoming releases section. This iOS port of Rhythm Thief will apparently be free-to-play (which is a pretty much a steal, considering how good it is). However, according to the website for the game, there will be some unknown parts of the game that will require microtransactions. Also mentioned are new unknown modes and social features, no doubt to cater to the smartphone gaming crowd. While this iOS release of Rhythm Thief is Japanese-only so far, there's no doubt Sega will want to bring it to North American shores as well. We'll see! Would you play this free-to-play version of Rhythm Thief?
Leah posted a article in Industry NewsThis is the inevitable moment we've all been waiting for, folks. EA finally gave in and they're making Star Wars: The Old Republic free-to-play. The change will happen sometime this fall and the F2P version will give players the option of choosing from any of the eight Star Wars character storylines up to level 50. Individual purchases and subscriptions will be available for those who want an unlimited game experience and exclusive content. Here's what GM of BioWare Austin, Matthew Bromberg, had to say about this massive jump: "Players want flexibility and choice. The subscription-only model presented a major barrier for a lot of people who wanted to become part of The Old Republicâ„¢ universe." Executive Producer of Star Wars: The Old Republic, Jeff Hickman, also added this: â€œSince launch, we“ve been listening to feedback from our fans and adding new content and refining The Old Republic at a breakneck pace. We believe we are in a position to help improve the service even more, not only by continuing to add new content, but also by expanding the game to many more Star Wars fans, increasing the populations on worlds and the vibrancy of the community.â€ Star Wars: The Old Republic will also go on sale sometime this August for $15 and includes a complimentary one-month subscription. What are your thoughts on Star Wars: The Old Republic going free-to-play? Do you think it was the best decision? Will you be playing the MMORPG now, if you haven't already?
