Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)
I see Warcraft has also gone free to play. Question: is this considered an ominous thing, as in "we can't get enough people to buy into it, so we're rolling the dice", or is this actually some kind of evolution at work. I have to admit the idea of paying a fee has kept me away from most of these types of games especially as I'm in the same position as the poster above who says he rarely has time to play anyway. But if it's free I might give it a shot.
