Sony Online Entertainment's free-to-play MMO Free Realms is finally making its way to the PlayStation 3 on March 29. Yes, it will be free-to-play on the console, too.
"Free Realms continues to break new ground in the gaming industry," says SOE president John Smedley, "it will be the first free-to-play MMO to hit any console, the first family-friendly MMO to hit any console, and the second MMO, after our recent release of DC Universe Online, to hit the PlayStation 3 to date."
SOE says the PS3 version of the game will feature "familiar activities, minigames and adventures found in the PC versions," just with an updated user interface. The game will be downloadable from the PlayStation Store, and will feature Trophies. Yes… free trophies and pink ponies. It's a deal no one can pass up!
