Is There A RIFT Forming For Subscription Based MMOs?

From "The age of the MMO is dead. No one wants to pay for anything anymore. These common quips are thrown around by analysts, journalists, commentators and the public every year. The subject might change periodically, but essentially it’s the same discourse.

Supposedly, according to whom you choose to listen to, the age of conventional subscriptions is over. Delivery models have moved to Free-To-Pay (F2P) micro-transactional economies and the rate of this shift is only going to increase. Pay-Per-Month games have had their day – they’ve become relics of the early broadband era." (PC, Rift, Rift: Storm Legion, World of Warcraft)

Who knows, MTX's are becoming the norm in today's MMO's but not forced on some.

I still play a MMO known as Runescape, They have a f2p/p2p system still but now they have started to roll out MTX's... People are speculating that this game might end up going F2P totally now...

Well, The Life wheel turns once more...
