"According to a reliable source, Turbine is currently eyeing their MMO, Lord of the Rings: Online, for an Xbox 360 release. The source added that Turbine has hit a snag, unrelated to the development process. Microsoft, allegedly, won't commit to allow Turbine to utilize a free-to-play model, which is what the developer desires for the console version of LOTRO.
The good news is we're hearing that Microsoft is close to finalizing an MMO model for Xbox LIVE. This is a model that, hopefully, won't exclude Silver members or force Gold subscribers to pay for two services simultaneously."
