Sony Online Entertainment's Aiming Big With Free Realms.

SOE gaffer John Smedley envisioned that the free-to-play MMO β€” available on PC and PS3 β€” could hit enormous numbers within the next five to six years. He said, "I don't see any reason why [Free Realms] can't go to 100 million [players], because there are so many kids out there."

The game currently has a player-base of 17 million which is sure to explode with the release of the PS3 version. Still, 100 million seems like a lofty target. Best put the game out on NGP too, Smedley. What's that, you think the device is a "perfect fit"?
