The Agency May Not Have Subscription Fees

Taking a page from Guild Wars and Free Realms, Sony’s upcoming MMO for PC and PS3 may not have a monthly fee.

In an interview with Kikizo, Kevin O’Hara of SOE Seattle candidly admits that their business model is still up in the air, and that subscriptionless systems are definitely on the table:

“We’re acutely aware that shooter players are not used to playing (sic) monthly fees, so I doubt we’ll go for an outright $15 a month, which works on some of our other projects. So we’re checking out Free Realms to see how they’re going to do with their micro-transactions, and we might incorporate some of that. We’ll definitely have some ad revenue models. The Agency’s the perfect place for some in-game product placement.”

Tell me for certain that there are no monthly fees, and I’ll go preorder a copy TODAY.
