Free Realms now at 3 million

Weren’t we just talking about Free Realms last week? Oh right, that part about it having 2.5 millions players. Yeah, that was…Wait, what? Now it’s at 3 million? It seems to be the case as Sony Online Entertainment has now confirmed that its free-to-play MMO has hit 3 million.

“SOE worked diligently over the past four years to ensure that Free Realms would take the online space by storm,” said John Smedley, president of Sony Online Entertainment. “We are pleased to be able to provide such a vast, in-depth and, most importantly, fun world to an average of 500,000 new gamers per week.” To celebrate the milestone, SOE will hand out the “3M Pet Party Pack,” to the first 3 million players. Apparently it’s filled with things you can use for your virtual pets. That’s a bunch of animals, it’s a good thing animals in Free Realms don’t multiply as fast as real animals do.
