Live Gamer Creating In-Game RMT Client for EverQuest 2

Posted Thu, Feb 07, 2008 by Aelryn

Now you can be even lazier about ordering platinum.

Massively has a massive article written by Michael Zenke, one of the top 50 game journalists, about Live Gamer's insidious plans to take over Sony's RMT world.

We've previously discussed the Live Gamer service, a venture-capitalist funded enterprise looking to legitimize RMT in the US marketplace. Their collaboration with Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) has been a topic of discussion since it was announced late last year, but not much was known about what precisely the two companies were working on. In an announcement this morning, they have revealed that Live Gamer (LG) will be effectively taking over SOE's Station Exchange (SE) service. LG will be absorbing the Station Exchange technologies, and retooling them into a service they're calling Live Gamer Exchange. By the end of March Live Gamer will be running SOE's RMT service as an independent third-party enterprise. LG eventually hopes to offer, among other tools, an in-game EverQuest 2 client to access the service.
