Sal's Realm loves RuneScape. It is because of RuneScape gold this love that we believe RuneScape has been a huge success both as a product and a game. Jagex and the players are extremely respectful of each other and work together to make it the best possible game.

Many players are interested in how Jagex will continue to make money in the coming financial year despite the economic hardships which many of us are facing. Many other games have relied on subscription-based models over the years, but many of the most popular games that are free to play have utilized the micro-transaction model. This is the place where virtual goods and benefits are offered for a small cost in the real world.

Many small online games have used this micro-transaction model to gain huge profits, a choice for which most players are not upset with them--so long as the game is balanced and enjoyable. Some game companies don't believe micro-transactions are in the spirit of their games, and they often give some players unfair advantages. Jagex could be a similar business in the past. The Guardian quoted Mark Gerhard the Jagex CEO as saying:

"A majority of free games are false since they're not. They rely heavily on microtransactions, which is really an unintentional tax. I prefer to call it"death through a thousand cuts." declares Mark Gerhard, the chief executive of RuneScape's creator, Jagex.

His games only make use of the revenue streams from membership and advertising. In-game transactions are not feasible. "It's the psychology behind it. It's much easier to make money by taking 20 cents off each item than asking for the amount of $10 in advance. It's a great chance and a way to look at the future commercial success. Ethically, it can be said to cheap OSRS gold diminish the value of the product.
