Gaia Gets Voip
On of the many mistakes Linden Lab made with monetizing Second Life was launching Voice FREE of charge. Let's see if GAIA is smart enough not to make this mistake; "Voice chat is coming to Gaia's free MMO, zOMG, via voice services provider Vivox, the companies said today. With Vivox voice chat, gamers will have clan channels they can use to coordinate game play, trade stories and socialize on. Calling voice the "ultimate glue," Vivox CEO Rob Seaver said the deal shows Gaia's "commitment to providing a truly social experience for its players." David Georgeson, senior producer and creative director at Gaia Online, said, "Chat capabilities add a brilliant new element to zOMG! that will bring players together and create excitement within the community."
