Free Realms Soars Past One Million Registrants

Sony Online Entertainment Celebrates
Accomplishment with Lifetime Subscription for Game’s Millionth Registrant and
Limited Edition In-Game Item for All Other Players

Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) today announced
that more than one million unique users have registered for Free Realms, the
free, family-friendly online video game that launched on April 28. To mark this
milestone, SOE is rewarding all current Free Realms players with limited
edition, in-game T-shirt featuring special graphics. The one-millionth player
will also receive a lifetime membership to the game, a one-of-a-kind in-game
astronaut suit, and 10,000 Station Cash.

"The excitement surrounding Free Realms, and the
positive response the game has already received, is overwhelming," said John
Smedley, president of Sony Online Entertainment. "To achieve this milestone so
rapidly speaks to the quality and the fun gameplay experience Free Realms offers
to players of all ages."

Along with the limited edition Free Realms
T-shirt for their character to wear, 999,999 players will receive a matching pet
T-shirt for their four-legged friends, and 200 Station Cash to use toward the
purchase of in-game items.

In Free Realms, players can customize their
characters, explore, quest, battle monsters, and play a wide variety of
minigames in a safe, online environment, packed with stunning visuals,
distinctive environments, and social networking capabilities. Players are free
to do or be anything: Fight like a ninja, cook a tasty meal, raise a pet, battle
goblins, set out on epic quests or connect with friends through a safe, social
networking site. Also available is the Free Realms Trading Card Game: a
full-featured trading card game, playable both digitally within the Free Realms
online game and offline via physical card decks available wherever you buy
trading cards.

The Free Realms game starter cards and Station
Cash cards, which can be used to purchase a membership, in-game items and more,
are available at such stores as Target, Best Buy and 7-11.
