Sony Online Entertainment's Free Realms continues to go from strength to strength, with the announcement it has clocked up over three million users in just seven weeks.

"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.
