Free Realms reaches 10 million registered players, plans birthday festivities

We've gotta get on this Free Realms thing, apparently. Sony Online Entertainment has announced that the virtual community has just reached ten million members. In fact, two million of those individuals have signed up in the last month alone. What are we missing out on here?

The news comes right before the game's one year anniversary -- Free Realms launched on April 28, 2009, quickly enlisting five million players prior to release. And if you're one of those ten million getting your social on, know that SOE has a plethora of festivities planned for the title's first birthday, including new Rides (balloon animal pets? Hells yes!), two new mini-games, party decorations all over select areas and a variety of community events.
