  1. As for the reduce/increase tier before 2013, I suspect it will be reduce. Reasoning behind that is your other prediction of ‘More sims/places closing out from lack of money…’.

    As for a buy out, I believe the wording would be ‘Linden Labs gets bought out’ as it is a holder of Second Life, or ‘Second Life gets bought’ as it is the product. If such an event where to happen, I suspect the buyer would be the one reaping the benefits of such a purchase for a long time to come. If I had the money, I’d buy it.


  2. @Cisop: I hope the lab reduces tier next year because that would make a big difference. Many have been saying there will be a buy out of some sort next year. We will see!

    @1920sberlin: I should of added that. Both! ;p

    @Missy: Interesting predictions, thanks! 🙂

    @Inara: Or am I. lol
