I do not want to be a part of this crap if this does ever happen. Let me control the minds of all players for a couple of months..I guarantee that we gamers would get a fair deal every time in the gaming world.

Free to play has become the new hotness but alas...it still amounts to less that epic experiences for consoles so far. Plus, lets face it... EA's free to pay model will amount to you can enter the world for free...after that you need ot pay for everything. I can see bullets in BF3 cost you only $.01 per for premium damage bullets... After you fire of 5000 rounds over a weekend you will understand just how "free" these games will be.

Lets just hope the new f2p gundam game fails.. it'd be horrible if f2p games in the future follow that model.

F2P Gundam game? You mean Hawken?

It's already there with Fifa Ultimate Team and other EA titles. I have a real problem with paying for an obvious advantage or stat boost. I cannot stand DLC that basically promotes "why complete the game when you can by the fully levelled character with all the weapons for 6 quid". Very annoying
