X360A: The Future is Free-to-Play, But is That a Good Thing?

EA CEO John Riccitiello: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you’re really not that price sensitive at that point in time.”

i don't have a problem with FTP games as it lets me get a good feel for what i am getting, i may spend £10-£15 on micro transactions BUT thats half the price of a normal game.

i played DCU for a while then decided to invest in the DLC which gave me premium access to the game.....i can't argue with stuff like that as it is an affordable way to play a game.

FTP is defo the biggest money maker in the industry.....when you hear companies like Nexon making billions every year from FTP games you know its not a failing formula.

The future will be diverse as new models are created. But there will always be people want to own what they play. SO say that to future is going to be only this or only that is ignorant and short sided.

And FYI if EA were to ask me for a dollar to reload my gun Id tell them to kiss me ass.

I think that's the point where I'd just find another game to play.

Yeah, the first hit's free, but Battlefield is not heroin.

I can see this Freemium model being abused just like DLC as a way of getting even more money for a game.

Not a big fan of FTP games as the incentive is "Free To Play!!! Pay To Win!!!"

Yeah, not my thing...
