UPROXX - Square Enix just rolled out a new online service. It’s called Core Online, and it takes a slightly different approach to offering you games through your browser.
Basically, for every minute-long ad you watch, you rack up twenty minutes of play time. You can bank an hour of play time and then watch ads. And, of course, you can buy levels or the whole game for dirt cheap. Hitman: Blood Money, the flagship, is available for $5.
I freely admit, the idea of playing a game and getting interrupted by an ad is incredibly annoying. It’s a “broadcast TV” model. So why do I hope this is the future of gaming?
