Moore: Not as binary as switching high-end games free-to-play

EA COO Peter Moore doesn't believe you can just switch "full 12-gigabyte client games" like Need for Speed or Battlefield free-to-play. Instead it's an "evolution that will go on" to the next generation hardware.

There are "huge opportunities" with tablets and smartphones that continue to grow, where "devices are creating games as a service." Moore says it's "less of a thing you buy, more of a place you go." (Industry, PC, Peter Moore, PS3, Xbox 360)

A high end game cant be F2P because lots of people who play F2P games dont have great computers.

This is risky business for all of us. Free to play means Micro transaction guarenteed, as Moore stated, they have to make money somewhere.

The problem is that If you apply this to a game like say Call of Duty. Your going to get charged per map, per gun, per perk, ect. They will give you standard loadout for "free" but you gotta buy the rest of the stuff.

What once was a $60 game, becomes a $300 game if you want the full experience still, under the free to play model.

It's a model that is best just left in the MMO field, you don't want it trust me.
