Are Microtransactions The Future Of Gaming?

FruityGamers: Pay To Play? Built In Advertisements?

Gaming prices, currently set around $60 a pop, are simply too high. When you factor in the economy being the way it is, and just how cheap (or free!) and popular mobile, casual gaming is getting, I can safely say I foresee a big price cut coming sometime, likely at the beginning of next generation. (PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

EA would like to think so. People have been voting with their wallets.

YES and NO! It all depends on how you set up your game!

APB Reloaded went from D.O.A. to Doing O.K. all because of microtransactions.

Free 2 Play with Microtransactions is totally cool for everyone as long as it's done right!

Now back to Planetside 2 and putting my new purchases to work on you Vanu and Terran Scumbags! NC 4 Life!
